Understanding Jesus Summary


Understanding Jesus: Cultural Insights into the Words and Deeds of Christ by Joe Amaral

Christians today often bring their own suppositions and assumptions to the reading of the Bible, not realizing how deeply their understanding of Christ's life and teachings is affected by a modern worldview. In this book Joe Amaral delves deep into Jewish history, societal mores and cultural traditions, closing the gap created by geographical distance and over two thousand years of history. Using a chronological approach to the life of Christ, he guides the reader through significant events such as Jesus' birth, baptism and crucifixion, pointing out illuminating details that the Western mind would normally miss. The premise is that to understand Jesus, we must understand the time and place in which he was born, the background from which he drew his illustrations and the audience he spoke to. Topics include the connection between Jesus and John the Baptist, the annual Feasts and why they are important to modern Christianity, Jewish customs such as foot-washing, clean and unclean foods, paying tribute to political governments and the significance of various miracles.

Understanding Jesus Reviews


"Joe Amaral's insights into first century Jewish culture will be of great benefit for anyone who is looking to discover and understand the original meaning of Jesus' teachings. I recommend heartily this reader-friendly book."--Craig A. Evans, Payzant Distinguished Professor of New Testament, Acadia Divinity College
"The fact that Jesus took on Jewish flesh means that we can't fully appreciate what He said and did unless we know the Jewish culture of His day. Joe Amaral sheds significant new light on the person and work of the Messiah and by digging deeper into the Hebraic roots of the New Testament text."--Wayne Hilsden, Senior Pastor, King of Kings Community, Jerusalem
Joe Amaral's UNDERSTANDING JESUS is a must read for anyone who is serious about determining the true meaning of Jesus' teachings. Amaral's knowledge of First Century Jewish life presents Jesus in His original cultural context. In doing so, many misunderstood or difficult passages are brought to life."--Dr. Dan Bahat, former District Archaeologist of Jerusalem
