Jewish rabbis have contended for centuries that Jesus Christ's claim to be the Messiah, the Son of God, was inconsistent with Old Testament prophecies about the nature of this anticipated individual.
Using the same Old Testament, the author rebuts each and every objection to Jesus' claim to be the Messiah. Indeed, had He NOT claimed to be the Son of God, in the flesh, He wouldn't have qualified! More
We've all read the simple extrapolations of old Testament prophecies to the life of Jesus that Christian writers present as evidence. The most difficult objections to Jesus as the Messiah, however, have always come from the Jews . . . using the same Old Testament source as the basis of their objections!
Who's right? Does the Old Testament support, or deny, Jesus' claim to be the Messiah?
This book resulted from a rather intense year-long debate between the author and a very knowledgeable old friend that shook my beliefs! My dilemma forced me to spend many days in Princeton University's Speer Theological Library researching the past 150 years of Jewish Rabbis' objections to Jesus as the Messiah. Although their positions seem logical and are well thought out, in the end the weight of scripture led me not to take sides with the Rabbis, but rather to stand against them by confirming that Jesus Christ is indeed the Messiah, as He said He was----and not just Messiah of the Jews, but of all men everywhere!
These pages contain the clear and convincing evidence, as well as the logic behind it, that resulted from that rather intense debate.
