Overview

Everyone knows that Christians believe that Jesus is the Messiah. Is it possible that they have misunderstood the entire concept of the Messiah and his function in God's spiritual economy?

Passages such as Isaiah 53 and Zechariah 13 are viewed as messianic by the Church but has the Church misused them to point to a confused portrait of a man that shouldn't have applied for the position?

Is the New Testament an accurate picture of the events surrounding the times of Jesus or, is it fiction?

As a former Christian of 25 years and son of a Southern Baptist minister, James entered a Messianic Jewish congregation to experience the teachings of the Messianic movement. Convinced something was terribly wrong, he left the movement and started studying to find the truth.

After five years of intensive study and much prayer, James reveals in simple language how Christians have been lead down a path paved with deceit. Starting with the basics of Christianity, James then examines the "Messianic" prophecies that the gospel writers abused to point to Jesus, then the author dispels Christianity and uncovers the truth, beauty and simplicity of the Hebrew Bible.

This book is written with two types of people in mind. First, for the Christian, in order to help them understand what they are dealing with when they try to make sense of Jesus and the New Testament. The second type of person, is the one who would like to learn how to defend their beliefs against the Christian missionary that uses the Hebrew Scriptures to promote their version of the messiah and their misplaced emphasis on him.
