“Then he added, “Every teacher of religious law who becomes a disciple in the Kingdom of Heaven is like a homeowner who brings from his storeroom new gems of truth as well as old.””Matthew 13:52 NLT
Many Christians fail to grasp how the Old Testament points to Christ. Rabbi Jason Sobel, author of “Mysteries of the Messiah: Unveiling Divine Connections from Genesis to Today,” invites believers to claim the other half of our spiritual inheritance.
God’s Word, written by many people over thousands of years, is not a random selection of people and stories, but they have intricate connections. Rabbi Jason connects the dots for readers, helping them see with clarity what God intended.
Highlighting connections that have been hidden from non-Jewish eyes, Rabbi Jason Sobel pulls back the curtain to shed God’s light on the holy scriptures.
Most people do not understand how the Bible fits together—even people of faith. Too many Christians accept half an inheritance in that they are content to embrace merely the New Testament. On the flip side, Jews often experience this by embracing only the Old Testament. But God has an intricate plan and purpose for both.
In Mysteries of the Messiah, Rabbi Jason Sobel, raised in a Jewish home in New Jersey but now a follower of Yeshua, pulls back the curtain to show the many connections in Scripture hidden in plain sight. Known for his emphatic declaration “but there’s more!” he guides readers from the story of creation through Revelation to see the passion and purpose of the Messiah, the Torah, and several of the patriarchs and prophets.
My favorite way to read the bible is finding scripture in the Old Testament that points to Christ. Every word in the bible has a purpose, and is connected. It’s one of my favorite ways to dive into and study the bible. This is why I was thrilled to read this book! It seems the more that I dive into and examine the scriptures, the more I understand God and his love for us.
I put a few pages of the book down below.
