WHAT DOES THE OLD TESTAMENT REALLY SAY?
by Steve Maltz
The Hebrew Scriptures, the Old Testament, has had a bit of a battering of late. Is it just the prelude to the New Testament? Has it served its purpose, now that we have a “better covenant”? Or do we ignore it at our peril? With his customary humour, pacey style and shrewd insights, Steve Maltz reveals a goldmine of discovery and delights as the Old Testament is laid bare like never before. You will discover: Recurring themes that build up a wonderful picture of God. The actions and teachings of the Biblical prophets in context. The benefits of viewing the Scriptures hebraically. New insights revealed by the One New Man Bible translation
Here is a talk given by Steve Maltz at Emmanuel CHurch, Llandudno in November 2012. It's based on his book and a passionate attack on the evils of replacement theology and a defence of the character of God in His dealings with His people.
The following "Letter to an Anti-Zionist Friend" is held by some to be an actual letter from Dr. King to an acquaintance, others say it is a compilation of his statements. ". . . You declare, my friend, that you do not hate the Jews, you are merely 'anti-Zionist.' And I say, let the truth ring forth from the high mountain tops, let it echo through the valleys of God's green earth: When people criticize Zionism, they mean Jews--this is God's own truth. "Anti-semitism, the hatred of the Jewish people, has been and remains a blot on the soul of mankind. In this we are in full agreement. So know also this: anti-Zionist is inherently antisemitic, and ever will be so. "Why is this? You know that Zionism is nothing less than the dream and ideal of the Jewish people returning to live in their own land.
I specialise in books that don't just tickle the mind but stir the heart and provoke action. I am first and foremost a writer. Not being a trained theologian, scientist, philosopher or historian, I am able to interpret the works of cleverer people than myself and present an informative and entertaining narrative for the ordinary person, such as you and I. That is my gift and I thank God for bringing it all together and blessing me with it.

Throughout centuries, judenhass has found expression in political, religious and social contexts spanning continents and cultures without discernible cause or correlation. 'The Great Rage' is the first installment in this five-part series, which assesses these historical expressions of Jew-hatred and grapples with the modern progression of this international rage in present-day.
