The history of the Catholic Church is foreshadowed by the whole history of the Israelites in the Old Testament, event for event and in chronological order.  The implications of this are wonderful, impactful, far-reaching and beautiful!  As far as we can determine, this marvel has been hidden until now.  Therefore, we need help in researching, documenting, gathering and presenting this stunning act of God!  This information could be extremely useful in converting people to the Catholic Faith!    Deus Vult!
