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!
First book read on the Jewishness of Christ. The book brings the Old Testament into the basis of Christ's life and ours today. This book has been great for Bible Study Groups! The response was fantastic
I loved this book; it was exactly as promised and extremely enlightening in regards to the Jewishness of Jesus and how that's important to our understanding of the whole of Scripture. I will be ordering the next book in the series.
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.
This books was an answer to my prayers to learn more about the "Jewishness of Jesus". This is a beautifully written book and it's VERY easy to read. This book is one of my top personal library favorites and I'm always recommending it to others to purchase.
