Q. I have a dear friend who is an Orthodox Jew. My attempts to witness just bounce off those inch-thick scales on his stubborn eyes. He’s quite intellectual and a big reader, so I’d like to find a good, thought-provoking book on Jesus/the gospel to send him. Anything come to mind?
A. More Jewish people have come to faith in Jesus as the Messiah because of a study of Isaiah 53 than any other source. Be sure you are well versed in the chapter first and then show him how it points to the Lord’s death for the sins of the people and subsequent resurrection.
Be sure to use a legitimate translation from the Hebrew and not one of the paraphrases that are so popular today.
