Everyone knows Kathie Lee Gifford as the bubbly blonde of morning television. And Kathie Lee just wrote a book about her true passion her faith, called ‘the Rock the Road and the Rabbi'.
Kathie Lee has never been quiet about her faith in Jesus Christ. But ever since hosting the 4th hour of the Today show with Hoda Kotb, Kathie Lee has been even more vocal about the salvation of King Jesus.
And almost anytime Kathie Lee is absent from the Today show she is traveling in Israel. When asked about the inspiration behind her book Kathie Lee shared about her trips to Israel. After visiting the Holy Land Kathie and her husband Frank were changed. They felt closer to Jesus than ever before and it lit a fire in Kathie to search for the truth of who Jesus was.
While she was following the footsteps of Jesus, Kathie learned that Jesus couldn't have been a carpenter, as we understand that today, because all there was in Israel in that time was rocks. So Jesus would have instead been a stone mason. That nugget of truth made Kathie want to dig even deeper, and to find out what else we were wrong about.
So with the help of her good friend Rabbi Jason Sobel she dove into the original Biblical texts in the Greek and Hebrew. She tied in the things she found in her study and from her trips to the Holy Land to write her book ‘the Rock the Road and the Rabbi.' The ‘Rock' is Jesus Christ, the ‘Road' is Israel and the ‘Rabbi' the word of God. And what an incredible read this book will be!
Hearing how just researching this book changed Kathie's life makes me so hopeful that reading it may change the lives of so many who may not yet have decided to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ!
