"I want what my brother has."

Dave was visiting with several inmates one evening; Tom approached Dave and asked for a Bible. The group began to discuss why there is both a New and Old Testament in the Bible. Soon the conversation got focused on Jesus: who He was, why He came, what He did for us.

Although his mother was a nominal believer and his brother a “born-again Christian,” his father was Jewish and Tom basically grew up in a Jewish home. Tom went on to say that his brother often would talk about the Lord Jesus. The discussion came back to Jesus being the “Son of God,” and Tom said that he knew deep in his heart that this was true and wanted what his brother had. Tom responded to the gospel and accepted Jesus as his Savior and Lord.

Pray that Tom will get grounded in the Word, and be an effective witness to the Jewish community.
