Sharing Jesus with the Jews

Sharing the Gospel with the Jewish people is simply “bringing the message to the original messengers”, according to Jahleel Shelling, a Jewish believer and pastor who will be speaking in Toowoomba this month.

Jahleel serves on the pastoral team of Beit Hamashiac in Melbourne - a vibrant community of Jews and Gentiles who worship Jesus through a Jewish expression.

“We’ve seen many Jewish people encounter Jesus through our Passovers or even simply walking into our services,” Jahleel said.

He shared the recent testimony of a young man from an Orthodox background who began weeping in a service where the preacher was sharing on the circumcision of the heart.

“Even though he had heard that portion read many times by Rabbis, he had never heard it explained in a way that he could understand God’s truth,” Jahleel said.

Jahleel said the young man has faced persecution from his family, but continues to stand strong in his faith.

After finishing high school, God led Jahleel to serve in Israel with an evangelistic outreach ministry called Trumpet of Salvation.

“It was during my time in Israel that I really learnt how to share Jesus with the Jewish people,” Jahleel said.

Together with his wife, Rebekah, he continues to outreach among the Jewish community in Melbourne as well as regularly visiting Israel and connecting with the Messianic community world-wide.

He also organises outreach events for Celebrate Messiah, a mission agency focussed on bringing the Gospel message to the Jewish people.

Jahleel will be sharing at the The Range Christian Fellowship and Rangeville Community Church on Sunday, October 19.

Jahleel said he hoped his messages would help Christians to grasp the Jewishness of the scriptures as well as recognising God’s heart for the Jewish people.

“It’s all about loving Jesus, our Messiah more,” Jahleel said.

“And if we can help people learn more about their Messiah – whether it’s walking through Jerusalem’s dusty streets or the hills of Galilee, that is our heart.”

Jahleel will be speaking at The Range Christian Fellowship’s morning service (9:15am) and also Rangeville Community Church’s night service at (6pm).
