We have lost an essential understanding of Jesus—his Jewishness.

Through the years, our understanding of Jesus has been shaped by different cultural influences, and many Western Christians have formed an inaccurate perspective of Jesus and his teachings, beliefs, and ways of acting.

In Robby Gallaty's deeply reformative book, he reveals the essential Hebraic culture, customs, and nuances many Christians have forgotten or never learned. And he argues that as long as Jesus's Jewish context is misplaced and misunderstood, our understanding of the Bible, our faith, and the church falls far short.

The Forgotten Jesus will open your eyes to:

  • The first-century world in which Jesus lived and its connection to the time of the Old Testament.
  • The vast differences between the Western and Middle Eastern mind, and how our modern approach to understanding the Bible is influenced far more by the Greeks and Romans than by a Hebrew way of thinking.
  • Essential textual connections between the parts of the Bible that we often overlook.
  • Important Hebraic perspectives on the Messiah to point out some errors many Christians have believed through the years.
  • Why Jesus’s words on the cross about God forsaking him may have deeper meaning than we realize.

By uncovering the teaching of the first- and second-century rabbis and Christian theologians, and highlighting little-known Jewish idioms and traditions, Gallaty takes Christians on a biblical journey to rediscover a forgotten Jesus from a biblical perspective, deepening your relationship with God.

The message of Jesus may be timeless. But his life, teachings, death, and resurrection were all time-stamped. They took place in the real word at a specific time and place. In The Forgotten Jesus, Robby Gallaty helps us better understand the long-forgotten culture and context of Jesus's life and ministry so that we may better grasp the timeless beauty and power of his gospel. ---Larry Osborne, Pastor and Author, -- Larry Osborne, Pastor and Author, North Coast Church, Vista, California
