Product Review: Christ in the Passover

The pamphlet entitled, “Christ in the Passover,” issued by Rose Publishing provides the Old Testament account of the Israelites enslavement in Egypt.  God heard their cries for mercy and responded through Moses.  Moses sought the freedom of the Israelites and demanding their freedom from Pharaoh.  Pharaoh being stubborn refused choosing to continue to increase the mistreatment of the Israelites.  God punished Egypt with ten plagues due to Pharaoh’s harden heart.

During the last plague, God provided His people with a means to escape the destruction – the blood of a perfect lamb in exchange for the first born of the family.  Not only does this pamphlet provides the origins of Passover within the Old Testament but the Passover celebration, Passover symbolism with the anticipation of Jesus’ works, the Passover celebration significance in modern day, and a comparison between Jesus and the Passover lamb.  

The Passover celebration is explained in depth and provides a modified version of the celebration for Christians.  Traditional recipes used in the Passover celebration are included.  I believe this pamphlet provides a fundamental understanding of the Passover.  It would be great for Bible Study, small group, or Sunday School. I would like to try the recipes and share it with my Sunday School class as we discuss the importance of celebrating the Passover.

Product Review: Major Prophets

Are the Old Testament writings of Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, and Daniel still relevant for us today? Rose Publishing has recently released a pamphlet entitled, “Major Prophets” that identifies the importance of these Old Testament writers. These Major Prophets’ writings are significant because of their anticipation of the Messiah, faith in God, their pleas for God’s people to repent. Furthermore, we are given insight to how God responds to His people through their words and actions.

This pamphlet explains the difference between Major and Minor Prophets and identifies that date of ministries, location, audience, and historical content. Another important feature that this pamphlet provides is a list of prophesies and fulfillment of Christ with associate scriptural references. Historical perspectives for each Major Prophet is also provided for us to understand the challenges that these writers faced during tumultuous times.

As a bonus, Rose Publishing offers guidelines for deeper understanding of the books written by these Major Prophets. This pamphlet is a great reference when studying the books of the Major Prophets. My personal recommendation for the use of the pamphlet is as a quick reference guide. This would be great in small Bible Study groups or Adult Sunday School classes. It is a nice layout and easy to follow. I definitely would recommend this pamphlet to leaders or theologians.
