Steadfast Media Pick of the Week — Contextual Jesus

Contextual Jesus

Here is an with Dr. Ken Bailey, author of “Jesus Through Middle Eastern Eyes: Cultural Studies in the Gospels,” discussing the cultural context of Jesus.

We sometimes miss some of the meaning of what Jesus did and taught because we look at him with 21st century western preconceptions. The interview starts by discussing the Story of the Nativity and how we can gain a deeper understanding by knowing about 1st Century Middle Eastern culture.
