Reviews - What do customers think about Answering Jewish Objections to Jesus: Messianic Prophecy Objections?
WOW , WOW, WOW, WOW, WOW ! Nov 14, 2006
This is a great book for gentiles because it is such encouragement to our faith in Jesus who is the Messiah, the Prophet and the Priest in the order of Melchizedek. Thank you Michael Brown ! On the other hand, it is truly an encouragement and a great introduction to the Jewish people who are truly looking for their Messiah. Michael gently removes the veil of bias that has trapped Messiah's people for 1,000 years in darkness. For a time such as this, God gave his chosen people a man like Michael Brown, himself a Jew, to come against years of arguments and to let the light shine in and reveal the Glory of God.
To be used as reference book only Feb 4, 2005
Brown knows an astounding amount of information about rabbinic writings, the torah and ancient bible translations. The book is a gold mine of responses to common Jewish objections to Jesus. The bad news is that you need to have the whole collection to see the responses to some questions (or else it will say, "see book 4, #500", etc.) or you have to dig for the answers to certain objections (such as the Nazarene objection and others). Another unfortunate thing: his verbage. Although better than Tovia Singer's, he still sometimes speaks in terms that confuse the average layman. Speaking of Singer, it seems that in every book Brown is grinding an axe against him. That and the lubavitchers. This might be okay if you know someone who's involved in the outreachjudaism organization, but not so good for other groups. And he misspelled the name of the "Jewsforjudaism" rabbi. The dead sea scrolls' validity has been questioned, but Brown builds several cases based upon them assuming they are valid. The references to Islam, ancient virgin cults and other fringe topics seem a tad unneccessary. Also, it's quite easy to get lost in Brown's complicated footnote system. It would seem that he has the entire Library of Congress at his disposal. But, to Brown's defense, he has left no stone unturned, and deemed no objection too silly. For most objections to Jesus, you can find what you're looking for just by looking at the table of contents. For the more obscure matters, one hopes that brown will produce a searchable CD-ROM providing access to such hidden information.
If you are serious about Jewish objections to Jesus Feb 1, 2005
This is a very important and scholarly work. No seeker of the truth on the issue of messianic prophecy would want to be without it. I look forward to a Jewish response(If one ever comes),perhaps as scholarly as this book or even better???
Best so far in the series Dec 24, 2004
I am a little disappointed that the author was not able to finish the series in the third book, but this one was definitly the best of the series! I started it at Togos, and wasn't able to put it down until I had finished it. It was just mind boggling how much evidence this fellow was bringing up to defend every fascit of objections that I have been hearing to Messianic Prophecies that I got from my cousin's Rabbi. But I must admit that now I am already growing anxious for the next book to come out...this is a really great series to invest in!
Necessary and Not a waste of time Nov 6, 2004
I thoroughly disagree with Mr.Reinckens regarding his opinion that Michael L. Brown's book series is pointless. Ignorance is never bliss. The assertion that only "ignorant" or "secular" Jews can be won and ministry to observant Jews is a waste of time is ludicrous. Contrary to the opinion of many Christians spiritual hunger for the Truth is found even in the midst of the most learned of Rabbinc Jews. The problem is that for too many years believers in Jesus have held to this erroneous view regarding observant Jews. Perhaps Mr. Reinckens has forgotten the Bereans who studied daily to see if "these things were true."
As a Jewish believer for almost thirty years now, I can tell you that these books have been very helpful to me in my study of the Torah and the New Testament commentaries and in dealing with unbelieving family members. These books are wonderful tools in our quest to follow 1 Peter 3:15 But sanctify the L-rd G-d in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear (KJV)
