I came back down the hill and I said, “You know Mike,” “all this time the truth was” “right in front of our noses!” I was born into a Jewish family both my mom and my dad came from broken homes. Both of them just had miserable family life and knew very little about parenting they had terrible examples from their parents. Just shy of my 12th birthday it was decided that they would send me to a boarding school that began a 6 year journey of adapting to things that I just was not prepared to adapt to. No parents around, influenced by anything, everything… Eventually got introduced to drugs and by the time I graduated from prep school became a very regular drug user. Marijuana became LSD and LSD became all kinds of amphetamines and pills… Basically just was looking for the next high the next party, the next pleasure. Got into Syracuse University my sophomore year, my buddy came to visit me and he said, “You know last summer I went to California” “I had the greatest time!” “Why don’t we just quit school?” We wound up settling in a small town in Southern Oregon. We actually acquired some property a 20 acre piece of property that had a log house and a cabin. We decided let’s move into the cabin and rent out the house. We found four other hippies looking for a place to live. That went on for a couple months until one day something pretty drastic happened. Got a phone call: they were on their way back, and they had a van full of drugs, their van went off the side of the road stuff went flying all over the place. The police arrived and now all four of them were in jail. Police cars were driving seemed like they were all over where our property was and so we’re introduced to a new thing at that particular time called paranoia. We decided we’re gonna hitchhike to Mexico. We went to the main crossroad of town. The first car that picked us up was a guy and he started telling us about Jesus. Talking about scripture verses and not only was I not interested I didn’t even understand what he was saying. We spent the night that day at this ranch and the next morning they took us to the coast highway and we stuck out our thumbs and the first car that picked us up was a Christian family. And they started asking us questions about God and whether we believed in Jesus and sharing the gospel with us. Couple hundred miles south we wind up in Mendocino And we’re standing on the Coast Highway. A pickup truck pulls about 100 ft away from us. A guy gets out of the passenger side, comes right up to me, and he says, “Do you know that Jesus loves you?” We wound up who knows where I don’t remember what happened, and I think I’m probably glad I don’t remember what happened. There were a couple times I thought we were gonna get killed… It was pretty bizarre, and we were pretty lost. About three weeks later we made it back up to Oregon. Something inside of me, I had this desire I want to get a hold of this book this Bible. So I went into town and in a drugstore I saw a Bible and I bought the Bible and I took it home and opened to the New Testament. Now it was really important to me that Mike not know what I was doing because I thought he would make fun of me and so I would go up and and I began to read. I was just overwhelmed with the gospel, the story of Jesus I couldn’t stop reading. After I think probably 2, 2½ weeks I began to read my journal of my trip, and I got to the part where that guy that came up to me outside of Mendocino had asked me to pray and I remember feeling like I really wanted to do that when he had asked me and I never did, and so I took a walk and I walked up behind where a house was up this kind of hill and I closed my eyes and I just said, “God if you’re there, if you’re real,” “I want to know.” I opened my eyes and I just knew – I knew God was real. I came back down the hill Mike was there. I said, “You know, Mike” “all this time the truth was” “right in front of our noses!” And he said, “Yeah, I know.” We start talking and it turns out the daughter of the realtor was a Christian woman and she had given Mike a Bible. He was reading it and hiding it from me at the same time that I was reading the one I got and hiding it from him. So we just started all a sudden talking about God. And then we started getting letters from these guys that were in jail – we hadn’t seen them in probably about a month or so and all four of them without speaking to each other had met Christians in prison and had become believers in Jesus. We wound up getting invited to a church people just embraced us, and I started going to church and hearing the gospel presented and I remember in those early days just every time there was an altar call I raised my hand I just wanted God in my life I wanted him to to forgive and to wash the sin out of my heart and as I would go I would actually physically feel that God has taken this 20 year old young man who had no purpose, no reason no desire to do anything… I started to just read the Word of God and I get to read the Old Testament and just everything fit together and even to the point of my own sense of Jewishness. Really for the first time I really felt like I was Jewish. I love now to be in situations and to say what I often say to people, “You know Jesus wasn’t a Christian” “Jesus was a Jew!” The New Testament is Jewish. I could just feel my life just being totally changed and falling in love with this Jesus who had every answer for every question that I had. Jesus has become everything to me.

Hi
All we like sheep have gone astray and He comes and finds His sheep. Bless you for brightening my life with your wonderful testimony. I can't get enough of these! Baaa!

