Forget making it a priority, why doesn't the Church invest in reaching Jewish people at all? The logic is that Jews only make up a small percentage of the world's population - 14 million Jews to a 7 billion world population. Why invest there? Don't we want the biggest "Bang for the Buck"?
Smart Church leaders will recognize that this one small people group holds the key to world revival. We may disagree on what revival is, but all agree that it's bringing life to things dead. Paul says, "What will their acceptance be but life from the dead". Smart investors understand that the greatest return is secreted in this one people group (Romans 11:12, 15).
Have you considered that there's a relationship between tithing and Jewish evangelism? We give God the first fruits of our income and He blesses and stretches the other 90%. In a similiar way, it's a biblical pattern that if we give the first fruits of our evangelistic efforts in reaching the Jewish people with their own Messiah, God will bless and stretch the other 90% of our evangelistic efforts.
