The Founder of Jews for Jesus, Martin Rosen

By Jews for Torah / February 26, 2017

The prophet Hosea wrote: “My people has been eliminated for lack of knowledge; for you have spurned knowledge and I will spurn you from serving Me; and as you have forgotten the Torah of your G-d, I too, will forget your children.”  Hoshea / Hosea 4:6.

In other words:  throughout history Jews have turned their backs on G-d and followed false gods — many out of ignorance.   This was true in the days of the prophets Isaiah and Ezekiel, and it is true today.

Consider one Moishe (Martin) Rosen (founder of Jews for Jesus).

Rosen was born a Reform Jew and was raised in a secular home.  Ruth Rosen, his daughter, wrote about her father “A certain amount of religious activity was expected in order to show loyalty to the Jewish people, but as is often the case, those activities neither stemmed from nor inspired deeply held spiritual convictions in the Rosen home.  Moishe’s father maintained that “all religion is a racket,” and his mother, while not sharing her husband’s cynicism, did not seem interested in religion.  It would be fair to say that Moishe’s childhood was strongly shaped by Jewish values, but not by the Jewish faith.”

Limited Jewish education (if any) and no Jewish faith.

This then is the person who tried to convince other Jews that one could be a Christian and a Jew — an uneducated, unlearned man with no Jewish faith — according to his very own daughter (in her biography of Rosen).

Rosen then was born to Reform Jewish parents from Austria and converted with his wife to Christianity in 1953.  In 1957 Rosen was an ordained Baptist minister (Northeastern Bible College in New Jersey).   He led Hebrew Christian congregations and worked for the Chosen Peoples Ministry and eventually “Jews for Jesus.”  Rosen was a Christian through and through — a Baptist who was born a Jew and rejected Judaism for Christianity.

These are quotes directly from his biography on the Jews for Jesus website.  “Diploma, Northeastern Bible College, 1957; DD, Western Conservative Baptist Seminary, 1986. Ordained to ministry Baptist Church, 1957.”

As you can see, it is clear that he became an ORDAINED BAPTIST MINISTER IN 1957 and he is also a graduate of two Christian colleges; Northeast Bible College and the Western Conservative Baptist Seminary!

Here is more information on him which was taken from the Jews for Jesus website:  “Trustee Western Conservative Baptist Seminary, Portland, Oreg., 1979-85, 86-91, International Council on Biblical Inerrancy, Oakland, Calif., 1979-89; board of directors, Christian Advocates Serving Evangelism, 1987-91. Received Hero of the Faith Award from the Conservative Baptist Assoc. of America on July 7, 1997.”

Clearly, this is not the resume of a Jew, but of a Christian minister! Here is the proof link so you can see all of this on the Jews for Jesus website.

However, there is, even more, evidence that Rosen is a Christian. Reverend Rosen’s resume used to be found on the Carlsbad Community Church website, “Reverend Rosen is a member of two churches, the First Baptist Church in San Francisco and Lake Avenue Congregational Church in Pasadena (under “Home Churches”).”

Rosen talked about his ministry experiences. This is a direct quote from the Jews for Jesus website“So What’s a Pastor Good For Anyway? By Moishe Rosen, Founder. . .  While training to become a minister, I worked part-time at Sears and Roebuck. One of my co-workers made a not-so-funny joke when he said, “I wouldn’t mind being a preacher myself. All you have to do is preach two or three sermons a week, and you can spend the rest of the time playing golf.” I’m sure he knew that a minister puts in more time than just the stated hours of the church service, but in all seriousness, I doubt if most people have that understanding. The church needs instruction in this area from an objective source.”

To get an idea of Reverend Rosen’s thinking, I believe it helps to see where he has studied. Please read the mission section of the Western Conservative Baptist Seminary this is a school trying to produce CHURCH leaders. Obviously, it is not a Jewish educational institution

It seems pretty obvious that a real Jewish group would not be founded by a Church minister!
