Yeshua: The Life of Messiah From a Messianic Jewish Perspective
The Abridged Version of the 4 Volume Set
by Dr. Arnold Fruchtenbaum
Israel’s Messianic King
During His ministry to the Jewish people, Yeshua (Jesus) journeyed throughout the land promised to the Jewish patriarchs, presenting Himself to the Jews as their Messiah. He was a Jew living in a Jewish land among the Jewish people. Yet, much of the knowledge of this Jewish society, its culture and traditions has grown dim with the passage of time. In this work, Dr. Arnold G. Fruchtenbaum shines a bright light on the life of Yeshua and the land of Israel during the Second Temple period, interpreting the Gospels from a Messianic Jewish perspective. To achieve this, Dr. Fruchtenbaum had done original research in the Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek source texts, and has also drawn on the works of other scholars and the writings of ancient rabbis.
It has taken about four decades of research and work for the account of the life and ministry of Yeshua the Messiah to come into its present form, published by Ariel Ministries in four volumes and this, the abridged version. The abridgment contains essentially the same material as the multi-volume set, but excludes the source texts for Dr. Fruchtenbaum’s teaching. Ariel’s Harmony of the Gospels provides the framework for his exegesis.
Dr. Arnold G. Fruchtenbaum holds a B.A. degree from Cedarville University in Hebrew and Hellenistics, a Th.M. degree in Hebrew and Old Testament Studies from Dallas Theological Seminary, and received his Ph.D. from New York University with the completion of his dissertation, Israelology: The Missing Link in Systematic Theology. He is the founding director of Ariel Ministries and a much respected biblical authority in evangelical and messianic circles.
