Description : Jesus gave specific and succinct instructions on how to inherit eternal life, yet the Church sets those teachings aside. Amazing right? I will show you exactly how Christian Church doctrine leads people away from Jesus', and God's instructions for salvation and what to do about it. You will also read here about the great apostasy, the mark of the beast, the seal of God, what laws does God expect us to keep, saving grace, true repentance, the Church of Laodicea, Jesus' style of evangelism, Jesus' atonement, the nature of God, and much more. If you are a Christian or Jew, you salvation weights in the balance of knowing what is in this book.

Description : This book is for Jews and Christians. Jesus said, "Salvation is of the Jews" (John 4:22), and in Revelation 14:12 Jesus tells us that we must 'keep the commandments of God' have the 'faith of Jesus'. The Jewish Jesus told us to keep his teachings, and he said unless we do we will never see eternal life. I will compare the Jewish faith and the Christian faith to see which one best complies with Jesus' teachings. It will then be evident to you that most Christians are not saved according to Jesus' criteria, but 'Biblical Jews' are. I know that's a bold statement. But Jesus said, if we don't keep his teachings, we are not saved. I always thought that salvation was of the Christian faith - but Jesus said 'Salvation is of the Jews', now I know what he meant, and Christians had better take note before Judgment Day. Also read about evangelism Jesus' style, Jesus' parables, saving grace, Mark of the Beast, Seal of God, synagogue of Satan, why the church today is Laodicea and much more.

Description : What did Jesus mean when he said, "Salvation is of the Jews"? Jesus spoke this to a Samaritan woman who was not a Jew. At Jesus' time salvation was of the Jews because no other religion had the oracles of YHVH God. So Jesus came to seek and save the lost Gentiles, and the lost Jews. Jesus brought reformation to Judaism, which changed under Jesus' influence - so it again would be a channel for God's saving grace. And for the non-Jew, Jesus didn't come to start a new Christian Religion, Jesus came to gather that other flock (non-Jews) to his flock (Judaism) (John 10:16). so there would be one flock with one shepherd. All Jesus told us to do for salvation, is what Judaism practices; keeping YHVH 'law and the Prophets' (Matthew 5:17-20) and to worship YHVH alone (Matthew 4:10). Those in the Christian Church do neither because they have been deceived by the 'most cunning of beast', the serpent beast from the Garden of Eden. All of this and much more I will share in this book.

Description : The book traces the role of Judaism and the Jewish people in God's plan for the salvation of mankind, from Abraham through the Second Coming, as revealed by the Catholic faith and by a thoughtful examination of history. It will give Christians a deeper understanding of Judaism, both as a religion in itself and as a central component of Christian salvation. To Jews it reveals the incomprehensible importance, nobility and glory that Judaism most truly has. It examines the unique and central role Judaism plays in the destiny of the world. It documents that throughout history attacks on Jews and Judaism have been rooted not in Christianity, but in the most anti-Christian of forces. Areas addressed include: the Messianic prophecies in Jewish scripture; the anti-Christian roots of Nazi anti-Semitism; the links between Nazism and Arab anti-Semitism; the theological insights of major Jewish converts; and the role of the Jews in the Second Coming. "Perplexed by controversies new and old about the destiny of the Jewish people? Read this book by a Jew who became a Catholic for a well-written, provocative, ground-breaking account. Some of the answers most have never heard before." Ronda Chervin, Ph.D., Hebrew-Catholic

