Most helpful customer reviews on Amazon. This book is quite an undertaking to read. I am 30 Percent through at the moment. The value in this study is to learn the culture, geographic, political, and tradition setting of the Jews in Jerusalem during the time Jesus Christ lived in that area. It sheds light on many encounters he had with both the common people and the Jewish religious leaders of the day. A good deal of the book deals with the physical geography of Israel and records the sight and sounds Christ would have encountered on his walk from Galilee to Jerusalem, for example.
I recommend it for any serious student of scripture. When did Jesus know He is the Son of God?
What did He know, when and how!!!!!!! This book has credible answers to questions we have wondered about all our Christian lives. I haven't gotten to that part of the book but I can see it clearly even now. Also marvelous things such as: Open Preview See a Problem?

Respected Scholars" might not actually rely on everything that Edersheim suggests.? Lists with This Book. I started reading this book like I would read any other book on my reading list and approximately six months later I was still reading it. This is one of the most researched books I think I have ever read or heard of.
When I 1st started reading it, I thought since it was written in the late 's that there would be some modern day changes, I am wrong this book is as pertinent and and full of in-depth knowledge that stands today as it did then. I didn't take the time to study all the reference I started reading this book like I would read any other book on my reading list and approximately six months later I was still reading it.
I didn't take the time to study all the reference material, but I did read all the reference scriptures and Indexes in the book. I learned so much of scripture and of the life of Jesus and old testament Messianic prophecy, and I am hungry for more. I intend to reread this book at a chapter a week, since each chapter is about 15 or 20 pages at the most, and I am going to study this as a bible lesson acquiring all the reference material that i can get, this book is worthy reading and studying the right way.
This is a great study tool View all 3 comments. Nov 28, Doug May rated it it was amazing. Ok I finished this monumental work and feel like I have scaled everest. It took nearly four years of devotional reading spending part of my shabat reading the scriptural background for each chapter from the gospels and then edersheim's perspective. The result is a deeper conviction in the historicity of the gospels and a strengthened faith.
I honestly feel elated having just completed the resurrection chapter of book five with much more of a sense of having lived the events in the life of jesu Ok I finished this monumental work and feel like I have scaled everest. I honestly feel elated having just completed the resurrection chapter of book five with much more of a sense of having lived the events in the life of jesus. Edersheim was both a scholar and a pastor so the text is written with a devotion that conveys more than mere knowledge that could puff up.
Instead the book challenges and drives the reader to a greater love of Jesus. There is nothing lost in century since its writing as the truths and Spirit behind them are as fresh as when written. The Holy Spirit is not in the space time continuim and that will be abundantly clear to the reader. Aug 18, Harold Taylor rated it really liked it. A converted Jewish scholar of the first century customs he illuminates the life of Christ with insight unavailable to the average reader.
You can look this book up for yourself at http: Particularly enlightening is his material on the birth of Christ. He delves into who the magi really were and the political implications to Herod. He also illuminates who the Shepherds were and their connections in Jerusalem which so few of us would ever get to hear about. This will always be on my bookshelf.
Sep 02, Michele rated it liked it Shelves: A labor of love! Not sure I've ever studied my scriptures so much before. I loved the first book, but to read pages and then realize there was a second book with pages, just about killed me. He is an incredible man and there are too many dog-earred pages to explain so I will just share a few of his deep thoughts that impressed me. Page talks about how Rabbi's would dress up in a garb that would get them recognized.
They believed they should dress up to show people they were teachers. Love this idea, because I've always believed that when you are up there in front of people you should look your very best. Not to impress people, but to feel confident about yourself and give people a pleasant experience while watching you.
I think it's a sign of respect for your audience. That with Him there is no difficulty, since all is His, and all may be ours, since He has come for our help and is in the ship. One thing only He wonders at-the shortcomings of our faith; and one thing only makes it impossible for Him to help- our unbelief.
Is that not beautiful? What wonderful things books are. I felt like just reading him increased my brain power to the nth degree.
Sharing in the thoughts of a deep thinker,magic! No degree of improper affection can ever make affection wrongful. Making the Sabbath a delight, special Sabbath dress, choicest food, inexspensive dishes. After, all hypocrisy was only self deception. Is that how simple it is? This line will stick with me a long time! This book was a huge challenge for me, but very worth it. Oct 27, Karin rated it liked it Shelves: Alfred Edersheim, who was born a Jew and didn't convert until grown, had an incredible knowledge of Jewish theology, manners and customs, and so on--not just the Talmud, but rabbinic writings over the centuries.
For that the book could merit 5 stars. But in many ways he seemed isolated from his peers in some of his conclusions. There are other difficulties with the book, however, and this review is not going to be long or exhaustive, nor am I going to expound on all these points. I am happy to have finally read all of it. I think the first of the five books in this book that covers them all, is by far the best since it sticks to what Edersheim knew so well.
Something that did not affect my review, but was very annoying in this 4th printing of the volume pictured I hope that doesn't change are the large number of typos, particularly near the end. Loin for Lion, tow for two numerous times, and many more--and I was reading this on the fast side so probably didn't catch them all. I hope that the publisher has corrected these; no point in sending in a list since no doubt it's gone through more printings, etc.
I am happy to have finally read this, and may refer to it at times, but I was rather disappointed after being told how important this book was to read. Feb 08, Manuel Monroy Correa rated it it was amazing Shelves: La actualidad de sus comentarios ha sido cuestionada en algunos aspectos. Jun 21, Bill Underwood rated it liked it. This is the ultimate guide of the customs and details of Israel during Jesus' day. Not an easy read It makes me wonder if Edersheim was getting paid by the word.
But if you can wade through the verbiage, it is well worth it. Dec 27, John Avery rated it it was amazing. I enjoy books that present the Jewish background of the Christian faith. Alfred Edersheim's book is an essential volume on my bookshelf.
He takes the reader through the gospel story in a chronological manner. The book is written from the perspective of a man who traveled through the land and saw the places that Jesus visited. He did so long before the culture of the Middle East had been radically altered as it has been today by modern technology and new political boundaries. Edersheim was a Je I enjoy books that present the Jewish background of the Christian faith. Edersheim was a Jew who became a Christian minister and devoted his life research to writing this book. The result is a classic. His style is certainly 19th century; he loves long descriptive passages about the land and culture.
But his prose is well written and rarely becomes tedious. However, I am puzzled why the book has not received more attention outside of England. I suspect that some of his research has been superceded by more recent discoveries though I do not know that for sure. I recommend that anyone reading this book should find more recent similar works and do a comparison. Dec 30, K. Per his request I bought this for my husband for Christmas.
He says he doesn't have time for it quite yet, so I'm stealing it. It may take me the next 4 years or so: I'm just going to go for a sub-chapter at a time, they're fairly short. The author's goal was illuminate the people and times when Christ was alive. I'm thinking that will be a big help with scriptural understanding etc.

Was recommended to Ross by his mentor, who said it was one of the books that inspired Talmage when he was writing "Jesus the Christ. I finally made it to Chapter 2 today! I have found this book really quite difficult, parts of it indigestible, parts of it fascinating. Up till now, it's been all about the history of the Jews and Jerusalem pre-Christ. Chapter 2 begins with a comparison between the Jerusalem of Solomon and the Jerusalem of Herod.
