Publisher's Description

Meet the Rabbis explains to the reader how rabbinic thought was relevant to Jesus and the New Testament world, and hence should be relevant to those people today who read the New Testament.

In this sense, rabbinic thought is relevant to every aspect of modern life. Rabbinic literature explores the meaning of living life to its fullest, in right relationship with God and humanity. However, many Christians are not aware of rabbinic thought and literature. Indeed, most individuals in the Western world today, regardless of whether they are Christians, atheists, agnostics, secular community leaders, or some other religious and political persuasions, are more knowledgeable of Jesus' ethical teachings in the Sermon the Mount than the Ethics of the Fathers in a Jewish prayer book. The author seeks to introduce the reader to the world of Torah learning. It is within this world that the authentic cultural background of Jesus' teachings in ancient Judaism is revealed. Young uses parts of the New Testament, especially the Sermon on the Mount, as a springboard for probing rabbinic method. The book is an introduction to rabbinic thought and literature and has three main sections in its layout: Introduction to Rabbinic Thought, Introduction to Rabbinic Literature, and Meet the Rabbis, a biographical description of influential Rabbis from Talmudic sources.

    After having heard several claims about the influence of the Rabbi's on Jesus' teachings, I was curious enough to pick up this volume and I was not let down. This is an excellent introductory text for both the student, the lay person, and the Pastor who needs a refreshing look at how Jesus' ministry is positioned in the center of Jewish life and as a continuum in Rabbinic Judaism as a whole. A must read.

    I have only begun to delve into this book and I really really like it. For those of you really wanting to understand our Messiah more from the Jewish perspective of which the western church world is really lacking in, you might want to buy this book.. Many believers just don't really think about the fact that Yeshua (Jesus) was a Rabbi.) Our God and Saviour is inexhaustible in HIS Being..Wow!
