Arnold Fruchtenbaum is a Messianic Jewish scholar and expert on the life of the Messiah from a Jewish perspective (MP3s and DVDs are available — scholarly and popular books by that title may be on the way). Arnold was born in Russia and escaped Hitler before landing in the USA.
Arnold is a Bible encyclopedia — rumor has it he even studies the Bible in the shower. His scholarship is perhaps best evidenced during the Q and A times following each lecture. Arnold appears to know the Bible off-by-heart including the ability to cite chapter and verse for almost everything.
Arnold’s lectures are highly structured and methodical, and delivered in an accented monotonic manner. Notes are provided including lots of whitespace for you to add your own notes on them. Every lecture section ends by a Rabbi joke.
Following the lecture given in the photo above, one questioner asserted that the Jews have a debt owing to the church. Arnold replied correctly that the actual debt is the other way around. The church is hugely in debt to the Jews, and part of that debt should be an apology for the disgraceful treatment the Jews have received at the hands of Christians during their diaspora. This disgraceful behavior continues in parts of the anti-Semitic church today.
