Jesus made bold claims during his lifetime on Earth. Was He indeed the Son of God, the Messiah the Jews were expecting for ages? Did indeed the Scriptures point to Him? Or were these mere lies? Kendall T. Shoulders in the remarkably titled Jesus (Yeshua) is a Worm...and a Snake Too, Among Other Things takes his audience across the Old Testament stories and prophecies with two animals pointing at Jesus Christ and His death and resurrection.

First, the special Tola worm appearing not only in Psalm 22, but in numerous other places being the source of the color scarlet. Second the snake, the one Moses had to lift high so that the people of Israel could look at it and be healed, and the way Jesus Christ was hung on a cross to become the life bearing serpent for us. Wonderful, how the biblical prophecies and characters tell much more than a superficial reading would reveal.

Along this journey through the Bible you'll learn more about God's timing, the meanings of colors, and the precise way the curse Satan is given after seducing Adam and Eve is executed. Hopefully in the end you'll have a clear understanding of who Jesus Christ is, and you don't have to wait for another messiah to deliver you from sin. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 162787223X, Paperback)

Jesus made many bold claims about himself throughout scripture. The boldest being that he is the Son of God. This primary claim alienates many around the world. Other religions say that Jesus was a great philosopher, teacher, humanitarian, and perhaps even one of the world's greatest prophets. All stop short of the claim that Jesus is the Son of God. Jesus claimed to be the "Way, the Truth, and the Life." He stated that he was the "Door" to his Father in Heaven. He also mentioned that he was the "Bread that came down from Heaven." In another section of scripture he touts being the "Alpha and the Omega" and the "Beginning and the End." He introduces himself as being eternal in the Gospel of John while claiming to be the co-creator of all things. He continues by describing himself as the "Light" that was called upon in the beginning of the book of Genesis when God said "Let there be light." Of the many claims that Jesus made, one stands out as being the most obscure but intriguing characteristics in scripture. Jesus called himself a "worm." How can a man who claims to be equal with God also make himself equivalent to a worm? If this is true, what does it mean for all of those who believe in him? What does it mean for all of those who do not? Jesus Is a Worm meticulously analyzes and contextualizes this overlooked metaphor in the Bible and explains how the symbolic power of a particular worm--the tola worm--holds significant lessons for all who would dare to listen. From its entomological roots to its status in Biblical societies, the tola worm was a recognizable and essential allegory in ancient times. Over the centuries, however, its importance in the Bible's teachings waned. Without Kendall Shoulder's passion for the truth, it may have disappeared entirely. Standing at the foot of Mount Herman at the altar of Zeus, Jesus asked a rather profound question of his disciples. He wanted to know from their perspective how they defined him. Before that time, there had been many angel-like gods that were purported to be God, and were presented in dramatic and powerfully deceptive ways. After reading Jesus Is a Worm, the same question will be asked of you. Who do you say he is?
