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.
I am fast becoming an Ann Spangler fan! After reading two of her other books I was anxious to receive this one for review.
If you have ever wondered if you are missing something deeper in the stories of the gospels this is the book for you. In it the authors enlighten the reader on the customs and life of biblical times as well as rabbinical teachings. The language spoken was much deeper and richer than what can be conveyed in modern translations. Things that we think are vague examples those of that time could relate to on a deep and personal lever.
Discover the depth and richness of the gospels and appreciated the far-reaching, life changing words of Christ all the more. In these pages you will discover a well of knowledge and you will close it with clearer sight and deeper understanding of the precious living word of God.
