Item description for King of the Jews: Jesus and the Messianic Age by Ed Beckstrom...
Jesus is often thought of in terms of Christian ideals. This book looks at Jesus as he is rarely pictured, a Jew who wanted to establish a Messianic Age among his followers, where he would reign as king and lead under the authority of God. It explores the relationship with his family, and his social status. His familial relationship was tense at best, and perhaps even hostile. He was not born in a stable, nor were his family poor.
Beckstrom's book also explores the crisis in the early church between the disciples of Jesus and the interpretation of Jesus as taught by the Apostle Paul among his churches. King of the Jews provides a fresh look at Jesus and the Early Church of the first century.
