That Jew Died For You

Isaiah 53:4-6

Surely he took up our pain
    and bore our suffering,
yet we considered him punished by God,
    stricken by him, and afflicted.
But he was pierced for our transgressions,
    he was crushed for our iniquities;
the punishment that brought us peace was on him,
    and by his wounds we are healed.
We all, like sheep, have gone astray,
    each of us has turned to our own way;
and the Lord has laid on him
    the iniquity of us all.

My sister sent this link to me today.  It hit me like a hammer.  I felt led to share it with you all.  Please reblog to get the word out if you too feel led.

For over 60 years one question has gnawed at the consciousness of Jews everywhere:“Where was God when the 6 million died?”

Adding to this terrible tragedy is the fact that Satan has used the Holocaust to keep Jews from being open to the Gospel. We want to see God make the worst effort of Satan to destroy the Jewish people into an opportunity to glorify Himself and bring many Jewish sons and daughters to glory.

To this end, Jew for Jesus is launching a worldwide evangelistic campaign featuring a short video, “That Jew Died for You,” to coincide with Passover, Holy Week and Holocaust Remembrance Day (4/28).

We expect that the stark impact of the video, which portrays Jesus carrying his cross into Auschwitz, will help redefine the conversation and reshape views of Christ and his relationship to the Holocaust, presenting a positive image of hope and saving faith instead of despair.

Please consider donating to support this effort.The budget for making the video, creating the plan of evangelism and support materials is $250,000 – but the eventual distribution and the number of people who will see it is dependent on how much support comes in beyond that amount. 

This important and innovative evangelism effort is only made possible by your help.  Please help us to maximize this outreach by sending your gift now.  Together with God’s help we can turn the greatest tragedy of modern history into an emblem of God’s triumph over Satan and Death.

Yours for the salvation of Israel,
David Brickner

PS: We do expect significant opposition to this effort so please pray and give as the Lord directs.  Thank you!
