A reworking of the classic book by Alfred Edersheim, The LIfe and Times of Jesus The Messiah (1883). Edersheim was a converted Jew and a Biblical scholar who wrote his book in 1883. However, for modern readers, it is a pretty dense, difficult and long read.. Steve has rewritten the book for 21st-century readers by modernising the text and substantially reducing its length to a single volume

The gospels in their first-century Jewish context:
Over the centuries, layers of interpretation have been added to the gospels.
Academics, without the depth of understanding of the first-century Jewish culture, have given diverse explanations of gospel events.
It is only when understanding the Jewish culture of the time in which the gospels were written that Jesus’ words can be more clearly grasped, their cultural context bringing greater clarity.
Alfred Edersheim’s 1883 classic, ‘The Life and Times of Jesus the Messiah’ addressed this problem and for the past 150 years has been regarded by scholars as unsurpassed. However, this huge tome written in intricate academic language has been a barrier to the average modern reader.
Steve, a Messianic author of over thirty Christian books, has now taken the text and consolidated it using his easily accessible and direct style. This scholarly treasure trove has now been opened for everyone to read.
Hidden riches are re-discovered, historical and religious events regain their full significance and cultural references of the time are made plain.
Preserving the integrity of the Edersheim original, Steve Maltz has provided a significant key to understanding the gospels as they were meant to be.
