Description


Removing Western Cultural Blinders to See Jesus in Context

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.

In Jesus Through Middle Eastern Eyes, Ken Bailey

  • Employs his trademark expertise as a master of Middle Eastern culture,
  • Leads readers into a deeper understanding of the person and significance of Jesus within his own cultural context, and
  • Lifts away the obscuring layers of modern Western interpretation to reveal Jesus in the light of 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.
