When did this book use scripture to prove scripture? Apr 5, 2008
This I have pondered rather the arthur can use scripture to show what was being stated on page 33 instead of bringing forth theories throughout the book and here is one example from page 33 where the arthur uses from what is stated on this page to be the back bone of the rest of the book. So here is something for all to consider where the arthur uses: Jas 1:13 Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man: "AND" Num 23:19 God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good? The arthur uses those verses to make the statement that "Yeshua was tempted and that God is not a man." So I ask the arthur of this book what this means? Does it mean YESHUA IS JUST A MAN and THIS MAKES HIM LIAR? and that YESHUA WAS TEMPTED TO SIN? So, I ask this was GOD TEMPTED and did GOD TEMPT? Gen 22:1 And it came to pass after these things, that God did "tempt" Abraham, and said unto him, Abraham: and he said, Behold, here I am. "How about in the book of Job and what about what Exodus 15:3 said YHWH being a man of war?" -- let us look at these verses and with such theories this book goes on about I wonder what theories these verses will be slammed into when someone considers the other scriptures in the bible? (Exo 15:3 YHWH is a man of war: YHWH is his name.) "AND" from this what about GOD being tempted in the book of Job? (Job 1:9 Then Satan answered YHWH, and said, Doth Job fear ELOHIM for naught? Job 1:10 Hast not thou made a hedge about him, and about his house, and about all that he hath on every side? thou hast blessed the work of his hands, and his substance is increased in the land.) So did Satan TEMPT GOD to remove the hedge about Job? and did Satan TEMPT GOD, rather Job really FEARED GOD? Job 1:11 But put forth thine hand now, and touch all that he hath, and he will curse thee to thy face. Did Satan TEMP YHWH to put forth his hand and touch all that he hath? SO, understand what it means to being TEMPTED and what it means to be TEMPTED into commiting a sin! Yeshua was NOT TEMPTED but, he was being TEMPTED and he did NOT sin and speak a LIE... Was not YHWH in COMPLETE CONTROL? NOW what about what Yeshua said NO MAN TAKES HIS LIFE BUT, HE LAYS IT DOWN OF HIMSELF.. (Joh 10:17 Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again. Joh 10:18 No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father.) How can you TEMPT Salvation? How can Salvation LIE? Thus the arthur goes over the meaning of words in this book and yet forgets what the word Yeshua means which is the very title of this book? So I have become greatly disappointed in the theories that are placed in this book instead of proving scriptures with scriptures or with the true meaning of the hebrew and greek of the scriptures and this in which I guess the arthur over looked in there introduction of this book and there study of the scriptures.
Here is a book that uses scriptures to show what other scriptures along with the meanings of certain words in the hebrew and greek with the meanings behind the translation. Recommend Book: "The Tower of Deception" by Louis Ruggiero

Fascinating exegesis and prophecies Sep 1, 2007
In this gripping book, the author sets out to clarify mankind's relationship with God and attempts to clear up certain age-old doctrinal issues of contention since, as he correctly observes, the Hebrew Scriptures have been manipulated by the churches. At the same time, he admits that the Bible can be confusing. The stated aim of the book is to provide order, sanity and common sense to the reader. He is very emphatic about using the Hebrew name of our Redeemer.
The first chapter, In The Beginning, deals with the creation of man, the fall and the blood sacrifice of animals that was needed to cover Adam and Eve's nakedness with skins. The explanation of the Gematria (meaning of the numerical value of the letters) in the word Adam and in the Hebrew "Beresheet" (In the beginning) is most illuminating. The next chapter, One In Purpose, addresses the issue of the Trinity which word is not found in the Bible, but please also see The Jewish Trinity by Yoel Natan in this regard.
