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!
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.
