Judaism through the Eyes of Jesus


Randy Weiss 2014

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


The Jewish world Jesus lived in was diverse and nuanced. Attempting to debunk common views of first-century Jews as being only a pharisaical people who rejected the messiah, Randy Weiss explores the diversity in Jewish culture and how it impacted Jesus and his followers. Weiss introduces the cultures and practices of ancient Israel, describing the environment Jesus inhabited during his time on earth. Judaism through the Eyes of Jesus sheds light on the context of the New Testament, and surveys modern and historical scholarship on Judaism in the time of Jesus.
