To assist readers in unlocking the contents of Love and the Messianic Age, Vine of David has created this accompanying study guide and commentary that expands on Levertoff’s concepts, explains them, and connects them to the words of Yeshua and the apostles.
Our writers have taken the time to explain Levertoff’s concepts and to bring additional insights from the world of Jewish literature. More than that, they drew out intriguing parallels from the Gospels and Epistles. The final result is more than a simple commentary on another book; it is a plunge into the deepest waters of New Testament mysticism and apostolic theosophy. The short, bite-sized commentaries will also serve well as a type of daily devotional. I hope you will find the commentary on Love and the Messianic Age as inspiring and revolutionary
Paul Philip Levertoff, a Jewish believer from a Chasidic family with a classical, Yeshivah education, summarizes the complex, esoteric teachings of Chasidic Judaism for the purpose of comparison and contrast with apostolic theology. Levertoff reveals a mystical thrust behind the Gospel and unfurls the Messianic concept of love—love for God and love of fellow—bound up with the experience of knowing God and fearing God, relationship to His Torah, and a life characterized by joy, prayer, and repentance. This is a book about experiencing God and attaining the revelation of the Messianic Era in the here and now.