Description : Growing up in an ethnic suburb in Cleveland, Aaron Milavec was an impressionable adolescent whose religious and cultural influences made it natural for him to ?pity, blame, and despise Jews.? All of that began to change in 1955 when Mr. Martin, a Jewish merchant, hired Milavec as a stock boy. Milavec?s initial anxieties over working for a Jew surprisingly gave way to profound personal admiration. This, in turn, plunged Milavec into a troubling theological dilemma: ?How could God consign Mr. Martin to eternal hellfire due to his ancestral role in the death of Jesus when it was clear that Mr. Martin would not harm me, a Christian, even in small ways?? This book is not for the faint-hearted. Most Christians imagine that the poison of anti-Judaism has been largely eliminated. In contrast, Milavec reveals how this poison has gone underground?disfiguring not only the role of Israel in God?s plan of salvation but also horribly twisting the faith, the forgiveness, and the salvation that Christians find through Jesus Christ. This painful realization serves as the necessary first step for our healing. At each step of the way, Milavec?s sure hand builds bridges of mutual understanding that enable both Christians and Jews to cross the chasm of distrust and distortion that has infected both church and synagogue over the centuries. In the end, Milavec securely brings his readers to that place where Rabbinic Judaism and Christianity can again be admired as sister religions intimately united to one other in God?s drama of salvation.?For the last fifteen years Aaron Milavec has done groundbreaking scholarly work on the first century Jewish-Christian document, the Didache, and he is a veteran of local Christian-Jewish dialogue. His Salvation Is from the Jews is a stirring work that incorporates provocative theological perspectives along with numerous insights from recent official Church teaching. The author is specifically concerned that Church leaders, both lay and ordained, follow through with the trajectory defined in the study document, Covenant and Mission. In addition, he seeks to foster a more honest and soul-searching dialogue in living rooms, in congregations, and on the web.? Louise Barnes Vera Office for Ecumenical and Interfaith Relations Cincinnati, Ohio ?A personal, theological, and historical journey, Milavec's volume offers numerous reflections that challenge, that provoke, and that inspire.? Amy-Jill Levine E. Rhodes and Leona B. Carpenter Professor of New Testament Studies Vanderbilt Divinity School and Graduate Department of Religion Nashville, Tennessee ?The integration of the new understanding of the Christian-Jewish relationship that emerged from Vatican II?s Nostra Aetate still awaits completion. Aaron Milavec has moved ahead that process to a significant degree in Salvation Is from the Jews: Saving Grace in Judaism and Messianic Hope in Christianity. He has brought together the best of the biblical and theological scholarship on this question in the past several decades from with the official Catholic statements in a comprehensive framework that breaks new ground.? John T. Pawlikowski, O.S.M., Ph.D. Director, Catholic-Jewish Studies Program Catholic Theological Union Chicago, Illinois ?With extraordinary candor, Aaron Milavec challenges traditionally held Christian misconceptions about the Jewish Faith and sets the record straight. Salvation Is from the Jews makes it abundantly clear that unlike its relationship to other religions, Christianity shares an intimate bond with Judaism?a common spiritual pilgrimage that deserves to be affirmed and celebrated.? Keith F. Pecklers, S.J. Pontifical Gregorian University, Rome?Dr. Milavec has elegantly and passionately reframed the dialogue between Judaism and Christianity in purely theological terms and has taken into account both the past and the contemporary scene. He has created a Christian theology of Judaism and it is one well in advance of what is presently in hand.?

Description : “We had hoped it was he [the Messiah] who would redeem Israel” (Luke 24:21) In this book, you will learn that the religion Jesus founded was not Gentile or called “Christianity.” The name “Christianity” is not found in the New Testament—a work authored by Jews who followed Jesus; that the religion of Jesus was a form of Judaism that revolved around the Hebrew concept of “B’rit Hadashah,” meaning “New Covenant.” This concept first appeared in the writings of Jeremiah, one of the great prophets of Judaism; that to achieve the full task Jews have expected of their Messiah—of redeeming Israel and completing Gentile world salvation—there have been three separate stages in the work of Jesus the Messiah: (1) the Atonement & Resurrection stage; (2) the Gentile stage (represented by two thousand years of Gentile Christianity); and (3) the Jewish (or “Jewish redemption”) stage; that with regard to the Messiah’s prophecy on Jerusalem and on the completion (or “fulfillment”) of his Gentile stage—see Luke 21:24: “Jerusalem will be trampled on by the Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled”—on June 7, 1967 (the day Jerusalem fell to Jews), the Messiah’s prophecy was fulfilled. Hence, with June 7, 1967 formally marking the end of the Messiah’s Gentile (or “Christian”) stage, the Messiah’s final (or Jewish) stage has already begun; that with the “times of the Gentiles (or Christianity)” over, why Christians must adjust and reorient themselves to the new Jewish era and reality that is rising; many other topics of vital relevance to our present transitional era—from Gentile-Christian to Jewish-centered times—where world history is quickly reaching a tumultuous climax...centered on the Jews, Jesus the Messiah and the Messiah’s New Covenant Judaism as the winning side of end-time history.

