The Forgotten Jesus: How Western Christians Should Follow an Eastern Rabbi

, 2017
ISBN: 9780310591924



Through the years, our understanding of Jesus has been shaped by different cultural influences, and many Christians have forgotten that Jesus was a Jewish man living in a Jewish land, observing Jewish customs, and investing his life into Jewish men and women.

Trading the popular, but inaccurate Western perspective of the Bible for the context in which Jesus actually ministered in 2000 years ago, author Robby Gallaty reveals the fascinating Hebraic culture, customs, and nuances many Christians have never experienced or learned about.

By uncovering the teaching of the first and second century rabbis and Christian theologians, and highlighting little-known Jewish idioms and traditions, Gallaty takes Christians on a biblical journey to rediscover a forgotten Jesus from a biblical perspective, deepening your relationship with God.

Top Highlights

“One out of every twenty-two verses in the New Testament contains quotations from the Old Testament, and including allusions to the Old Testament make that ratio jump even higher. For the first-century Christian, the Old Testament was the only Testament.” (Page 22)

“‘He who studies the Torah and does not review is like one who plants and does not harvest.’19” (Page 35)

“Fire is never used in the Bible in reference to a human being; it is always a reference to God. Easton’s Bible Dictionary states that both of these elements—smoke and fire—are ‘symbolic of the presence of the Almighty.’” (Page 44)

“Jesus never disregarded the written law, the Hebrew scriptures. When he rejected a teaching, it was always a teaching of the oral law, the extrabiblical rules and interpretations of the rabbis.” (Page 25)

“By having these three images come together—Abraham’s deep sleep, the smoking pot, and the flaming torch—God shows that he will be the one responsible to keep both sides of the agreement.” (Page 44)
