"Jesus the Messiah" is a basic, non-technical introduction to the life of Christ, carefully tracing His life and works as evidence of the truth of His claims and of the firm convictions of the early Christians--an inspirational study of Christ's life. The author prefaces his work by admitting that "Many deny the possibility of writing a life of Jesus, and it must be conceded that no 'life' in the biographical sense can be written. It is impossible to produce a psychological study of Jesus. His developing awareness of messianic mission cannot be traced. This book presents an account of Jesus from the perspective of faith. It sees in His deeds and words evidence of the truth of His claims and of the firm convictions of the early Christians. . . . No one who reflects on His life and mission can fail to be affected by it, and in this sense the present study is in the nature of a personal testimony."
Jesus: Is He Israel's Messiah? Indeed he is! This book seeks to give evidence for Jesus being the Messiah of Israel and the world by drawing on various sources ranging from certain ideas observed in the Dead Sea Scrolls produced by the Qumran community, including illuminating certain writings concerning Messiah generated by ancient rabbis. The author also seeks to establish many prophecies fulfilled by Christ as spoken of in the Tanakh (Old Testament) and gives a strong case for miracles and the resurrection of Jesus. An exposition of selected parables taught by Jesus at the end of this book will reveal that the very claims he made about himself came from no other than Messiah-authenticated by his own ministry of miracles, fulfilled prophesy, performing resurrections including his own literal and physical rising from the dead.
One of the best known and most important references on the life of Christ ever written, Alfred Edersheim's "The Life and Times of Jesus the Messiah" is a storehouse of information on the background of the New Testament. This classic work successfully portrays the streets, the marketplaces, the religious conflicts, the people, and the places of Jesus' earthly ministry.
Exactly 6,884 years ago, the journey of man began with splendour, but disobedience to the Commands of God Almighty provoked God's anger which affected creation in its entirety. Mankind began to experience suffering, pain, sorrow and deaths for over 4,000 years. 2,000 years ago out of compassion God Almighty released back to earth His only begotten son Jesus Christ to reveal the plan of God's coming earthly Kingdom to the entire world through the gospel of the kingdom of God that the Holy Bible testified about. Jesus Christ paid the full price with his life for the original sin, so that God's plans can proceed as He desired. Now the Son of Man is back with the Kingdom of God which the entire world has never experienced before. I am Adam, Jesus, and now the awaited Messiah and I command you to pick up this book and study it so that it may be well with you and your loved once forever. The times recorded in Malachi 4 have now arrived. I have been sent by the "LORD of hosts, I AM, King of Grace and Glory, Almighty God" to Lead the entire world out of its misery. The Kingdom of God Almighty now rests in your hand.
Offering readers a fascinating glimpse of life and religious belief in first-century Palestine, the author analyzes the mysterious "suffering servant" described in the Dead Sea scrolls, a messianic figure with remarkable similarities to Jesus.
The scope of the subject presented in this work is expressed on the title page. It will be readily seen that the author has departed from the course usually followed by writers on the Life of Jesus Christ, which course, as a rule, begins with the birth of Mary's Babe and ends with the ascension of the slain and risen Lord from Olivet. The treatment embodied in these pages, in addition to the narrative of the Lord's life in the flesh comprizes the antemortal existence and activities of the world's Redeemer, the revelations and personal manifestations of the glorified and exalted Son of God during the apostolic period of old and in modern times, the assured nearness of the Lord's second advent, and predicted events beyond all so far as the Holy Scriptures make plain.
Lionel Attwell, a former highly successful national newspaper reporter, spent seven years investigating the Christian Church and discovered that it was built on a premeditated perversion of the original Hebrew/Greek Scriptures ingeniously mutated to fit its warped agenda and erroneous doctrines. In the process it created a pagan counterfeit Christianized Messiah. His research also reveals the incredible events which actually occured in the Garden of Eden: the forbidden fruit was a narcotic and aphrodisiac; when "high" Eve was seduced by Satan and gave birth to a child with mutated genes subsequently inherited by the whole of mankind. He also explains the causes of human disasters and suffering. This book will change your life.

Five thousand years ago, a spaceship from far away mysteriously crash-lands on Earth. The crew senses an evil presence on the planet but, nevertheless, settles in. Since their ship is irreparable, and they have no communication with their home planet, they have no choice but to make Earth their new home. Eventually, the crew intermixes with the primitive natives of Earth. Three thousand years pass, and Sathel, the head of the Xerxes Galaxy, becomes intrigued by a phenomenon he has noticed occurring across the universethe occasional arrival of a messianic individual on a primitive planet, signaled by an unusual star. When such a signaling star is noted over Earth, he sends an investigatory expedition to find out more about this messiah, the fifteenth, according to his count. His instructions are for the investigators to enter the society incognito and observe the messiah as closely as possible and then report back. Enemies of Sathel send hostile forces to Earth at about the same time, and their goal is the destruction of the messiah. Toler is Sathels spy, and he is given one crew member, Sarn, a young man without any experience and totally ignorant of the nature of the expedition. Toler is angry at the apparent shortsightedness of Sathel but decides to go ahead with his mission. Toler and Sarn develop a close relationship as they meet up with the hostile forces from back home. Inevitably, they become involved with Earth people, including Aleah, an innocent young girl, and Mary Magdalene. At times they also all move among the disciples and interact with the messiah. They meet up with Lish, an eccentric solo investigator from back home, who has spent twenty years on Earth searching for evidence of the original crash landing three thousand years before. The hostile forces sent to sabotage the messiah become controlled by the evil force already inhabiting the planet. Toler and Sarn become instruments used by the good force embodied in the messiah. It becomes an epic battle of good versus evil. New Testament events are woven through the telling, bringing a new dimension to the saga of good versus evil, an age-old conflict of universal proportions. The story ends with Toler and Sarn returning to their home planet and confronting Sathel for having placed them in great peril on Earth. All is explained, except for one question.
