A great tool for understanding the simplicity of the message of Jesus without the clutter of 2000 years of cultural change. A Must read for those who seek the original meaning and context of Jesus' ministry.
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.
Full of information and well written. Keeps you turning the pages and learning with much clearer understanding of the whole Bible. Loved Sitting at the Feet of Rabbi Jesus, love this one and hope there is a next.
