Jewishness of Jesus, The

Author: Derek White

Product code: BT13

Jesus was born a Jew into a particular land and culture. If we truly want to sit at His feet, we must recognise the vital contribution made to the framework and style of His teaching by the religious Jewish world of His day.

While most Christians will admit to the fact that Jesus was born Jewish, too many have created in their own minds a Gentile Jesus, and in so doing have distorted his teaching and at the same time made him foreign to his own Jewish people today.

It is in fact impossible to appreciate the impact of His teaching on His contemporaries unless we realise that he was speaking to them in terms they understood but which we fail to appreciate because of the distance in time and context.

This study opens up the subject of the Jewishness of Jesus and will hopefully stimulate further reading.
