Walking in the Dust of Rabbi Jesus Audiobook

Walking in the Dust of Rabbi Jesus: How the Jewish Words of Jesus Can Change Your Life

In this unabridged audio download of Walking in the Dust of Rabbi Jesus, Lois Tverberg challenges readers to follow their Rabbi more closely by re-examining his words in the light of their Jewish context. Doing so will provide a richer, deeper understanding of his ministry, compelling us to live differently, to become more Christ-like. We’ll begin to understand why his first Jewish disciples abandoned everything to follow him, to live out his commands. Our modern society, with its individualism and materialism, is very different than the tight-knit, family-oriented setting Jesus lived and taught in.

Publisher's Summary

In this unabridged audio download of Walking in the Dust of Rabbi Jesus, Lois Tverberg challenges readers to follow their Rabbi more closely by re-examining his words in the light of their Jewish context. Doing so will provide a richer, deeper understanding of his ministry, compelling us to live differently, to become more Christ-like. We’ll begin to understand why his first Jewish disciples abandoned everything to follow him, to live out his commands. Our modern society, with its individualism and materialism, is very different than the tight-knit, family-oriented setting Jesus lived and taught in. What wisdom can we glean from his Eastern, biblical attitude toward life? How can knowing Jesus within this context shed light on his teachings for us today? In Walking in the Dust of Rabbi Jesus we’ll journey back in time to eavesdrop on the conversations that arose among the rabbis of Jesus’ day, and consider how hearing Rabbi Jesus with the ears of a first-century disciple can bring new meaning to our faith. And we’ll listen to Jewish thinkers through the ages, discovering how ideas that germinated in Jesus’ time have borne fruit over time. Doing so will yield fresh, practical insights for following our Rabbi’s teachings from a Jewish point of view.

    "Insight on 1st Century Rabbinical Practice"
    What did you love best about Walking in the Dust of Rabbi Jesus?

    Thought-provoking. Great background to understand the cultural context of the Gospels better. It was easy to follow. About half of the material was truly new to me, but every nugget that was new was priceless!

    "Great New Insight On Familiar Teachings"
    If you could sum up Walking in the Dust of Rabbi Jesus in three words, what would they be?

    Just finished chapter 9 of this book today, a chapter on praying with "chutzpah." Lois Tverberg provides some great new insights for familiar teachings of Jesus. After providing some helpful historical, linguistic and literary context information, she offers VERY relevant practical applications of these familiar passages in ways you may not have considered before. Walking in the Dust of Rabbi Jesus has added value to my understanding of Jesus' teachings. And, the book has challenged me towards spiritual growth in important areas. I still have about six more chapters to listen to (purchased the book on Audible.com), but at this point, I am loving it!

    "Excellent for the Jesus thirsty follower"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    With the belief that the bridegroom is coming, I am making every effort possible to know about about the groom. Ann gives us great insight on understanding the Jewish culture and how it pertains to our closed minded western view of the world. The ignorant are not ignorant because they don't desire knowledge. They are ignorant because they don't know that they don't know. Well, I have been ignorant to MANY things.
    This book opened my eyes to a broader spectrum of knowledge. I will never read the bible the same again. Keep in mind, she does put her opinion in from time to time, but based on the Hebrew language and understanding of alone, helps me to better receive what I am writing. Wonderful Read!


    What other book might you compare Walking in the Dust of Rabbi Jesus to and why?

    Sitting at the feet of Rabbi Jesus

    A worthwhile read.


    Any additional comments?

    For anyone wanting to learn more about Jesus and about the time he was on earth this book is very informative and interesting. The narrator had an easy listening voice too!

    Story
    "Trite recollections with little scholarship"
    Would you try another book from Lois Tverberg and/or Pam Ward?

    Tververg no, Ward maybe


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    A more scholarly treatment from Jewish perspective of the life of Jesus


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Too few to recollect; stopped listening 3/4 through book


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Walking in the Dust of Rabbi Jesus?

    Cut out the personal analogies (ie, praying for her cat) and stick it rabbinical interpretations of the life of this Jewish peasant

    "Context for Jesus"

    Plain words to describe the Jewish perception of Jesus and what he taught. Gives great food for thought.
