Jesus and His World places Jesus firmly in the Jewish world into which he was born, and helps the reader grasp the context in which he grew up and in which he spread the gospel message. Walker examines the world of Palestine in the first century and looks at the evidence that exists about Jesus. He then looks at Jesus in the world of Judaism, giving the Jewish background and the Jewish expectations of the Messiah. In the second half of the book he describes the ministry and teaching of Jesus and shows how our Lord related to the world around him. Walker draws on biblical scholarship and sharp insight to bring this central figure in world history to life.
