The Jesus Scandals Why he shocked his contemporaries (and still shocks today)

by David Instone-Brewer

The Jesus Scandals Why he shocked his contemporaries (and still shocks today) Synopsis

The author's aim is to help thinking lay persons and people preparing sermons to apply NT ethics within a modern culture, while still remaining faithful to the text - by taking into account the ancient culture. This is high quality scholarship at a very accessible level. Over the centuries Jesus's teaching on ethical matters has often become muted and distorted. This book sets the matter straight. Here are 30 areas of ethical debate: in each context Jesus offered insights which would have left his contemporaries agape.
