Most Jewish people don’t believe in Yeshua, Jesus because they’re taught it’s not Jewish to believe in a Messiah who dies for sins. But in recent years, a text in one of the Dead Sea scrolls, kept hidden from the public, came to light. It’s called text “4Q285”. It says of the Messiah, “They will kill the prince of the people.” In other words, it’s Jewish to believe in a Messiah who was killed. The Dead Sea scroll continues, “They will kill the prince of the people with hallal”. Hallal is the same word found in Isaiah 53 where it is written, “He was pierced through for our transgressions.” The word pierced through is hallal. The scroll, hidden in the Judean desert for 2000 years and then from the public for another 40 years, declared that Messiah would be killed in the same manner as the Suffering Servant of Isaiah 53 – through piercings. Even the Dead Sea Scrolls bear witness to this fact: the Messiah actually did give His life for you, and there is only one way to respond to this fact – live your life for His glory.
