“I say then, they did not stumble so as to fall, did they?
May it never be! But by their transgression salvation has
come to the Gentiles, to make them jealous.”
The Lord calls upon Gentile believers to reach out to their
Jewish friends and neighbors making them want the Jewish
Messiah who lives in their hearts!
It is through your prayers, generosity, and loving witness
to your Jewish friends and family, making them jealous, that
the plan of God will go forward in power!
Partners in the Gospel: The
Understanding of J. Hudson Taylor
There is a wonderful story about the relationship between
John Wilkinson, a Gentile missionary who founded the
Mildmay Mission to the Jews, and J. Hudson Taylor, founder
of the China Inland Mission (now OMF). Every January,
Taylor would send Wilkinson a check for a sum of money
with a note attached, “To the Jew first.” Wilkinson would then
send the same amount back to Taylor with a note that read
“And also to the Gentiles.”
We must prioritize reaching Jewish people because of
God’s choice of Abraham’s seed according to the flesh and also

to His ascension. We cannot allow Jewish evangelism
to become the great omission of the Great
Commission. This is beginning to change
as some church bodies are taking Jewish
evangelism more seriously. It is my hope that
this will continue, but it begins with you and me.
This is why we are calling upon ourselves
and the greater Body of Christ to embrace
the biblical pattern of bringing the gospel
to the Jewish people. It is the key to world
On pages four and five, I have given you
a brief overview of the strategic initiatives
for Jewish evangelism that make up our
To the Jew First Campaign. I will describe
these opportunities in greater detail in our
newsletters in the months ahead.
During the next twelve months, we hope to
raise more than 3.4 million dollars to continue
focusing on three special areas of ministry. Now
let me tell you our plans for reaching Jewish
people in the 21st century!
How YOU CAN MAKE the
To The Jew First
It is our desire to fund the three strategic initiatives of To the Jew First by
the end of 2020. This will enable Chosen People Ministries to continue to
support ministries that will impact the lives of thousands Jewish people
around the world!
Genesis 12:3 provides a wonderful incentive to support this campaign
that will bless the Jewish people:
“And I will bless those who bless you, and the one who curses you
I will curse. And in you all the families of the earth will be blessed.”
Although it is not the sole reason to give, it does reveal God’s heart. May
you be blessed through your partnership with Chosen People Ministries.

Jew First Campaign and respond today.
