Jesus of Israel: Finding Christ in the Old Testament By Richard Veras Softcover, 142 pp.
Not only was Jesus a Jew, His coming was foreshadowed in stories from Genesis to the prophets. Fr. Richard Veras invites us to enter a more intimate relationship with Jesus Christ through the doors of familiar and not-so-familiar incidents in the Old Testament.
Ever wonder, for example, why God asked Abraham to sacrifice Issac? Even more, why Abraham was willing to do it? Puzzled as to why there are two creation accounts in Genesis? What's the problem with being a Samaritan? And what does any of this has to do with Jesus and our life in him? The author explores these and other issues with one goal in mind: to "aid the reader to come to a deeper certainty about Jesus Christ."
