Reviews - What do customers think about The Life And Times of Jesus the Messiah?

Incredible  Mar 9, 2008
I have had this book for years and still refer to it regularly. If you have an interest in why Jesus did the things He did, why He said what He said, or why the people responded the way they did you should read this book. One cannot fully grasp the message of the New Testament without the type of knowledge that comes from Edersheim.
Wow!   Dec 11, 2007
This book is so much more than I expected! It is a beautiful and welcome addition to my library. I am studying to become a rabbi and trust that this will be a well-used reference. Thank you for the wonderful surprise. (And the GREAT PRICE!!!!!!)
Messiah's Life and Times plus more!  Jan 15, 2007
The edition of "The Life and Times of Jesus Christ the Messiah" that I am reviewing is the third edition printed in 1995. It is a burgundy hard cover with gold lettering. This may be the most thorough,comprehensive book about the land and times of Jesus. It covers religious thought and politics of the day. What the Messianic expectations were. This is a very detailed and well-documented chronicle of the Messiah's life. The Appendices in the back of the book are the best I have read. Mr.Edersheim also covers such topics as: Pseudigraphic Writings-Enoch,Jubilees,Apocalypse of Baruch are some. Rabbinic views,theology,and literature. Lists of the Maccabees,Family of Herod,and Roman govt leaders. The Law in Messianic times. Jewish Angelology and demonology.The Jewish history of exorcisms was interesting. The Fall of Angels. Some very helpful tools also found in the back of this book are the Subject Index,Scripture Index,and maps. I have read "the Complete Works of Josephus". This book is much better in my opinion! It covers a lot more ground and would make a great reference tool.
A Rough Read, Dated Scholarship  Sep 16, 2006
This has been the standard work on the life of Christ for decades. It has some good insights into the life of Jesus, and it will help pastors and teachers of the Word in their search for information that will preach.

The book has some weaknesses that keeps it from being the top contemporary resource on the life of Jesus. Number one: The book is not easy to read. It is technical and tedious, and demands alot from the reader.

Number two: Edersheim operates under the assumption that everything he knows about Talmudic tradition was also true in the first century, and we simply do not know if this was the case.

Number three: The scholarship in this book is more than a hundred years old. I think the best features of the book are the preaching tidbits sprinkled throughout the volume.

Having said all that,I think that if you are looking for the best Jesus biography, you'd be better served with Jesus and the Gospels by Craig Blomberg. The scholarship is recent, the prose is engaging, and the volume compresses an amazing amount of information in its 450 pages. Buy that book, along with Darrell Bock's Jesus According to Scripture and Ben Witherington's The Christology of Jesus, and you should have everything you need.
In depth and concise   Jul 4, 2006
In depth and concise I think Alfred Edersheim is brilliant and its evident in his book The life and times of Jesus messiah. He goes into great detail and gives us a Jewish understanding of the synoptic gospels. If one wants to truly relate to the apostles then this book is a must read.
