76 Sermons On The Old Testament Given By Jesus

These sermons were received by Dr Samuels over the period 1957 to 1966. When I first found these, I was largely disinterested, as I had never been a student of the Old Testament. Now I find each is interesting of itself, but what is far more interesting, is the overall concept that Jesus conveys in taking us on this journey through the Old Testament. It is thus useful to read these in sequence. It becomes clear how the Jewish faith evolved, why times were ripe for a Messiah, and how Christianity adopted pagan rites and beliefs so as to make the Christian doctrines more attactive to pagans - their primary target market. It also takes one though the spiritual journey that Jesus himself took, in identifying the promise of the Divine Love, centuries before he was born.
