• More than three-quarters of our Christian Scriptures are the Scriptures of Israel, the Hebrew Bible and the Greek translations of the Hebrew Bible.
  • The God Christians worship is the God of Israel.
  • Our savior, Jesus, is the Messiah long expected by Jewish prophets.
  • All the apostles, on whom we rely for transmission of our faith, were Jewish.
  • Until the second century, the church was essentially a Jewish sect.

It’s ok to think of yourself as Jewish if you are a Christian.
