Is He the Messiah of Israel?: Who Will Declare His Generation? a Dialogue Based on the Tanakh, Talmud, and Targumim; The Dead Sea Scrolls; And
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. --Keehus has produced an excellent work on the issue of messianic prophecy in which he not only provides evidence of how the messianic prophecies of the Hebrew Bible were fulfilled by Yeshua in the New Testament, but he also adds evidence from different forms of rabbinic writings to further substantiate the case. Furthermore, rather than a straight presentation, the book is put together in the form of dialogue, which makes it easy to read and to follow the logical argumentation. This book is highly recommended.-- --Arnold G. Fruchtenbaum Founder & Director Ariel Ministries --This book covers numerous supernatural predictions made hundreds of years in advance that were fulfilled by Jesus the Messiah. In light of its apologetic value, it makes a worthwhile read, especially for seekers and young Christians. I highly recommend it.-- --Norman Geisler Professor of Apologetics Veritas Evangelical Seminary --I highly recommend this book as a concise primer for the predictive prophecies of Christ in the Old Testament. These prophecies prove that Jesus is the divine Messiah, and also provide powerful apologetic evidence that the Bible indeed is the Word of God.-- --Ron Rhodes Professor of Theology Dallas Theological Seminary --Jesus: Is He Israel's Messiah? provides a fresh look at the Messianic claims of Yeshua of Nazareth. Nick Keehus draws on Rabbinic and other resources in a manner that makes it accessible to a young reader today--especially Jewish Israeli.-- --Erez Soref President Israel College of the Bible Magnus N. Keehus, a graduate of Calvary Chapel School of Ministry, and former Associate Pastor, has also completed graduate studies in apologetics and theology at Veritas Evangelical Seminary and Simon Greenleaf University. He is the host and producer of three documentaries filmed in Israel: Jesus and Evidence for His Resurrection; The Dead Sea Scrolls, Jesus, and Messianism, and Jesus and Fulfilled Prophesy.
