Product code: BT24
Many Christians still, if subconsciously, think of Jesus as a Gentile. To view him as a 1st century Orthodox teaching Rabbi can be a deep challenge and even shock to some. But this context is a step to understanding Him and His message more clearly.Arguing that we can't see Jesus correctly through the lens of centuries of western church theology and practice, David Bivin explores this subject out of deep knowledge and with great clarity.
