Jewish believers in Jesus
Seek the Truth with all your heart.
Jews who believe that Jesus is the Messiah, are known as ‘Messianic Jews.’ It is, of course, very difficult to know what percentage of Jews worldwide believe in Jesus as the Messiah. Many are silent about their Messianic convictions because of the terrible treatment they receive from their families and other Jews.
Orthodox Jews have either refused to accept, OR have not understood the Messianic prophecies in the Old Testament Bible which Jesus fulfilled; OR they have been wrongly taught. Most Jewish Rabbis teach that certain chapters in the Bible, which contain prophetic scriptures, are irrelevant; and therefore most Jews never have the chance to understand and comprehend the magnificent revelations that are contained in the approximately 80 prophecies which Jesus birth, life, ministry, crucifixion and defeating of death, fulfilled in detail. Jesus was and is the Messiah, the promised Saviour, the Son of GOD, the Lamb of GOD, who completed, fulfilled, and finalised the blood sacrificial system.
Hope in the coming of the Messiah is nothing new in Judaism. The Messiah has been spoken about by all the Hebrew prophets and anticipated daily by religious Jews for approximately 4,300 years.
In fact, one of the 13 principles of Jewish faith formulated by the great Jewish sage Maimonides, which is considered a summary of the required beliefs of Judaism, is the firm belief in the coming of the Messiah.
Although most Jewish people still do not believe that Yeshua (Jesus) is this Messiah (Mashiach in Hebrew,) many learned and respected Rabbis and sages have come to realize that He is.
Those who accept Yeshua often do so after investigating the Messianic prophecies in the Hebrew Scriptures.
‘The Messianic Prophecy Project,’ also known as ‘Bibles for Israel,’ are meticulously researching original documents, and producing a Bible which will show clearly all the prophecies which Jesus life irrevocably fulfilled.
‘Jews for Jesus’ is also an organisation which witnesses about Yeshua (Jesus) being the Messiah who GOD promised; who the Orthodox Jews are still waiting for, not knowing that YESHUA is HE.
Prophecies about Jesus the Messiah.
Below is a list of the top twenty major Messianic prophecies which prove that Jesus (Yeshua) was the Messiah to come. The New Testament contains the record of Jesus birth as The Messiah, His life of teaching, healing, death by crucifixion, and defeat of death by rising in an immortal, eternal body; all on behalf of humanity.
These were all prophesied in the Old Testament well before Jesus was born.
