Publisher's Summary

In this unabridged audio download of Walking in the Dust of Rabbi Jesus, Lois Tverberg challenges readers to follow their Rabbi more closely by re-examining his words in the light of their Jewish context. Doing so will provide a richer, deeper understanding of his ministry, compelling us to live differently, to become more Christ-like. We’ll begin to understand why his first Jewish disciples abandoned everything to follow him, to live out his commands. Our modern society, with its individualism and materialism, is very different than the tight-knit, family-oriented setting Jesus lived and taught in. What wisdom can we glean from his Eastern, biblical attitude toward life? How can knowing Jesus within this context shed light on his teachings for us today? In Walking in the Dust of Rabbi Jesus we’ll journey back in time to eavesdrop on the conversations that arose among the rabbis of Jesus’ day, and consider how hearing Rabbi Jesus with the ears of a first-century disciple can bring new meaning to our faith. And we’ll listen to Jewish thinkers through the ages, discovering how ideas that germinated in Jesus’ time have borne fruit over time. Doing so will yield fresh, practical insights for following our Rabbi’s teachings from a Jewish point of view.

Insight on 1st Century Rabbinical Practice

What did you love best about Walking in the Dust of Rabbi Jesus?

Thought-provoking. Great background to understand the cultural context of the Gospels better. It was easy to follow. About half of the material was truly new to me, but every nugget that was new was priceless!

Excellent for the Jesus thirsty follower

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

With the belief that the bridegroom is coming, I am making every effort possible to know about about the groom. Ann gives us great insight on understanding the Jewish culture and how it pertains to our closed minded western view of the world. The ignorant are not ignorant because they don't desire knowledge. They are ignorant because they don't know that they don't know. Well, I have been ignorant to MANY things.
This book opened my eyes to a broader spectrum of knowledge. I will never read the bible the same again. Keep in mind, she does put her opinion in from time to time, but based on the Hebrew language and understanding of alone, helps me to better receive what I am writing. Wonderful Read!
