A Study of the Life of Jesus, Yeshua Ha-Mashioch


Title – A Study of the Life of Jesus, Yeshua Ha-Mashioch

Author – Dr. Laura-Lee Clancy Kelley

Publisher – WinePress Publishing, Enumclaw, WA, 2003

Mrs. Kelly obtained her undergraduate degrees in Medical Technology and nursing, devoting much of her life to the medical industry.  She completed her Ph.D. at the University of Georgia.  She has one son who is married and three granddaughters.  She currently resides with her husband Dave in Idaho Falls, Idaho.

The book is pure Scripture, taken from the New American Standard Bible and formatted chronologically on the life of Jesus with a special emphasis on Him as our Passover Lamb.

The book is broken into 21 sections:

  • Beginnings
  • The Miracle of John the Baptist’s Birth
  • The Conception and Birth of Jesus (Yeshua)
  • Jesus Childhood until He was twelve
  • The Appearance of John the Baptist
  • The Beginnings of Jesus’ Ministry is Concurrent with the End of John the Baptist’s Ministry
  • Yeshua (Jesus) is Tempted by Satan (Also known as Lucifer)
  • The Call to Discipleship
  • Beginning His Public Ministry in Galilee, Judea, and Samaria
  • Jesus’ Galilean Ministry
  • The Sovereignty of the Son
  • Choosing the Twelve Disciples is Followed by the First Major Teaching
  • Jesus Sends out His Twelve Disciples
  • Intense Discipling of the Disciples
  • Jesus’ Ministry in the Region of Judea Beyond the Jordan
  • Yeshua (Jesus) Warns and Encourages His Disciples
  • His Perean Ministry (Modern Jordan)
  • Count the Cost of Discipleship
  • Yeshua’s (Jesus’) Final Ministry in Jerusalem
  • His Passion and Death
  • Other Appearance of Yeshua (Jesus) to His Disciples

I used this book in preparation for Holy Week in Idaho Falls.  The author takes the position that Jesus was crucified on a Thursday, not Friday.

I noted that with Jesus only having several days to live, this is what He emphasized in vivid color from the Old Testament:  Zechariah 9:9, Psalm 118:26, Isaiah 56:7, Jeremiah 7:11, Psalm 8:2, Isaiah 53:1, Isaiah 6:10, Isaiah 56:7, Isaiah 5:1-5, Psalm 118:22-23, Deuteronomy 25:5-6, Exodus 3:6, Deuteronomy 6:5, Leviticus 19:18, Psalm 110:1, Daniel 9:27, Isaiah 13:10, Isaiah 34:4, Psalm 41:9, Psalm 35:19, Psalm 69:4, Zechariah 13:7, Zechariah 11:12-13, Jeremiah 32:6-9, Hosea 10:8, Psalm 22:18, Isaiah 53:9, Psalm 22:8, Psalm 22:1, Psalm 31:5
