What Every Christian Should Know About Jewish People
by Sheryl Young
If you're like me. You don't know a lot of people who are Jewish. And those of your friends that are, you probably avoid the topic of faith with them. You know that they are God's chosen people, that Jesus himself was a Jew, and that their people never accepted Jesus as the Messiah. But beyond that, you don't know how to explain to a Jewish person how they've misunderstood the Gospel. I am the author of a book called The Little Pot The Little Pot and since Little Pot's story only speaks of the potter and the clay - which is an Old testament parable of our relationship with God, many Jewish schools and people love my book. Not until they meet me and engage in conversation do they realize that I view the potter to be Christ as well as God the Father. That's why I was excited when I found Sheryl's book,
"What Every Christian Should Know About Jewish People".
In this book Sheryl answers questions like:
Why is it imperative for every Christian to gain a fresh, love-filled perspective toward the Jewish people today?
What makes a person consider him or herself Jewish?
Do Jewish people really need to be "converted"?
When Sheryl's husband gave his life to Jesus, she thought, "How can I, a girl from a Jewish family, be married to a Christian?" She set out to prove the Gospel wrong. But the moment she really studied the Old Testament and dared to compare it with the New, everything changed. She fell in love with "Yeshua," saw her Jewish heritage with new appreciative eyes, and realized the two could fit perfectly together.
Sheryl has been a "Jewish believer in Jesus" since 1987. She wrote this book for Christians to answer the many questions Christians have asked her over the years about Judaism, the Jewish peoples' culture, faith, and why Jewish people are hesitant to accept the Gospel message of Christ as their true Messiah.
I am so thankful this book is out there. It isn't enough for Jewish people to know about the potter of the old testament and not accept Christ as their Messiah. They can never become Fruit Pots like Little Pot and bear the fruit of the Holy Spirit otherwise.
A Must Read Jan 21, 2010
This book is a "must read" for any serious Christian who wants to know the true origin of their faith and who desire to be well grounded in why they believe what they believe.
As a fellow Messianic Jew I have been quite amazed at the level of total ignorance by most "gentile" Christians as to the Jewishness of belief in Jesus Christ and how He is the fulfillment of all the Messianic prophecies. I expect this ignorance from my fellow non believing Jews for most of them are ignorant of what the Torah and Old Testament reaches but there is no excuse for those claiming to be Christian. I have observed that nowadays, most everyday Christians know very little or don't believe at all the essentials of their own faith (such as the virgin birth, the trinity, the physical resurrection, salvation through faith alone, etc.); let alone Bible prophecy which comprises almost 2/3's of the Bible text and has always pointed exclusively to Yeshua (Jesus) as Messiah.
With warmth, humor and an easy way with words, Sheryl describes in very easy to understand terms the Jewishness of the Christian faith (or "The Way" as it was originally termed), the significance of the Jewish feast days ordained by God and how they were (and still shall be) fulfilled by Jesus and what they mean.
She has done a very thorough job in researching and showcasing all the history, culture and religious aspects which make up today's Jewish people and her book would serve as an excellent "primer" for both mature and young believers alike. With all the increased rise of anti-antisemitism in the world, this book should be required reading in all the churches! The Victor
A fascinating read for any Christian, or for someone curious about Judaism and/or Christianity. Nov 19, 2008
The Jewish people and the Judaic faith have been around for approximately 4000 years, beginning with the biblical patriarch Abraham, and God's promise to make his descendants a great nation. Christianity emerged about 1500 years later, following the ministry, crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ, as the apostles began their ministries resulting in the rise of the early church. Both faiths are centered around the same God, so why is it so hard for these two sibling faiths to get along? AC Producer and author Sheryl Young offers some insight into that question in her book What Every Christian Should Know About the Jewish People: Improving the Church's Relationship with God's Original Chosen Nation.
Sheryl has been a Jewish believer in Jesus for over twenty years. In a world of renewed anti-Semitism, and a growing tide of anti-Christian sentiment, she suggests that this is no time for Christians and their Jewish counterparts to be at odds with one another. This should be a time for building bridges between these two historic faiths, creating solidarity between Jewish people and Christians. We all need to come together and work in concert during a time when persecution may lie ahead for both the Christian and the Jew. We must stand together.
What Every Christian Should Know About the Jewish People aims to help the Christian gain a better understanding of the their Jewish counterparts. Sheryl takes the reader inside the Jewish faith, customs and traditions. The reader also learns how the Jewish holidays originated, and how they are observed today (Sheryl even shares some of her family's favorite holiday recipes). Young also tackles several important questions such as: What makes a person "Jewish" (or "Christian," for that matter)? Why does Israel deserve to exist? Or, do Jewish people really need to be "converted"? (Sheryl offers a very interesting take on that one)
Young devotes a section of her book to understanding several reasons why Jewish people find it difficult to accept Jesus as the Messiah, ranging from past persecution of the Jews to their being wrongly blamed for the crucifixion of Christ. Another section examines the scriptures as truth, how the Old Testament points to the New Testament (more specifically, to Jesus), and how the OT and NT truly mesh together. In addition, Young examines many of the OT prophecies regarding the Messiah, and how Jesus fulfilled those prophecies. She also shares with the reader her own testimony of how she came to accept Jesus as the Messiah, and as her Savior.
What Every Christian Should Know About the Jewish People is a fascinating read, which I recommend for any Christian, or for any non-believer who is curious about Judaism and/or Christianity. Sheryl has done an excellent job of helping those of us Christians who did not from come a Jewish background to better understand God's original Chosen People, who today are still His Chosen. This is no time for sibling rivalry between Christians and Jews. With a time of persecution against members of both faiths awaiting around the corner, this is a time when we should be seeking some common ground and standing to weather the coming trials together. Sheryl's book offers some great steps in moving towards that goal.
What Every Christian Should Know About The Jewish People Aug 4, 2008
I think this book is really good. I learned about the Jewish people and their believes. Sheryl shows how the Jewish and Christian believes come together as one. She ties the Old and New Testaments together, so anyone could see,the two believes fit hand in hand. This book is full of great information to use as a reference.
