Behold: see, look at – Oxford Desk Dictionary
Our expanded definition: to eat in, drink in, take in, taste, enjoy, look at, gaze upon, and consume everything that is Jesus! Behold The Lamb Ministries exists to encourage people to behold the Savior. Without a vibrant personal relationship with Him we are empty and fruitless. Continuing daily with Him we are able to focus on our objective.
Paul the apostle wrote to the Romans that “…all Israel will be saved” because “as it is written, The Deliverer will come out of Zion” (Romans 11: 26). Jewish people trust in their belief of the Old Testament; and that Jesus is for the Gentiles. They are not aware of details about their Messiah including when He would come, the signs to look for, that both comings are predicted, or that each of these subjects are found in their law and their prophets.
One day the Father will bring the children of Israel back to the land He gave to Abraham. Fifty-two Old Testament scriptures predict it – the first being Moses. He will bring them from every corner of the earth, including America! Did you know Hosea 11:10 says His sons will come trembling from the west? What an ominous prophecy. What would you do if a Jewish person asked for help when they were on route “trembling?” Would you help them? Of course you would!
While you were meeting their needs, would you be willing to give them the Gospel? Surely you would! However, here’s a secret. If you tell them about a New Testament Jesus who healed the sick, raised the dead, and cast out demons, they will not listen. Why not? Because “Jesus is for the Gentiles, not for the Jew. And we believe in the Old Testament, not in the New!”
But if you tell them about an Old Testament Messiah who is predicted to die, be buried, and be raised up on the third day… and tell them about it from their own feasts that they celebrate… how can they argue? It’s their side of the book!
Behold The Lamb Ministries focuses on equipping the church with the Gospel from the Old Covenant. Paul told the Corinthians, “For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures” (1Corinthians 15: 3-4).
What Scriptures was Paul talking about? He only had the Old Testament. When you explain it to a Jewish person they still may not agree with you. But they can’t stand in opposition to you with a biblically intellectual argument. Our greatest desire is to equip you with the understanding a Jewish person needs. It’s our job to tell them; it’s the Holy Spirit’s job to draw them to Himself!
