In 2016, the Synod of the EKD declared, “Christians are not called...to show Israel [i.e. the Jewish people] the way to God and His salvation.” This is not an isolated incident.  A growing number of both nominal and theologically conservative Christians in Europe and in the United States have renounced Jewish evangelism of late. Some suggest that sharing the Gospel with Jewish people is anti-Semitic. Others argue that God’s covenant with Abraham is all that a Jewish person needs in order to be saved. 

Do Jews need Jesus, or not? This webinar will examine the biblical foundation for bringing the Gospel to the Jewish people. It will also address sensitive and uncomfortable questions such as:

  • Is Jewish evangelism anti-Semitic? 
  • Has the tragic presence of anti-Jewish teaching in parts of the church made it impossible for Christians to share God’s message of love with His ancient people?
  • Has the Holocaust made it impossible for Jewish people to consider the Good News?
  • How does a refutation of Jewish evangelism negatively impact the cause of world evangelization?
