Description : Alfred Edersheim (March 7, 1825 - March 16, 1889) was a Jewish convert to Christianity and a Biblical scholar known especially for his book The Life and Times of Jesus the Messiah (1883). Alfred Edersheim believed that some knowledge of ancient Jewish society was necessary for the general reader of the New Testament to fully understand Jesus' life and works. Edersheim's The Life and Times of Jesus the Messiah is an informal commentary on the Four Gospels, which highlights the intellectual and religious perspectives of the people who lived during the time of Jesus. By consulting both Rabbinic Law and Talmudic writings, Edersheim paints a vivid picture of the various locations where Jesus would have walked, prayed, and preached. Not only does Edersheim provide useful geographical and political clarifications, he also offers insight into the emotional and psychological experiences of individual Biblical characters as well. From Jesus' birth in Bethlehem, to His death, resurrection, and ascension into heaven--Edersheim reports the stages of Jesus' life in exceptional detail, bringing animation and color into a set of stories that may seem distant to readers today.

Description : Excerpt from The Life and Times of Jesus the Messiah, Vol. 1 of 2 IN issuing a new edition of this book I wish, in the first place, again to record, as the expression of permanent convictions and feelings, some remarks with which I had prefaced the Second Edition, although happily they are not at present so urgently called for. With the feelings of sincere thankfulness for the kindness with which this book was received by all branches of the Church, only one element of pain mingled. Although I am well convinced that a careful or impartial reader could not arrive at any such conclu sion, yet it was suggested that a perverse ingenuity might abuse certain statements and quotations for what in modern parlance are termed 'anti-semitic purposes. That any such thoughts could possibly attach to a book concerning Him, Who was Himself a Jew Who in the love of His compassion wept tears of bitter anguish over the Jerusalem that was about to crucify Him, and Whose first utter ance and prayer when nailed to the Cross was: Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do would seem terribly incongruous and painful. Nor can it surely be necessary to point out that the love of Christ, or the understanding of His Work and Mission, must call forth feelings far different from those to which reference has been made. To me, indeed, it is difficult to associate the so-called Anti Semitic movement with any but the lowest causes: envy, jealousy, and cupidity on the one hand or, on the other, ignorance, prejudice, bigotry, and hatred of race. But as these are times when it is meces sary to speak unmistakably, I avail myself of the present opportunity to point out the reasons Why any Talmudic quotations, even if fair, can have no application for anti-semitic purposes.

Description : This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1883 edition. Excerpt: ...must be due to the exceeding compression in the language of St. Matthew, and to this, that Christ would purposely leave indefinite the interval between ' the desolation of the house' and His own Return. Another point of considerable importance remains to be noticed. When the Lord, on quitting the Temple, said: 'Ye shall not see Me henceforth, ' He must have referred to Israel in their national capacity--to the Jewish polity in Church and State. If so, the promise in the text of visible reappearance must also apply to the Jewish Commonwealth, to Israel in their national capacity. Accordingly, it is suggested that in the present passage Christ refers to His Advent, not from the general cosmic viewpoint of universal, but from the Jewish standpoint of Jewish, history, in which the destruction of Jerusalem and the appearance of false Christs are the last events of national history, to be followed by the dreary blank and silence of the many centuries of the 'Gentile dispensation, ' broken at last by the events that usher in His Coming.11 st. Luke, .., ! xi. 21 ic. Keeping m mind, then, that the disciples could not have conjoined the desolation of the Temple with the immediate Advent of Christ into His Kingdom and the end of the world, their question to Christ was twofold: When would these things be? and, What would be the signs of His Royal Advent and the consummation of the 'Age'? On the former the Lord gave no information; to the latter His Discourse on the Mount of Olives was directed. On one point the statement of the Lord had been so novel as almost to account for their question. Jewish writings speak very frequently of the so-called 'sorrows of the Messiah' (Chevlej shel Meshiachbl). hsh..ii. These were partly thos.e of the Messiah, an

Description : This book is an unforgettable journey that is a must read for every believer. As the days grow darker it is essential everyone who desires to live for Jesus, understand the difference between Churchianity and Christianity. This book clears a path through the religious jungle, and clearly identifies the Way of Salvation. This necessarily involves the full extraction of the common religious practice of tithing from Christian doctrine. What is this book about? It is about everything that pertains to Godliness, and everything that frustrates Godliness. It is about growing in Christ and blossoming in faith, as well as dying to pride and rejecting the world. We are shown the difference between the treasures of Grace and the treasures of the world as we learn a new appreciation for our Lord Jesus Christ and all He won on the cross for us. This book is a guide to spiritual maturity where we learn to say along with John the Baptist, He must increase, but I must decrease. (John 3:30 KJV) Something involved in these issues is dealing with questions that have plagued many believers about how Malachi 3:8-11 has been taught to them: Am I really cursed as a robber of God for failing to pay my tithes? Will I really open up new Heavenly windows of blessing by faithfully paying my tithes? The answers to these questions involve all the schools of systematic theology which requires a deep thorough inspection into the contents of the Gospel of Grace, the plan of salvation, and the Priesthood of Christ

