Do we really know Jesus? Do we understand his world?  Do we remember that he was a Jew?

Seeing Jesus more clearly can transform us. This six-session study guide Jesus the Jew will:

  • surprise us and sharpen our image of Jesus
  • shed glimmers of new light on the one at the heart of our faith.

Topics covered

  • social challenges – Jesus’ views on money, wealth, marriage and divorce
  • identity issues – who the public, the disciples and Jesus himself thought he was
  • spiritual resources – how prayer worked for Jesus, and can work for us. In this study guide, Bible Society has teamed up with the Biblical Studies Department of Sheffield University to bring the best of recent understandings of how Jesus was rooted in his own culture to deepen and enrich our vision of Jesus today.

Key benefits

  • A small study book intended for use by churches in home or study groups
  • Divided into six study units
  • Each study unit contains an introduction, an opening activity, a Bible encounter, suggestions for reflection and resources for further study
  • Study sessions based on relevant contemporary biblical research.
