“You diligently study the Scriptures because you think that by them you possess eternal life. These are the Scriptures that testify about me” – John 5:39
David Baron was born to a Russian Jewish family in Poland and received a good rabbinical education. Even as a child he sought the Lord God and thought deeply on spiritual matters. He was anxious about the many divine condemnations of all men’s inborn, inescapable sin.
He diligently studied the Old Testament and found many verses talking about God’s mercy. But it wasn’t until he immigrated to England that he met some Christians and he began to study the New Testament.
For over a year David studied, finding that observances, rituals, study of the Talmud, works, and ceremonies meant nothing in the sight of God. Only faith in Jesus Christ is acceptable to the Father, who then gives salvation as a free gift!
Contrary to the repeated teaching he had received as a child, David discovered that Jesus did not hate Jews, but loved them with deep compassion. The realization overcame him and he dropped to his knees, praying that God would give him that saving faith in Christ.
In his testimony, David said: “Though some years have now passed since that memorable evening, I can still sing the same song and am even more determined to ‘trust in Jesus, and not be afraid.'” David co-founded the Hebrew Christian Testimony to Israel missionary organization, in London, with the purpose of converting Jews to Hebrew Christianity.
The Bible is the testimony of Jesus Christ. Throughout its books, it declares that Jesus is Lord of all. Today in prayer, worship the Lord and give Him all of your life for His glory.
“The Bible is the portrait of Jesus Christ.” – John Stott
God’s Word: “He said to them, ‘This is what I told you while I was still with you: Everything must be fulfilled that is written about me in the Law of Moses, the Prophets, and the Psalms.’” – Luke 24:44