Jesus really was after you. That is a awesome testimony.. Jewish Jesus, Jesus Messiah, loves His people still. He has not given up hope on you guys. I love Jesus, all the neat stories, you guys share is emotional to listen to. I am so happy to hear this. Because I want my Jesus to be happy, & His people coming back to Him makes Him Happy. I just want my Jesus to be Happy, He paid my price an now, I just want Him smiling. That cost Him His life, but it was because He first loved us & wanted us happy.

I am sorry Lord for what I did, to cause you so much pain. I just want to live for eternity praising your Holy Name humbling myself before you & exalting your Holy Name, The Name Above All Names, on high. Come Lord Jesus Come, I don't belong to this world. I belong with you.

Lord Open the hearts & eyes to your people Lord. Let them Praise Your Holy Name Forever. I want to be different, I want to changed until all of me is gone and all that remains is You. Amen

God Bless you all, Jesus is one Amazing God.

Thank you for beautiful testamony impress me alot but please don't go to idol worshipper church is easy to influence us. only JESUS is the way the true and the light.AMEN.

I’m a Christian,came out from the catholic, but as you said Sir, that our Lord Jesus, is and was not a Christian, our Lord Jesus was a Jew, but what I’ve known is that , those who believe in Him( to our Lord Jesus Christ, Yeshua) ) are called Christians. That’s what I’ve heard from inside of me, when I asked God who are those called Christians, because at that time, like you Sir, I don’t have knowledge about the Holy Scriptures when I met the Lord Jesus and when my time came to wake up and to know the truth, that was in the year 2012 first week of December, then 2013,when I started to read the Holy Bible.
When I met the Lord Jesus, I felt His love, the kind of love that none of us can have or can do the same, I’ve known that He loves all, with no partiality, but I also knew that we will all be judged with no partiality, and our destiny will be given to us, according to our choice.

For God is love. Wow – may our Father in heaven bless you dear brother in Christ.

Thank you Jesus. "We love him because he first loved us."

Romans 10:20 And Isaiah boldly says, "I was found by those who did not seek me; I revealed myself to those who did not ask for me."

Acts 17:30 God has overlooked the times when people did not know him, but now he commands all of them everywhere to turn away from their evil ways.

Galatians 3:26 For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus.

These testimonies are so edifying!

I would prefer that the author not imply that Jesus was not Christian but was Jewish. This can lead some to believe that it is bad to be a Christian, and better to be Jewish. Some could think that being a Christian is like a race, and it is better to be Jewish than a Christian follower of Jesus. I'm sure he did not mean this in a negative sense as it was clear he was very complimentary to all those Christians who helped him when he was struggling with his own identity, and his own relationship to God. If one understands what the Visible Church means they will see it broken into two distinct categories. The "being" (visible but unfaithful to Scripture doctrine, worship, form of government and discipline) and "well-being" (visible faithful to Scripture). As the 7,000 who did not bow their knee to Baal, God always preservers a faithful elect in well-being among the visible professing Church.

Jesus is not a Christian of course. He is the Christ, the Messiah. Christians are those who believe and follow Him. They are named after Jesus, the Christof God, the Messiah of God. The Messiah is the Promised Seed to Abraham. Abraham was a Hebrew. The Messiah, the Christ is a Hebrew, a Jew. Jesus is a Jew, a Hebrew.

Awesome! The overwhelming, never ending, reckless love of God! It chases me down. Fights til I’m found. Leaves the 99! I couldn’t earn it. I’ll never deserve it! Still you give Yourself away!

At 7:10 Ron says he likes to tell people, "Ya know, Jesus wasn't a Christian ! Jesus was a JEW !"  There's debate about that. What's the definition of a Jew ? And from what Ive heard, the word "Jew" didn't even EXIST in the days of Jesus…didn't come into existence until a few hundred years ago. So what did these people REALLY call themselves in those days? Hebrews? Israelites ? What ? ! What do we MEAN by the word "Jew" ?   Did all Jews think alike in Jesus' day? (Do all Jews think alike today? No !)  Were there good Jews who chose to treat others with justice?  Probably. But were there Jews who chose to TAKE from others, Jews who wanted to amass power and wealth in their own hands and take it from other Jews and non-Jews alike? Were most of the Jewish political, social and religious leaders CORRUPT !? Apparently so, as we see Jesus criticizing the scribes and Pharisees strongly.  Ron was surprised to learn that Jesus was a Jew I speculate bc Jews , Jewish leaders today dont like to tell their fellow Jews that Jesus was Jewish. . Rabbis dont want to tell their congregations that. They omit it from their teaching. So was Jesus was a person of Hebreaic heritage?Perhaps. But thats not enough ! Choosing a path of justice and ethics, THATS what matters ! Jesus may have been of Hebrew ancestors but he LAMBASTED other people of Hebrew ancestors because of their evil. So being a so-called Jew isn't ENOUGH.  Some Jews today like to say "Jesus was one of OUR guys !" trying to make themselves look good. Trying to get a pass on bad behavior . Not gonna work !   Jesus stood AGAINST the corruption of corrupt Jews in His day and we need also to stand up against corrupt Jews ( and non-Jews)  today.

