Originally a print magazine and now an online publication, Jerusalem Perspective (JP) endeavors to help readers better understand Jesus’ life and teachings within the historical, cultural, religious and linguistic contexts of first-century Israel. JP also aims to acquaint readers with a new approach to the Synoptic Gospels, pioneered by Jewish and Christian scholars in Jerusalem, that uses Hebrew as a tool for identifying the earliest versions of Jesus’ sayings in the hope of more clearly conveying Jesus’ message to audiences today.
