I read this book, and found it to be a very good book. It is written to help Jewish people who are interested in Christianity to learn about Jesus and instances where He is predicted in the Old Testament. It is very interesting. I enjoyed this book so much that I think that not only Jewish people, but also Christians, might enjoy reading this book. In fact, I bought a few copies to give to my Christian friends. – Amazon Review
Does the Tanakh foreshadow Jesus?
While arguing with the Jewish religious leaders, Jesus said, “You search the Scriptures, because you think that in them you have eternal life; and it is these that bear witness of Me; . . .” In this series of books we will examine the Tanakh, or Hebrew Bible, in order to see if Jesus’ claim has any merit.
In Hesed Volume One we will study the subject of sacrificial atonement in the Torah to see if it foreshadows Jesus’ death on the cross. We will also study the lives of Isaac, Joseph, Moses, David, Daniel, and Cyrus. For, they each went through experiences that Jesus also wound up going through many centuries later. The question is, were these moments from their lives placed in the Tanakh intentionally or coincidentally?
Join author Mark Stouffer as he leads us on a quest to hear the message of the Tanakh, as opposed to what we want to hear. Hesed Volume One is for Jewish people who want to know the truth about Jesus. it is also for Christians who want to learn about the Hebrew Bible.
I’m not a Biblical scholar, but I am always curious to read what others think. Mark has written a very interesting book. I didn’t know much about the concept of Hesed, but as half my family is Jewish, and a family reunion was coming up, so I thought it would be interesting to discuss this with them.
Mark really brought to life the stories from the Old Testament as he described how God gave clues along the way about the coming of Jesus, and how God used these “clues” to prepare the Jewish people for the coming of the promised Messiah. I didn’t get much time with my family to discuss the book (too much eating and laughing about our childhoods), but I highly recommend “Hesed” to anybody who is interested in Biblical history and philosophical discussions of God’s plan. –Amazon Review
About the Author
My name is Mark Stouffer. I am a Christian. I am a layperson, and I enjoy reading the Bible. My goal in reading the Bible is to try to understand the meaning that each of the Bible authors is communicating.
I am writing this series of books to Jewish people who want to know the truth about Jesus.
While arguing with the Jewish religious leaders, Jesus said, “You search the Scriptures, because you think that in them you have eternal life; and it is these that bear witness of Me; . . .” In this series of four books, we will examine the Tanakh in order to see whether Jesus’ claim is fictitious or real.
Specifically, we will examine five elements in the Tanakh that appear to foreshadow or predict Jesus:
- Sacrificial Atonement in the Torah
- A series of Biblical heroes who had experiences that were similar to things that happened to Jesus
- The prophecy of the Tanakh
- G-d’s plan for humanity
- The incompleteness of the Tanakh in which the issue of our moral guilt is not decisively resolved
