From the Preface http://www.biblicalr…nfo/page2G.html
THIS treatise, Messiah: His Historical Appearance, is the fifth book of the Messianic Series, which, when completed, will contain seven volumes. The four preceding works areThe God of Israel, Messiah: His Nature and Person, Messiah: His Redemptive Career, and Messiah: His First Coming Scheduled. The last two are Messiah: His Second Coming Imminent and Messiah: His Final Call to Israel.
In this the fifth book of the Series we come to grips with the greatest question that has ever engaged the attention of man—that which pertains to Jesus of Nazareth, a historical personage concerning whom multiplied millions of people, both in the past and at the present time, have been convinced by positive evidence that He was a historical person (as the late Dr. Stephen S. Wise declared), that He was what He claimed to be, and what the four evangelists—Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John—say that He was.
The Apostle John declared, in Revelation 19:11, that “the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.” According to this statement, all revelation revolves around Him, His life, and His labors. Jesus of Nazareth, speaking figuratively, is the leading actor in the great drama of life as presented in the Old and New Testament Scriptures.
But in modern times a section of the world of scholarship imbued with and motivated by the spirit of scientific investigation, apart from divine revelation, calls in question, more or less, the authority of the Scriptures and their message. Rationalism has largely captured the thinking of the man of the twentieth century and is dominating it. I hasten to affirm, however, that there are many scholars who have refused to bow to the dictates of this modern god of rationalism, skepticism, and doubt.
This Baal of modernism at whose shrine very many scholars bow and worship is dictating the life and thinking of multitudes in the educational world, as well as in the religious sphere. I am constrained, therefore, to begin the investigation concerning the historical Jesus by noting very briefly some general principles of scientific research and some prophecies regarding the Almighty’s revelation to Israel and to the world.
This treatise in the unabridged edition naturally falls into four sections—Book One: some general principles taught by scientific observation, practical experience, logical thinking, and open-mindedness to see and to accept truth wherever found—this part of the treatise prepares the reader for an impartial and candid examination of the truths, evidence, and facts presented; Book Two: some dominant prophecies taught by the Eternal Creator in His revelation to Israel, according to Moses, the Prophets, and the writers of the New Testament—this section, which draws its material largely from the messages of Moses and the Prophets, paves the way for the reader’s understanding of the testimony presented by the Apostle Matthew, an associate of Jesus and an eyewitness of the things concerning which he has written; Book Three: the inspired testimony of the Apostle Matthew, an eyewitness—with explanatory notes; Book Four: the necessity of the Mosaic doctrine of blood atonement examined scripturally and philosophically.
A Word About The Author http://www.biblicalresearch.info/
He continually referred to the Golden Rule of Interpretation, quoted below.
“By following this rule we avoid the many pitfalls of attempting to read into the text something that is not there, and of failing to see what is actually expressed in the Sacred Word,” he would explain to his Bible classes. “Though there are those who do not realize the value of the study of prophecy, let me call attention to the fact that the Lord gave us the prophetic portions of His Word for our enlightenment and enrichment. ‘Every scripture [is*] inspired of God, is also profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for instruction which is in righteousness: that the man of God may be complete, furnished completely unto every good work’ (2 Tim. 3:16,17). Without the proper knowledge of the prophetic Word no one can be adequately fitted or completed unto all the good works which God desires of His children.”
