Description

In Walking in the Dust of Rabbi Jesus, Lois Tverberg challenges readers to follow their Rabbi more closely by re-examining his words in the light of their Jewish context. Doing so will provide a richer, deeper understanding of his ministry, compelling us to live differently, to become more Christ-like. We ll 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. What wisdom can we glean from his Eastern, biblical attitude toward life? How can knowing Jesus within this context shed light on his teachings for us today? In Walking in the Dust of Rabbi Jesus we ll 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 bring new meaning to our faith. And we ll 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."
