This book helps you understand a bit of what it was like to be Jewish in the days of Jesus. It helps Christians understand that Jesus wasn't Christian. He wasn't American. Jesus was Jewish.
You'll explore the heritage Jesus carried with him. Some of the customs which add so much "meat" to some of the passages in the New Testament.
You'll gain a better insight into how Jesus compared with other rabbis of his time and where he stood on some of the more debated issues.
It felt like a quick read to me but I want to go back and do some more highlighting as it was such a fantastic culture-setting resource.
This book was provided for review, at no cost, by Abingdon Press.
