Many people don’t understand how each individual book of the Bible—Old Testament and New Testament—cohesively fits together to communicate the overarching message of the Messiah. The late theologian B.B. Warfield said the Old Testament is filled with prophets that predict him, patterns that preview him, and promises that anticipate him. Rabbi Jason Sobel, raised in a Jewish home in New Jersey but now a follower of Yeshua, wants to show the many connections in Scripture that he says are hidden in plain sight.
Bible Gateway interviewed Rabbi Jason Sobel (@RabbiJasonSobel) about his book and video lesson, Mysteries of the Messiah: Unveiling Divine Connections from Genesis to Today (Thomas Nelson, 2021).
