Identity Theft Review

Identity Theft Description:

Has the Messiah been robbed?

Supernatural visitations. Divine time travel. An age-old cover up. In the middle of it all: One man miraculously transformed by Yeshua.

In an instant, David went from being a skeptical Jewish columnist to a desperate seeker of Truth. The catalyst was an angelic visitation—a moment that marked him forever.

David’s quest spans numerous philosophies and religions, culminating with the Person of Yeshua – Jesus the Messiah. He is plummeted into a vigorous spiritual tug of war. Part of him is intrigued and fascinated by the Messiah, while another is plagued by guilt. How could a Jewish person like himself believe in Yeshua considering all the horrific acts that have been done to his ancestors in His name?

Author Ron Cantor, a gifted story-teller and authority on the Jewish Roots of the New Testament, takes you on an unforgettable tour of history as an angel supernaturally escorts David through the halls of time. You will soon discover that though atrocities have been committed in the name of Yeshua, the greatest crime of all may be against the Messiah Himself… a crime of identity theft.

My Review:  

Ron Cantor strives to share the facts of Jesus Jewish roots in a story book setting.  The use of an angelic guide and what appears to often be a classroom setting and an ability to bring in "live" witnesses gives this book a unique perspective.  Does this reveal truth's that may lead some to "discover" Jesus's Jewishness?  I can't answer that for you, it depends upon what you know.

I am blessed to be in a teaching church that included most of these facts in various sermons, not as a 'bring it to light' moment, but just as a way to better understand the situations.  I had assumed that this was true for most Christians and that those of the Jewish faith already had this information.  It seems that isn't true for most.

I found that the way Cantor wove the facts together to be interesting.  David's struggle to relate the Christian Jesus to his Jewish roots was fascinating.  The book did drag in sections, but that may be attributed to my prior knowledge.  If nothing else, it does give a clearer view of Jesus and his disciples.
