Product Description
One of the best-known references on the life of Christ now available in one unabridged volume!

Alfred Edersheim's The Life and Times of Jesus the Messiah is a storehouse of information on the background of the New Testament. This classic work successfully portrays the streets, the marketplaces, the religious conflicts, the people, and the places of Jesus' earthly ministry.

This updated edition features text reset in modern print and several new maps and illustrations. In addition, Roman numerals have been changed to Arabic numbers, Greek and Hebrew words transliterated, and the indexes corrected and updated.

Edersheim divides his work into five sections, or books: Book 1 - The Preparation for the Gospel
Introductory historical, religious, political, and cultural material based on the author's extensive knowledge of Jewish lore and customs.

Book 2 - From Bethlehem to Jordan
The background of Herod and his reign, St. John the Baptist and his message, and the birth and baptism of Jesus.

Book 3 - From Jordan to the Mount of Transfiguration
Thirty-seven chapters explore the miracles and teachings of Jesus' early ministry.

Book 4 - The Descent into the Valley of Humiliation
A history of the latter part of Jesus' ministry from the Transfiguration to the journey to Jerusalem.

Book 5 - The Cross and the Crown
A chronicle of each day of Passion Week, from Palm Sunday to the Resurrection.

Appendices
Valuable background material on Jewish history, tradition, and law.