HALLELUYAH!!!
ברוך שמו ! שמע ישראל יהוה אלהינו יהוה אחד!! 🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏💕💕💕💕💕

I am reminded and so very glad that Jesus came to set us free from the law of sin and death.  Love this so much.   I was honestly shocked that a lot of young Jewish people have no idea that Jesus was definitely of Jewish descent.

Beautiful truth but now lack know the words of the Israelite prophets in America,
Here I will leave him a summary of the book of mormon that talks about the Messiah,
They knew of his coming and salvation even 600 years before the birth:

Isaiah 53 is very similar to this summary in these chapter in the book of mormon

Moshia. Chapter 3
King Benjamin continues his address–The Lord Omnipotent will minister among men in a tabernacle of clay–Blood will come from every pore as He atones for the sins of the world–His is the only name whereby salvation comes–Men can put off the natural man and become Saints through the Atonement–The torment of the wicked will be as a lake of fire and brimstone. About 124 B.C.

1 And again my brethren, I would call your attention, for I have somewhat more to speak unto you; for behold, I have things to tell you concerning that which is to come.
2 And the things which I shall tell you are made known unto me by an angel from God. And he said unto me: Awake; and I awoke, and behold he stood before me.
3 And he said unto me: Awake, and hear the words which I shall tell thee; for behold, I am come to declare unto you the glad tidings of great joy.
4 For the Lord hath heard thy prayers, and hath judged of thy righteousness, and hath sent me to declare unto thee that thou mayest rejoice; and that thou mayest declare unto thy people, that they may also be filled with joy.
5 For behold, the time cometh, and is not far distant, that with power, the Lord Omnipotent who reigneth, who was, and is from all eternity to all eternity, shall come down from heaven among the children of men, and shall dwell in a tabernacle of clay, and shall go forth amongst men, working mighty miracles, such as healing the sick, raising the dead, causing the lame to walk, the blind to receive their sight, and the deaf to hear, and curing all manner of diseases.
6 And he shall cast out devils, or the evil spirits which dwell in the hearts of the children of men.
7 And lo, he shall suffer temptations, and pain of body, hunger, thirst, and fatigue, even more than man can suffer, except it be unto death; for behold, blood cometh from every pore, so great shall be his anguish for the wickedness and the abominations of his people.
8 And he shall be called Jesus Christ, the Son of God, the Father of heaven and earth, the Creator of all things from the beginning; and his mother shall be called Mary.
9 And lo, he cometh unto his own, that salvation might come unto the children of men even through faith on his name; and even after all this they shall consider him a man, and say that he hath a devil, and shall scourge him, and shall crucify him.
10 And he shall rise the third day from the dead; and behold, he standeth to judge the world; and behold, all these things are done that a righteous judgment might come upon the children of men.
11 For behold, and also his blood atoneth for the sins of those who have fallen by the transgression of Adam, who have died not knowing the will of God concerning them, or who have ignorantly sinned.
12 But wo, wo unto him who knoweth that he rebelleth against God! For salvation cometh to none such except it be through repentance and faith on the Lord Jesus Christ.
13 And the Lord God hath sent his holy prophets among all the children of men, to declare these things to every kindred, nation, and tongue, that thereby whosoever should believe that Christ should come, the same might receive remission of their sins, and rejoice with exceedingly great joy, even as though he had already come among them.

