A Handbook on the Jewish Roots of the Christian Faith

Product Description
This is a comprehensive handbook that serves as an introduction

to the Jewish roots of the Christian Faith. It includes Old Testament

background, Second Temple Judaism, the life of Jesus, the New

Testament, and the early Jewish followers of Jesus.

It is no longer a novelty to say that Jesus was a Jew. In fact, the

term "Jewish roots" has become something of a buzzword in

books, articles, and especially on the internet. But what does the

Jewishness of Jesus actually mean, and why is it important?

This collection of articles aims to address those questions and

serve as a comprehensive yet concise primer on the Jewish roots

of the Christian faith. It consists of thirteen chapters, most of which

are divided into four or five articles. It is in the "handbook" format,

meaning that each article is brief but informative. The thirteen

chapters are grouped into four major sections: (1) The Soil, (2) The

Roots, (3) The Trunk, and (4) The Branches.
