To Christians, Jesus of Nazareth is the pivotal figure in human history. The entire Bible is about Him. Passages in the Old Testament forecast His life. In some Scriptures, references to Jesus are clear. In others, biblical writers relied on symbolism to foretell Jesuss time on earth. In his book Decoding Bible Messages, author John A. Mapp Jr. shines a laser on the Old Testament. Mapp provides numerous examples to bring Jesus out of the symbolism used by Old Testament writers. Passages that, at first look, seemed to have nothing to do with Jesus take on new meaning. For example, Mapp explains how the manner in which the Passover lamb was slaughtered is a symbolic portrayal of Jesuss crucifixion. Through Mapps research, youll discover the Old Testament is truly a hologram of Jesus Christ. Decoding Bible Messages provides a new perspective on the Old Testament. Learn to see Jesus on every page, and in the process, gain a new appreciation of the inspired nature of the whole Bible, plus a deeper revelation of the sovereign hand of God.

A New York Times Bestseller! "Who do you say that I am?" Uttered by Jesus Christ, this profound question has presented an age-old challenge to believers, skeptics, scholars, and rulers. In attempting to answer this question, The True Jesus goes straight to the unimpeachable source: the books of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. Only in the Gospels, says #1 New York Times bestselling author David Limbaugh, do we come face-to-face with the Son of God, Whose sublime teachings, miraculous actions, and divine essence leap off every page and into our hearts. In this book, Limbaugh combines the four Gospel stories into a unified account (though not, he humbly admits, a perfect harmony) and guides readers on a faith journey through the Four Evangelists' testimonies of the life of Jesus Christ. Along the way, Limbaugh shares his insights on Jesus' words and deeds as well as His unique nature as fully human and fully divine. In The True Jesus, you will learn: - Why even the apostles failed to completely understand Jesus' true identity and mission until after His crucifixion - The real basis for the rejection of Jesus' message by skeptics in His hometown and elsewhere - The historical events preceding Jesus' birth that providentially paved the way for Christianity - How Jesus' message utterly contradicted modern attempts to portray Him as being non-judgmental Limbaugh's passion for the Gospels infuses the pages of The True Jesus, which is both a primer for new Bible readers and an outstanding guide to the Gospels for long-time believers. Who really is the true Jesus? Open this book and begin your odyssey toward the answer.
This is a book for everyone--new Christians as well as old, and also for those seeking answers as to whether of not the Bible is trustworthy.

Jesus on Every Page of the Old Testament? "But Jesus didn't come along until the New Testament," someone says, "What's He doing in the Old?" In his new book, 101 Portraits of Jesus in the Hebrew Scriptures, author Bob Beasley, a graduate of Westminster Theological Seminary, seeks to answer that question in many more than 101 ways. In fact, even though the Old Testament -- the Hebrew Scriptures -- was written 2,000 to 500 years prior to Jesus' earthly ministry, some say the Lord may be found on its every page. Just as a great novel or movie will provide early warnings of things to come later on in the book or screen, the Old Testament is full of types, foreshadowings, specific prophesies, mighty works, and pre-incarnate appearances of the Savior. He is prefigured by men like Adam, Noah, Joseph, Moses, and David. Jesus is foreshadowed by furniture (yes, furniture), rocks, food, a snake, doorways, trees, colors, animals--in many, many ways. He appears as smoke and fire and as the mysterious Angel of the Lord. All of this hundreds of years before born to Mary in Bethlehem. On the road to Emmaus following His resurrection, Jesus spoke with some of His followers. Luke tells us; And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he explained to them what was said in all the [Hebrew] Scriptures concerning himself (Luke 24:27). In a compact and readable 101 chapters surveying Genesis to Malachi, Beasley merely scratches the surface of the wonderful truths of Jesus in the Old Testament, sure to deepen anyone's understanding of and love for the entire Bible. This is a book for everyone--new Christians as well as old, and also for those seeking answers as to whether of not the Bible is trustworthy. The impact of hundreds of foreshadowings of Jesus is truly powerful. 101 Portraits will open the Scriptures for you as never before.
