Jews for Jesus Messianic Jewish Christian Sect

Jews for JesusMessianic Jewish Christian sect has about 200,000 people in the United States and calls itself Jews for Jesus, despite that many of the group are gentiles. The sect is part of the Evangelical Christian movement which does not differentiate between gentiles and Jews and is not Jewish despite its misleading name. One who knows exactly what “Jews for Jesus” believe in, keeps their distance from this eccentric sect and will pay no attention to it. The only ones who will fall victim into this Christian missions’ net are those who are ignorant of their claims. These Christian missionaries utilize their ignorance to falsely claim that “the rabbis hid” from the Jews important information about Jesus and the Bible.  They will try to create a picture of menacing and lying rabbis reminiscent of the Protocols of the Elders of Zion while presenting themselves as individuals faithful to the literal meaning of the Bible. They will talk mainly about the prophecies of the Bible, and later will present Jesus as a historical figure whose name was distorted by rabbis from his original name “Yeshua” (meaning “he will bring salvation”) to “Yeshu” (whose letters are an acronym of the contemptuous phrase: “may he and his memory be blotted out”).  The missionaries publish newsletters and ads with their slogan “Yeshu = Yeshua = salvation.”  They argue that the rabbis have been hiding the truth about Jesus and hiding the prophecies of the Bible from the masses for thousands of years, in order to deprive Jews of the truths of the Bible.  According to the missionaries, it is sufficient to read the Bible literally to see clear evidence that Jesus is the Messiah. (The only trouble is, all those “Elders of Zion” crooks and villains who have been hiding the Old Testament prophecies about Jesus, have been passing down the Biblical writings for thousands of years in their entirety, and somehow forgot to delete those prophecies that in the Christian view clearly verify Christianity…).  It is easy to understand that all the power of this Christian sect lies in the atmosphere of secrecy that they convey to their followers: the claim that there is a hidden truth in the Bible that many do not know, which the rabbis have been hiding for thousands of years from their followers.  If this monstrous, ancient lie about Jewish sages were not enough, the Jewish apostates to this form of Christianity even present themselves as observant Jews who eat kosher and affix a mezuzah on their front door and sometimes even wear tefillin too, as part of their effort to disguise their apostasy from the Torah.  Messianic Jews will not tell you that they are not against assimilating with gentiles and intermarriage.  Jews for Jesus / Messianic Jews often hide their Christian identity, as well as their principles of belief. They will talk mainly about the Bible, about prophecies and the Torah commandments, and they will only reveal their true beliefs to those who are deepening their commitment to the sect.  Missionaries for Jesus do not want you to know that great and prominent rabbis have documented their historical religious disputes with Christians, and not only they never covered up the Christians’ claims, but they dealt with all of them in books published hundreds of years ago.  Among them, you will find the famous dispute of Rabbi Yosef Albo (Disputation at Tortosa), and the Ramban’s dispute, in which the Jewish sages relate to all the claims of the Christians concerning the Trinity and prophecy. One who reads their arguments can easily deal with the claims of any missionary.  Ironically, the sect that repeatedly claims that “the rabbis are hiding the truth from us”, are doing this themselves, by concealing from their listeners the truth about their own sect and its bizarre beliefs. As the sages say: “One who disqualifies, shows he has the same blemish.”
