Far from a study of kosher dietary laws, this book is an unprecedented journey toward the true identity of the Divine Messiah-the one previously considered 'unkosher' and 'unacceptable' by Jewish people.
According to Scripture and Jewish sources, was the promised Messiah of Israel to be divine or a mere human? What are the attributes of the Messiah in his relationship to Yahweh and what is the Messiah's authority and dominion? What is an acceptable Jewish framework for discussion of the nature of the Messiah within Judaism? Rabbi Itzhak Shapira was in search of the answers to these questions and shares his findings in The Return of the Kosher Pig. This book will surprise and challenge you with the compelling words of Jewish sages and rabbis over the last 2,000 years, many in English for the first time.
The Return of the Kosher Pig features:
Glossary of over 300 terms that will enable readers to dive deeper into Hebraic/biblical thought
Directory of all major rabbinical works on the issue of Messiah in the last 2,000 years
Index of all references from the Torah, Prophets, Writings, New Testament, and the Talmud
Easy-to-read format that provides an excellent study tool for students of scripture
Full bibliography with numerous sources that are 'hidden' to many English speakers on the nature of the Messiah
