The Story of the Messiah exposes a host of Jewish customs, attitudes, political sects, and institutions during the time of Christ and chronicles the events of His life in Hebrew fashion while harmonizing the accounts of the four Gospel writers. Surely the setting, characters, and plot of this two-thousand-year-old narrative are not unfamiliar, but while snippets of Jesus’ life have warmed the hearts of countless readers and listeners, a complete story of our beloved Savior is rarely gleaned. To remedy this vacuum, the author has embellished a chronicle of the life of Jesus by:
• shining a light on first-century Judaism
• providing historical and factual information pertaining to the Jews in a Greco-Roman world
• including numerous tidbits—both credible and incredible—that were pertinent to the various characters and episodes
• highlighting solutions to the apparent discrepancies proffered by the original authors
Beginning with God’s covenant with Abraham and a brief history of Israel, this rendition of Jesus’ story gathers truth from the prophets of the old standard as well as meaning from Paul and other writers of the New Testament. The final curtain closes on the Day of Pentecost, when God fulfilled His promise of the Holy Spirit.
