Written in Greek about a Hebrew people before being translated into English, the Gospels tend to lose some of their force through transmission; not to mention that they are composed of parables, sayings and disjointed episodes that can be cryptic and even self-contradictory. Arthur E. Zannoni, an award-winning Christian writer, provides an intellectual believer's in-depth and revealing exploration of Jesus the man, his heritage, his teachings and his times. Each chapter appends discussion questions and suggestions for further reading.From the Back Cover:
This book will provide the view of Jesus found on the Gospels placed in the context of the Jewish and Greco-Roman world of the first century of the Common Era.
