Unearths hidden spiritual riches in the New Testament. Jones has done a great service.
—From the Foreword by Mark Galli, Managing Editor, Christianity Today
With penetrating beauty, Jones bridges the chasm between our Greco-Romanized view of the Lord's prayer life, to the rhythm and understanding of the Jewish prayer life of Yeshua.
—Rev. Robert Stearns, Executive Director, Eagles' Wings
Timothy Jones has enlightened us all. He combines imaginative story telling with knowledge of the Land and its textual richness. These retellings of gospel stories have color, pathos, and humor.

In 1941, The United States is drawn into World War II. During that same year, Dr. Henry Einspruch publishes his classic book, The Yiddish New Testament, a breakthrough in evangelistic literature for Jewish people. Over the following decades, the publications of Lederer/Messianic Jewish Communications have been widely used to impact thousands of Jewish people with the Good News of Messiah. These books and tracts have been distributed in the Orthodox Jewish community, have been given out to Jews in the former Soviet Union, and have been used by Messianic congregations and Jewish outreaches all over the world. Messianic Jewish Publishers mission is two-pronged: Reaching out to Jewish people with the message of Messiah and teaching the non-Jewish spiritual family about their Jewish roots.
