The Lost Gospel of the First Christians

The Original First-Generation Foundation You've Been Missing
  • By James E. Leuschen
$8.79
($11.95)

Jude, the half-brother of Jesus, exhorted believers to "contend earnestly for the faith once for all delivered to the saints" (Jude 3). What was that original Hebrew-oriented faith? Reconstructing the original apostolic teaching from the evidence of the New Testament, this book systematically develops the true gospel foundation given to the first generation of believers.

Learn the surprising message that inspired the first Jewish Christians (and then compare with what is taught today):
How did Jesus' bodily resurrection create a new way to grasp prophecy?
What did a crucified Messiah really signify, and what about the cross?
How did believing Jews transition from Old to New Covenant?
Along with Abraham and David, why was Adam so important?
What is the true nature of the Christian hope of eternal life?

"Jim Leuschen's book, The Lost Gospel of the First Christians, is a brilliant challenge to the modern Church to restore the Gospel that was preached in the early days following Christ's resurrection. Calling us to recognize the center of the apostles' preaching as the resurrection, rather than Christ's death on the cross, Jim recaptures the New Testament's focus on Christ's victory over death as the essence of His triumph."
