With 13 of the New Testament's 27 books bearing his seal and signature, Paul stands out as the New Testament's principal interpreter of what it means to be Christian. In this companion book to the TV series In the Footsteps of the Rabbi from Tarsus, Dr. Jeffrey Seif -- a Messianic-Jewish Theologian -- looks closely at Paul and the fact that the major Christian interpreter lived, acted, and thought as a Jewish rabbi. St. Paul, a rabbi?
To make his case, Jeff takes us into the pagan world where Paul ministered and chronicles Paul's movements, assessing what Paul's historian Luke said about them. Then, Jeff examined Paul's divinely inspired letters to early church congregations to hear Paul out in his own words. In considering what Luke said about Paul's travels and what Paul said in Paul's writings, Jeff brings various Jewish insights to bear, enabling readers to envision the Apostle Paul as the Jewish rabbi that he really was. This book will revolutionize your understanding of the major Christian Apostle! You'll see him more clearly and develop a crisper glimpse of what it actually means to be a follower of Israel's Messiah -- the One we call Jesus.
