Customer Reviews for Westminster John Knox Press The Method & Message of Jesus' Teachings

Westminster John Knox Press The Method & Message of Jesus' Teachings

The Method and Message of Jesus' Teachings was originally written as a resource for Stein's students while teaching on the life and teachings of Jesus. However, this book is a general resource for any who want to know more about the form and content of Jesus' teachings. They called him "Rabbi" meaning teacher because he spoke with authority and wisdom. Stein presents what Jesus taught and in the manner in which he taught as recorded in the Gospel accounts.

Nicholas Perrin is Associate Professor of New Testament at Wheaton College Graduate School, Illinois, and the author of Thomas and Tatian: The Relationship between the Gospel of Thomas and the Diatessaron and coeditor, with Mark Goodacre, of Questioning Q.

Robert H. Stein gives the Bible student a brief overview of Jesus' use of language in the Gospels. How I wish Christians would take the time to read this book. Many have no clue as to when a statement is to be interpreted literally or when it is overstatement or hyperbole. If you are wrestling with the "hard-sayings" of Jesus... get this book. It will help you better interpret the Scriptures.