Description : The question you must be asking yourself is, how does he dare say that the Jews are saved and the Christian are not saved? That indeed is a bold statement. In brief, Jesus said that it is those who keep his teachings that will have eternal life, so we will examine the Jewish faith and the Christian faith and see which best follows Jesus' teachings. After growing up Christian I always understood that salvation was of the Christian faith - but Jesus said 'Salvation is of the Jews', now I know what he meant - and you will too. The church that claims Jesus is their God and Savior, yet don't obey him. I will share where and how the church is failing to follow the Biblical Jesus, by setting aside his teachings. Jesus faced a similar problem in his day, which he addressed with his parables, I will share the true meaning of the parables, saving grace, mark of the beast, seal of God, how the church today is Laodicea, and much more. You will be amazed, shocked and perhaps angry as you read this book.

Description : Reading the books of the Law, the Pentateuch, in their original context is the crucial prerequisite for reading their citation and use in later interpretation, including the New Testament writings, argues Ben Witherington III. Here, he offers pastors, teachers, and students an accessible commentary on the Pentateuch, as well as a reasoned consideration of how these books were heard and read in early Christianity. By reading "forward and backward," Witherington advances the scholarly discussion of intertextuality and opens a new avenue for biblical theology.

Description : This book investigates the role of works in salvation in the Synoptic Gospels. Jesus was all too aware of people who claimed to believe in Him and yet proved to be not truly born again (e.g., John 2:23-25; 8:31-46). A profession of faith made at some point during one's life is no guarantee that heaven awaits that person. Such professions or conversion experiences must be followed by changed lives if faith is to be shown to be genuine saving faith. Hence Jesus teaches that regardless of one's profession, if one does not demonstrate a changed life produced by God, one will not enter into heaven. Such a judgment will be made when Jesus returns and judges every person according to his or her works. While this may seem contradictory to some more well-known passages ruling out the role of works in salvation (e.g., Rom 3:21-4:25; Gal 2:16-21; Eph 2:8-9), there is every good reason to understand that Jesus' teachings complement such passages. The works that admit one into heaven are not works produced by the flesh before conversion but works produced by God after conversion. They will fundamentally be characterized by a life of discipleship, love for others, and endurance in faith and obedience, and will therefore serve to confirm that one indeed did have a relationship with God during one's life. Hence Jesus did teach salvation by works. However God is the one who produces the works and they occur after conversion. Thus salvation is not one's initial conversion but one's final entrance into heaven.

Description : This book publication is so loaded and will be one of my most intriguing publication targeted at bringing the lost and wandering souls to Christ. Because of misinterpreted theologies, there are many who, after being prayed for and receiving miracles are thinking they have been saved. While some others come to the conclusion that Salvation is a 'one-time' decision by 'intellectually accepting' Jesus as their Lord and Savior. But Jesus disproved the error of this teaching: "said Jesus unto those Jews which 'believed' on Him, "If ye continue in my Word, then are ye my disciples indeed; AND ye shall KNOW the Truth, AND the Truth shall set you FREE." John 8:31-32. Therefore, in this edition, we would try to tighten all these loose ends of one of the most misunderstood teachings on "Salvation". Salvation and being born again have become intellectual slogans, so messed up in such that the apostate teaching of "Grace" produces nothing but a disgrace to Christianity. But God is not mocked! What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? Oh God forbid! How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein? Rom 6:1-2. As you will realize, it is not enough to just say it with your lips; but you have to truly show forth that you believe your confession. Many Christians just quote the first part of the verse Eph 2:8: "By grace are ye save..."; but the full text says, "By Grace are ye save THROUGH faith". Therefore, Salvation is "BY Grace THROUGH Faith" But without faith it is impossible to please Him: for he that cometh to God must believe that He is, and that He is a Rewarder of them that diligently seek Him". Heb 11:6. And as we can read, on the day of Pentecost, Acts 2:37-38, we realize that "GRACE through Faith" was clearly demonstrated! God by His sovereign Grace had drawn all the people together to hear the preaching of the Word that would give them the Faith (revelation) of Salvation. Peter preached the revelation of Jesus Christ, to the people and expounded them of the things that God was doing in their day, and what God had already accomplished in the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. And as always, the preaching of the gospel of Jesus convicted the heart and conscience of the predestinated sons and daughters of God. The Bible says ..."Now when they heard this, they were pricked [convicted] in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, men and brethren, "what shall we do"? That is the question we all need to find the answer: "What shall we DO - to be saved?" Now let us take note of Peter's answer: Then Peter answered and said unto them, 'Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. For the promise is unto you [Jews], and to your children [Jews], and to all that are afar off [Gentiles], even as many as the Lord our God shall call {Jews and Gentiles}." Now notice what Peter said: 1. Repent [acknowledge and be sorry) for your sin of unbelief. 2. Be Baptized (by immersion in water), in the NAME of Jesus Christ. 3. Receive the Gift of the Holy Ghost which makes us new creatures in Christ.

