For two millennia Christianity has stated that Jesus of Nazareth is the Messiah prophesized about in Jewish scripture.
But how have Christians justified these claims?
And from what sources do they draw their evidence that Jesus was in fact the Messiah?
Biblical scholar, Alfred Edersheim, in an extremely thorough study of Jewish scripture examines how Jesus Christ fulfilled the Messianic hopes of many Old Testament prophecies.
Through the course of twelve lectures Edersheim provides brilliant insight into the Old Testament and how the texts within it provide clear evidence of prophecy for the coming of Jesus Christ.
Yet, Edersheim does not stop at studying the Old Testament alone but also uses the Pentateuch, the Apocrypha and Pseudepigrapha to provide further examples that Jesus was indeed prophesized about by Jewish texts many centuries before he was born.
This book is essential reading for anyone who wishes to understand more fully how Jesus’ life was intertwined with old Jewish texts and for those who are looking for a scholarly, yet accessible, account of this fascinating topic.
Alfred Edersheim (1825-89) was a Vienna-born biblical scholar who converted from Judaism to Christianity. A veteran minister and missionary to the Jews of Romania, Edersheim left an enduring and priceless legacy to followers of Christ. Among his most widely read works are The Life and Times of Jesus the Messiah, The Temple: Its Ministry and Services, and Bible History Old Testament.
