Book Review: Just finished reading "A Baptist Among the Jews"....and I am disappointed. *I* thought it would be about the author's journey to a deeper understanding of her Hebrew Roots..instead, I got the story of someone who is searching, but not really finding. Or, maybe she was finding, but not recognizing *what* she was finding. It seemed like she was more into "look at me, a Goy among the Jews, and *I'm* accepted because I don't push the Messiah!"........and, y'know, I thought Baptists were more into the "Great Commission" than that. :sigh: The book was more fluff than substance......I wanted more.
Everything in the Torah points to the Messiah. ALL the laws, ALL the prophecies......they all point to the same place. *IF* the author had been sincere, she would have *seen* this - I did when I started really reading the Torah for myself. It's incredible that probably 90% of Yeshua's teachings were directly quoted from Torah - a fact most people miss because of the translation they're using. (The KJV is pretty good at keeping them the same; the CJB - which I prefer - lifts the passages directly from the source, AND footnotes them.) The fact that the author missed this...is telling. :sigh:
Ah, well......Sweet Geek has a violin lesson tonight. I have knitting - hope my mojo is back. Otherwise I'll have to browse the sheet music section....I'd rather have a sock to show for it! :lol:
We have hot water! SOoooooooo nice to be able to take a shower this morning!
Need to find a piano tuner...there are none listed in my local phone book. :sigh:
Off to google....