14 Yet the Lord God saw that his people were a stiffnecked people, and he appointed unto them a law, even the law of Moses.
15 And many signs, and wonders, and types, and shadows showed he unto them, concerning his coming; and also holy prophets spake unto them concerning his coming; and yet they hardened their hearts, and understood not that the law of Moses availeth nothing except it were through the atonement of his blood.
16 And even if it were possible that little children could sin they could not be saved; but I say unto you they are blessed; for behold, as in Adam, or by nature, they fall, even so the blood of Christ atoneth for their sins.
17 And moreover, I say unto you, that there shall be no other name given nor any other way nor means whereby salvation can come unto the children of men, only in and through the name of Christ, the Lord Omnipotent.
18 For behold he judgeth, and his judgment is just; and the infant perisheth not that dieth in his infancy; but men drink damnation to their own souls except they humble themselves and become as little children, and believe that salvation was, and is, and is to come, in and through the atoning blood of Christ, the Lord Omnipotent.
19 For the natural man is an enemy to God, and has been from the fall of Adam, and will be, forever and ever, unless he yields to the enticings of the Holy Spirit, and putteth off the natural man and becometh a saint through the atonement of Christ the Lord, and becometh as a child, submissive, meek, humble, patient, full of love, willing to submit to all things which the Lord seeth fit to inflict upon him, even as a child doth submit to his father.
20 And moreover, I say unto you, that the time shall come when the knowledge of a Savior shall spread throughout every nation, kindred, tongue, and people.
21 And behold, when that time cometh, none shall be found blameless before God, except it be little children, only through repentance and faith on the name of the Lord God Omnipotent.
22 And even at this time, when thou shalt have taught thy people the things which the Lord thy God hath commanded thee, even then are they found no more blameless in the sight of God, only according to the words which I have spoken unto thee.
23 And now I have spoken the words which the Lord God hath commanded me.
24 And thus saith the Lord: They shall stand as a bright testimony against this people, at the judgment day; whereof they shall be judged, every man according to his works, whether they be good, or whether they be evil.
25 And if they be evil they are consigned to an awful view of their own guilt and abominations, which doth cause them to shrink from the presence of the Lord into a state of misery and endless torment, from whence they can no more return; therefore they have drunk damnation to their own souls.
26 Therefore, they have drunk out of the cup of the wrath of God, which justice could no more deny unto them than it could deny that Adam should fall because of his partaking of the forbidden fruit; therefore, mercy could have claim on them no more forever.
27 And their torment is as a lake of fire and brimstone, whose flames are unquenchable, and whose smoke ascendeth up forever and ever. Thus hath the Lord commanded me. Amen

Hallelujah! Lord, You are good… we give You praise and we bless Your Name, the Name above every other name, the name of Jesus Christ, the Son of the Living God.

JESUS WAS AN ISRAELITE BY BLOODLINE FROM THE TRIBE OF JUDAH… AND HE WASN'T JEWISH.. JEWISH IS NOT IN THE BIBLE JEWISH IS A RELIGION LIKE MUSLIMS CHRISTIAN BUDDHISM AND MANY MORE!!

Los padres de la iglesia convirtieron al Mesías judío en un mito herencia del anterior estatus quo politeista helenista y pagano de los antiguos imperios idolatras y por supuesto antisemitas y judeofobos Así podemos entender en cómo desde la destrucción del Templo de Jerusalén el pueblo judío tuvo que vivir tiempos tan terribles como la inquisición los ghettos la expulsión la exclusión progomos acusaciones falsas diáspora nazismo terrorismo islámico etc.Más El pacto de HASHEM con ABRAHAM y sus descendientes es ETERNO Y YESHUA HA MASHIAJ VIVE Y REINA a la derecha del ABBA y en el cuerpo la sangre y el espíritu de TODOS y cada UNO de los JUDÍOS en ISRAEL en los cuatro continentes dónde las semillas fueron esparcidas y en las ovejas perdidas que están regresando como el Hijo pródigo que apartandose de la TORA estuvo muerto Pero que con la resurrección del Mesías y tal como anunciaron los profetas ISRAEL es una LUZ en el mundo Y en su nombre todas las familias de la tierra serán bendecidas SHALOM

Jesus was a Jew! And that puts all the pieces together between the Old and New Testaments! Because Jesus
emanates Love in all His teachings, He came for His Own back then and now He comes again to reveal Himself
to His Own. But this time they Will See Him! And they Will Know Him! May Our Lord and God Bless All who Seek
Him in Humility and Love!

The gospel is an attractive well directed Greek drama. Sure one can change chemical drugs for a spiritual drug. What about normal people, are they attracted to this play and buy a ticket?

What I find funny is how so many people equate the Tanakh with the Jewish religion …the Jewish religion follows the Talmud and only references the Tanakh … Yashua and the tribes were Hebrews …the ten tribes , the House of Israel were scattered and reason throughout the world , the Christian nations if you will.

The House of Judah went into bondage in Babylon as Hebrews and came out as Jews following the Talmud , this is were the Talmud was born .

I am the First and I am the Last, and
besides Me there is no other G-d

I am the First (I have no father)

I am the Last (I have no son)

besides Me there is no other G-d
(I have no brother or co-creator)

Eph 2:15 Jesus was the first born of a new creation, Its no longer about who we are according to the flesh. Jew, German or Japanese it makes no difference. Are you a new creation? Have you been born again? These things God would desire for all people.

False religions, many who directly hate the Jewish people and nation of Israel, have destroyed the term "Christian" with blatant destruction of GOD's KINGDOM their goals for centuries.   They do not fool GOD one bit!  GOD loves Israel!

