“A Lawyer’s Case for the Resurrection” now available in Hebrew

Is belief in the resurrection of Yeshua (the Hebrew name of Jesus) a matter of faith, or is there historical evidence to support its occurrence? Even if there is compelling evidence, one question remains how did this seemingly impossible event take place? We struggle to wrap our minds around this, and justifiably so. We are faced with a daunting paradox: can a historic event be validated despite its miraculous nature?

Now this valuable resource is available in Hebrew. It may be purchased online for $4 at HaGefen Publishers.

HaGafen also sells Jim’s first book in Hebrew – A Lawyer’s Case for God.

Below are endorsements for the English version of A Lawyer’s Case for the Resurrection.

Jim makes the case for Christ like none I have ever seen. He uses his analytical
background as a lawyer to show how obvious it is that Christ surely is the Messiah and Lord. – Thomas J. Methvin, President of Beasley Allen Law Firm, chosen by Fortune Magazine as one of America’s Premier Lawyer’s, and the recipient of many trial lawyer awards

I enjoyed it a lot. The courtroom theme of the booklet really works. I liked the legal terminology and the headings for each section that clearly organize your argument. It was well argued and provided strong evidence and endnotes. I have yet to read a resurrection argument directed toward a Jewish audience! – Brian Crawford, Project Director of Chosen People Answers, with Chosen People Ministries

I have read many works on the topic of the resurrection. None have been presented in such a powerful way. I recommend this book for everyone; believers to strengthen their faith, and pre-believers who will be convinced by these highly persuasive arguments. This is a must have in your library. – Rabbi Don Goldstein, Shoresh David Messianic Synagogue, Brandon, FL

The book was incredibly well written and very insightful. – Zeke Montana, Q104’s “Morning Drive” on-air personality in Kansas City

I think everybody occasionally has doubts about the existence of God and the Resurrection. Maybe because of a career of skepticism, I might have more than most. I found Jim Jacob’s books to be extremely persuasive and a great help in my faith. He goes to extensive lengths to prove issues with both biblical and non biblical facts. – Jeff Jensen, former FBI agent, former federal prosecutor, and Partner at the law firm of Husch Blackwell

Great job! I loved it! I have a big proposal due tomorrow but couldn’t put the book down till it was done. Really good stuff. – Jeff Oddo, President, City Wide Franchising Company

I found Jim Jacob’s books to be informative and exciting especially for my Jewish friends!!!!!I have ministered to my Jewish friends for 46 years and these three books are the best I have ever read!!!!! – Marti Phipps, President of The Jewish Connection Ministries

I found the book to be very enlightening. Jim presents evidence on the resurrection the way a lawyer would present a case at a trial. I believe the evidence presented would meet the “beyond a reasonable doubt” burden of proof required in a criminal trial. – Bill Manson. Trial Attorney at Adler & Manson
