Walking in the Dust of Rabbi Jesus

How the Jewish Words of Jesus Can Change Your Life

Author: Lois Tverberg

Product code: B449

This follow up to Sitting at the Feet of Rabbi Jesus looks at what the implications of Jesus` Jewish context are for how we live as his disciples. By considering his words in light of Jewish thought it can deepen our understanding in following him today.

Journey back in time to eavesdrop on the conversations that arose among the rabbis of Jesus` day, and consider how hearing Rabbi Jesus with the ears of a first-century disciple can add new meaning to our faith through practical insights that bring new depth to our spiritual life.  
Listen to Jewish thinkers through the ages, discovering how ideas that germinated in Jesus` time have borne fruit. Doing so will yield fresh, practical insights for following our Rabbi`s teachings from a Jewish point of view.
Begin to understand why his first Jewish disciples abandoned everything to follow him, to live out his commands. Our modern society, with its individualism and materialism, is very different than the tight-knit, family-oriented setting Jesus lived and taught in. It also explains: 
  • How knowing Jewish idioms can help us better grasp what Jesus was saying
  • How Jesus’ Middle Eastern culture sheds light on his parables, enlivening them in surprising ways
  • How the Jewish world of Jesus can teach us how to pray with chutzpah or think with both hands
  • What wisdom we can glean from his Eastern, biblical attitude toward life 
  • How knowing Jesus within this context can shed light on his teachings for us today
  • The meaning within key Hebrew words that make Bible reading richer and deeper.
