In Walking in the Dust of Rabbi Jesus, Lois Tverberg challenges readers to follow their Rabbi more closely by re-examining his words in the light of their Jewish context. Doing so will provide a richer, deeper understanding of his ministry, compelling us to live differently, to become more Christ-like. We’ll begin to understand why his first Jewish disciples abandoned everything to follow him, to live out his commands. Our modern society, with its individualism and materialism, is very different than the tight-knit, family-oriented setting Jesus lived and taught in. What wisdom can we glean from his Eastern, biblical attitude toward life? How can knowing Jesus within this context shed light on his teachings for us today? In Walking in the Dust of Rabbi Jesus we’ll journey back in time to eavesdrop on the conversations that arose among the rabbis of Jesus’ day, and consider how hearing Rabbi Jesus with the ears of a first-century disciple can bring new meaning to our faith. And we’ll listen to Jewish thinkers through the ages, discovering how ideas that germinated in Jesus’ time have borne fruit. Doing so will yield fresh, practical insights for following our Rabbi’s teachings from a Jewish point of view.

Keeping the Sabbath Wholly
and
Being Well When We’re Ill
Walking in the Dust of Rabbi Jesus
is a must-read for every followerof Jesus. It takes us beyond the best-selling
Sitting at the Feet of Rabbi Jesus
, which is the starting point for any student interested in thebackground of Jesus’ message. Using the latest scholarship in thelanguages and cultures of first-century Israel and the Mediterraneanworld, Tverberg brings the results of this scholarship to Christianreaders. This book is filled with great practical wisdom that you canput to work in your life immediately.”

 Jerusalem Perspective
“In this illuminating sequel to
Sitting at the Feet of Rabbi Jesus
, Tver-berg has again done the serious student of Scripture a favor. At onceedifying and challenging, Tverberg skillfully enables her readers tounderstand and apply more of the master Teacher’s expressions intheir original Jewish setting. Let the feast begin.”
Marvin R. Wilson,
PhD, professor of biblical andtheological studies, Gordon College
 
“In
Walking in the Dust of Rabbi Jesus
, Lois Tverberg joins the disci-plined mind of a research scientist (which she is!) with the passionof a true follower of Jesus (which she is!) to give us all an invaluablewindow into the life and witness of Jesus. When I write or preach onanything that Lois has thought or written about, I always consult her.Her work is a treasure, and
Walking in the Dust of Rabbi Jesus
is a must-read for all who love Jesus and long for his appearing!”

The whole content of the book is just amazing. It simply open my eyes to the new world of the Rabbi's way, truth and life. The culture and life of the gospel truth in the context of the Jewish is profoundly drawing me closer to the life of the Rabbi Jesus. Thank you so much Lois, for bring to us such a powerful revelation of the Rabbi's HESED. Khongsngi, Steve
Nancy Harmon added this note
Understanding the Hebrew word "hear" as hear and obey gives an entirely different understanding of, "faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God". It also seems to connect and define, "We are saved by faith alone and not by works" with "faith without works is dead". Works follow, and must follow, faith when God's Word is HEARD.
