This is that good! Good teachers take complex ideas and share them in a way that others can understand what is being taught. Joseph Farah is a good teacher and this book is worth buying and reading. Karl I. You might not agree with every insight offered I found myself passing on a few of the offerings , but you will be enriched and enlightened on page after page of this engagingly written and edifying book.
You will see Jesus-Yeshua as you have not seen Him before! Michael L. There is no better place to look than the Holy Scriptures. Joseph Farah brings his incredible skill as an investigative reporter with a keen mind into the task of looking for Jesus in the Old Testament. Although I have been a Christian for over sixty years and have been well taught and am well-read, I was fascinated to discover new insights about Jesus as Farah explores the books of the Old Testament.
If you want to see Jesus more clearly — read this book.
As a Messianic Jew, I found it fascinating, engaging and enriching reading. I heartily recommend this latest literary offering from Joseph Farah. Congratulations Joseph! The gospel in every book of the Old Testament. The subject of this publication cannot but cause our hearts to burn within us, as it did when Jesus opened up the Old Testament for His disciples, on the Emmaus road.
This book brings out and clarifies the 'gospel' message that Yeshua [Jesus] said must necessarily be preached as a witness to all nations just before He returns. Get a copy to read for yourself and get some extra copies to share with others. For this is our great end of age commission. The first 39 books of the Bible are a read ahead for the coming of Jesus and the salvation that came with Him. Bishop Fulton Sheen once said that in terms of the prophecies of the Old Testament and the realities of the New Testament, it is a mathematical impossibility that Jesus was not the Messiah.
The magic of this book is that those viewing the same passages in the past, on multiple occasions, will find new and inspiring messages in those same passages. The Bible surely plays a key role in our salvation, it educates and inspires, but it has been virtually banned from the public square. I hope this book will help bring it back by uniting both books into one gospel and one message for salvation for all.
Jesus is a very Jewish concept. Christianity is Jewish. And this theme is in all 66 books of the Bible, not just the New Testament. You realize the importance of walking those ancient paths where the Good Way has always been there but only hidden.
“And So Were the Churches Established in the Faith”
The Bible declares that it is the 'glory of kings' to uncover a matter. This book does a fantastic job of mining out many precious Gospel gems hidden throughout the Hebrew Scriptures by their divine author. Hippolytus reported that Marcion's phantasmal and Docetist Christ was "revealed as a man, though not a man", and did not really die on the cross. Those medieval Muslim writers who specialized in the study of foreign religions often presented Marcionite theology accurately. There were early Christian groups, such as the Ebionites, that did not accept Paul's writings as a part of their canon.
Robert M. Price considers the Pauline canon problem of how, when, and who collected Paul's epistles and sent copies of them to the various churches as a single collection of epistles. He summarizes,. Trobisch further argues for Paul as the assembler of his own letters for publication. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

We also teach that separation from any association with religious apostasy, and worldly and sinful practices is commanded of us by God Rom.

We teach the importance of discipleship Matt. We teach the autonomy of the local church, free from any external authority or control, with the right of self-government and freedom from the interference of any hierarchy of individuals or organizations Titus We teach that it is scriptural for true churches to cooperate with each other for the presentation and propagation of the faith.
