Jesus Through Middle Eastern Eyes: Cultural Studies in the Gospels
December 28, 2015
This is one of the best books I've ever read--it really could be considered a textbook. Because of the author's level of understanding of the culture, it opened my understanding of why Jesus was so radical and why He literally turned the world upside down. I made me love Jesus even more. I have given this book to several of my family and friends.
This is an excellent book which answers many questions about scriptures that were puzzling to me before. The author is extremely gifted. Though being highly educated, he writes and uses diagrams that make the scriptures so clear to the average individual.
This is the book I have been looking for for many years. Dr. Bailey shows Jesus in His culture not in ours. Yet Jesus teachings have a stronger meaning when we realize what He was teaching to the Jewish people in early first century A.D. Palestine. I found this book added not only to my knowledge but most important to my faith. There is much material here that every Christian needs to study, enjoy and learn.
