In this book, Dr. Alfred Edersheim, a Jewish scholar who converted to Christianity, leads us into the heart of Palestine. He brings us to life the time of the Savior and his Apostles by showing us the scenes and characters in the midst of which were fulfilled the events of which the New  Testament offers us the inimitable record.

Study this period attentively. and this work will leave an unshakeable conviction in your mind. You will understand, without compromising the respect which is due to him, that Jesus Christ was really of his time, and that the New Testament, in its narrations, in its language and in its allusions, is strictly faithful to the time and to the circumstances in which the events are placed before our eyes.

Vous l’avez deviné, il ne s’agit pas d’un récit avec un déroulement qui nous tient sur le bout de notre chaise. Cet ouvrage réussit cependant à très bien nous mettre dans le contexte de l’époque et à nous aider à comprendre différents éléments des Écritures qui nous sont étrangers. Ce livre plaira à ceux qui ont le désir de connaître le cadre dans lequel Jésus est venu.

La société Juive à l'époque de Jésus-Christ

Très bon livre qui plonge le lecteur au cœur de la compréhension de l'histoire de l'évangile tel que vécu
