An exceptional book... unbolts closed minds that heretofore have been, albeit innocently, indoctrinated with the image of a gentile Jesus who possesses absolutely no resemblance to the Jewish rabbi that he actually was. Lois Tverburg accurately reveals the teachings of our Messiah in their authentic context. Scriptures that Christians have read and treasured for a lifetime become fresh, new, and alive once they learn what Jesus was actually saying. I credit this book, and the book Tverburg co-authored with Ann Spangler, Sitting at the Feet of the Rabbi Jesus, for whetting my thirst for knowledge pertaining to the Jewish roots of the Christian faith. Informative and readable, scholarly without being “too heavy,” I highly recommend this book.

What a delightful and enlightening book. My heart was stirred towards our Jewish roots and how their practices are still relevant to us Christians today. In fact, often the wisdom and the practical application of Jewish ethics can teach us so much to be better Christians and disciples of Jesus.

This book says if you understand the Jewish Jesus you can understand the Bible better and it is so true. Some things have been lost in translation.

Full of information and well written. Keeps you turning the pages and learning with much clearer understanding of the whole Bible. Loved Sitting at the Feet of Rabbi Jesus, love this one and hope there is a next.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and learned much about the Jewish culture in which Jesus did his ministry. Quite often we mistakenly interpret the gospels through our Western mindset and miss the nuances and richness of the Jewish world. For instance, we often say that Jesus came to "abolish the law" as if Jesus was anti religious and anti law. Actually, Jesus came to fulfill the law.
This book is loaded with original insights into the Hebrew language. What amazed me most was how rich the original Hebrew language is. Hebrew had something like 8,000 words where the English language as around 40,000. So many words we read in Scripture have multi-layered meanings. For instance, the word, "hear" means much more than simply audibly grasping a word. In the Hebrew language it meant to hear, to act upon, to obey.
Tverberg has a wonderful way to bringing out these gems from the original Hebrew text and writes in such a way that the average layperson could read and understand and come away with a better grasp of Scripture. I highly recommend this book not only for pastors, but for any serious student of the Bible.

"Walking in the Dust of Rabbi Jesus" is structured around a series of word studies that included information on the Jewish cultural understanding of the word (beyond its dictionary meaning). The author also explained how fully understanding these words as the listener of that time would have understood them helps us to better understand the Bible. She discusses frequently used words whose full meanings don't easily translate into English words and our culture's way of thinking.
I've heard some of this information before, but I still found the book very interesting and insightful. It's easy to read and understand, and the author did a good job of bringing out points that bring deeper understanding of the Scripture. Overall, I'd highly recommend this book.
I received an ebook review copy of this book from the publisher through NetGalley.

The teachings of this book offer a unique look at the Bible that will radically change how we read scripture. By looking back at the Jewish background you find a new depth of meaning in the Scriptures. I consider this a "must read".
