    Our Messiah (John 1:41), and Lord, Jesus Christ (2 Thessalonians 1:12),
    was born, raised, lived His earthly life, and rose as a Jew:

    Genesis 49:10
    Luke 1:32, 2:22-40
    John 1:11, 4:9, 18:35
    Acts 2:30
    Romans 1:3
    2 Timothy 2:8.

    He had a Jewish mother:

    "Mary’s genealogy is supplied in Luke 3:23-38. Dr. Henry Morris explains how we know this genealogy is Mary’s:

    Joseph was clearly the son of Jacob (Matthew 1:16, so this verse [Luke 3:23—says “son of Heli”] should be understood to mean “son-in-law of Heli.” Thus, the genealogy of Christ in Luke is actually the genealogy of Mary, while Matthew gives that of Joseph."
    https://christiananswers.net/dictionary/mary-motherofjesus.html#genealogy

    He was born King of the Jews (Luke 2:2).
    He died King of the Jews (John 19:19).
    He died for all people (John 3:15-17).
    We are one in him (Galatians 3:28).
    He is still Jewish and will remain so for ever (Revelation 5:5).

    Based on these scriptures,:

    And I will make of thee a great nation,
    and I will bless thee,
    and make thy name great;
    and thou shalt be a blessing:
    And I will bless them that bless thee,
    and curse him that curseth thee:
    and in thee shall all the families on earth be blessed.
    Genesis 12:2-3

    It hath pleased them verily;
    and their debtors they are.
    For if the Gentiles have been made
    partakers of their spiritual things,
    their duty is also to minister unto them in carnal things.
    Romans 15:27

    you can show the thousands of people who read the Baptist Board
    along with You Know Who by making a simple declaration;
    and by doing so await your blessing.

    Like this one: God bless Jews and Israel.

    Apparently, in the last thread with a very similar title, many forum members were unclear as to why the above request is on the Board.

    Don't you want the blessing God offers in Genesis 12:3?

    Specifically, "And I will bless them that bless thee"

    You might ask if the "thee" is Abraham, the physical nation of Israel, or the Israelites who believe(d) in God.
    It doesn't really matter to me although I see some prejudice against Jews on this board mainly by people who either don't think that Jesus is Jewish now or that He never really was Jewish.

    When we see Him in the future you can argue about it with Him.

    Look at this scripture and then say He is not forever Jewish:

    And one of the elders saith unto me,
    Weep not: behold,
    the Lion of the tribe of Judah,
    the Root of David,
    hath prevailed to open the book,
    and to loose the seven seals thereof.
    Revelation 5:5

    Blessed be the Lord thy God,
    which delighted in thee,
    to set thee on the throne of Israel:

    because the Lord loved Israel for ever,

    therefore he made thee king,
    to do judgement and justice.
    1 Kings 10:9

    Praise to God that He loves Israel for ever.

    Now I say that Jesus Christ
    was a minister of the circumcision
    for the truth of God,
    to confirm the promises
    made unto the fathers:
    Romans 15:8

    Praise to God that Jesus was a minister to the Jews.

    Only the Lord
    had a delight in thy fathers
    to love them,
    and he chose their seed after them,
    even you above all people,
    as it is this day.
    Deuteronomy 10:15

    Praise the God who loves Israel.

    (Regarding Israel/Jacob)

    ...as touching the election,
    they are beloved for the fathers' sake.
    Romans 11:28b

    Praise to God that He loves Israel.

    If therefore perfection were by the Levitical priesthood,
    (for under it the people received the law,)
    what further need was there
    that another priest should rise
    after the order of Melchisedec,
    and not be called after the order of Aaron?
    Hebrews 7:11

    For it is evident
    that our Lord
    sprang out of Judah;
    of which tribe
    Moses spake nothing concerning the priesthood.
    But this man,
    because he continueth ever,
    hath an unchangeable priesthood.
    Wherefore he is able
    also
    to save them to the uttermost
    that come unto God by him,
    seeing he ever liveth
    to make intercession for them.
    Hebrews 7:14,:24-25

    Praise God that our Jewish Savior is eternal, saves to the uttermost, and lives as a priest making intercession for us.

    Even us,
    whom he hath called,
    not of the Jews only,
    but also of the Gentiles
    Romans 9:24

    Praise to God that He calls.

    And had a wall great and high,
    and had twelve gates,
    and at the gates twelve angels,
    and names written thereon,
    which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel:
    And the wall of the city had twelve foundations,
    and in them
    the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.
    Revelation 21:12,14

    Praise to God that we will live our future lives in a city with Jewish names on the gates and foundations.

    I Jesus have sent mine angel
    to testify unto you
    these things in the churches.
    I am the root and the offspring of David,
    and the bright and morning star.
    Revelation 22:16

    From the last chapter of the last book in the bible, Jesus identifies Himself as Jewish.
    Praise be to God.

    He hath made his wonderful works
    to be remembered:
    the Lord is gracious and full of compassion.
    Psalm 111:4

    Can you remember any of His wonderful works, like listing a few in your mind?

    Your praise be to God.

    I will also gather all nations,
    and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat,
    and will plead with them there
    for my people and for my heritage Israel,
    who they have scattered among the nations and parted my land.
    Joel 3:2

    Praise to God who still cares for Israel.

    For of a truth
    against thy holy child Jesus,
    whom thou hast anointed,
    both Herod,
    and Pontius Pilate,
    with the Gentiles,
    and the people of Israel,
    were gathered together,
    For to do whatsoever
    thy hand and thy counsel determined before to be done.
    Acts 4:27-28

    Please do not lay the death of Christ at the feet of the Jews.
    We are all responsible.

    Praise to God that Christ died for the ungodly.
    Romans 5:6

    But unto them which are called,
    both Jews and Greeks,
    Christ the power of God,
    and the wisdom of God.

    Therefore it is of faith,
    that it might be by grace;
    to the end the promise might be sure
    to all the seed;
    not to that only which is of the law,
    but to that also which is of the faith of Abraham;
    who is the father of us all.
    Romans 4:16

    Praise to the God of believing Jews and believing Gentiles who have the same father.

    Ye also,
    as lively stones,
    are built up a spiritual house,
    an holy priesthood,
    to offer up spiritual sacrifices,
    acceptable to God
    by Jesus Christ.
    Wherefore also it is contained
    in the scripture,
    Behold,
    I lay in Sion a chief corner stone,
    elect,
    precious:
    and he that believeth on him
    shall not be confounded.
    1 Peter 2:5-6

    Praise to God that we are priests in Sion.

    And if some of the branches be broken off,
    and thou,
    being a wild olive tree,
    wert grafted in among them,
    and with them partakest of the root and fatness of the olive tree;
    Romans11:17

    Praise God Jewish and Gentile believers partake of the root.
