"Spangler and Tverberg vibrantly introduce the reader to valuable aspects of the Jewish background, life style and teachings of the Rabbi from Galilee. Through their engaging personal style and reflective Judaic approach toward understanding biblical discipleship, Spangler and Tverberg have hit a home run. The authors draw their readers in to learn at the feet of the Rabbi and leave them begging for more." --Marvin R. Wilson, PhD, Ockenga Professor of Biblical Studies, Gordon College
Last year over a million pilgrims visited the Holy Land. Few however would have learned as much about the historical Jesus as you can by reading this terrific new work by Spangler and Tverberg. Drawing upon personal experiences as well as the latest Jewish and Christian scholarship in Israel, the authors skillfully guide you on a wonderful journey into Jesus’ first-century Jewish world---exploring his culture, his lifestyle as an itinerant sage, and his well honed rabbinic teaching methods and subtle but startling messianic claims. This book makes you really eager to sit at the Rabbi Jesus’ feet and learn from the One we joyously serve as both Messiah and Lord. I commend it to every follower of Jesus of Nazareth. -- Dwight A. Pryor
Spangler and Tverberg, with the rigor of a scientist, the drama of a story teller, and the passion of a disciple, present a stirring depiction of Jesus as a first century Jewish teacher which will greatly benefit the scholar and the lay person alike. Supported with careful analysis of ancient sources and recent archaeological discovery this study is a profound call to follow the Jesus of Scripture. I plan to use it as a text in the classes I teach and highly recommend it. -- Ray Vander Laan, Author
For disciples of Yeshua (Jesus) who know little about his Jewishness, including his rabbinic and Hebraic teaching style, Sitting at the Feet of Rabbi Jesus is the place for them to start. Spangler and Tverberg have created the perfect introduction for the uninitiated. This book will have a deep impact on the thinking of ordinary Christians through the world. -- David Bivin, Author
If we could turn the clock back to the Jewish world of the first century, what would it be like to follow in the footsteps of Jesus the Jew? This highly readable work is rooted in rabbinic sources and reflects current Gospel research. Spangler and Tverberg vibrantly introduce the reader to valuable aspects of the Jewish background, life style and teachings of the Rabbi from Galilee. Through their engaging personal style and reflective Judaic approach toward understanding biblical discipleship, Spangler and Tverberg have “hit a home run.” The authors draw their readers in to learn at the feet of the Rabbi and leave them begging for more. -- Marvin R. Wilson, Ph. D., Professor

When I was around twelve years of age I needed corrective lenses. That meant I was going to get a pair of prescription eye glasses for the first time. They were big, unflattering and upon putting them on for the first time, my perception of gravity, that is, the experience of how my feet hit the pavement as I walked greatly changed and colors became for the first time robust right before my eyes!
Reading “Sitting at the Feet of Rabbi Jesus” for those who are not Jewish such as myself, was like my depth perception being drastically changed when those eye glasses went on. Yet, like those robust colors that came to life, so it is, to know Jesus as a Jewish Rabbi.
I recommend this book to Jews and Gentiles (non-Jewish people) alike. The vivid tapestry of His Jewishness is quite captivating and the Jewish culture and people who He was intimately acquainted with and surrounded by will both challenge and intrigue you.
Like most books on the subject of God or Jesus of Nazareth, one reading will never suffice. The first reading is both engrossing and a bit of a struggle. Every other reading, will produce more and more affect to a desired conclusion—to know this Jewish Rabbi that still intrigues and confounds the world 2000 years later.
Me and my best friend did a bible study with it that lasted a good two months or so.
It puts you in the dust of the Rabi. As if you were walking directly behind him so closely you get covered in his dust.
If you are a teacher yourself or even want to understand teaching... this book is perfect.
It sets forth great understanding of rabbinic teaching and how Jesus taught his disciples.
The reading is fun, easy to understand, and pulls you in.
If you like CS Lewis, Ray Vanderlaan, or anything that brings the Jewishness of the bible into reality.
This is a great book for you. I'm not doing this book enough justice. So please buy it and see for yourself.
In fact. I would buy this book for anyone.
Except you... lol
Now go buy it yourself!
