In Jesus of Israel Fr. Richard Veras opens up the Word of God in a manner that inspires faith and a deeper understanding of Jesus Christ. He answers questions about the coming of Jesus who was long anticipated by his chosen people, the Israelites

In Jesus of Israel Fr. He answers questions about the coming of Jesus who was long anticipated by his chosen people, the Israelites. By exploring questions such as why God asked Abraham to sacrifice Isaac, why Isaac cooperated, and other perplexing Old Testament stories, the reader comes to a better understanding of Jesus' story as foreshadowed in stories from the book of Genesis through the prophets.

Christ Promised The God of Israel is, most fundamentally, him who dwells in the bush (Deuteronomy 33:16)

Old Testament saints were not simply tiles in a mosaic, witnessing, unwittingly, to a gospel pattern of which they were ignorant. They too looked forward to the fulfillment of these patterns. Jesus is not merely patterned and promised in the Old Testament; he is present. This is vital since the essential character of neither God nor faith has changed from the first covenant to the new. God has always worked in the Trinitarian pattern: from the Father, through the Son, by the Spirit. The God of Israel is, most fundamentally, him who dwells in the bush (Deuteronomy 33:16). And who is he? He is the angel of the Lord who is himself the Lord (Exodus 3:2, 6, 14).

Jesus did not come from nowhere! He was long awaited by a people who were educated…to expect God's presence in the messiness of their own history.—From the Introduction Not only was Jesus a Jew, his coming was foreshadowed in stories from Genesis to the prophets. Father Richard Veras invites us to enter a more intimate relationship with Jesus Christ through the doors of familiar and not-so-familiar incidents in the Old Testament. Ever wonder, for example, why God asked Abraham to sacrifice Isaac? Even more, why Abraham was willing to do it? Puzzled as to why there are two creation accounts in Genesis? What's the problem with being a Samaritan? And what does any of this have to do with Jesus and our life in him? The author explores these and other issues with one goal in mind: to "aid the reader to come to a deeper certainty about Jesus Christ." "This book makes the Word of God accessible to the young and, in fact, to anyone who wishes to look at the Bible with the eyes of a faith in touch with the grace of the Jewish people. The insights are quite valuable, but the real attractiveness of the book is the faith that it inspires through a simple, straightforward and imaginative reading of the Sacred Text." —Father Francis Martin, John Paul II Cultural Center, Washington, D.C.

I purchased this book because I thought it would be a survey of prefigurements of Jesus in the Old Testament. While it certainly does talk about some of the types of Christ in the Old Testament (as found in Adam, Abraham, Isaac, Joseph, Moses, David, Elijah, and Elisha who get the most treatment), I found this to be much more useful for contemplation rather than as a theological or historical text (it is accessible to any interested reader in high school or older). The two or three reflection questions at the end of each chapter emphasize application to the reader's life today. Since it was not what I expected, I was tempted to put it down more than once early on. I'm glad I did not. Some of the insights the author provides are thought provoking and the typology he proposes is not always obvious but it is often profound (e.g., the baker and cupbearer in the Joseph story in light of Jesus on the cross and Elijah and Elisha as Christ and the disciples at the Ascension). Along the way, a short but comprehensive overview of the history of the Chosen People is provided. Short chapters allow this book to be dipped into when one has a few minutes here or there, but one could spend hours contemplating the depths of Scripture as presented here.

I am an avid learner of both the New Testament and the Old Testament. Unfortunately, in attempting to get help interpreting and learning the content of the Bible, I often purchase books that are written at such an intellectual level that I feel that I need to get a doctorate to understand. This is not the case with Fr. Veras' book. I found it to be intellectual enough to not insult my own brain power, but written so understandably that that my knowledge and understanding of Jesus through the New Testament has me wanting to learn as much as I can. Normally, I use the term "page turner" in reference to fiction that is excellent. I can honestly say that Fr. Veras "Finding Christ in the Old Testament" is a page turner. The Bible comes alive as I read!
The book, "Jesus of Israel: Finding Christ in the Old Testament" is an excellent source of Scriptural knowledge and one which leads the reader to a new and deeper knowledge of the place of Jesus throughout the entire Bible. The insights into both the Old Testament and the New are profound and very fulfilling. I am using the book as a text for two classes on Scripture -- classes composed of mature adults who are fascinated by the insights provided. At first, they looked questioningly at what is said, for example, in Chapter 2 about creation, the statement that there are two creation accounts in Genesis 1:1 -- 2:25, and and how these two accounts balance each other. But through discussion and comparison of the passages involved, one can see the growth in their understanding and acceptance of the passages, and then see their realization that this course is truly enriching their understanding and love of Scripture. It is, of course, of special enrichment to have a Bible at hand as we study the textbook and to check out against the Biblical text what the author, Father Richard Veras, is saying. I recommend very this book very highly for anyone who wants to understand Scripture -- and particularly the place of Jesus in Scripture -- in greater depth.
