There’s a new FREE Kindle book – The World of Jesus: Making Sense of the People and Places of Jesus’ Day available for your Amazon Kindle or Kindle App! (Reg. $12.99) This looks like an easy to read and interesting introduction to the background of the time that Jesus lived (it has great reviews too).
To understand Jesus’ life and ministry, we need to understand the history and culture of his world. Marty, author of the popular The Whole Bible Story, provides readers with a thoroughly readable, easy-to-understand history of Israel leading up to the time of Christ. Each chapter ties closely to the events of the New Testament as Marty carefully answers such questions as
•Who were the Pharisees and why was Jesus upset with them?
•Why didn’t anyone like the Samaritans?
•When and why did the Jews start worshiping in “synagogues” rather than the Temple?
The book will include call-out boxes, summaries, and other tools to make this the most accessible book available on the topic.