Description : Most Christians have some degree of familiarity with the Gospels according to Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. Fewer Christians have the same familiarity with the gospel according to Jesus. This gospel is something Jesus taught using figurative language such as parables and metaphors. This study examines the figurative parables, phrases, and words that are attributed to Jesus and His disciples. As an example, Matthew records that Jesus emphatically states, "Do not think that I came to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace but a sword" (Matt. 10:34). This statement alone appears to contradict with what most Christians believe a peace-loving Jesus represents! What is the gospel or "good news" that Jesus taught? What is the figurative meaning of words such as "sword," "leprosy," and "water" for example? Did Jesus raise people from the dead back to a physical life? Did Jesus feed thousands with a few loaves of bread? Is there a figurative understanding to the miracle parables? Did Jesus confirm that sin is original? What did Jesus say about His return? These and other Biblical questions are addressed and explained by Jesus and presented in this study for the reader's contemplation. This book is a must-read for the sincere Christian who wants to gain a deeper understanding and appreciation of who Jesus was and what He taught.

These are the very words of Jesus. He is speaking with two female disciples after the resurrection. Is it possible that Christianity, as we know it today, is a false teaching? Conflict and Christianity explores Jesus's nature and mission, early followers, the four gospels, and the following Christian Doctrines: Christ/Deity of Christ, Trinity, Atonement, Salvation, the Second Coming, Grace, Faith, Original Sin, New Covenant, Heaven, and Hell. Check out the amazing things that this man Jesus preaches like "forgive and be forgiven," "I said you are gods," "enter the Kingdom of Heaven," "seek first the Kingdom of God and His Righteousness," or "following the Spirit is like following the wind." Take a peak inside this exciting but controversial book. And don't take B. Daniel Peterson's word for it, break out your own Bibles and learn the truth for yourselves.

Description : The Catholic faith is not a set of rules or a body of doctrines, but is a way of life, writes David Scott. It's a lived faith that contains convincing, intellectually coherent, and spiritually fulfilling answers to the biggest questions: Who is God? Who is Jesus? Why are we here? Where are we going? The Catholic Passion invites readers into a conversation about the things that matter most. It is not an argument for the Catholic faith but a journey to the heart of it—a richly rewarding reflection on prayer, the Bible, sacraments, the church, and God-made-human in Jesus Christ. Scott does not tell the story of the faith through church documents or cate­chism quotations. Instead, he looks at the faith experience of real Catholics—people like the American writer Andre Dubus, the French composer Olivier Messiaen, the Chinese human rights activist Henry Wu, the French martyr Charles de Foucauld, and the American reformer Dorothy Day. These and other Catholics embody a faith that warms the heart as it enlightens the mind. One theme emerges from Scott's reflections on the lives of Catholics and the Scriptures: God's passion of love for humankind burns on in the Catholic Church. The Catholic passion is the conviction that there is nothing God will not do to win our love. "The Catholic Passion is a monumental work. David Scott weaves material from scripture, history, the arts, the liturgy, theology, spirituality, and personal reflection, showing us that nothing human is alien to Christ—and nothing divine is withheld from God's people." —Scott Hahn, author of The Lamb's Supper "The Catholic Passion is a masterwork—beautiful, compelling, and wonderfully readable; an outstanding portrait of what Catholics believe and why. I highly recommend it." —Charles J. Chaput, OFM Cap, archbishop of Denver "David Scott helps us see a vibrant Catholicism that offers brilliant meaning in a world darkened by materialism and violence. He presents a vision that allows the treasures of the past to envision an orthodox Catholicism for the future." —Fr. Mitch Pacwa, SJ, EWTN

