Lent 10: Blivin and Blizzard, Understanding the Difficult Words of Jesus

Bivin and Blizzard operate within the Center for Judaic-Christian Studies, which helps develop the Hebrew nature and roots of the origination of the Christian faith.  This book is intended to be the first in a series of books on understanding Jesus’ words in a Hebrew context.  Their premise is that the gospels were originally Hebrew, but the oldest manuscripts we have today are in Greek, so the gospels and even Christianity have been slanted in a Greek though pattern.

Really the book is tedious, but the appendix is novel and insightful.  I didn’t underline or note even one thing though…which should tell you how useful I found this book…
