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. Well 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 well 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 well 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 Rabbis teachings from a Jewish point of view.

WilliamFalkville, ALAge: 55-65Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5ExceptionalFebruary 6, 2013WilliamFalkville, ALAge: 55-65Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5An 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.