Love statement in this man's story where he learned that JESUS is not Christian!  JESUS – LAMB of GOD whose blood atonement takes away sin!  And JESUS is Jewish!

There are billions of Christians who love JESUS, truth of the HOLY BIBLE, and Israel!  Sadly, some, who call themselves Christian, hate GOD's people and the Land of Israel.  They can fool themselves and others.  But GOD knows their hearts.

Three consecutive different cars picked you up hitchhiking who all turn out to be Christians! Ooh, buddy, Jesus had it in for you, are you lucky !

Come into the ark, in the ark you'll be saved – Jesus is our ark, the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.

Yes – The opposite of Jew is not Christian – The opposite of Jew is Gentile – For God so loved the world that He alao chose the Gentiles in Jesus the Messiah!!

Just believe with all your heart in the blood of Jesus and his finished work at cross. Just believe in the Gospel and not your works. Read 1Corint 15:1-4, Rom 3:25, 10:9-10 & Ephes 2:8-9. Read roman to filemon thats our books for today. You have to rightly divide the Bibel. Today only by faith in the Blood of Jesus. If you want great bibel study you search Robert Breaker and watch his video.

Just a point, I love your story, yes, Jesus is a Jew; we are the “Christ-ians”, the Christ Followers😊❤️ welcome home😊❤️

It's something that a man can pick up a playboy book and not be ashamed. But to pick up a Bible and be ashamed… So glad he got saved.

Make sure that your Christian journey begins with Peter, whom Jesus Himself called the rock and on which He built His Church, not with Luther and Calvin (the creators of Protestantism), who, because of their perversity, interrupted the continuity of Christ's Church. This continuity is maintained by the Roman – Catholic Church and the Eastern Christian Orthodox Churches. In addition, in the Protestant denominations the most important sacrament is missing – the Eucharist (bloodless sacrifice of the Lamb), which Jesus Himself instituted and commanded to follow. Study the doctrine of the Roman – Catholic and Protestant faith deeply and judge for yourself which is faithful and which is not faithful to Jesus Christ. Everything is given exactly in the New Testament. There is church authority in the Catholic faith and therefore the interpretation of the truths of faith is coherent and uniform. However, Protestant denominations, of which there are tens of thousands, lack this cohesion. Christ did not establish many but only one Church – The One that starts with Peter.

Awesome testimony God is in control wow what a setup God bless keep the faith keep standing on the unmovable Rock that is our Lord and savior Jesus Christ DIOS BENDIGA

I cant help but notice the HOSTILITY Jews have towards Christians and in this testimony it comes through when guy says, " Ya know Jesus wasn't a CHRISTIAN, Jesus was a JEW !" You can hear the derision in his voice, as if they're is something WRONG with being Christian. Let me tell you something, CHRISTIANS have believed in Jesus for 2000 years while you Jews were hating on him. WE'VE carried the torch for 2000 years , WE'VE believed in Jesus. We Christians! Now these Johnny-Come-Latelies find out Jesus was a Jew and act all hoighty toighty, uppity, arrogantand haughty. Let me tell you all something, Jesus may have been a Jew but the Pharisees who plotted to kill Jesus, THEY WERE JEWS TOO. So being a Jew dont mean SHIT ! It's your ACTIONS that matter. How do you TREAT people? THATS what matters. And much of Jewish leadership is STILL Hating on Jesus, STILL doing UN-ethical things to Christians and other non Jews WORKD WIDE ! And these Jews who claim to love Jesus need to CHASTISE their fellow Jews who commit these crimes or they are HYPOCRITES ! Jesus chastised and stood up AGAINST those fellow Jews who were criminals and Christians need to CONTINUE this TODAY, NOT fawning over Jews. !!!

It remains one of the most encouraging things for me to experience Jewish people converting to Christianity. Having grown up in a Christian home one sort of get to take one's faith for granted and not appreciating it sufficiently. Thanks to you guys the appreciation has been reawakened.

GOD not like when holly people not wear a good religious bard and wear a Nazi Hitler bard! GOD HATE this; becouse he hate Hitler and Nazis and they unclean teachings against GOD!

Its SAD that Jewish folks don't really understand that Christianity is the other half of their Jewish heritage. The Lord God Almighty kept all HIS promises to the Jewish people. The new testament was FOR THE JEWS as indicated by Jesus. Later after Jesus was crucified did Peter and Paul were told to share the gospel to the Gentiles. Its exciting to hear God's chosen finding the WAY home.

Thank you for sharing, and demonstrating with the joy on your face, this unique journey to JESUS.  Nothing in this Universe compares to finding GOD.