Hierarchy Of Heaven is the title of chapter 3 which explains the relationship between the Father and the Son as well as other titles of Yeshua like Son of Man and The Anointed One. It draws heavily on the Book of Revelation. The next, Heart To Heart, discusses the gematria of the word for "heart" in Hebrew (Lev). The author provides a detailed explanation of the structure of the letters and points out the similarities between the earthly and heavenly temples.
Chapter 5, Created To Worship, looks at the Ten Commandments as the cornerstone of Judaism, of which the highest commandment is to love God and worship Him in spirit and truth. He condemns image worship and points out the many instances of contemporary practice of this abomination, like the celebrity cult. Chapter 6 explores terms like Born Again and the issue of works and faith.
The divine and earthy priestly orders are discussed in chapter 7, all the way back to the Garden of Eden, including the purpose of sacrifice (blood covering), the Ark of the Covenant, the function of the priesthood and the role of the High Priest. This thread is continued in chapter 8 where, amongst other issues, various types of offerings and sacrifices are explained, as well as Torah and the correspondence between life, blood and the color red. Blood from heaven was required to stop animal sacrifice once and for all.
Chapter 9 is devoted to Malki-Tzedek (Righteous King). The names of the archangels Michael, Gabriel, Raphael and Uriel are glimpses into the personification and qualities of Yeshua Messiah. The author explains the meaning of the name Mary (Maryam) as bitter water and elucidates the role of the Levitical priesthood with frequent references to the Book of Zechariah, also touching on the rebuilding of the Temple. The next chapter takes up the role of the prophets of Israel whose message of repentance is like a symphony of visions all in perfect harmony.
The final chapter looks at the various prophecies of Israel's suffering and redemption: Bondage in Egypt, Babylonian Captivity and the 430 years to the siege of Jerusalem. The prophet Amos is extensively discussed here. The frightening message that I gathered from this chapter is that ultimately Israel will stand alone again with all the nations of the world against her. That is when the Lion of Judah will come to save His people, restore the Kingdom and heal the earth.
Appendix A is a list of genealogies and Appendix B is a world map highlighting the Islamic nations and a list of these countries, with no explanatory text or legend. Informed people are aware that the most imminent threat to Israel comes from there but still, a short introduction would be useful. This is a bit of a non sequitur and it is to be hoped that the problem be corrected for a second edition.
I found this book extremely valuable for pointing out the many correspondences in the Bible in both the Old and the New Testaments, illuminating obscure issues and explaining matters that have always baffled me. But it is all a bit overwhelming - the book ought to be studied in depth, not read just once. I am also convinced that many Christian theologians will feel threatened by this exegesis.
The book seems to be aimed at a Messianic Jewish readership. I have observed that there is a wide spectrum of opinion and interpretation amongst Messianics on many issues. This author seems to come down on the strict side of Torah observance. As a gentile believer in Yeshua, I wish there were a little bit more love and compassion in his words. Personal names rarely remain exactly the same across different languages and in my opinion it would be improper, at the very least, to criticize sincere Christians for addressing the saviour as Jesus Christ. And, although Levy's writings illuminate, they also raise many more questions.

Not your typical book about the Messiah Oct 18, 2006
What "Yeshua: The Lion of Judah" brings to the table is unconventional but simple material that challenges conventional wisdoms and teachings about the Son of God. I have not come across anything like it as religous books go. The author is adamant that nothing should replace reading and studying the bible; though for me it has helped me to simplify what has not been easily understood in the bible. The author not only uses multiple scriptures to back his teachings and revelations about the Messiah, but he uses scripture to explain scripture. It is a good read that goes by too fast. This manual to the Son of God is packed full with information and it is hard to put down. The writing style is unpretentious and comes across in a knowledgeable manner without being overly spiritual. I would say no matter where people are in their spiritual studies there is something for everyone in "Yeshua: The Lion of Judah". The material addresses subjects like the trinity, creation, the preisthood, the prophets, salvation and some other interesting topics related to the Messiah. The book is a breath of fresh air- I give it five stars and look forward to more books from this author.
