In this concise introduction to Yeshua, also known as Jesus, our Messiah, we explore the concepts presented in Abraham Joshua Heschel's book "Man Is Not Alone: A Philosophy of Religion." Heschel discusses the "expectedness of meaning," asserting that the certainty of existence's value and compatibility with thought underlies our thinking, feeling, and actions. This notion becomes central to our quest for an intrinsic quality that signifies significance, paralleling Heschel's ideas.

Furthermore, we delve into a search for an inherent essence that demonstrates its importance. Heschel's insights guide us in seeking this meaningful quality, an axiom to which we commit everything we possess. Additionally, we examine the compatibility between discovered ideas and our beliefs, acknowledging the human-divine nature of Yeshua—a complex concept.

Our exploration mirrors preparing for a profound spiritual and historical journey, akin to learning about a new place's history before visiting. We relate this analogy to our quest for spiritual understanding, journeying through Judaism's principles and teachings about Yeshua. We challenge conventional perceptions to examine Yeshua's role in Jewish history.

Starting with the foundational principle of redemption in Judaism, we emphasize its significance despite its diminished prominence in modern Jewish discourse. We also address the connection between Judaism and Christianity, highlighting their shared origins and the idea that the entire Bible, including the New Testament, remains Jewish in essence.

Throughout our journey, we consider Messianic prophecies and their fulfillment, illustrating Yeshua's alignment with earlier predictions. His life stands as a testament to these prophecies, underscoring his role as a Jewish Messiah. We explore how Yeshua's teachings brought a fresh perspective to Judaism, focusing on his unique approach to Jewish tradition and scripture interpretation.

Yeshua's birth, upbringing, and training are revealed as quintessentially Jewish. His wisdom and adherence to Torah study, alongside his immersion, indicate his devotion to Jewish practices. His actions were in line with the Torah's prophetic predictions.

The extraordinary events surrounding Yeshua's death and resurrection parallel longstanding Jewish beliefs and prophecies. His crucifixion and resurrection align with ancient Jewish writings, suggesting his Messianic identity. Through these events, Yeshua fulfilled prophecies, completing his redemptive mission.

In conclusion, our journey uncovers the profound interconnectedness between Jewish faith and the person of Yeshua, revealing how his life fulfilled numerous prophecies and beliefs. Despite its complexities, this exploration underscores the validity of Yeshua's role as the Jewish Messiah and invites a reevaluation of traditional perspectives.
