If you are a Christian, you have most likely heard the phrase, “Christianity is about relationship not religion.” In fact, many Christians actually view religion as a not-so-good thing, and for good reason. It’s apparent in the Bible, that Jesus didn’t like religion either, because that’s what kept some of the Jews from accepting him as their Messiah.
When Jesus addressed the Pharisees and the teachers of the Law, who happened to be some of the most prominent religious leaders of the time, he said to them that even though they worship God, their hearts are far from Him. (Matthew 15:7-9)
Even today, religion and tradition keeps the Jewish people from learning the truth about Jesus. Many have been led to believe that the Bible is divided into two entirely different books. They refer to the Old Testament as their Bible and the New Testament as the one that belongs to the Gentiles. Some of them were even taught by their parents and grandparents that the New Testament was a book about how to persecute the Jews.
Thankfully, there are some Jewish people who decide they no longer want to practice religion instead, they want to know the truth about God, the entire Bible, and who Jesus really is.
This is exactly what happened to the Jewish man in this video produced by the ministry called ONE FOR ISRAEL. He was absolutely shocked to find out the truth about Jesus. After the realization, he was astonished that what happened to Jesus in the New Testament was prophesied in Isaiah 53, a chapter in the Old Testament. Part of it says, “But He was wounded for our transgressions, He wasbruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripes we are healed.” Isaiah 53:5
