Jesus, The Middle Eastern Storyteller by Gary M. Burge

Author Gary Burge takes until on a brief journey into Jesus' ancient context in Jesus, the Middle Eastern Storyteller.

He answers questions like, "How should a father react when his son asks for his inheritance?", "What happens when a friend arrives at midnight seeking food?", and "Was Jesus a skilled storyteller among the rabbis?"

You'll learn how shame and honor were the top items of concern during Jesus's time.

You'll discover some of the background to enhance your understanding of the parables that Jesus used.

And you'll get to enjoy full colored pictures on every page of this tall and narrow book.

For a short work, this book has some great information to further your biblical studies.
