Product Description

Reviewing what we now know about actual synagogues in the land of Israel and their public role in Jewish life and culture, Jordan J. Ryan shows that Gospel narratives placed in synagogues accurately reflect the ancient synagogue setting. He argues for the historical plausibility of the setting of these narratives and that synagogue research must be a starting point for their interpretation. He further argues that Jesus’s efforts at the restoration of Israel were intentionally aimed at the synagogue as an institution of public and political life.
