Jesus (Yeshua) is a Worm...and a Snake Too, Among Other Things by Kendall T. Shoulders takes a fresh new look at the Bible and some of its contents. Jesus has been described in glowing terms inside and outside Christianity. But, in different parts of the scripture, he has described himself as a worm, specifically, a Tola worm. Of all the creatures, why would Jesus choose this particular worm to put his point across? What characteristics of the Tola worm are comparable to the sacrifices made by Jesus for His people? What symbolic power does the Tola worm signify? If Jesus is the son of God, and the Alpha and Omega, then how does the Tola worm allegory fit into all this?
Wow! What an interesting and engrossing book. I was fascinated with the writing from the word "go". This has been the single best read on the various aspects of the Bible that lay people need help with to understand and appreciate. So many things that I personally was not aware of are explained in such a wonderful way. One feels God must have surely guided the author while writing this book. The body and blood sacrifice of the Tola worm is so similar to the ultimate sacrifice of the Savior. The story of Jonah and the Tola worm really helped me to understand the concept of God's grace. Kendall T. Shoulders has succeeded in putting across his research and interpretations in a very succinct and interesting manner. Kudos to him and his awesome book.
