There is an upsurge in interest among secular and religious Israelis to know more about Jesus.
The Messianic ministry Revive Israel located just outside Jerusalem reports that its staff and partner ministries have experienced an upsurge in interest among secular and religious Israelis in the person and ministry of Yeshua (Jesus).
In their latest newsletter, Sahar S. writes that a group of 40 young Israeli college students recently visited the Revive Israel offices to ask questions regarding Jesus and the New Testament for a course on Israeli history and culture.
“They were surprised to discover that the promise of a new covenant is written in the Hebrew prophets (Jeremiah 31). The biggest news to them was that Yeshua loved the God of Israel and that His teachings were focused on a fulfillment of the moral law in the Ten Commandments (Matthew 5),” said Sahar.
“A number of them came with pre-conceived ideas and even anger towards Messianic Jews. At the end of the meeting a young religious man came and admitted that his perspective had changed about who we are – Israeli Jews who believe in Yeshua.”
The group was reportedly surprised at the level of kindness shown by the Messianics despite frequent harassment of and attacks on believers in Jesus in Israel.
The newsletter also included an update on a 4-week Jews for Jesus campaign in central Israel that is currently winding down. Ze’ev N. writes that the group received contact information from no fewer than 2,000 Israelis interested in hearing more about Jesus.

The Bible, says the people of Israel will have no choice, but to seeks for their Messiah. Those who seek, shall find Him.
In Israel, there are now more than 20.000 Jews who believe that Y’shua (Jesus) is the Mesisah. The number is rapidly growing.
Observing the law of Moses, has not made the Jewish nation more righteous than in the ancient days. The Spiritual needs of the Jews can only be fulfilled in their Messiah, Jesus from Nazareth.
He will soon return. He will save Israel. Amen.
