Drinking at the Sources (Kindle Edition)


Dr Jacques Doukhan, a Jewish believer in Yeshua as the Messiah and a scholar of Jewish heritage, questions the schism between Israel and the Christian church, which is rooted in the most profound reality in history. 

When Jesus said that He was the Messiah, was His contention not to have consequences in a land occupied by Roman legions since 66 B.C.? In a land where leaders of resistance movements had regularly been proclaimed king and messiah of Israel by their troops? Alas, messianic adventures were not uncommon in those times! Many of them ended in atrocious massacres—from Judas the Galilean, who preached revolt against Rome when Jesus was a child, to Bar-Kokhba.

Because Israel lived constantly under the threat of extermination by pagan, barbarian, and imperial Rome, were not the men responsible for her well-being and destiny to be extremely concerned by the rising tide of another messianic movement? And especially since this latest manifestation was led by a self-proclaimed Christ with an overpowering personality? The word from Caiaphas that it was to their advantage that one man should die to save the nation must be understood in the light of the stark reality of Roman repression, which was responsible for more than 600,000 crucified victims.

Drinking at the Sources separates historical fact from fiction in an attempt to discover what was responsible for the hatred between early Christians and Jews that carries on to this day. It seeks to identify, from each side’s viewpoint, the decisive factors and arguments both sides have used in constructing seemingly insurmountable walls.

The Three Sons of Abraham:

Interfaith Encounters Between Judaism, Christianity and Islam

 (Library of Modern Religion)



Christianity, Judaism and Islam have sometimes been more closely identified not for what they offer to save the world but for what they bring to destabilize it. It is one of the depressing paradoxes of religion, supposedly a force for good, that it is all too frequently the occasion for conflict instead of peace, generosity and better treatment of one's neighbor. The contributors to this volume start from the premise that there is a price to be paid by the 'sons of Abraham': whether Jews, Muslims or Christians. And that is the cost of learning how to be brothers through mutual and attentive engagement. Mature interfaith discussion offers respect for a shared heritage while also recognizing points of distinctiveness. This book explores what articulating such regardful difference, as well as commonality, might mean for the future of faith relations. Including provocative reflections by Elie Wiesel, Irving Greenberg, Hans Küng and others, the book makes a vital contribution to dialogue. In its searching analysis of issues of peace, justice, hope and forgiveness, it will engage all students and scholars of interfaith studies.

Secrets of Revelation:
The Apocalypse Through Hebrew Eyes

Ethereal worship, scary beasts, ominous trumpets, terrible plagues, and ultimate paradise. The book of Revelation is a powerful tapestry woven from Old Testament imagery, such as the plagues of Egypt and the confrontation on Mount Carmel. Thus the Old Testament provides the key to unlock the code of Revelation. 

Jacques B. Doukhan, a Jewish believer in Yeshua as the Messiah and a scholar of Jewish heritage,, mines the Old Testament to uncover new meaning in the battle of Armageddon and the millennium. He ties the symbolism of the book to the sanctuary service of ancient Israel, showing how the seven sections of the book correspond to the seven feasts of Judaism. He argues that the prophecies of Revelation foretell the eventual discrediting of secularism (Egypt), the resurgence of conservative religion (Babylon), and a final coalition of the two movements in the climactic events before the second coming of Christ to defeat sin and save His people.

Ecclesiastes: All Is Vanity (Kindle Edition)


Dr Jacques Doukhan, a Jewish believer in Yeshua as the Messiah and a scholar of Jewish heritage, identifies contradiction as a symptom of our human condition. “Ecclesiastes affirms the value of work, wisdom, life, and happiness. But all these good values—including religion and even righteousness—contain the potential of corruption and evil.”

“All is vanity,” yes, all, even the good. Solomon, an old king, approaches his death haunted by his past. When first on the throne, he had asked for wisdom. He was granted that and much more. But looking back over his life in an effort to pass on what he has learned to his successor, Solomon finds his journey riddled with contradictions.

Twenty-first-century Jews and Christians may recognize in Solomon’s musings that “‘all’ times are given by God: not only the good times but also the bad; not only the times of life but also the times of death.”
