Sitting at the Feet of Rabbi Jesus
How the Jewishness of Jesus Can Transform Your Faith
A new book by Ann Spangler and Lois Tverberg, offers fresh insights into the historical Yeshua of Nazareth and the Jewish context of the Gospels. A perfect introduction to Hebrew Roots from a mainstream Christian perspective, a great gift, and an excellent companion piece for the new HaYesod program.
As a popular-level introduction to the Jewish Jesus and the Jewish context of the Gospels, Sitting at the Feet of Rabbi Jesus is second to none. This is a book any Christian can read and find edifying. Pastors will find it to be a source of fresh insights, and laymen will find themselves engaged, perhaps for the first time, with the historical Jesus, Yeshua of Nazareth. Spangler and Tverberg use Jewish sources to shed light on Yeshua's teaching, but then bring that teaching directly to bear on the reader with thoughtful, practical ways to implement Yeshua's words. Each chapter concludes with some suggested applications and connections to Jewish practice, enticing us with Torah, but never in a heavy-handed way.
