Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Although the roots of Christianity run deep into Hebrew soil, many Christians are regrettably uninformed about the rich Hebrew heritage of the church. This volume shows the vital link between Judaism and Christianity, laying a solid foundation for a truly meaningful Jewish-Christian dialogue.

Table of Contents

The roots and branches — Gentiles, Jews, and Jewish heritage — The earliest church and Judaism — Theological conflict and persecution — Heretics and the synagogue — The Jewish revolts and the parting of the way — A history of contempt: Anti-semitism and the church — The Old Testament: Hebraic foundation of the church — The contour of Hebrew thought — Where the church went wrong — Marriage and the family through Hebrew eyes — Passover and Last Supper — Jews, Christians, and the land — A life of learning: The heart of Jewish heritage — If not now...when?

This book gave me a great picture of the Jewishness of Jesus which in turn illuminates the things that He said. It is a must to understand the true background of Jesus and the Christian faith, starting as a sect of Judaism.
