Joseph Friedrich Sobernheim 1803-1846
Sobernheim came to faith through the witness of a Jewish pawnbroker. This man had read a New Testament pawned to him for a small sum by a student. On having come to faith, he paid the student a hundred louis d’or as a token of gratitude for having been the means by which he had met his Messiah!
The pawnbroker witnessed to his fellow Jews, some of whom he had the joy of seeing come to faith. Among these were Dr. Sobernheim and his father.
Sobernheim was esteemed as an author of medical works.
