Publisher's Description

In this ebook download of Walking in the Dust of Rabbi Jesus, Lois Tverberg challenges readers to follow their Rabbi more closely by re-examining his words in the light of their Jewish context. Doing so will provide a richer, deeper understanding of his ministry, compelling us to live differently, to become more Christ-like. We’ll begin to understand why his first Jewish disciples abandoned everything to follow him, to live out his commands. Our modern society, with its individualism and materialism, is very different than the tight-knit, family-oriented setting Jesus lived and taught in. What wisdom can we glean from his Eastern, biblical attitude toward life? How can knowing Jesus within this context shed light on his teachings for us today? In Walking in the Dust of Rabbi Jesus we’ll journey back in time to eavesdrop on the conversations that arose among the rabbis of Jesus’ day, and consider how hearing Rabbi Jesus with the ears of a first-century disciple can bring new meaning to our faith. And we’ll listen to Jewish thinkers through the ages, discovering how ideas that germinated in Jesus’ time have borne fruit over time. Doing so will yield fresh, practical insights for following our Rabbi’s teachings from a Jewish point of view.

    An exceptional book... unbolts closed minds that heretofore have been, albeit innocently, indoctrinated with the image of a gentile Jesus who possesses absolutely no resemblance to the Jewish rabbi that he actually was. Lois Tverburg accurately reveals the teachings of our Messiah in their authentic context. Scriptures that Christians have read and treasured for a lifetime become fresh, new, and alive once they learn what Jesus was actually saying. I credit this book, and the book Tverburg co-authored with Ann Spangler, Sitting at the Feet of the Rabbi Jesus, for whetting my thirst for knowledge pertaining to the Jewish roots of the Christian faith. Informative and readable, scholarly without being "too heavy," I highly recommend this book.

    What a delightful and enlightening book. My heart was stirred towards our Jewish roots and how their practices are still relevant to us Christians today. In fact, often the wisdom and the practical application of Jewish ethics can teach us so much to be better Christians and disciples of Jesus.

    This book says if you understand the Jewish Jesus you can understand the Bible better and it is so true. Some things have been lost in translation.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book and learned much about the Jewish culture in which Jesus did his ministry. Quite often we mistakenly interpret the gospels through our Western mindset and miss the nuances and richness of the Jewish world. For instance, we often say that Jesus came to "abolish the law" as if Jesus was anti religious and anti law. Actually, Jesus came to fulfill the law.

    This book is loaded with original insights into the Hebrew language. What amazed me most was how rich the original Hebrew language is. Hebrew had something like 8,000 words where the English language as around 40,000. So many words we read in Scripture have multi-layered meanings. For instance, the word, "hear" means much more than simply audibly grasping a word. In the Hebrew language it meant to hear, to act upon, to obey.

    Tverberg has a wonderful way to bringing out these gems from the original Hebrew text and writes in such a way that the average layperson could read and understand and come away with a better grasp of Scripture. I highly recommend this book not only for pastors, but for any serious student of the Bible.
