Why is it necessary to go to the Jewish people?
- "And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved." (Acts 4:12)
- Jesus speaking to the Jewish leadership in Jerusalem said, "For I tell YOU, YOU will not see me again until you say, 'Blessed is He Who comes in the Name of the Lord." (Matthew 23:39)
- "For if their rejection means the reconciliation of the world, what will their acceptance mean but life from the dead?" (Romans 11:15)
