The Devotional Life of the ChristianJuly 15, 2020
Making use of early Syriac and Arabic Christian literature on the Gospels, Middle Eastern culture specialist Kenneth Bailey explores and examines the life and ministry of Jesus with attention to the Lord’s Prayer, the Beatitudes, Jesus’ relationship to women and especially Jesus’ parables. Bailey offers a deeper understanding of the person and significance of Jesus and lifts away the blurring modern Western interpretation to reveal a historically and culturally clear Jesus. Biblical quotations are from Bailey’s own translations, as he seeks to contribute new perspectives from the Eastern Tradition to the knowledge of the person of Jesus Christ.
