A Jewish Commentary on the Gospels Volume 1

SKU: 9781943852802 Categories: , , Tags: , ,


It is inarguable that few names are as well known in the world as the name of Jesus, but who was he, really?

There are many worthy commentaries of the Gospels in existence, but most of them do not seek out to present Jesus as he appeared on Earth—during his early life, in his culture, and among his own Jewish people.

What happened over the ages that caused the world to begin to see Jesus as a son of Greece instead of an observant Jew? What have we lost by seeing his life and work out of context?

Presenting Jesus, the Son of Israel – a Jewish Commentary on the Gospels reintroduces us to the Jesus, whose life’s mission was to bring light those around him and to bring them closer to the almighty Creator of the Universe.

Volume 1 of this commentary explores the conception, uncovers the true dialogue about the virgin birth and reveals the incredible unknown life of Jesus the child.

Who were these mysterious shepherds, and why were they unlike all the other shepherds? Were the Wise Men really Babylonian Sorcerers? How did they recognize the birth of the King of the Jews?

What is this undeniable connection Jesus has to the Feast of Tabernacles, and why are the Gospels so silent regarding his Jewish education?

We meet John the Baptist and discover how his message was skewed by early interpreters, and see how in some ways Jesus seems to relive the history of the Nation of Israel.

Presenting Jesus, the Son of Israel – a Jewish Commentary on the Gospels answers all these questions and brings to light the beautiful intricacies of early Judaism and the effect they had on the life of Jesus, whose existence and purpose changed the world in a way in which no other has ever done since.

    Discovering the Jewish Jesus I never knew.
    Billy Graham endorsed a book written by one of his favorite authors, Phillip Yancy, ” The Jesus I never knew”. Rivi Litvin’s book presents Jesus in the Judaism of his day, I never knew.

  3. PH

    Great book.
    Would use individually or for group studies to better understand the Jewish perspective of the Bible. Mrs.Litvin has been providing insights on the Bible for many years. I always learn something new due to her knowledge and ability to translate and convey the Jewish text.
    A must-read for anyone interested in better understanding of the Bible.

    Fabulous Insight
    The author is very scholarly and has done the research. In order to understand a text, one has to consider the time, culture, language, idioms, religion, customs and politics of the time. It is eye-opening to view the text in its proper context in order to understand the words 2,000 years later.
    Fabulous read!

  5. Rose

    This book brings a deeper understanding of Jesus
    If you want to really understand who Jesus was in the context of His life on earth, you need to understand that context. Rivi Litvin not only understands that context since she was born and lived in Israel most of her life, but she also has a special spiritual gift from God to know all the teachings of the Jewish texts and traditions and be able to present the Jewish perspective. She is an amazing teacher and I always am deeply moved by her teaching. Now she has written this book that brings great opportunity to all who buy it to gain from her great knowledge.
