A debate that's 2,000 years old, and running…
Do Jews need Jesus? Its an age-old debate with eternal ramifications. If Jesus is not the Jewish Messiah, if He is not the savior of the world, if He is not the promised redeemer God sent to restore Israel and redeem the nations (Isaiah 49:6), then bringing His message to the Jewish people is a grave threat to their security.
But if He is the prophet God promised to raise up, if God did indeed command Israel to follow Him, and if the Jews will be held accountable by God if they dont accept Jesus, then sharing His message is beyond imperative. Jesus is either "Lord of all or not Lord at all." The stakes couldnt be higher.
Jews Dont Need Jesus… and Other Misconceptions settles this dispute with biblical evidence. It argues that believing in Jesus isnt apostasy; its obedience, and it leads to eternal blessing. Thats what makes this book critical for Jewish people or anyone in gospel ministry to the Jews.
Terry5 Stars Out Of 5Excellent and much-needed!January 7, 2018TerryQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Jews Don't Need Jesus & Other Misconceptions by Avi Snyder is a book that approaches a people group that Christians typically fail to evangelize perhaps more than any other. This book is written so tenderly, yet with unwavering determination and commitment to truth, and as such, is a superb tool for outreach, apologetic, and evangelistic purposes. John Piper writes the forward and agrees that Snyder has written a scripturally-based book to help Jews consider the truths of Christianity, and he handles common objections with ease and forthrightness. Responding to misconceptions like "all Israel will be saved eventually" and "the church needs to repent, not proclaim" Jews Don't Need Jesus & Other Misconceptions is a much needed, long-awaited entry into an area of evangelism, in which the Church needs to consider doing more, or at a minimum, educating their congregations and leaders. I highly encourage you to read Snyder's book as his knowledge comes from both his conservative Jewish upbringing and his Christian education from Fuller Theological Seminary.

thechristianscribeArizonaAge: 25-34Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5To The Jew First!July 4, 2017thechristianscribeArizonaAge: 25-34Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5"...to the Jew first, and also to the Greek" (Gentile) Romans 1:16. Those are the words of God to Paul. And if the Word of God commands us to minister to the Jews, why shouldn't any God-fearing Christian do so? This book was easy for me to read and digest. I've always had a deep respect and love for the Jewish people and stand strong for Israel. This book reinforced my love for the Jews and motivated me to minister to them as well, which is the biggest display of love Christians could ever demonstrate to the people of Israel.
Mr. Snyder, a Jewish believer in the Messiah, has written this book for those who believe that Christianity is not for the Jew and to those who might be intimidated, doubtful, or adamantly against Jewish evangelism. In the first two chapters, he addresses what the Bible says about evangelizing to the Jews. He refutes 16 claims Christians have made to him personally and misconceptions many others might have.
Among these are:
Jews are already saved because they're natural, elected, and chosen
God's covenants with Abraham and Moses
Jews will be judged only according to the light that they've received
Jesus is Israel's only but anonymous Savior
Jewish people can't believe because they are hardened, blind, and veiled from seeing the Truth
All Israel will be saved eventually
Jesus is just for the Gentiles
The church needs to repent, not proclaim
Aliyah is the real priority
Reconciliation must come first
Silent love speaks louder than Gospel words
It's time to comfort, not confront
Jewish evangelism is finishing the work Hitler started
Jewish evangelism is an attack on Judaism
The Holocaust had made Jewish evangelism all but impossible
Gentiles can't witness to Jews
Witnessing to the Jewish people shouldn't be intimidating. It is time to do away with all excuses and be obedient to our calling as Children of God. If we can witness to Gentiles, then we can most definitely witness to the people God chose to bring us the Truth of His Kingdom. After all, Jesus was a Jew. What a great honor and privilege we have to reach out to the Jews with the message of salvation! I highly recommend this book to those with doubts, bias, disagreements, and those fearful of evangelizing to the Jewish people. If there is a group of people who deserve to know about the Messiah, it is the people of Israel! Thank you to Avi Snyder, this book was much much needed! I will be recommending it to everyone!
