About the Author
David H. Stern, born in Los Angeles in 1935, is the great-grandson of two of the city's first twenty Jews. He earned a Ph.D. in economics at Princeton University and was a professor at UCLA. In 1972 he came to faith in Yeshua the Messiah. He then received a Master of Divinity degree at Fuller Theological Seminary, did graduate work at the University of Judaism, and was active in the Messianic Jewish movement. In 1979 the Stern family made aliyah (immigrated to Israel); they now live in Jerusalem. Dr. Stern authored the "Messianic Jewish Manifesto" from which "Restoring the Jewishness of the Gospel" is excerpted. His highly acclaimed English translation, the "Jewish New Testament," restores the New Testament's Jewishness. His "Jewish New Testament Commentary" discusses the many Jewish issues found in the New Testament. His fresh translation, the "Complete Jewish Bible", expresses the unity of the Tanakh ("Old Testament") and the B'rit Hadashah ("New Testament"). This outstanding, scholarly work offers Bible readers a thorough, biblically Jewish version of God's word. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

However the seven feasts of Israel are the prophetic forms of the first then the second coming of Messiah. These festivals and their history aren't the subject of much study by evangelicals. Their meaning is lost on most Christians because of the Jewishness of those festivals which many see as antithetical to "the Church" which is in fact gentilized and has a No-Judaizing allowed mind set. It is taught that returning to the actual form of Judeo-Christianity would be returning to weaker things and that only "the Church" has God's Spirit and teaches Grace. All the New-testament is an addendum to the Old-testament. Jesus said he did not come to destroy the Torah. But modern Church teaching said he fulfilled it "meaning" it could now be run through the shredder. Dr. David Stern addresses that passage and that misconceived teaching.
He, Jesus introduced his topic explaining that He did NOT come to DESTROY the Torah. Proceed with that thought and consider how the four Spring Festivals were fulfilled as prophetic to the events from Jesus' death as the Passover lamb to the giving of the Holy Spirit on Pentecost which commemorated the giving of the Law to Moses by the Holy Spirit. The Spirit given on Pentecost wrote the law on their hearts as prophets foretold. Dr. Stern takes only a few pages to open the case wide of how misconceptions changed the reading of scripture and its very translating.
Jesus is a Jewish King and the Son of David the Jewish King of the tribe of Judah which Jacob prophesied over in Genesis 49:8-12, including "A scepter will never depart from Judah, nor a ruler's staff from between his feet, until Shiloh comes, and the people obey him."
Much of what people write on this book is a passionate appeal to restore the actual pattern of apostolic Christianity while adding there own text not mentioned in Dr. Stern's book. This book inspires one that way and opens eyes in that direction. I noted that too many Christians are quoting John MacArthur saying "All Catholics and Jews are going to Hell". Jews are a FAMILY starting with Judah, son of Jacob, son of Isaac, son of THE Man Abraham. The Family Tribe of Judah existed for centuries in Egypt and after the Exodus the LAW was the given on the 50th day creating the "Jewish Religion" as moderns call it. Jews are a family, not a religion.
Jesus, the Jewish man had Brothers and Sisters whose families would have called Jesus "Uncle." Their children could call him grand-uncle Jesus and their children calling him great-grand-uncle Jesus. Today some Jewish people might still be able to call him their Uncle and that is a family at a kosher picnic to respect.
