Our Salvation Came from the Jews

“Salvation comes through the Jews.” – John 4:22 

Today’s key verse is a profound statement uttered by Jesus Himself: “Salvation comes through the Jews.” In these simple words, He encapsulates the foundational truth of our faith—that our redemption, our hope, our very salvation originated from the Jewish people. 

Long before Jesus walked the earth, the Prophet Isaiah foretold of a future where Israel would flourish, becoming a source of blessing for the entire world. This vision of Israel as a conduit of divine grace finds its fulfillment in Jesus, the Jewish Messiah whose life, death, and resurrection ushered in salvation for all humanity. 

As Christians, it’s essential to recognize and honor our indebtedness to the Jewish people. Our Bible, the sacred text that guides our faith and shapes our beliefs, is a product of Jewish history and tradition. Every page, every verse, bears the imprint of Jewish authors, prophets, and sages who preserved and transmitted God’s Word through the ages. 

Our Savior, Jesus Christ, was born into a Jewish family, raised in Jewish culture, and ministered primarily to the Jewish people. His teachings, His miracles, and His sacrificial death on the cross—all rooted in His Jewish identity—constitute the cornerstone of our faith. 

But perhaps most significantly, our salvation itself was made possible through the obedience and faithfulness of the Jewish people. Without them, without their willingness to bear the burden of God’s covenant, we would have no hope, no reconciliation with our Creator. 

So why should you stand with Israel? Because in doing so, you acknowledge and honor the profound role they’ve played in our spiritual heritage. Because without them, our faith would be incomplete, our salvation unattainable. 

As you reflect on the significance of our salvation coming through the Jews, consider the impact it has on your own life. Let it deepen your gratitude, strengthen your connection to God’s chosen people, and inspire you to stand alongside them in solidarity and support. 

Our salvation, our hope, and our very identity as Christians are intricately tied to the Jewish people. Let’s honor and stand with Israel, recognizing the pivotal role they’ve played in bringing us into a relationship with God.