Description : While translating the Bible into Boko, a language of Benin Republic in West Africa, Dr Jones grappled with the meaning of the expression ‘kingdom of God’. It seemed impossible to find an expression in Boko which would convey the correct meaning in its various contexts. What could it mean to enter or inherit the kingdom of God? Why did Jesus say the kingdom of God is near, or among people? How do we expect the prayer ‘your kingdom come’ to be worked out? Jesus said we should be concerned above all with God’s kingdom, and yet on questioning Christians and pastors, local and international, I few people are able to explain the meaning and relevance of the kingdom of God. Those who do know something usually interpret the kingdom according to their view of the millennium, resulting in very different interpretations of end-time events. Some interpret the kingdom as God’s sovereignty over the universe, others as ‘God’s rule in our hearts’, ‘Christ’s present salvation and its benefits’, or ‘the new life in Christ’. Many think of heaven as our destination, and the kingdom becomes a shadowy doctrine, rather than the glorious truth that God has made the saints to be a kingdom of priests who will reign with the Messiah over the earth. This new look at the theology of the kingdom of God clarifies many of the riddles concerning the kingdom and presents a new understanding of Jesus and his ministry as the Messiah. The book explains clearly what Jesus meant by this unique and cryptic phrase, and it makes sense in every context. The kingdom is truly a pearl of great price to be eagerly awaited as the return of the Messiah draws ever nearer.

Description : When Jesus said, “Salvation is from the Jews” (John 4:22), he expressed what Jews today have known for four thousand years. Though he was rejected by a Jewish majority, Jesus nevertheless sided with all his Jewish kinsmen when he made his declaration. Included in Jesus’ words is the idea that God chose the Jews alone to lead in the world’s salvation. This means that even the salvation which Christianity proclaims has always been led by Jews. This is said in the sense that Jesus as Savior comes from the Jews, and Christianity’s New Testament foundation is also the product of Jews. Hence, since Gentile Christianity is nothing without its Jewish New Testament foundation and Jesus as Jew, Gentile Christianity has always been dependent on and led by Jews. On June 7, 1967, Gentiles lost control of Jerusalem. On that same date, in fulfillment of Jesus’ prophecy, “the times of the Gentiles” came to fruition (Luke 21:24). Accordingly, the era of Gentile-centered Christianity officially ended at that point. Since then, a transitional period has been restoring a long-lost Jewish-centered Christianity, and Gentile Christians are rallying to its support. In its fullness of restoration, Jewish-centered Christianity will take the leading role in the Christian world; the Messiah will return thereafter; he will inaugurate his kingdom on a renewed earth; and all of saved humanity from the time of Adam will be united on earth under the universal rule of God, in accordance with Jewish prophecy.

Description : Jesus as an Orthodox Jew Was Jesus an Orthodox Jew? This idea might seem surprising and controversial, but when comparing the teachings of Jesus with Rabbinical tradition, it is identical. For almost 2000 years, believers from all over the world have misunderstood who Jesus really was, as the Gospels seem to show Jesus as a rebel who revolts against the "Pharisees," thus making the theme a story about Jesus verses the Jews. When viewing this through a proper understanding of the Talmud, which has preserved the oral tradition from first century Judaism, the entire context of all that Jesus said shifts, and we see him as Rabbi Yeshua, and his teachings are in line with the school of Hillel and of Rabbi Gamaliel, whose opponents were the Pharisees of the school of Shammai and the Sadducees, who were more secular or agnostic in their beliefs. In Judaica: Salvation is of the Jews, Gregory Alexander offers amazing new insights into the life and teachings of Jesus, and shows that Rabbinical Judaism, along with the mysteries of Kabbalah, combine to reconcile Jesus with the Jewish religion into which he was born.

Description : If you have ever wanted to believe in God, in the face of so much that would say He doesn’t exist, this is the book for you. On the scientific level, The God’s Honest Truth is just that, a book of truth, discussing what scientific proof is, as opposed to what is mere science fiction; regarding universal beginnings. It deals with issues of six-day creationism, offers evidence for a worldwide flood, and denounces evolution for what it is. On a theological level, it is a primer for contemporary biblical thinking, teaching believers what the Bible says on the important issues of life. It discusses why evil exists in the face of an all-loving God and whether the fate of sinful man will be perpetual torture in the fires of hell. Lastly, it walks readers through such historical subjects as Christian participation in warfare, slavery, and speaks to the more current issues of abortion and gay rights. Based strictly on biblical doctrines, when rendering decisions, it is meant as a guide through the ever-changing customs and conceived morality of life on planet Earth.
