Item description for Jesus the Messiah in the Hebrew Bible by Eugen J. Pentiuc...
Overview An analysis of the messianic texts found in the Hebrew Bible in the light of the ancient Jewish and Christian interpreters, with an emphasis on theological and pastoral significance of these texts.
Publishers Description JESUS THE MESSIAH IN THE HEBREW BIBLE deals with the messianic texts found in the Hebrew Bible. Shifting away from conventional paradigms, Eugen Pentiuc develops a new way of understanding the presence of Christ in the Old Testament. His approach is ontological, based on the view that Jesus the Messiah was pre-existent, and he appeared in manifold forms throughout the Hebrew Bible prior to his human incarnation in the New Testament. This book provides an accurate exegetical basis for reviewing the prophetic indicators--"as well as the literary explications--"of the relationship between the Old Testament prophecy and the New Testament fulfillment of Jesus the Messiah. Intended as primarily a pastoral work, based on theology and biblical exegesis, it contains' homelitic outlines and samples. Also included are the church Fathers' writings on the most important issues of hermeneutics. This book is a work of exegesis and biblical theology entwined with pastoral guidance. It will be a useful tool for both ministers and faithful in their quest of Christ in the Old Testament.

Reviews - What do customers think about Jesus the Messiah in the Hebrew Bible?
not for entertainment Dec 5, 2009
I think the other review was a little harsh. It is not an amazing read. Keep in mind that English is not the authors first language. It is actually his 4th language. He is an expert in Semitic languages from Romania. As you can guess from the title of his book, he believes that Jesus is the Messiah of the Old Testament. It is not an entertaining read. It is very educational. Don't get this book unless you have an education in Christianity. It is great for people who lead Bible studies and write sermons. It is not a book for lay persons. It is not for anyone looking for emotional, everything is love writing. The linguistics and history are solid. Expect to read this book in multiple sittings although it is not very long. You might want to keep your Bible handy so that you can refresh your memory. He assumes that you have a solid background in the Old Testament. The part that makes this book great is: "in the Hebrew Bible". He uses Hebrew text to show you proof of Jesus as Messiah. This book shows that Christians did not write our own version of the Bible to support our crazy ideas. It shows that Jesus is Messiah even according to modern Hebrew text (a Hebrew text that Christians did not write).
So far... Horrible Sep 24, 2009
Admittely I'm only part way into the book but it's horrible. It's so hard to pick it up to read because it's so bad. I don't get the feeling the author believes and I disapprove the method he uses to interpret scripture in this book. Also it is written in such a dry, highminded way that it's annoying to read.
