The Destiny of Israel and the Twilight of Christianity: In Quest of the Meaning and Significance of the Hebrew and Greek Scriptures

John Saggio

This study proposes that the promises in the Torah and the Prophets and the Greek Scriptures have all been fulfilled by 70 A.D.


This study proposes that the promises in the Torah and the Prophets and the promises of Jesus and the writers of the Greek Scriptures have all been fulfilled, concluding in 70 A.D. Interweaved in the study are the facts that Jesus the Christ has literally been raised from the dead and has achieved for all men without exception a justification of immortal life. This quest for the meaning and significance of the Hebrew and Greek Scriptures is not about Kierkegaard, Nietzsche, and Bonhoeffer; however, this quest does contribute to the continuing critique of Christianity initiated by the critical analyses of Kierkegaard, Nietzsche, and Bonhoeffer. This literary journey through the Hebrew and Greek Scriptures takes the critiques of these three critics of Christianity to their proper biblical conclusion.

Dear John
I am enjoying your work and in particular have always been fascinated by Bonhoeffer and his writings. He was the first man in Germany to step forward and speak out against Hitler and the Nazis. He was a man of principle and a man of action combined. His strength and his courage came from his convictions and from his faith. At his brutal execution he was calm and dignified and accepting of God's will and if he had lived longer he would perhaps have become one of the most accomplished figures of the twentieth century. 70 AD was a watershed year by any standards of course and Jesus did predict the destruction of the Temple. Your premise that all the predictions of the torah, prophets and the greek scriptures have been fulfilled is interesting and I am enjoying following your thinking on this. Good luck with the rest of your book.

Incerdibly impressive and scholarly.

Thanks you so much. It was a pleasure to read and learn the truth.

Happy to back this.

I appreciate your dedication and research. Please let me know when this book is published so I can read it in its entirity. We must always be extremely careful, however, in interpreting the Word of God because His ways are not ours. We must see by faith and we must constantly ask God for that faith. We must also remember at all times that this world is not all there is; there is another life awaiting us, and when asked what we must do to achieve that life, Jesus answered, "Love God with all your being, and your neighbor as yourself." When perusing Scripture, we must pay close attention to whatever Jesus said plainly and bluntly, because our eternal destiny coulf very well depend upon it. Well-researched and written. Backed.

Welcome aboard, John. This website will improve your writing craft, if you allow it. I'm a bit of a pitch doctor, having read thousands of pitches in my time on this website, so I want to share my insight here with you. You have to think of your pitches as your sales tool to grab the casual reader's eyes. For this genre, both pitches work. Perfecting your pitches is how you climb in ranking to gather more exposure and comments to better your novel.

Though I have been a very active member for over a year and have the most commented book on the website, I can still use your comments on my book when you get the chance. Every little bit helps. Cheers!

'Genesis and the entire corpus of the Hebrew and Greek scriptures must be read...from the theological beliefs of Israel'. It makes sense when you think about it, though going back to what you say about truth, many westerners would find it hard. We've almost come to think Christianity is a European religion.
Your writing is so knowledgable it's above my head most of the time but I'll persevere because what you say is fascinating. Backed with best wishes, Lynn

John, I read chapter 17 on Jacob's Trouble. It was very plain and explanatory. What Simeon and Levi did and the consequences would certainly be considered Jacob's Trouble. Jacob's Trouble with his sons selling Joesph was grieviously serious. I was particularly interested that you saw Jacob's Trouble starting again with John the Baptist and Jesus and continuing on through 70 A.D. It's a very informative chapter. Your insight is incredible. Margaret Carr

John - So much work and dedication, the research. And the writing is good too, which is about all I'm remotely qualified to judge. There are some sentence structure issues that bare an edit, but this is an admirable effort with real promise and deserving of shelf space.
Einstein's Road Trip [I would really like to see your take on Einstein if your time allows, the first chapter of which concerns a man's release from the state correctional facility in Winslow, Arizona. Thanks

Dear John,
you have quite the masterpiece here for sure. I took a little time to get into it, however after a very short while I found it so thought provoking I started to make notes in order to research for myself some aspects. This is good. It is obvious that you are quite the scholar on your subject and have set about with much research, CONGRATS on a well crafted book. A suggestion for your long pitch would be to put in some paras, as it could give your potential publisher the impression of it being a long read. when in fact it is not. again only a suggestion.
BACKED for sure by me
I do hope you review my book, please comment ( this assists me in honing my skill) and if you feel, back it.

I’m not a religious or Greek scholar, so I found this book interesting. It’s a complex read so a reader needs to clear an afternoon of distractions before beginning to read it, but doing that is worthwhile. I learned a lot. I’m adding this to my shelf. Burgio (Grain of Salt).

Dear John, I love that you are rightly dividing the Word of Truth in your book. :) Your scriptures are wonderful & the "The Wayfarer" is the added plus to your book. :) Your pitch is excellent, so set the hook for me to read your book. :) When you use short paragraphs & titles, it makes me want to keep reading to find out what you will say next. I'm backing your book. :) Could you please take a moment to back my TWO memoir/testimony books? Thanks. :) Love, Susie :)
