Item description for Expectations: About God and Messiah by Patrick Prill...
Overview Expectations About God And Messiah is a book that presents the case for Yeshua (Jesus) as Messiah. It seeks to do so in a non-aggressive way that is sensitive to Jewish people. It starts by building a foundation rooted in the Tanakh. It also draws upon Jewish philosophers, historians, the Babylonian Talmud, the Zohar, and a variety of other rabbinic sources. The foundation addresses such questions as: * Why did God call Abraham? * Why did God appear to Abraham and others? * What were the covenants all about? * What was the sacrificial system of worship all about? * What does the Tanakh say about Messiah? * Is Messiah the Son of God? From this foundation, the book then examines the case that Yeshua's followers make to support their belief that he is the Messiah. But, it also explores several other related questions: * Did Yeshua reject Judaism? * Did Yeshua's followers reject Judaism? * How did the new branch of Judaism become separated from the tree of Rabbinic Judaism? * How was it that Judaism survived - but "Christianity" thrived? * How could this be Judaism? * Is there proof? Expectations About God And Messiah was written for a Jewish and a non-Jewish audience. In presenting the case for Yeshua, it provides a framework to equip all of Yeshua's followers to share their beliefs.
Publishers Description Written for both a Jewish and Christian audience, it seeks to present the case that Jesus is the Messiah in a non aggressive, Jewish-friendly way. It also seeks to address many of the fundamental questions that Jews have about the Messiah and about the claims that Jesus's followers make.

Expectations About God and Messiah May 3, 2004
I wish I had this book 35 years ago. The historical and Biblical evidence Patrick Prill provides the reader lead to logical answers to tough questions. What a great learning tool for any student of theology. All Jewish and Christian Clergy should make this a standard tool for teaching and indeed their own understanding of WHO the living Messiah is. Prill's book transcends doctrine with evidence from the "word". The clouded murky waters surrounding Messiah are filtered clear through inspired thought. I hope there are more books from Prill to come. I am sorry I could give this extraordinary text only 5 stars. It's a solid TEN.
