The Church itself is Jewish insofar as its roots are, built off a Jewish covenant and a Jewish book, with a Jewish Lord, and Jewish apostles.
Also contained in this book are all the prophecies of the Jewish messiah, and how Christ fulfilled them all. In fact, it details how some Jewish Scholars studying Zechariah determined there would be two Messiahs, a suffering servant and then later a conquering king. Of course, Catholic's rather believe it is one Messiah that comes twice!
Many examples could be given of the wonderful exposition contained in this book, but I will suffice with two:
1. In Chapter two of this book, the author talks about the Davidic Kingdom. In the Davidic Kingdom the two most important people in the kingdom other than the King himself, were the Queen Mother and The Royal Steward, or Prime Minister. The Queen Mother symbolized the King's rightful right to rule, and would literally sit on a throne to his right and rule with him. The royal steward or prime minister was the one who ruled in the King's Place, as a prime minister (Much like how Joseph was to Pharoah in Egypt), he had the keys to the kingdom and was like a father to the people of the nation.
Christ is the heir of the Davidic Kingdom. He is the rightful heir of King David, he sits on the throne of David as Christ the King. Likewise, the two most important people in his kingdom are his Queen Mother, who rules with him at the right hand, and his Prime Minister who has the Keys to the kingdom, the Pope.
2. In the Chapter on the Passover and the Mass, the author shows how they relate, and how the Eucharist Completes the Mass. In the Passover the Lamb provided the escape from Sin by it's death, but the participants actually made themselves one with the sacrifice by consuming it. Likewise, Christ instituted the Eucharist(During a Passover meal), and offered himself on the cross as our Passover lamb, which he then perpetuates through the Eucharist. We then become one with this sacrifice by consuming him in the Eucharist.
Likewise, the Manna in the wilderness was a type of the Eucharist, it even looked just like the host, it provided nourishment for the Israelites for the journey through the wilderness, likewise for our journey in the wilderness. The Manna, and Priestly Rod of Aaron, and Copy of the word of the Law, all types of Christ, were placed in the Ark of the Covenant, a type of Mary who is the ark of the new covenant.
This book is an absolutely fantastic book on Catholic Christianity, showing it's Jewish roots and relation. Absolute essential for those wanting to understand Catholic roots and it's Jewish connection.

I did not realize that the Catholic Church shared so much history with the Jews aside from a few things!
It was very informative!
