Item description for The World of Jesus: Culture, History, Religion, Politics, Geography by Joanne Turpin...

Overview
The hunger to know more about Jesus has not diminished in the two thousand years since he walked this earth. He once asked his disciples. "Who do you say that I am?" Ever since then, beginning with the gospels, innumerable books have tried to give an answer. Of course, Jesus does not stand apart from his world. To try to understand him fully, we must take into account his religious heritage, the social and cultural environment, history, geography, politics, economics-all the elements that help shape society and individual lives. In The World Of Jesus, Joanne Turpin takes us on a detailed tour of Jesus' world, almost as a video program would. She arranges the story of his ministry around three themes: Jesus as Healer, as Teacher, and as the Way for all who would follow him. Four chapters develop each theme by focusing on individuals, in the Bible whose stories illustrate the theme, beginning with a relevant gospel incident and brief commentary. The commentary is followed by a more in-depth examination of the cultural, historical, and other factors that contributed to the first-century attitudes, customs, and practices of Jesus and his contemporaries. Anyone aspiring to a fuller understanding of the Jesus of the gospels will find The World Of Jesus a revelation.
