The Life and Times of Jesus the Messiah • Updated Edition
From The Publisher:
Alfred Edersheim's The Life and Times of Jesus the Messiah has been called by Eternity magazine "The most readable and eloquent narrative and interpretation of the life of Christ both for the general reader and the most advanced student. . .unequaled."
Edersheim begins with introductory and historical material, and then gives a complete, chronologically arranged narrative and interpretation of Jesus' life. Edersheim bases his careful explanations of the beliefs and customs, as well as of the explosive political situation in Israel in Jesus' day, upon his extensive knowledge of Jewish lore and customs. Edersheim's scholarship and attention to detail make Life and Times especially valuable.
Although an invaluable reference work, The Life and Times of Jesus the Messiah also speaks in powerful words and images of the passion and struggle of Christ and His followers, of the light which Christ brought to the midst of a dark world. Edersheim tells the story of Christ's life, death, and resurrection, with quotations from Scripture and other ancient sources, in the hope that "it may be helpful for the fuller and clearer setting forth of the Life of Him Who is the Life of all our life."
