    The World Jesus Knew

    Beliefs and Customs from the Time of Jesus

    This book explains, in lay terms, the world that Jesus inhabited. Housing, education, clothing, languages, terrain and climate, agricultural methods, cultural assumptions, religious customs, festivals, houses of worship, Scriptures, opposition, and political currents--all of these formed the soil in which Jesus the man was nurtured.

    Each chapter covers a distinct aspect, and opens a whole new range of understanding which we are otherwise likely to miss. For instance, a rich symbolism concerned with water and light, and linked with the Feast of Tabernacles, underlies John 7 and 8, much of which has probably escaped us. Previously published by Monarch Books and then Moody Publishers, this classic reference work, unavailable for several years, is making a dramatic return.

    Anne Punton spent 12 years working for the Church's Ministry among Jewish People (CMJ) in Israel, and has lectured extensively on the Jewish roots of the Christian faith. She lives in East Yorkshire, England.
