At my job I met a girl that was Jewish. I asked her about her faith and she seemed to focus on the fact that she was born of a Jewish heritage and went to Synagogue every week. I asked if I could look at her Bible. She brought it in the next day and I quickly noticed this was the Old Testament of my Bible. Over the next few days I was able to reference all the locations to where God was promising the Savior (in her Bible) and found the fulfillment in the New Testament (in my Bible). Later that week we had a break and I had her read passages in her Bible that I had marked and then I read the fulfillment of each passage she read. When we were done she looked at me and cried. She said she had no idea and that she could do nothing or her father would kill her. This was the last we talked about it.
