This book will open up whole new vistas for many readers of the Bible." Dr. Walter C. Kaiser, Jr. President Emeritus, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary "" "As Christians, we cannot understand our faith unless we understand the Jewish roots from which it springs. For example, all the feasts of Israel were designed by God specifically to teach us fundamental truths about the Lord Jesus and his work and ministry on our behalf.
