Jewish Roots Theology Book Oct 15, 2008
Awesome book to discover the Jewish roots of the Christian faith. Impressive material and content, I recommended to theologians that want to go deeper into the Jewish theology.
Author's Comments Nov 20, 2007
"Jewish Roots" has been through three editions and multiple printings since it was first published in 1986. This was one of two books that were the first serious theological books of Messianic Jewish Biblical Theology. David Stern published the other. Understanding the Bible from a Jewish context is the pervasive orientation of the book. Instead of filtering the Bible through a wrong interpretation of Galatians, and the New Testament, we first establish the contextual meaning of the Hebrew text. This provides the key to the right interpetation of the New Testament. The New Testament can not contradict the revelation already given. Were it to do so, Jews would be duty bound to reject it. Yet many Christians do not realize that their interpretations do contradict the revelation of the Hebrew Bible. Since the time of pubslishing "Roots" biblical scholarship has progressed and there is much more confirmation of the theology of this book. You will see parallel theologies which greatly agree in such authors as R. Kendall Soulen, Mark Kinser, Mark Nanos, Peter Tomson and Markus Buchmuel.
Messianic Jew Mar 14, 2006
Dan Juster is a Messianic Jew - a Jew who believes in and follows Messiah Jesus. He tells it like it is, with truth, wisdom and insight.
God Has Not Finished With Israel. Aug 5, 2003
This excellent book should be required reading in all Theological Seminaries, Bible Colleges/Schools and is a book which should also be read by all Ministers of the Gospel.
The author, himself a senior Pastor, has personally attended five Bible Colleges, obtained four degrees and engaged in three decades of study, providing an enormous wealth of understanding of this crucial subject. This book presents the results of an absorbing research into the heritage given to us by the Jewish people which is so vital for our own Christian faith and which underlies our own Salvation. ("..Salvation is of the Jews"; John 4;22.)
This book is quite detailed and is not to be taken lightly. The seriousness, gravity and implications of this work are likewise so important that they cannot be ignored.
Due to hostility and criticism I have recently been required to restrict my reviews to virtually the "bare bones" in relation to expressions supportive of Israel & the Jews or in criticism of Islam in relation to the Middle East conflict. Such have prevented me from portraying all that I wish to say & what I have felt needed to be said. I therefore will not go into detail about the message delivered here, as I do not wish to cast the precious pearls of this commendable work under the feet of those hostile to this subject.
As a reader, if you are interested in the Truth then you will readily access these essential facts fundamental to our faith. If not, then perhaps you will already have chosen your own path. I can only exhort both Jew and Gentile alike to examine this presentation of our history in relation to Holy Scripture.
In addition to this splendid work I would respectfully recommend Arnold Fruchtenbaum's book entitled "Jesus Was (is) A Jew" (bracketed emphasis is mine).
