Creation to Completion: A Guide to Life's Journey from the Five Books of Moses


Messianic Jewish Publishers 2006

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


Have you ever wondered if the Pentateuch­the Five Books of Moses­is relevant to your life? Do you think the Law, the Torah, has been relegated to a relic from another era? How do the commandments, given to the Jewish people, contribute to society today? In Creation to Completion, Russell Resnik answers these questions, offering insight into the Torah. He shows that the Creator still desires his creatures to participate in bringing the Creation to completion. After each commentary, he presents a challenging thought "For the Journey."

Praise for the Print Edition

Paul urged Timothy to study the Scriptures (2 Tim. 3:16), advising him to apply its teachings to all aspects of his life. Since there was no New Testament then, this rabbi/apostle was convinced that his disciple would profit from studying the Torah, the Five Books of Moses, and the Old Testament. Given first to the nation of Israel, God intended these teachings to be useful for all people, Jewish or non-Jewish. Now, Rabbi Resnik has written a warm devotional commentary that will help you understand you understand and apply the Law of Moses to your life in a practical way.

—Coach Bill McCartney, Founder and Chairman, Road to Jerusalem, Former President of Promise Keepers

In a time when the knowledge of Scripture is in decline in America and around the world, we desperately need a book like this to encourage people to re-engage with God's Word. Russ Resnik has done a commendable job of joining scholarly insights with warm-hearted application. His extensive interaction with rabbinic sources may be challenging to some but certainly will open up a whole new world to those interested in learning about the Jewish roots of the Messianic faith.

—David Brickner, Executive Director, Jews for Jesus

About Messianic Jewish Publishers

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.
