22 November 1863 Baptism of Aaron Bernstein, author of “Some Jewish Witnesses for Christ” #otdimjh


On This Day In Messianic Jewish History

Non nobis, Domine, non nobis, sed nomini Tuo da honorem. (Not to us, not to us, O Lord, But to thy name give glory) says this modest man of God, who writes the great reference work of Jewish believers up to the end of the 19th century, and was a long serving missionary with CMJ in Jerusalem, Paris, Bucharest, Frankfurt and London.

I have not been able to find a photograph of him – if you have one please let me know – but from the style of his prose and the intelligence in his writing I sense a man who loved his Messiah, his people, and put all his thought and effort into serving them.

Prayer: Lord, my our lives also be transparent in our humble service. Forgive us our airs and graces, petty ambitions and pride, and help us to dedicate ourselves to your service. Thank you…
