Conventional wisdom states that the Hebrew Scriptures only hint that there are persons of Yahveh. This book shows that Moses and other Bible writers wrote strikingly and often, both about the Trinity and the deity of the Messiah. The Old Testament is as explicit about the Trinity and the deity of the Messiah as is the New Testament. The reader of this book will come to know the Trinitarianism in the Hebrew Scriptures that Yahvists knew. The reader of this book will come to read the Bible the same way the inspired writers intended it to be read-as Trinitarian

The fact is now indisputable that the Jews in Jesus' day believed in the Triune God. The proof was always there in the Bible. Many theologians even suspected it. But it took Yoel Natan to dig it out and prove it beyond dispute.
These two volumes are not just tomes that will collect dust. These are going to be textbooks in a thousand seminaries that are interested in evangelism among the Jews, the Mormons, Jehovah's Witnesses and even Muslims.
The volumes are priceless and indispensable. The world has been waiting for these volumes for two thousand years and didn't know it--just as the world waited for electric light and didn't know it.
Yoel Natan has brought to light the fact that our Hebrew forebears understood and worshipped the Holy Trinity as clearly as the writers of the Apostles' Creed and almost as clearly as the authors of the Nicene.
The Jewish Trinity and The Jewish Trinity Sourcebook are the Rosetta Stone to the Old Testament. All the evidence has been there staring us in the face for two millennia. Perhaps it is because this information is so desperately needed in our times that it has taken until now to search it out.
Here we have the truth clearly stated: denial of the Trinity crept into the translations and transcriptions of the texts. The words which professed the Trinity in the Old Testament were "simplified" because the belief in the Trinity was not there.
I find I need to use "The Jewish Trinity" and the "Sourcebook" together. If I start reading "Isaiah" from the "Sourcebook," I want to turn back to "The Jewish Trinity" to fully understand the implications.
I predict that in years to come, every seminary worth the name Christian will have a course exploring these books.

His book shows that the references to Christ in the Old Testament are legion. He points out that it is no surprise that the apostles in Jesus' day were so willing to accept Jesus as the Son of God. They were used to thinking about plural persons from reading their Scriptures. Yoel Natan shows that the Greek and Hebrew words used in the Old Testament Scriptures at Jesus' time clearly testify about the Father, Son and Spirit--three persons, one God.
Be sure to visit Yoel Natan's website. It gives more information on his books: The Jewish Trinity, The Jewish Trinity Sourcebook, and Moon-o-theism.
Yoel Natan's Web site lists Yoel's other books: "The Jewish Trinity Sourcebook: Trinitarian Readings from the Old Testament," and "Moon-o-theism" book on Mideast Moon god religions. There is also a link to an EZBoard.com discussion group.
To put it more bluntly, this book seems like a debate ender. Those who do not see the Trinity in the Bible after reading this book are in state of denial. Snap out of it!
