The word ‘convert‘ in modern vernacular means to leave one’s religion for another. So when Jewish people hear you speak of converting from Judaism to Christianity, they hear you asking them to betray their heritage, religion and people. However the New Covenant writers and evangelists NEVER asked Jewish people to convert to a new religion, but to believe in the Messiah.
