The Pharisees Are Coming to Jesus

Xulon Press presents insight into modern Jewish teaching.

The Pharisees Rejected Jesus As The Messiah Centuries Ago, But Times Are Changing

Xulon Press presents insight into modern Jewish teaching.


Author Anthony Cardinale opens eyes to the transformation taking place among Orthodox Jews in The Pharisees Are Coming to Jesus: Secret Orthodox Believers in Israel and America ($20.99, paperback, 9781662810671; $9.99, e-book, 9781662810664).


Cardinale has made various trips to Israel and befriended many of the people there.  He has witnessed Orthodox Jews who continue their Temple worship on the Sabbath, yet also meet secretly with other believers in Yeshua (Jesus).  He examines the teaching of world-renowned Rabbi Samson Raphael Hirsch, whose eyes Cardinale believes have been opened to the truth of Christ.


“Christians will learn that God is removing the scales from Jewish eyes about Jesus, 2,000 years after God blinded them to give Gentiles an opportunity for salvation.   The descendants of the Pharisees (the Orthodox) are a key to the Second Coming, for they alone are still eager to rebuild the Temple, which Jesus said will be present in the final days,” said Cardinale.


Anthony Cardinale is an award-winning Christian Zionist who began writing about Israel and the Jewish people long before discovering his own Jewish bloodlines.  A member of the National Association of Scholars, he was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize three times during his years as a reporter with the Buffalo News. He has written for Messianic Times, Jewish Voice Today, Charisma and Ministries magazines, as well as the Orthodox weekly Yated Ne'eman.  He also brings to his writings his dramatic touch as an award-winning playwright.