JESUS THE MESSIAH IN THE HEBREW BIBLE deals with the messianic texts found in the Hebrew Bible. Shifting away from conventional paradigms, Eugen Pentiuc develops a new way of understanding the presence of Christ in the Old Testament. His approach is ontological, based on the view that Jesus the Messiah was pre-existent, and he appeared in manifold forms throughout the Hebrew Bible prior to his human incarnation in the New Testament. This book provides an accurate exegetical basis for reviewing the prophetic indicators--"as well as the literary explications--"of the relationship between the Old Testament prophecy and the New Testament fulfillment of Jesus the Messiah. Intended as primarily a pastoral work, based on theology and biblical exegesis, it contains' homelitic outlines and samples. Also included are the church Fathers' writings on the most important issues of hermeneutics. This book is a work of exegesis and biblical theology entwined with pastoral guidance. It will be a useful tool for both ministers and faithful in their quest of Christ in the Old Testament.
Intrigue. Politics. Lies. Power struggle. Sound like a thriller? It's the Bible. In Jesus: God, Man or Party Label?, Chris Albert Wells argues that the interpretation of the Gospels we have been taught as Truth ignores a bitter battle of intra-community conflicts and strategies. To discover the nature of the initial split, Wells encourages us to give a new look at the Essene Dead Sea Scroll Messiahs and then to Northern Syria, where the first Gospels were written in a community called Essene before being called Christian. The reader will discover here the background that ultimately produced the Gospels and what they really meant to those who wrote them. Within this community context, Jesus will be just as alien to established Church traditions as to modern historical portrayals or mythical castings forwarded by scholarly textual criticism. Wells challenges us to question everything we have been told, and to understand the story of Jesus in an entirely new light.
The purpose of this work is simply to:a)Prepare and encourage the 'true believer' to remain true to 'Jesus Christ as Personal Lord and Savior'. The Prince of Peace will eternally rule.b)Warn the 'non-believer' as to what will happen to him or her if they continue in sin, in blasphemy, in indifference, or in corruption and violence. No more weapons, nor instruments of cruelty and death.The Lord God will rescue all true believers! He will also rescue and redeem all of Creation, including every living creature that He made in the Beginning, including all variants of the same. (Remember Noah and the Ark?) Creation and creature will be saved and redeemed. Creator, Creation, and Creature (including us) will all walk hand-in-hand.

*Includes pictures*Discusses various theories surrounding Judas's betrayal*Includes excerpts from Scripture *Includes a bibliography for further readingThe life story of Jesus of Nazareth, considered by billions of Christians to be the Messiah prophesized in the Old Testament of the Bible, is perhaps the most famous in history. Described in detail in the New Testament, Jesus comes from both divine yet humble roots, born in a manger to a young woman, but in time he leads a fervent following as tales of his miracles spread across the Holy Land.Some of the details are vividly depicted and instantly familiar. Jesus announces the imminent rule of God, the time when the true owner of this world will intervene decisively in Israel�s history to make right all the wrongs, once and for all. He leaves his footprints by the lakeside. He has no shoes, just like the multitude of dispossessed behind him; he doesn�t carry a money bag, not even a stick. He is followed not by the poor, since most of the people here live in poverty and resent in every way the invasive process of large-scale urbanization that the Roman Empire brought to Israel; he is instead followed by the dispossessed, the people who have nothing left, except their debts, the tax burden and the institutionalized violence that took away their means of livelihood, leaving them with not even a place to rest their heads. They avoid the roads full of armed rebels who have been resisting the Pax Romana for years, and they follow a leader who proclaimed himself Son of God throughout the Empire. The crucifixion and resurrection that follow create the climactic resolution of Jesus' life story and cement his status as the Christ, at least in the eyes of the burgeoning religious movement that would sweep across the region in the coming decades. An anonymous writer would compose the first gospel, Mark, and the major theme would be the way of Jesus to his death. His followers, whose movement would originally be called "the way," would also bring about a new religion that has lasted 20 centuries, and while it is focused on the figure of Jesus, the rural man of Israel who started it all, the historical Jesus was gradually enshrined under layers of sermons, chants, legends and philosophies that would be alien to Jews in Jesus's day. Like ideological strata, they covered the historical facts, obscuring the Jesus of history under the Christ of faith. Even someone with a casual knowledge of the Bible will recognize the name Judas Iscariot. Well known as the disciple who betrayed Jesus, the Messiah, with a kiss, Judas has become synonymous with betrayal and deception. The most infamous of the Apostles, Judas goes from true follower to a turncoat who seemingly sacrifices the cause for personal benefit. Not surprisingly, the names of the other disciples will appear in birth registries around the world, except for Judas, whose name is still associated with suspicion and even fear.It goes without saying that Judas is an interesting character in the development of the salvation history. His person, his act of betrayal and even his replacement were predicted by the Old Testament prophets, which some Biblical scholars take as evidence that Judas was doomed from the beginning to be the betrayer and had no choice. But by taking a closer look at the history, the reader will see several points along the way, even up to the moment of the final kiss, in which Jesus gave Judas the opportunity to repent. God's plan was going to be fulfilled, and God was going to use an individual to bring about the betrayal of Jesus, but at the same time, Judas made several conscious choices along the way to reject the Messiah and turn Jesus over to the Roman authorities. At the same time, a relatively recent discovery has cast doubt on the traditional understanding of Judas's life and actions. Any book about Judas must explore the known and unknown of his life, and the actions that led to Christ's crucifixion.