Description : "The Life and Times of Jesus The Messiah" is a Life of Christ documentation within a first century setting that includes highly detailed commentary across the full spectrum of the Gospels. The original work, comprised of five volumes, was written by Alfred Edersheim and was first published in or about 1883. This vast work builds on a foundation of historical, sociological, philosophical and theological references, and has as one of its primary aims to set the Gospels of the New Testament in chronological order. As each of the Gospels has its unique presentation of the story of Christ, Edersheim's chronological presentation and commentary reveals important threads and story lines that are not immediately obvious with their reading in the usual order. This abridgment follows Edersheim's chronological set out, retains the high points of his commentary and includes the passages of the Gospels immediately below his commentary for easy reference. Also included in this abridgment are rudimentary maps tracing the movements of Christ as well as pictures from Galilee, Nazareth and Jerusalem, some photos being well over 100 years old, preserving images of important New Testament sites in a setting far more like the time of Christ then can be seen in modern developed Israel. Edersheim's original work is reduced by about 90% in this abridgment providing a chronological framework for reading the four Gospels side by side and simultaneously, within the highpoints of his commentary. It is an excellent experience for beginning bible readers, a good introduction to intermediate students wanting to work their way up to a study of the full five volumes, and a quick reference or companion tool for those who are studying the work in its entirety.

Description : Christians in general--and preachers of prophecy in particular--attribute the fulfillment of hundreds of Old Testament messianic prophecies to Jesus of Nazareth. Often these claims arise in the uncritical environment of Christian churches or popular literature that is treating messianic prophecy. People with critical thinking abilities, and those endowed with a skeptical nature, often have key questions that remain unaddressed in such environments. These thinkers and skeptics are the people that will be most interested in this work. The primary question addressed is this: "Do critically acceptable historical-evidential reasons exist for believing that Jesus Christ is the direct fulfillment of some specific Old Testament messianic texts?" Approaching this question within a framework that eliminates any possibility of staged prophetic fulfillment, and those that may occur by mere chance or collusion, produces results that must be taken seriously. Even with these strict criteria, Jesus emerges as the only viable candidate to fulfill some of the prophecies included in this study. For other prophetic texts, the evidence is not as abundant or convincing. However, even these texts yield several minimal facts that directly impinge on New Testament claims about Jesus.

Description : The keystone of Christianity is Jesus’s physical, bodily resurrection. Present-day scholars can be significantly challenged as they forage through voluminous documents on the resurrection of Jesus. The literature measures well over seven thousand sources in English-language books alone. This makes finding specific sources that are most relevant for specific scholarly purposes an arduous task. Even when a specific book is relevant, finding the parts of the book that are most relevant to the resurrection rather than other topics often requires additional effort. A Thematic Access-Oriented Bibliography of Jesus’s Resurrection addresses these challenges in several ways. First, the bibliography organizes more than seven thousand English sources into twelve main categories and then thirty-four subcategories, which are designed to help you find the most relevant literature quickly and efficiently. Embedded are pro and con arguments which support efficient access through brief annotations and then annotate the diversity and complexity of the field of religion by including sources that represent a diverse range of views: theistic (e.g., Christian, Jewish, Muslim, etc.), agnostic, and nontheistic. The objective of this bibliography is to provide convenient access to relevant sources from a variety of perspectives, allowing you to browse or find the one source accurately and with ease.

Description : This book has been in the making for 50 years; ever since Thomas Moore found a germ within the tithing doctrine that departed from the Living God. Thomas set out in 1973 to expose where this germ corrupts the basic doctrines of the New Testament, but in so doing he found that he needed to acquire a full understanding of all the primary Christian doctrines. This required reading the entire Bible from cover to cover many times in different translations, as well as compiling an extensive theology library. Years were spent reading entire commentaries, word studies, and systematic theology by various scholars, along with sermons and lessons from the greatest preachers of all time. In 2015 the author finished following the tithing germ through every school of theology and discovered the specific truths of Scripture being violated. In 2015 he began writing the book to refute each false teaching that supports the false doctrine of tithing and expose all of its fallacies, heresies and blasphemies, which was published in November of 2019 as Living Waters from Difficult Passages. The book is very thorough. It not only exposes the heresies and blasphemies, but also contains the popular verses of Scripture that pastor’s abuse, in order to support the tithing practice. This made the book almost 500 pages long. Many people are not interested in a book that large, so the author developed this book as a companion book, which is a quick and easy read; just covering the basic blasphemies of the religious tithing teaching. If reading TITHINGISM peaks your interest for more insights and Biblical evidence into the false teachings of the tithing tradition, then Living Waters from Difficult Passages will satisfy completely.

