Arnold G Fruchtenbaum

One of the foremost authorities on the nation of Israel, Dr. Arnold G. Fruchtenbaum (PhD., New York University) is a messianic believer and founder and director of Ariel Ministries , a Texas-based organization dedicated to evangelism and discipleship of Jewish people. Dr. Fruchtenbaum was born in Siberia after his father was released from a communist prison there. Aided by the Israeli underground, the Fruchtenbaum family escaped from behind the Iron Curtain. While living in Germany from 1947 to 1951, Arnold received Orthodox training from his father , who had himself been reared to assume Chasidic (ultra-orthodox Jewish) leadership in Poland, only to later lose most of his family and his faith to the Holocaust. The Fruchtenbaums immigrated to New York, and five years later, at age 13, Arnold came to saving faith. Having lived in Israel for three years, Dr. Fruchtenbaum's intensive study of the role of that nation in God's plan of world redemption has made him a much in-demand speaker at Bible conferences and schools throughout the world. He is the author of numerous books to assist Messianic Jews and all believers in commentaries on Judges and Ruth, The Messianic Jewsih Epistles (Hebrews, James, I & II Peter, and Jude), The Footsteps of the Messiah and Messianic Christology.
