Jesus Through Middle Eastern Eyes : Cultural Studies in the Gospels

Kenneth Bailey

Beginning with Jesus’ birth, Ken Bailey leads us on a kaleidoscopic study of Jesus in the four Gospels.

Bailey examines the life and ministry of Jesus with attention to the Lord’s Prayer, the Beatitudes, Jesus’ relationship to women and especially Jesus’ parables.

Throughout the author employs his trademark expertise as a master of Middle Eastern culture to lead us into a deeper understanding of the person and significance of Jesus, lifting away the obscuring layers of modern Western interpretation to reveal Jesus in the light of his actual historical and cultural setting.
