Mysteries of the Messiah by Rabbi Jason Sobel

 


Are you settling for half the story? Highlighting connections that have been hidden from non-Jewish eyes, Rabbi Jason Sobel will connect the dots between the Old and New Testament, helping you see the Bible with clarity as God intended.

Most people—even people of faith—do not understand how the Bible fits together. Too many Christians accept half an inheritance, content to embrace merely the New Testament, while Jewish people may often experience the same by embracing only the Old Testament. But God has an intricate plan and purpose for both the Old and the New.

In Mysteries of the Messiah, Rabbi Jason Sobel reveals the many connections in Scripture hidden in plain sight. Known for his emphatic declaration “but there’s more!” he guides us in seeing the passion and purpose of the Messiah. Mysteries of the Messiah:

  • Uncovers connections between the Old and New Testaments
  • Connects the dots for readers with details about Jesus, the Torah, and biblical characters
  • Written with the unique perspective of a rabbi with an evangelical theological degree

No matter how many times you have read the Bible, Mysteries of the Messiah will bring fresh perspective and insight. God’s Word, written by many people over thousands of years, is not a random selection of people and stories. Rabbi Jason Sobel connects the dots and helps us see with clarity what God intended.

About the Author

Raised in a Jewish home in New Jersey, Rabbi Jason Sobel dedicated much of his life in pursuit of a spiritual connection with God. After years of seeking and studying, he encountered God and found his true destiny as a Jewish follower of Yeshua (Jesus). Suddenly, all the traditions Rabbi Jason grew up with took on new depth and meaning as God connected the ancient wisdom of the Torah with the teachings of the Messiah.

Rabbi Jason received his rabbinic ordination from the UMJC (Union of Messianic Jewish Congregations) in 2005. He has a B.A. in Jewish Studies (Moody) and an M.A. in Intercultural Studies (Southeastern Seminary). He is a sought-after speaker and has made multiple appearances on national television, including the Trinity Broadcasting Network, the Daystar Network, and the Dr. Oz Show. Rabbi Jason is the author of Breakthrough: Living a Life That OverflowsAligning with God's Appointed Times, and Mysteries of the Messiah and he is also the coauthor of New York Times bestseller The Rock, the Road, and the Rabbi with Kathie Lee Gifford.

First, I would like to extend a heartfelt “Thank you” to Rabbi Jason Sobel and his publisher for sending me a copy of "Mysteries of the Messiah" to review for them. I am truly grateful for this generosity. I really appreciate the time, effort and expense it takes to make a reviewer copy available to me.

“Mysteries of the Messiah” by Rabbi Jason Sobel is an amazing book that opens the truth of the Old Testament to New Testament Christians!  It also connects the dots from the Old Testament to the New for Jewish eyes!  This book is an exciting read that has added so much meaning to my Old Testament Bible study.  And it has made the New Testament come to life in beautiful, new ways.

Rabbi Jason Sobel sets the stage for the Messiah promised to the world through the Jewish nation!  This book is so packed with interesting facts that I will keep on my reference shelf for reference and monthly revisiting.  Since there are twelve chapters, I plan to incorporate a reading from it each month.  I could read these chapters over and over again for years and not glean everything packed into its pages!

The opening pages make reference to a loving a mystery.  With that, I was hooked!  That is one of the things I love about the Word of God – that I will never discover all the things hidden within the Scriptures in my lifetime.  I noticed a high concentration of information on numerology at first, which I find fascinating.  Also, I love studying language, so the insights into Hebrew words and letters was truly enlightening.

This is an exciting read that has inspired me to read and study the Old Testament with different eyes.  I highly recommend this book.  Don’t read it at bedtime.  It will totally wake you up and get your mind racing!
