In the 2014 New York Times bestseller Jesus on Trial, David Limbaugh made a case for the Gospels as hard evidence of the existence of God, drawing on his own spiritual journey from skeptic to believer. Now Limbaugh looks deeper into the scriptures and discovers that Jesus Christ’s very being reveals itself in a close reading of the sacred texts.
The Emmaus Code is a powerful, intimate journey toward an understanding of Christ as man, savior, and son of God.
- Rich in showing the value of the OT
This book is great! I always wished the apostles would just tell us what Jesus had said to them on the road to Emmaus when he shared from the Old Testament, the whole story and all the prophecies he fulfilled. This book fills in those blanks by digging deep into the OT and explaining the holistic picture! I'd dreamed of being able to get a Bible that showed me side by side the OT, NT connections and I was told it was impossible...maybe so, but with this book, set apart, it's accomplished!
I can't say for sure what my favorite part was...I really enjoy the brief sketch of the old testament because I feel I can look at that to see which stories are most important to The Story so I can bring them out to my children. But this book also goes book by book and explains its connections to Jesus and it tells about how the feasts/celebrations and laws were models of Jesus. It's very rich in information. I got it as an audio book because nowadays it takes months to skim out the time to read, but to listen can be accomplished while I drive, yet I'll also want to buy a kindle version and do a Bible study reading this with my family. I'm sure we could take it section by section then read in our Bibles to compare what it says. I look forward to it. Thanks so much David Limbaugh!
By the way--the reader was fine.
