Product Description

One of the best-known references on the life of Christ now available in one unabridged volume!

Alfred Edersheim's The Life and Times of Jesus the Messiah is a storehouse of information on the background of the New Testament. This classic work successfully portrays the streets, the marketplaces, the religious conflicts, the people, and the places of Jesus' earthly ministry.

This updated edition features text reset in modern print and several new maps and illustrations. In addition, Roman numerals have been changed to Arabic numbers, Greek and Hebrew words transliterated, and the indexes corrected and updated.

Edersheim divides his work into five sections, or books:Book 1 - The Preparation for the Gospel
Introductory historical, religious, political, and cultural material based on the author's extensive knowledge of Jewish lore and customs.

Book 2 - From Bethlehem to Jordan
The background of Herod and his reign, St. John the Baptist and his message, and the birth and baptism of Jesus.

Book 3 - From Jordan to the Mount of Transfiguration
Thirty-seven chapters explore the miracles and teachings of Jesus' early ministry.

Book 4 - The Descent into the Valley of Humiliation
A history of the latter part of Jesus' ministry from the Transfiguration to the journey to Jerusalem.

Book 5 - The Cross and the Crown
A chronicle of each day of Passion Week, from Palm Sunday to the Resurrection.

Appendices
Valuable background material on Jewish history, tradition, and law.

    It is very wordy, but if one can digest the substance of the material, it will be of benefit far beyond what you think. I had to purchase the book again because some years ago I already had a copy but passed it along to another. I simply did not know what I had. Now I do. A great book and well worth the time to read and study.

    The definitive work on the life of Christ and the times in which He lived. Born in 1825 to a Jewish family, Mr. Edersheim was educated in the Talmud and Torah before entering the University of Vienna. His subsequent conversion to Christianity brought to Christendom a learned appreciation of the Jewish religion and culture. His research and writing provides what is still the most thorough analysis of Jesus and the world in which He ministered. His Christian orthodoxy is reflected in the reverence with which he handles the biblical text. Originally published in 1883, every Bible teacher will benefit from having this scholarly text in their library. Although more than a century old, it remains a most readable and enlightening book for anyone seriously studying the life and ministry of Jesus.
