Haskell Stone, An Exceptional Teacher

Haskell Stone taught Philosophy in several colleges in the Detroit area and had an outstanding reputation for his teaching of the Holy Scriptures.

Haskell was born in 1931 to Orthodox Jewish parents. When he was a student at Wayne University, Detroit, he was approached by a fellow student, Al Brickner, who was also Jewish. Al informed Haskell that he had recently been convinced that Yeshua of Nazareth, Jesus, is the promised Jewish Messiah. Upon hearing Al’s declaration, Haskell was so angry that he threw a bowl of spaghetti at Al. Following this incident Haskell began an intense study of Tanakh (The Old Testament) and B’rit Chadasha (The New testament) to prove that Al Brickner had reached the wrong conclusion. Instead, Haskell came to the same conclusion as Al and became a follower of Yeshua the Messiah (Jesus).

Upon graduation from Wayne University with a major in Philosophy, Haskell attended Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, California, and graduated
with a degree in Theology and Semitic Studies.

Haskell returned to the Detroit area, where he propagated the Good News of Yeshua the Messiah and helped establish the Northwest Fellowship.  Following many years of productive ministry and teaching, Haskell departed this life in 1998, the year Israel celebrated its 50th Anniversary. The messages Haskell Stone left us are first a tribute to Messiah Yeshua and to Haskell himself..
