Publisher's Description

A rare chance to know Jesus as his first disciples knew him. What would it be like to journey back to the first century and sit at the feet of Rabbi Jesus as one of his Jewish disciples? How would your understanding of the gospel have been shaped by the customs, beliefs, and traditions of the Jewish culture in which you lived? Sitting at the Feet of Rabbi Jesus takes you on a fascinating tour of the Jewish world of Jesus, offering inspirational insights that can transform your faith. Ann Spangler and Lois Tverberg paint powerful scenes from Jesus’ ministry, immersing you in the prayers, feasts, history, culture, and customs that shaped Jesus and those who followed him. You will hear the parables as they must have sounded to first-century Jews, powerful and surprising. You will join the conversations that were already going on among the rabbis of his day. You will watch with new understanding as the events of his life unfold. And you will emerge with new excitement about the roots of your own Christian faith. Sitting at the Feet of Rabbi Jesus will change the way you read Scripture and deepen your understanding of the life of Jesus. It will also help you to adapt the rich prayers and customs you learn about to your own life, in ways that both respect and enrich your Christian faith. By looking at the Jewishness of Jesus, Ann Spangler and Lois Tverberg take you on a captivating journey into the heart of Judaism, one that is both balanced and insightful, helping you to better understand and appreciate your own faith.

    Sitting at the feet of Rabbi Jesus is an absolute answer to prayer! I have always been intrigued by the culture and lifestyle of ancient Israel and how they translate within the parables of Jesus, as well as his teachings. This book has answered many questions for me and has helped to give me greater insight into Jesus' audience, and to see how down to earth and simple His messages were. No wonder all genders and ages were attracted to his messages and ministry. There is much that can be gleaned and applied to ministry today!

    I think the author's, Ann Spangler and Lois Tverberg, open up the world of Jesus as seen through Jewish eyes in a way that makes it easy to grasp for those who, perhaps, see things a little too much from a Western perspective. I found the book to be informative and enjoyable to read. So much so that I purchased the second book by Lois Tverberg dealing with a similar theme. Highly recommended!

    This book is an excellent inside look into the culture and environment at the time of Jesus' ministry, particularly with the Disciples. It deepens one's knowledge of Jesus' ministry, the Passover feast in the Upper Room,his time praying at Gethsemene, and how his Jewishness influenced his ministry and relationships.
