Discovering your Jewish roots means discovering your Biblical roots!
In one sense it may be stated that the gospels are simply a Jewish debate among Jewish people about the true identity of a Jewish man, Jesus. And the story takes place in the Holy Land, Israel. Now what could be more Jewish than that?
In “Jewish Roots of Christianity: A Biblical Survey of Redemptive History from Genesis to Revelation”, Larry Stamm, a first-generation Holocaust survivor and Jewish follower of Jesus, examines the religion of the Old Testament and in its ultimate fulfillment in the messianic hope as detailed in page after page of the New Testament. Jesus himself challenges us to “search the Scriptures…it is these which bear witness of me” (John 5:39).
In this biblical survey, Larry Stamm introduces such topics as the gospel in the Old Testament, how the Feasts of Israel point to the person and work of Messiah Jesus, the historical interaction between Biblical Judaism and New Testament faith, and more.
Stamm is also the author of Serving in His Court: Biblical Principles for Personal Evangelism from the Heart of a Coach and Into the Gale: Twelve Evangelistic Lessons from the Book of Acts. To him, the objective evidence of the Hebrew Scriptures and the New Testament and the transformation of his life provides ample evidence that Jesus was who he claimed to be – the Savior of all mankind.
