The Messianic Seal of the Jerusalem Church By Reuven Schmalz and Raymond Robert Fischer
The Messianic Seal of the Jerusalem church, Lost to the Jewish people since 135 CE. Buried for millennia by the Church! Key to understanding the Dead Sea Scrolls!
Resurrected after nearly 2,000 years of silence, from an ancient grotto adjacent to the very first Christian Church on Mount Zion!
Scribed and drawn on ceremonial artifacts most likely used by Pastor James the Just, the brother of Jesus, and the Twelve Apostles!
The ancient three-part symbol: Menorah, Star of David, and Fish, once again proclaims to the world the pervasive Jewishness of Jesus Christ and the decidedly Jewish foundation and roots of the Church founded in His name.
The Messianic Seal of the Jerusalem Chruch strikes at the very roots of anti-Semitism while proclaiming a compelling message that breaks down barriers and restores unity: Jew with Jew, and Jew with Gentile.
In their monumental work, Reuven Schmalz presents a fascinating and exciting historical account leading up to the founding of the First Century Jerusalem Church on Mount Zion until its final disappearance in the fourth century. Bob Fischer (who also wrote The Ways of the Way) then presents a compelling biblical interpretation on the meaning of the ancient three-part symbol and its contemporary relevance to the Church and the world beyond.
A must-read for all Christians!
