I received this book in exchange for an honest review.
Mysteries of the Messiah is a very intriguing book. I'm not sure what I thought I was going to read, but this book is in-depth and intense. I found myself wondering if I am even smart enough to read and understand it. Fortunately, Rabbi Sobel is excellent at explaining. My conclusion is that this is a book that needs to be read with attention and perhaps reread. I know I plan to read it again.
Rabbi Jason Sobel quickly gained my attention in his opening paragraphs of "The Adventure Begins". Here's a quote to give you a taste.
"The Bible is one of my favorite mystery books. From the opening words of Genesis to the final chapter of Revelation, God's Word is filled with tantalizing clutes, fascinating revelations, and an extraordinary plot. Many of the Bible's mysteries have nagged at our imaginations for centuries. There are odd characters, dysfunctional families, bloody battles, and courageous heroes yet incredible wisdom within the writings." Page ix
Rabbi Sobel then begins to connect the Old Testament to the New Testament with a desire to cause the reader to "experience an unraveling revelation that will cause your heart to burn with increased hope and blessing." It all points to Yeshua the Messiah. Jesus the Christ.
I had no idea that each letter of the Hebrew Bible has a corresponding number. Studying the numbers can help us understand deeper meanings behind the words and other words that have the corresponding number.
This is a book that I intend to read again more slowly and with focused attention. I think there is much in it that I didn't get in the first reading.
I highly recommend this book.
