The Life and Times of Jesus the Messiah
Alfred Edersheim, D. D., Ph. D.
Messiah. Alfred Edersheim is a Christian of Jewish descendent which is a historigrapher of profound insight into the Jewish religion. This work takes Jesus the Messiah, and examines the New Testament teaching in light of Jewish history and culture. This work is probably the best work out there to understanding the Life of Christ, looking at it from a Jewish perspective. Edersheim has abundant information about a tremendous amount of aspects of the Jewish culture. This compared with what the New Testament reveals to us about Christ is of great use for the serious Bible student.
