This is a lively, entertaining and provocative introduction to the People of Many Names, from early beginnings in the Old Testament as the ‘Children of Promise’ and a ‘Kingdom of Priests’, then as the people of ‘Galut’ (Exile), where they were denigrated as ‘Christ killers’, ‘Dhimmis’ and ‘Conspirators of Zion’.
The Jews are a mystery to most, provoking a whole range of questions. Who are they? How have they survived for so long? Why have they been so feared or hated by so many people for so many reasons? What is their relevance to Christians? This book attempts to give clear answers to these questions and helps the reader to understand the spiritual significance for both Christians and Jews. We view their accomplishments, despite the hostility that surrounded them, including the horrors of the Holocaust, and conclude our story in the New Testament, as the natural branches of God’s olive tree.
This is an easy read but it is not a comfortable book.
‘Steve Maltz writes unashamedly as a Jewish believer in Jesus and for this reason is able to bring some very challenging insights into the Jewish people, both past and present.’
