Sitting at the Feet of Rabbi Jesus: Mar 23, 2010
Opens up the Bible in away I hadn't experienced before.Sitting at the Feet of Rabbi Jesus: How the Jewishness of Jesus Can Transform Your Faith
Best book I've read in a long time Mar 11, 2010
Short of going to Israel, this book is the best thing I have found to make the Scriptures come alive for me. Well researched and easily readable. I absolutely loved this book!
One of My Recent Favorites Feb 26, 2010
As a Messianic Jewish Rabbi I cannot say enough about this book. After reading it through I wanted to start all over again. For Christians who are interested in learning more about the Jewishness of Christ and His Apostles this is a great place to start. I had a hard time putting it down.
Tremendous Read Feb 4, 2010
I received the book "Sitting at the Foot of Rabbi Jesus" just the other day, and cannot put it down. These two ladies(the authors)make the Jewish Jesus so easy to understand. Such great explanations of everything back in Jesus time- feasts etc. I recommend this book to every christian who is interested in the Hebraic roots. Every church should teach this.
A Real Understanding Jan 22, 2010
I ordered the book Sitting at the Feet of Rabbi Jesus Sitting at the Feet of Rabbi Jesus: How the Jewishness of Jesus Can Transform Your Faith to get a greater understanding of The Word. I was not disappointed. I am only half way through the book, but I have already gained a much greater understanding of the Gospels. For instance, the book noted that Mary annointed Jesus' feet with nard not only because of his upcoming burial, but because he was the King of Kings. Before reading the book I had never thought about the fact that Mary knew that he was the King of Kings. Of course she knew -- but it had never been pointed out to me in that way before. This book allows me to read the Word in the context in which it was written, peeling back the layers of time and revealing its secrets.
