While not so frequent, you may know someone at school, your workplace or in your community who is Jewish (their religion is Judaism and is based on God giving the law and commandment scriptures – called ‘Torah’ to the biblical person of Moses).
HOW DO YOU DISCUSS GOD WITH A JEW?
That’s a great question! Recently we told you about an app from Dare 2 Share that helps you to share your faith! It’s a pretty sick app, if you haven’t checked it out yet, get deets here.
This app has a section in it where it links to a resource that helps you to discuss your faith with people who have different beliefs about how they understand the world/life/God/existence (called ‘Worldview’ see our article here). It explores how to have conversation with 13 people, each with a different worldview/belief. It’s under the section called ‘How 2 Share’.
For each person/worldview you’re given a basic description, questions to get the conversation going, areas to admire, a summary of that person’s core beliefs and tips for how to share your faith with that person.
Here’s some highlights on how to engage a Jewish person in conversation about God.
Q to ask – What do you believe about Jesus Christ?
Areas to Admire – belief in one God, Jesus and the Old Testament.
Beliefs – believe in the same God of the universe that Christians do – the One revealed in the Bible as Yahweh.
Tips – They may not have heard much about Jesus. When you feel it could be appropriate, talk about how Jesus literally and perfectly fulfilled over 300 prophecies made about the coming Messiah.

Remember… you can’t argue someone to faith in Christ, but you can (and should) live such a Christlike life that those around you sense, see and experience something different and counter-cultural in you, which opens the door for you to explain the ‘evidence’.
