Italian Jewish in Italy


Italian Jewish in Italy

What event comes to mind when you hear the year 1492? Yes, most think of Columbus' landing in the New World. The date 1492 is also important because it is the year that Spain expelled most of its Jewish population. Some of these Jews who were forced to leave Spain ended up in the area we now call Italy.

Ministry Obstacles

Many Jews associate Christianity with the Holocaust, the murder of six million Jews by the Nazis in World War II. Some Jewish people believe that if they follow Christ they will be forsaking their family's faith and culture.

Outreach Ideas

Christians can build friendships with the Jews in Italy and tell them about their Messiah.

Scripture Focus

"Let not the foreigner who has joined himself to the LORD say, The LORD will surely separate me from his people; and let not the eunuch say, Behold, I am a dry tree."  Isaiah 56:3

Scripture Prayer

Pray that many from today’s people group will put all their hope in the Lord.

Prayer Focus

Pray that the few Italian Messianic Jews would find and encourage each other. Ask the Lord to open the spiritual hearts of the Italian Jews, so they might be receptive to hearing about the claims of Jesus Christ. Pray the Holy Spirit would lead many Jews to read the New Testament. Pray the Lord would move Christians in Italy to make redemptive friendships with their Jewish neighbors in order to share the love of Jesus with them. Pray for God to raise up multiplying disciples among the Italian Jews in this decade.
