Great Book

This is a great book to help you understand Jesus's teachings in the context of the time and the people he was talking to (Jews).

Excellent Resource

This is a well written and easily readable book by a scholar and is very usefull for Bible Study and getting a new look at the life, times and teaching of Jesus from a Jewish perspective. After all, Jesus was a Jew.

Great Material and Insights Help Open Up the New Testament

Understanding the Jewish Roots of the Christian faith is a relatively new pursuit. Young's work certainly offers a major contribution in this field; it is clear, easy to understand, and enlightening.He offers insights into various passages, and the passages come to light, sometimes illuminated by understanding the Jewish background to a teaching or event.As a pastor preparing a 3 years seromn series on the Life of Christ, this was one book offered me fresh (but conservative)insights. Worth your time.

Jesus the Jewish Theologian

This is a book that belongs beside every bed in the world! What a wonderful thorough look at the Messiah Jesus! Dr. Young explores not only the parables of Jesus, but the historical settings, traditions and manners that are displayed in the Bible that are often overlooked. Dr. Young teaches at Oral Roberts University in Tulsa and travels the world speaking at various conferences. His studies while living in Israel at the Hebrew University have added a vast richness to his insight into teaching these truths. I would encourage every pastor or Bible student to read this book, and Dr. Young's other books: Paul the Jewish Theologian, The Jewish Background of the Lord's Prayer, Jesus and His Jewish Parables, and Parables: Jewish Tradition and Christian Interpretation. Dr. Young is one of the world's foremost scholars of Hebrew and Greek, and when he explains the world of prayer both in the Old Testament and New, a deeper depth of understanding is gained by his students. A must read!

Excellent indepth Jewish beliefs reflected in the words of J

Have just completed Jesus The Jewish Theologian and found it to be extremely revealing about the truth behind the words of Jesus. As a Christian I have always been interested in Judiasm and curious about how Jesus would feel today about his words in the Christian world. The book can only bring you closer to God. Whether you be Jewish or Christian. If Christian it will certainly give you "food" for thought.
