#2263 In The Stone and the Glory, Greg Harris takes his readers on a profound journey through the Scriptures as they explore the glorious realities of the stone prophecies.
The journey begins in Genesis with the Patriarchs; it continues with the Israelites wandering toward the Promised Land and ultimately to the house where God Himself has promised, "I will put MY name there forever, and My eyes and heart will be there perpetually" (1 Kings 9:3); it summons the nation to observe Messiah's final Passover that He observed with them before His cross - but not the last Passover He will ever celebrate (Luke 22:14-18) - as God the Father bore repeated witness to His Son in His Holy Word; it continues with the stone prophecies in the book of Acts, and it culminates with Messiah's return in glory.
Along the way, readers will joyfully find themselves identifying with the biblical characters, pondering how they would have responded if they themselves were living in Bible times. Like a skilled tour guide, Dr. Harris brings the Scripture to life in a way that insightfully weds biblical exegesis, Christ-centered theology, and practical application.
This is a book about the magnanimous covenant promises of God, given to His people throughout the ages. For those interested in Jewish evangelism and apologetics, I highly recommend this Bible-rich study. These promises are exact and meant to be understood as they unfold in the text of Scripture. The Stone and the Glory traces these promises to their inevitable conclusion, that Jesus Christ is Son of God and the Savior of the world, who will one day return to claim what is rightfully His and gather His own to Himself. May your heart be greatly encouraged as your eyes are drawn to Christ, the author and perfecter of faith.
