I am looking for answers. I have discovered my last name is considered a Jewish name. Glasser. I was raised Lutheran,as are all of my family. Is it possible to become Jewish even though I believe in Jesus and the New Testament

    Jeremy, welcome to Mi Yodeya! Please see judaism.stackexchange.com/questions/52891/am-i-jewish regarding the general question of how one might determine if one is Jewish. If you suspect that you might be Jewish and want a professional ruling or advice on whether you are, I recommend that you consult a rabbi. We offer potentially-helpful information but can't make that determination for you.

    It should be noted that Jewish status and Jewish practice are not the same. One could have the Jewish status (if his mother were Jewish or underwent a conversion; see the linked questions in the other comments) even if (s)he does not practice Judaism. Best of luck finding answers.

    Regarding "Is it possible to become Jewish?" see Is it possible for a Gentile to convert to Judaism?. Again, if you're interested in advice on whether you personally can or should become Jewish, I recommend consulting a rabbi.
