Jesus was a Jew. The writers of Scripture were Jews. The early church emerged in a Jewish environment. So why the tension between Jews and Christians, and why have so few Jews come to believe in the Messiah?
In The Fig Tree Blossoms, Paul Liberman uncovers the Jewish roots of the Christian faith and helps Gentile believers come to a deeper understanding of the historic issues that have fed Jewish suspicion of Christians and Christian prejudice toward Jews.
But in these last days, Liberman writes, God is using the emerging Messianic movement to bring many Jews into His kingdom and to awaken Gentile Christians to their Jewish faith heritage.
Instead of casting blame or assigning guilt, Liberman calls Gentile Christians to embrace their Messianic brothers’ and sisters’ Jewish expressions of faith in much the same way the Apostle Paul encouraged his fellow Jews to embrace Gentile believers in the first century.
Discover how the “fig tree”—the biblical symbol for the Jewish people—is blossoming, and how many are enjoying its fruit.
Paul Liberman was instrumental in founding and leading Messianic congregations in Washington, D.C., San Diego and in Israel. For five years, he served as the Executive Director of the International Messianic Jewish Alliance.
Is belief in the resurrection of Yeshua (the Hebrew name of Jesus) a matter of faith, or is there historical evidence to support its occurrence? Even if there is compelling evidence, one question remains—how did this seemingly impossible event take place? We struggle to wrap our minds around this, and justifiably so. We are faced with a daunting paradox: can a historic event be validated despite its miraculous nature?
Attorney and former atheist Jim Jacob sought well-grounded answers to these questions and many others. He has researched and compiled evidence to answer such important questions as:
As he has done throughout his nearly 40-year legal career, Jacob presents clear evidence that answers these questions and confronts head-on the rebuttal arguments as well.
When an individual is requested to serve on a jury, he or she is asked to set aside any biases and serve impartially as a juror, giving both sides a fair trial. If you desire to objectively assess the evidence and determine whether there is any validity to the claims of the followers of Yeshua, then this booklet is for you.
This powerful book reveals the latest scientific, mathematical, historical, and prophetic proofs, about what is HAPPENING TODAY in America and Israel and making today’s headlines! Yet the prophecies were written over 2,000 years ago!

Since Yeshua (Jesus) was Jewish, why don’t more of today’s rabbis believe He is the Messiah? What REALLY happens when we die?
Why does a “good” God allow so much suffering?
Why did 6 million Jews and 6 million gentiles have to die in the holocaust?
And much, much more…
Since many people grow up Jewish and then get saved into what is now a mostly Christianized version of Messianic Judaism, their well-meaning Christian friends and family often tell them that they are no longer Jewish. They are also then educated into Christianity, told they don’t need to celebrate the “Jewish” holidays anymore, and just don’t know how to stay Jewish and believe In Yeshua (Jesus). That is why I, now a Messianic Jewish Rabbi wrote this booklet: “Ok Lord… Now What?” It guides the new believer onto the path of maintaining their Jewishness, while fulfilling their rich destiny as a believer.
While it was written from a Jew to Jews, the Christian reader will gain wonderful insights into the foundations of their own faith, and why things are done as they are. It is a totally free read, so I hope you enjoy it.
