"A spotless Red Heifer holds the key to the building of the Third Temple in Jerusalem. Why did God ordain this sacrifice? Why must the heifer be entirely red? No other sacrificial animal is designated by color. Why must it be sacrificed on the Mount of Olives? But most importantly, what can the Sacrifice of the Red Heifer teach us about Jesus Christ?
"This book is the result of 17 years of research and five trips to Israel. Karen has also traveled to Canton, Mississippi to meet with the Rev. Clyde Lott, the Pentecostal minister who raises Red Angus cattle. Rev. Lott's herd produced the first certified Red Heifer of this era in 1994.
"Karen attended a Temple Conference in Jerusalem where she interviewed Rabbi Chaim Richman of the Temple Institute, an organization preparing clothing, vessels and implements for the coming Temple. She participated in a dig at Qumran near the Dead Sea in Israel with archaeologist Vendyl Jones, who is searching for an ancient vessel believed to contain the ashes of the last Red Heifer sacrificed in Israel some 2,000 years ago. Her research teaches how this intriguing and mystifying sacrifice points to Christ. "Messiah of the Winepress" is the only Christian book on this subject."
