The director of our Brooklyn Center, Robert, has seen God do some pretty incredible things recently. One day a number of Orthodox Jewish men came to the services, and this was not the first time. Robert writes, “They are coming from different places and for different reasons. I believe God is drawing them by His Spirit.” One of these men, Elias,* showed up and began asking very pointed questions about Jesus and how it was possible for the Jewish people to believe in Him. Robert assured him that Jesus was Jewish and that the New Testament is a very Jewish book. This sparked a half hour conversation about the Gospel. Elias admitted that he has not read the New Testament, so Robert challenged him to read it for himself and then make a decision about whether or not Jesus is Messiah. The man agreed that this would be the best thing to do but still refused to take a copy. He did, however, take a copy of Isaiah 53 Explained in Hebrew and promised to read it and return. Please pray for Elias, that he will read the New Testament, see the Jewish Messiah on its pages and be saved!
Chosen People Ministries exists to pray for, evangelize, disciple, and serve Jewish people everywhere and to help fellow believers do the same. The mission was founded in Brooklyn, New York in 1894 by Rabbi Leopold Cohn, a Hungarian Jewish immigrant with a zeal to share the knowledge of Yeshua (Jesus) the Messiah with God’s chosen people.
