Joseph Wolff, a Jewish Christian missionary, was born at Weilersbach, near Bamberg, Germany. He travelled and was known as “the missionary to the world”, he published several journals of his expeditions Travels and Adventures of Joseph Wolff. Wolff was born to his wife, his father became a rabbi in Weilersbach by 1790. He served in Kissingen, Halle upon Saale und Uehlfeld, in Jebenhausen, Württemberg between 1804 and 1807, he sent his son to the Lutheran lyceum at Stuttgart. Wolff was converted to Christianity through reading the books of Johann Michael von Sailer, bishop of Regensburg, he was baptized in 1812 near Prague. In his writings, Wolff told about his early conviction that Jesus is the Messiah: When only seven years old, he was boasting to an aged Christian neighbour of the future triumph of Israel at the advent of the Messiah, when the old man said kindly, “Dear boy, I will tell you who the real Messiah was: he was Jesus of Nazareth, whom your ancestors crucified, as they slew the prophets of old.
Go home and read the fifty-third chapter of Isaiah, you will be convinced that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.” Conviction at once fastened upon him. He went home and read the scripture, wondering to see how it had been fulfilled in Jesus of Nazareth. Were the words of the Christian true? The boy asked of his father an explanation of the prophecy, but was met with a silence so stern that he never again dared to refer to the subject; this however only increased his desire to know more of the Christian religion. Wolff pursued his studies at Tübingen and at Rome, he was expelled from the Collegio di Propaganda in 1818 for attacking the doctrine of infallibility and criticizing his tutors. After a short stay in the monastery of the Redemptorists at Val Sainte near Fribourg, Switzerland, he went to London. There he entered the Anglican Church, resumed his Oriental and theological studies at Cambridge. In 1821 Wolff began his mission's work in the East by visiting Egypt, the Sinai Peninsula, Aleppo, Persia and the Crimea.
He returned to England in 1826. In 1828 he set out to search for the Lost Tribes of Israel, traveling through Anatolia, Armenia and Afghanistan to Simla and Calcutta.

In 1836 he found Samuel Gobat in Ethiopia, took him to Jeddah, visited Yemen and Bombay, he continued to the United States, where he was ordained deacon on 26 September 1837 at Newark, New Jersey. Trinity College Dublin awarded him an honorary Doctorate of Laws. Wolff was ordained as a priest in 1838 by Bishop of Down and Connor. In the same year he was given the rectory of Linthwaite in Yorkshire. In his travels in Bukhara, he found the doctrine of the Lord's soon coming held by a remote and isolated people; the Arabs of Yemen, he says, "are in possession of a book called'Seera,' which gives notice of the coming of Christ and His reign in glory, they expect great events to take place in the year 1840."
"In Yemen I spent six days with the Rechabites. They drink no wine, plant no vineyards, sow no seed, live in tents, remember the words of Jonadab, the son of Rechab. With them were the children of Israel of the tribe of Dan... who expect, in common with the children of Rechab, the speedy arrival of the Messiah in the clouds of heaven."In 1843 Wolff went to Bukhara to seek two British officers, Lieutenant Colonel Charles Stoddart and Captain Arthur Conolly, captured by the Emir, Nasrullah Khan in June 1842. He learned that they had been executed, he was spared death himself only because the Emir laughed uncontrollably at Wolff's appearance in full canonical garb, his Narrative of this mission sold well and was printed in seven editions between 1845 and 1852. By Fitzroy Maclean a junior diplomat travelling incognito, retraced Wolff's trip in 1938, he wrote of Wolff in Eastern Approaches. Fifty years Maclean contributed a foreword to a biography of the missionary, he met his first wife in 1826 through Edward Irving, who introduced him to Lady Georgiana Mary Walpole, a descendant of Robert Walpole, the first Prime Minister of Great Britain.
In 1845 he was presented to the vicarage of Isle Somerset. After the death of his first wife on 16 January 1859, in May 1861 he married Louisa Decima, daughter of James King, rector of St. Peter-le-Poer, London, he was planning another great missions tour when he died at Isle Brewers on 2 May 1862. A patron when he was a young man was the eccentric politician, Henry Drummond, a member of the Catholic Apostolic Church. Wolff named his son Henry Drummond-Wolff.
