(Hardback - May 2011)
$154.99 - Online Price


This book provides an exciting reinterpretation of the sayings and actions of Jesus. Setting Him firmly in the context of first century Judaism, it asks how important the city of Jerusalem and the theological ideas attached to it were to Jesus. Dr. Tan concludes that Jesus appropriated the Zion traditions prevalent at the time. He argues skillfully that an understanding of these traditions not only helps us to understand the unifying aim behind Jesus' ministry, but also contains the key to the riddle of who Jesus thought He was.
