Glenda1 Stars Out Of 5Chart did not match descriptionJuly 11, 2022GlendaThe guide for the numeric value of the 22 letters of the Hebrew alphabet did not match how it was described. I have a tendency not to buy into such detailed "insights", based on things like numeric value for each letter, but I was willing to overlook that prejudice and read it and possibly learn. However when I discovered that the chart in the back of the book did not match the description, I read a little further and just couldn't read any more. This discrepancy made it something I did not want to read.
mStorm4 Stars Out Of 5Great book but...May 14, 2022mStormQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4I loved reading this book and enjoy the way he put together the topics where significance is added to events in the gospels by looking at traditional Jewish teachings. (We need to remember that many of these same teachings were taught in Yeshua's day before they were committed to writing so his followers would have been familiar with them.) I also liked the numerical connections to the Greek, haven't seen that done before. However... as someone who likes to confirm what he's reading is true I found some difficulties. Some of the numerical values simply don't add up to what the author says they are and I couldn't find where a mistake could have been made. The author mentions an instance where part of a verse is left out of the value in order to "make the spiritual connection". But I found many instances where this is done and is NOT mentioned. I give the author the benefit of the doubt that these were honest mistakes but when these type of things are done in a popular book such as this the reader should be made aware so that the author is not accused of being deceptive.

Laverna Podcaster WA5 Stars Out Of 5Mysteries of the Messiah by Rabbi SobelFebruary 10, 2022Laverna Podcaster WAQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I gave this book five stars, because it is an excellent book regarding the mysteries in the Old and New Testaments, that I have always been curious about. Finally, someone, "Rabbi Sobel," answers many of my burning questions. This is a must-read! I read this book over a period of a few days in the quiet evenings of my bible study time and found it difficult to put down! Perhaps you too might experience why I found the book, "Mysteries of The Messiah," very satisfying, informative, and uplifting to read. Stay with it, you won't be disappointed. Laverna Podcaster WA
VeronicaAge: 25-34Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Eye-Opening!August 2, 2021VeronicaAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4This was an interesting book that brought out a lot of Jewish history and tradition to show connections between the Old and New Testaments of the Bible or what's also known as the Jewish Bible with the Christian New Testament. He pointed out where events happened on feast days in the New Testament and what the feasts meant and how they connected. He also talked a lot about numerology and how letters and words have numbers in the Hebrew alphabet and how words and phrases connect to each other based on the same numbers that add up, which I hadn't really heard about before and sometimes it made sense to me and sometimes it felt like a bit of a stretch. Mostly he was pointing out how the Jewish Bible points to Jesus as the Messiah in many different verses, either with certain words they use, the foreshadowing they do that parallels events in the Old and New Testaments or numerology that connects words and phrases to each other. Overall, I found it very interesting and I learned more about the Jewish roots to my faith. I recommend it!
