In this ebook download of 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 over time. Doing so will yield fresh, practical insights for following our Rabbi's teachings from a Jewish point of view.

Essential Reading
5 stars By Dr. Bernard Low, Dec 05 2017
Lois Tverberg has earlier on co-authored Sitting at the Feet of Rabbi Jesus with Ann Spangler. This book continues the same emphasis to understand all that Jesus said, did and taught from his Jewishness. Very often, the Gospels and hence Jesus are understood through Western lens and worldviews. Tverberg rightly points us back to the first century Jewish cultural setting for that was the Sitz im Leben (German for "setting in life") for Jesus' ministry and teaching. Highly recommended!
