Finding cultural context

That lesson, of course, is at the heart of the Sermon on the Mount, given by Jesus on the shores of the Sea of Galilee nearly 2,000 years ago. What did his message mean to those who heard the wandering rabbi in the Judean countryside around 30 A.D.? What can we learn today about Jesus' life and teachings through the culture in which he lived? Sitting at the Feet of Rabbi Jesus: How the Jewishness of Jesus Can Transform Your Faith explores the Jewish Jesus, placing his life, words and deeds in the context of Jewish culture as it was practiced during the time of his ministry. Ann Spangler, a best-selling Christian author, and Lois Tverberg, a former scientific researcher, join forces to examine everything from archeological discoveries to the origins of Jewish beliefs and traditions. Their efforts bring fresh insight into the beginnings of Christianity, in some cases exposing modern misunderstandings derived from cultural practices that came centuries later. Sitting at the Feet of Rabbi Jesus not only helps the reader understand Jesus' culture, but also the deeper meanings within his teaching. Throughout, the authors encourage Christians to contemplate Jesus' Jewish traditions within a modern faith, challenging believers to consider everything from how they pray to how they practice the concept of Sabbath. Engaging, powerful and thought-provoking, Sitting at the Feet of Rabbi Jesus calls the reader to discover Christ again, as if to see his life and hear his words for the first time—and from that discovery to renew one's faith.
