Are you looking for solid Bible Studies to add to your Messianic Jewish shelf or display in your Christian bookstore? Pastors and everyday Christians are looking to you for help in reaching out to their Jewish friends, family and acquaintances, and that’s what they’ll find in John B. Metzger’s latest book in his series on Jewish Evangelism. This book is addressed mainly to believers who are concerned about their Jewish loved ones.
Metzger brings up a good point: How does the New Covenant bring salvation? While indeed glorious, the Mosaic Law has never been able to save, regenerate, or fill mankind with God’s Holy Spirit, yet God’s plan to do so is interwoven throughout the Old and New Testament Scriptures. So how is God reaching out to Jewish people as well as all mankind?
As Christians, we know that Jesus (Yeshua) initiated the New Covenant at the time of His death. Yet God first promised the New Covenant blessing to Israel in Jeremiah 31:31-34. He is still on track to fulfill His promise to Israel, as the Bible makes clear.
God has promised to gloriously restore Israel as a nation with a new heart, but Israel has tied itself to a millstone called the Mosaic Law and banks everything on Law-keeping and the Abrahamic Covenant, which do not promise salvation. Israel’s Only Hope lies entirely in Jeremiah’s New Covenant.
In this thoroughly researched study, John Metzger covers the following: (1) what the New Covenant is, and what it is not, as developed by the Prophets, (2) how the New Covenant is tied to Jewish people and Messiah’s return, and (3) how the overflowing spiritual blessings of the New Covenant are available for “whosoever believes” in the sacrificial blood of Yeshua (Jesus) in the current Age of Grace.
Detailed appendices include in-demand topics regarding the events of the end times based on Scripture and solid theology.
