Kenneth E. Bailey

Lloyd James

Unabridged Audiobook

Release Date
May 2020
16 hours 27 minutes
Kenneth E. Bailey examines the life and ministry of Jesus with attention to the Lord's Prayer, the Beatitudes, Jesus's relationship to women, and especially Jesus's parables. Through it all, Bailey employs his trademark expertise as a master of Middle Eastern culture to lead listeners into a deeper understanding of the person and significance of Jesus within his own cultural context. With a sure but gentle hand, Bailey lifts away the obscuring layers of modern Western interpretation to reveal Jesus in the light of his actual historical and cultural setting. This entirely new material from the pen of Ken Bailey is a must-have for any student of the New Testament. If you have benefited from Bailey's work over the years, this book will be a welcome and indispensable addition to your library. If you are unfamiliar with Bailey's work, this book will introduce you to a very old yet entirely new way of understanding Jesus.

Really insightful explanation of how Middle East culture relates to the parables. I enjoyed this book as it challenges us to really look deeper into meaning of forgiveness and love of our neighbor .
