The Hem of His Garment: Touching the Power of God's Word


Touching the Hem: Jesus and the Prayer Shawl

"If I can but touch the Hem of his Garment . . ." These words of desperation formed an axis of faith which brought a miracle into the life of a dying woman when she reached out and accessed the power resident in Jesus the Messiah. But, it was also a key to healing and deliverance for many others who came in faith because "all who touched the hem of his garment" were healed.

What was this material object which caused faith to rise in the hearts of citizens of first-century Israel?

This book gives a comprehensive study of the long and interesting Jewish tallit tradition, which required that the four-cornered garment commonly worn in Bible days have tzitzit (fringes) appended to each corner as a means of calling both the wearer and the observer to remember all the Word of God (commandments). You will simply be amazed at the extent of this tradition and its continuing impact upon the Jewish people to this day in the form of the "prayer shawl" that they wear at specific times of devotion and interaction with the Divine Presence. Don't miss The Hem of His Garment!
