Jesus made bold claims during his lifetime on Earth. Was He indeed the Son of God, the Messiah the Jews were expecting for ages? Did indeed the Scriptures point to Him? Or were these mere lies? Kendall T. Shoulders in the remarkably titled Jesus (Yeshua) is a Worm…and a Snake Too, Among Other Things takes his audience across the Old Testament stories and prophecies with two animals pointing at Jesus Christ and His death and resurrection.
First, the special Tola worm appearing not only in Psalm 22, but in numerous other places being the source of the color scarlet. Second the snake, the one Moses had to lift high so that the people of Israel could look at it and be healed, and the way Jesus Christ was hung on a cross to become the life bearing serpent for us. Wonderful, how the biblical prophecies and characters tell much more than a superficial reading would reveal.
Along this journey through the Bible you’ll learn more about God’s timing, the meanings of colors, and the precise way the curse Satan is given after seducing Adam and Eve is executed. Hopefully in the end you’ll have a clear understanding of who Jesus Christ is, and you don’t have to wait for another messiah to deliver you from sin.
