When the Good News Gets Even Better
Walk through the gospel narratives in Hebrew sandals.
Time. Place. Customs. Any historian will tell you that those are three very important words for understanding the story of mankind. But what if we’re trying to understand the Savior of mankind, born a Hebrew, who lived, preached, taught and healed in the first century?
Author Neb Hayden says looking at the Gospels through the windows of Jewish culture and customs makes all the difference. The biographies of Jesus were intended to be read a certain way. The places, people, and emotions specific to that age provide a unique view.
This study provides just such a window, a way to see the gospels as the original audience did, bringing a fresh and thoroughly relevant context to the life of Jesus. Using a twelve-week format, this study combines all four gospels into one comprehensive and chronological narrative, allowing for personal or small-group use.
Come and experience the good news as it gets even better!
