The early leaders of the Church were all Jewish, the original Church was organized around the pattern of the Jewish synagogue, and Yeshua (Jesus) used numerous Jewish idioms in his teachings and was, perhaps, a Pharisee himself. Dr. Moseley illuminates the Jewish background of Yeshua and the Church in this best-selling book.
Yeshua: A Guide to the Real Jesus and the Original Church includes a foreword by Dr. Marvin Wilson, study questions, and an extensive glossary. This eye-opening work can be used by individuals and Bible study groups who want to learn more about the Jewish roots of their faith.
. . . must reading for serious students desiring to explore the historical and biblical linkage between the synagogue and church. I enthusiastically recommend this enlightening study of origins.
