Placing Jesus firmly in the Jewish world he came from, this book helps the reader to grasp the context in which he grew up and in which he spread the gospel message. It begins by examining the world of Palestine in the first century and looking at the evidence that exists about Jesus. It then looks at Jesus in the world of Judaism, giving the Jewish background and the Jewish expectations to Jesus' life. The second half of the book describes the ministry and teaching of Jesus, helping the reader to understand the mission of Jesus and how he related to the world around him.
