Has the Messiah been robbed?
Supernatural visitations. Divine time travel. An age-old cover up.
In the middle of it all: One man miraculously transformed by Yeshua.
In an instant, David went from being a skeptical Jewish columnist to a desperate seeker of Truth. The catalyst was an angelic visitationa moment that marked him forever.
Davids quest spans numerous philosophies and religions, culminating with the Person of Yeshua Jesus the Messiah. He is plummeted into a vigorous spiritual tug of war. Part of him is intrigued and fascinated by the Messiah, while another is plagued by guilt. How could a Jewish person like himself believe in Yeshua considering all the horrific acts that have been done to his ancestors in His name?
Author Ron Cantor, a gifted story-teller and authority on the Jewish Roots of the New Testament, takes you on an unforgettable tour of history as an angel supernaturally escorts David through the halls of time. You will soon discover that though atrocities have been committed in the name of Yeshua, the greatest crime of all may be against the Messiah Himself… a crime of identity theft.
"There are some of us gentiles who love Jesus, love Jews, love Jesus as a Jew and realize we were drawn into an Hebraic faith when we became Christians, and we have long hoped for better literature to serve our cause. Much that is written about Jesus as a Jew is a scolding distribution of blame rather than an ennobling call to truth. Ron Cantor has changed this. He uses fiction, humor, a bit of fantasy and a time traveler's imagination to tell us a tale that ought to be told. He makes us know Jesus anew. I am grateful, and I hope he is forerunner of a new tribe on the rise."

richard r blakeBridgman, MIAge: Over 65Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5A Meaningful Look into Jewish RootsMay 26, 2013richard r blakeBridgman, MIAge: Over 65Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Ron Cantor has chosen a unique approach to engage the reader in a meaningful look into the background and history of the Jewish people and their roots. In his book "Identity Theft" Ron uses fiction as a platform to present a fresh look into history to bring to light an age old cover up. He skillfully weaves the history of the Jewish people and the brutalities and carnage against them in the name of Christ the Messiah.
An angelic guide, Ariel, time travel, modern technology, and the Jewish scriptures help Cantor's protagonist, David Lebowitz, a young Jewish journalist move from his skepticism to become a serious seeker of the truth of Yeshua.
Careful endnotes clearly detail scholarly comparisons, website references, and other suggested resources for study. These notes also reflect and establish Ron Cantor's credibility and credentials as Messianic Jewish Communicator, and educator.
Cantor's a passion to mentor young leaders, to share the Jewish roots message, and to spread the good news of the gospel of Yeshua is apparent throughout his writing. The dramatic scenes from the crucifixion, the Crusades, and from Hitler's treatment of the Jews in World War II combined with the commanding use of dialog lend themselves to adaptation for an impressive movie production.
Informative, entertaining, and memorable - a great read.
A complimentary copy of this book was provided for review purposes. The opinions expressed are my own.
Mary A. Hubinsky5 Stars Out Of 5clearly explains the Jewish roots of ChristianityMay 10, 2013Mary A. HubinskyQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This was a wonderful book. It is great for Christians to understand our Jewish brethren and it works also to help Jewish people see how Jewish the Christian faith really is by replacing "Christianese" in the translations with the more Israelite terms of the early Jewish church of Christ.
I highly recommend for those seeking to reach out to the Jewish people with the Love of Christ.
