The product of many years research, Edersheim's Life and Times of Jesus the Messiah is an "illustration" of the gospel accounts of the life of Jesus of Nazareth. Arranged chronologically as a series of episodes, Edersheim puts the events of Jesus' life and ministry as given in the gospel accounts into their historical, social, and cultural context, including extensive references to early Jewish and rabinnical sources. Contains nineteen appendixes dealing with such diverse topics as the date of the Nativity, the New Testament Psudepigrapha ("false writings") and Apocryphal gospels, and Jewish angelology and demonology.
