Description


Many of the teachings of Jesus sound puzzling or are misunderstood because they were originally meant for listeners far removed from today's world. Listening Carefully to Jesus helps modern disciples experience Jesus' teachings anew by hearing his words just as people did in his own day.Writing out of a lifetime of scholarly and pastoral service to the church, R. E. O. White shows readers how to hear Jesus' words on their own terms, an exercise that offers fresh -- and often surprising -- results. After laying out some essential aids to understanding Jesus' style of speech and methods of instruction, White explores the body of Jesus' teachings, giving special attention to what Jesus said about issues that are important today -- for example, women's roles and race relations. This is an excellent volume for those new to the Christian life and for mature Christians seeking deeper insight into Jesus' teachings.
