The Christian faith was birthed out of Judaism, and this handbook will help you trace the roots of your beliefs. Explore Old Testament background, Second Temple Judaism, the life of Jesus, the New Testament, the early Jewish followers of Jesus, the historical interaction between Judaism and Christianity, and the contemporary period.
 
No longer is it a novelty to mention that Jesus was Jewish. In fact, Jewish roots could be a classification for studies and resources. What does the Jewishness of Jesus really mean, and why is it important?
 
This collection of articles seeks to address those questions and while serving as a comprehensive, yet concise, primer on the Jewish roots of the Christian faith. A Handbook on the Jewish Roots of the Christian Faith has thirteen chapters, most of which are divided into four or five articles. It is in the “handbook” format, meaning that each article is brief but informative. The thirteen chapters are grouped into four major sections: (1) The Soil, (2) The Roots, (3) The Trunk, and (4) The Branches.
