Jesus Through Middle Eastern Eyes: Cultural Studies in the Gospels

Product Description

IVP Academic

Imported from USA

Beginning with Jesus' birth, Ken Bailey leads you on a kaleidoscopic study of Jesus throughout the four Gospels. Bailey
examines the life and ministry of Jesus with attention to the Lord's Prayer, the Beatitudes, Jesus' relationship to
women, and especially Jesus' parables. Through it all, Bailey employs his trademark expertise as a master of Middle
Eastern culture to lead you into a deeper understanding of the person and significance of Jesus within his own cultural
context. With a sure but gentle hand, Bailey lifts away the obscuring layers of modern Western interpretation to reveal
Jesus in the light of his actual historical and cultural setting. This entirely new material from the pen of Ken Bailey
is a must-have for any student of the New Testament. If you have benefited from Bailey's work over the years, this book
will be a welcome and indispensable addition to your library. If you are unfamiliar with Bailey's work, this book will
introduce you to a very old yet entirely new way of understanding Jesus.
