Rays of Messiah's Glory
The New Testament begins with "The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham," immediately connecting the Lord Jesus with all the prophecies and promises of the Old Testament scriptures.
This book, written by a converted Jew, unfolds some precious truths concerning Christ in the Old Testament and will thrill the heart of the reader as he contemplates the glories of the Messiah.
"The following pages were written … for Christians, to whom - especially to the British Christians - I dedicate it as a token of gratitude for having on their shores first heard of Him, faith in Whom has ever since filled me with "joy unspeakable and full of glory;" and also as a token of appreciation of their endeavours to bring those to a knowledge of Christ, through whom in the first place their salvation came (John 4:22), and "whose are the adoption, and the glory, and the covenants, and the giving of the law, and the service of God, and the promises, whose also are the fathers, and of whom is Christ, as concerning the flesh, Who is over all, God blessed for ever."" - from the preface
The Servant of Jehovah
This book, written by a converted Jew, is an exposition of Isaiah 53, subtitled "The sufferings of the Messiah and the glory that should follow." Its deep insights will draw out the heart of any reader to the One by "whose stripes we are healed."
"If the reader receives only a fraction of the spiritual help and enjoyment which the writer found in the course of his meditation and exposition of this truly wonderful Scripture he will be amply rewarded. It has, if possible, wrought deeper conviction in his heart that Jesus of Nazareth is indeed the Christ, the promised Redeemer of Israel - He "of whom Moses in the law and the prophets did write;" for it is beyond even the wildest credulity to believe that the resemblance in every feature and minutest detail between this prophetic portraiture drawn centuries before His advent and the story of His life, and death, and glorious resurrection as narrated in the Gospels, can be mere accident or fortuitous coincidence. It has also strengthened my hope for the future blessing of the nation from which I have sprung, and for which I have not ceased to yearn with the yearnings of Him who wept over Jerusalem." - from the forward
Christ as seen in the Offerings
Why study the offerings? "I have so much to study: the Gospels, the epistles!" If you miss the offerings you'll miss plumbing more fully the depths and riches of the person and work of Christ.
This little, easy-to-read series of studies on the Levitical Offerings pulsate with devotion to Christ. Your interest will be drawn immediately to the author's engaging style and your heart will be warmed as the full meaning of what Christ means, first to God and then to His people, is unfurled.
"My intention is to take up, in a simple way, as the Lord may help me, some of the offerings mentioned in the book of Leviticus; because they set forth, in a special manner, the person and the work of the Lord Jesus Christ; and also, we may add, the blessings which have become ours through what He has done." - the author.
