Blog, FAQs, Other Questions 1 Comment

We have a number of book suggestions and online resources for you to get started!

We recommend that you start by reading Sitting at the Feet of Rabbi Jesus: How the Jewishness of Jesus Can Transform Your Faith by Ann Spangler and Lois Tverberg (Zondervan, 2009).

Then read Lois Tverberg’s Walking in the Dust of Rabbi Jesus: How the Jewish Words of Jesus Can Change Your Life (Zondervan, 2012).

Next, you could read David Bivin’s New Light on the Difficult Words of Jesus: Insights from His Jewish Context (En-Gedi Resource Center, 2005).

After reading those three books, you will be prepared to read Marvin R. Wilson’s Our Father Abraham: Jewish Roots of the Christian Faith (Eerdmans and Center for Judaic-Christian Studies, 1989).
