Alfred Edersheim (March 7, 1825 – March 16, 1889) was a Jewish convert to Christianity and a Biblical scholar known especially for his book The Life and Times of Jesus the Messiah (1883). Alfred Edersheim believed that some knowledge of ancient Jewish society was necessary for the general reader of the New Testament to fully understand Jesus' life and works. Edersheim's The Life and Times of Jesus the Messiah is an informal commentary on the Four Gospels, which highlights the intellectual and religious perspectives of the people who lived during the time of Jesus. By consulting both Rabbinic Law and Talmudic writings, Edersheim paints a vivid picture of the various locations where Jesus would have walked, prayed, and preached. Not only does Edersheim provide useful geographical and political clarifications, he also offers insight into the emotional and psychological experiences of individual Biblical characters as well. From Jesus' birth in Bethlehem, to His death, resurrection, and ascension into heaven--Edersheim reports the stages of Jesus' life in exceptional detail, bringing animation and color into a set of stories that may seem distant to readers today.

About the Author:

Alfred Edersheim (1825-1889) nacido en Austria, en el seno de una familia judia acomodada, curso estudios sobre la Thora y el Talmud en escuelas rabinicas y de lenguas en la Universidad de Viena. Al emigrar a Hungria, se convirtio al cristianismo por la influencia del presbiteriano escoces John Duncan, marcho a Escocia, donde curso estudios de teologia en el New College de Edimburgo y fue ordenado ministro de la Iglesia presbiteriana en 1846. En 1875 se unio a la Iglesia Anglicana, dedicandose a dar conferencias sobre judaismo y cristianismo en la Universidad de Oxford, que finalmente se convertirian en gruesas obras literarias. Desde entonces, Edersheim ha sido mundialmente reconocido y apreciado, como el hombre que mejor ha sabido analizar y explicar al mundo cristiano el contexto de usos y costumbres judaicas que forman el contexto historico del Antiguo Testamento y Nuevo Testamento. Sus dos obras fundamentales y mundialmente conocidas, reeditadas en ingles hasta el dia de hoy son: Old Testament Bible History y The Life and Times of Jesus de Mesiah.
