Admittedly, the author failed to properly leverage Hebrew terms and tint within the contexts for each chapter, which is a common result among those who have limited Judaic training and/or exposure to rabbinical academics. Howbeit, I respected the author's academic investments in this book. I, now, utilize this book, along with my personal rabbinical annotations, to teach my students. I especially note for my students my de-ciphers that identify the author's common cultural biases and the few academic short-comings. The author phrased the complexities between Judaic and the Goyiim Beloved in Messiah "... Jerusalem vs Athens ...".
western (christian) language and thought and the language and expression of thought of the Jewish people
Abraham is father of us all, as Paul wrote to the Romans (Rom. 4:16). He is father of believing Jews, and he is father of believing Gentiles (Rom. 4:11, 12). So if we belong to Christ, we are Abraham's seed (Gal. 3:29). We have that wonderful Abrahamic connection.
To many Christians are surprised Christian's roots are in Judaism. Wilson excellent balanced work gives an information in all areas of Jewish culture and what it means to us today. The book is broken down into five parts. They are:
1. A New People: Abraham's Spiritual Children
2. The Church and Synagogue in the Light of History
3. Understanding Hebrew Thought
4. Jewish Heritage and the Church: Selected Studies
5. Toward Restoring Jewish Roots
Each packed chapter includes sub points that will enhance your study and understanding of the Bible. Wilson's goal is to help the reader see the strong link between Judaism and Christianity and the Old and New Testaments. By seeing and understanding this link, it is hoped that the reader will be able to develop a more authentically Biblical lifestyle.
Study questions are included at the end of each chapter.
