During the writing and research of Joseph Farah’s 2017 title, The Restitution of All Things: Israel, Christians, and the End of the Age, he began focusing on what Jesus called “the gospel of the kingdom.” He observed that most definitions of the gospel revolve around personal salvation, rather than worldwide redemption, on which the prophets of both the Old Testament and the New focused. He wondered if this “gospel of the kingdom,” which points to a future garden of Eden–style restoration of the world, could be the secret of finding the gospel in every book of the Old Testament.
“It was the spiritual mystery of the gospel of the kingdom that allowed me to find the gospel all over the Hebrew Scriptures,” Farah says.
Now Joseph Farah's new book, "The Gospel in Every Book of the Old Testament," dives deeper into this idea.
For the last five years, Joseph Farah and his wife, Elizabeth, have been leading tour groups to Israel to show them ancient prophecies being revealed before their eyes. The Bible promises a time of restoration in Israel and all over the world. But it’s very specific about Israel.
“I love to show people around Israel—starting with the ruins,” he says. “Every time we view the archaeological ruins, we see evidence of God’s judgment. Then, when we see the people returning to the land and the deserts blooming, we see the evidence of the restoration. Israel is like a laboratory of Bible prophecy confirmed. And when we see it confirmed in the judgment and the early evidence of restoration, we can then project ahead with near certainty that there is a greater restoration coming in the future. That’s the gospel of the kingdom."
“It brings tears to people’s eyes when they see it for themselves,” he says. “They leave with the assurance, the knowledge, the certainty that the kingdom of God is coming to the earth in a real and powerful way—not just allegorically or spiritually.”
Joseph Farah's new book looks deeper into the Gospel truths and scripture prophecy that are woven throughout the Old Testament.
“Joseph Farah has set a magnifying glass down on the pages of the Old Testament and shares with readers what many fail to see when reading through the biblical stories of antiquity—Jesus—the great “I Am” of Scripture. In his latest work, ‘The Gospel in Every Book of the Old Testament,’ you will be thrilled at the passages that speak of Jesus before He came to earth in human form as the Christmas Child. The foreshadowing of Christ speaks clearly of the salvation He offers to mankind because Jesus, Himself, is the Gospel. Don’t miss the true adventure of seeing God’s perfect plan of redemption from beginning to end.”

“If you ever wondered why Christians need to understand the Old Testament, you’ll get a vivid understanding after reading Joseph Farah’s enlightening work ‘The Gospel in Every Book of the Old Testament.’ He skillfully reveals the thread of Christ that not only brings unity to the Old Testament, but he masterfully makes clear that the Old Testament is the very foundation upon which the New Testament record of Jesus is built. You’ll understand why all 66 books of the Bible have a singular message—the Messiah has come!”
“I was not only educated but also inspired and encouraged by ‘The Gospel in Every Book of the Old Testament,’ and you will be, too. I wholeheartedly recommend it to every person who either venerates the Bible as the Word of God or is simply curious to expound its original intent and often lost meanings.
