WHILE arguing with the Jewish religious leaders, Jesus said, "You search the Scriptures, because you think that in them you have eternal life; and it is these that bear witness of Me; . . ." In this series of books we will examine the Tanakh in order to see if Jesus' claim has any merit.

In Hesed we will consider if the sacrificial system prescribed in the Torah prefigures Jesus' death on the cross. We will do so by asking such root level questions as:

  • Why did the Jews need to sacrifice lambs at the first Passover in order to be exempt from G-d's judgement? After all, they were the victims in this event of slavery and oppression.
  • Why did the High Priest need to immediately exit G-d's presence once he sprinkled the blood in the Holy of Holies? Didn't the blood atone for his sins on Yom Kippur?
  • et.al.

We will also examine the lives of Joseph, Moses, David, and Daniel. For, there are some noticeable similarities between their lives and Jesus' life. The question is, are these similarities just interesting coincidences, or are they more than that?

Join author Mark Stouffer as he seeks to understand the intended meaning of the Biblical authors.

Hesed is for Jewish people who want to know the truth about Jesus. It is also good for Christians who want to learn about the Tanakh, or Old Testament.
