Author invites readers to reflect and understand the Jewish people and the multiple layers, dimensions and appointed feasts of the Lord. Romance of the Hebrew Calendar: Breaking the Alabaster Jar by Dr. Raphael Ben Levi sheds light in his comprehensive book (900 pages) on the Jewish Hebraic calendar. From the Israelites in captivity in the wilderness to Passover, to many of the memorialized days that lie within the times and dates within the Jewish calendar, the author helps readers understand the full cultural aspects within a contextual and biblical perspective. Systematically, the author presents a thorough and comprehensive overview of God’s people, their sufferings, and afflictions that offers a vast amount of wisdom from years of study. The Jewish roots that have shaped Christianity unfolds in such a way that reveals the love relationship which the Lord God has with His people and the nations of the World.
This is an amazing read for Christians, helping them understand the significance of their heritage from the Jewish people, but also for the Jewish person, helping them better recognize “Yeshua” (Jesus) as the Messiah. This book comes highly recommended for an instructional syllabus for College level instruction and is highly recommended for the individual and/or group study that seeks to deepen their intimacy and level of understanding of the Jewish calendar as they relate to our modern day biblical celebrations.
