Why? Because Jesus said: “I am the way, the truth, and the life. NO ONE can come to the Father except through Me.” John 14:6 NLT

The “No One” Jesus refers to includes Jews and Gentiles. In other words, Jews, like everybody else are only being saved when they believe in Jesus Christ as their true Messiah! (There are many Jews who have accepted Yeshua, the Hebrew word for Jesus, as their Lord and Savior; they are called Messianic Jews.)

While individual Jews must come to Christ for salvation, God is still not finished with the people of Israel. The Bible says the following about this:

“Some of the people of Israel have hard hearts, but this will last only until the full number of Gentiles comes to Christ.  And so all Israel will be saved. As the Scriptures say, the one who rescues will come from Jerusalem, and He will turn Israel away from ungodliness.  And this is my covenant with them, that I will take away their sins.”

Many of the people of Israel are now enemies of the Good News, and this benefits you Gentiles. Yet they are still the people he loves because he chose their ancestors Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. For God’s gifts and his call can never be withdrawn.” Romans 11:25-29 NLT
