4.0 out of 5 stars Truer perspective of Jesus' life, January 10, 2006
This review is from: The Jesus I Never Knew (Paperback)
Having grown up in a Protestant home, it seemed at times that the Old Testament was almost off limits. However, remember that when Jesus walked the earth, the Tenauch (Old Testament) was the entirety of the word of God. Yancey does a nice job exploring the reality of Jesus' life, including rituals, customs and culture. This contrasts with the more typical rose-colored view of the blond hair, blue-eyed Jesus of many 20th century Christians. I walked away from the book wondering why Christians do not continue to celebrate biblically commanded festivals like Passover, Purim, etc. This is a well thought-out book written by a Gentile believer.