Description : The life of Jesus Christ takes on fresh clarity and meaning in this masterful work by Dwight Pentecost. The words, the miracles, and overarching message of the Messiah come alive in flowing and detailed chronology, set against the cultural, political, and religious setting of his day. You'll gain new understanding of why Jesus came, how he operated, and what he accomplished. Above all, you'll acquire a deeper appreciation for the love that guided his path, beginning in a manger in Bethlehem, leading through three and a half years of ministry that ended abruptly at the cross on Golgotha, and blazing forth in eternal triumph at the resurrection. Drawing liberally on the works of others who have written about Christ, such as Alfred Edersheim, J. W. Shepherd, W. Graham Scroggie, and Frederick Faraar, Dr. Pentecost reveals in his own writing a familiarity with the subject that comes from years of teaching. Yet he writes, not as one who knows all there is to know about Christ, but with the restraint of one who knows that Jesus is to be worshiped and adored as the great King, and that no book can do more than begin to tell all the wonders of his being and his love.

Description : 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.

Description : Seeking peace and safety after a hard childhood, Leah marries Judah, a strong and gentle man, and for the first time in her life Leah believes she can rest easily. But the land is ruled by Antiochus IV, descended from one of Alexander the Great's generals, and when he issues a decree that all Jews are to conform to Syrian laws upon pain of death, devout Jews risk everything to follow the law of Moses. Judah's father resists the decree, igniting a war that will cost him his life. But before dying, he commands his son to pick up his sword and continue the fight--or bear responsibility for the obliteration of the land of Judah. Leah, who wants nothing but peace, struggles with her husband's decision--what kind of God would destroy the peace she has sought for so long? The miraculous story of the courageous Maccabees is told through the eyes of Judah's wife, who learns that love requires courage . . . and sacrifice.

Description : Is the rapture still going to happen? And if so, when? With contributing scholars from schools like Moody Bible Institute, Dallas Theological Seminary, and The Master’s Theological Seminary, Evidence for the Rapture is a convincing and thoroughly biblical case for the rapture. This collection of exegetical essays looks at the rapture from a number of biblical angles: the words of Jesus in the Gospels, Paul’s teachings in the epistles, and even prophetic and apocalyptic literature. In sound exegetical technique, the authors corroborate Scripture’s main teachings on the end times to provide a trustworthy and concise treatment of a multi-faceted issue. For the last several hundred years, the doctrine of a pretribulation rapture has been a fixture in many churches and institutions. Evidence for the Rapture is a fresh polish upon this long-standing doctrine.

Description : This book investigates why, unlike in the early centuries, the ethical behavior of Christians today is so little different from that of non-Christians. It does this by first reviewing the teachings of Jesus about how Christians are to live and the positive response of early Christians to these teachings. The major portion of the book then documents how the rise of asceticism and the proliferation of church law came to eclipse Jesus' teachings of serving others through unselfish love. It reviews how Chrysostom, Augustine, Luther, and others tried to return the church to the New Testament way of life. The book reaches two conclusions: Christians today prefer to live by only avoiding the gross evils forbidden by the Ten Commandments rather than by Jesus' all-inclusive New Commandment of loving one another as he loved us. They are also willing to offer God the piety of churchly activity, but what God also asks, a life of goodness serving one's fellowman, they feel is just asking too much.

Description : The cross of Christ is undeniably central to the Christian faith. But, how can the cruelty and brutality of a two-thousand-year-old Roman cross touch base with a hedonistic world that has been so desensitized towards violence? Within the postmodern setting of a body-obsessed culture, Christianity urgently requires an innovative and stimulating way of understanding the cross and its atoning significance. At the heart of this book is the Naked Christ--an emblem through which the author draws on the rich resources of the Christian tradition in its portrayal of the cross. He explores how the metaphors of nakedness and clothing can encapsulate aspects of atonement and enable them to be understood within a variety of contemporary contexts. The Naked Christ is a useful resource for anyone seeking fresh ways to express what the cross of Christ means to contemporary culture.
