Christianity did not appear from nowhere. It remains deeply rooted in the Hebrew traditions which it inherited. This book contains a series of studies based on just a few of the Hebrew origins of the Christian faith. Christians can only really understand their faith if they respect their faith's Hebrew background. The Jewish scripture provides the key to understanding the Christian faith. ""When I was invited to read the manuscript for this new book I was impressed on a number of levels. David's book gives a thorough foundation upon which the new believer and student of the Bible can gain biblical orientation which points to Jesus Christ. In addition, I believe the use of this book would be a wonderful complement to any syllabus of teaching and education in a seminary or Bible school setting. David's book gives form without bondage, freedom without license, and sends the right message of a biblical witness to the living Lord Jesus."" -- Niall MacTaggart, Spruce Grove, Alberta, Canada.
