Description

First published in 1929 as a reprint of a 1920 original, this book examines the history of Judaism and specifically how Jewish history and doctrine prophesied and prepared the way for the coming of Jesus, ‘the King of the Jews’. Browne uses a variety of formats, including a semi-theatrical discussion, to review Jewish history through the Jewish scriptures as well as other ancient authorities, such as papyri found at a Jewish settlement at Elephantine in Upper Egypt. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in Jewish history and the Jewish roots of Christianity.
