The Jewish Roots of Acts By Joseph Shulam - 2 Book Set
The Commentary's primary purpose is to provide the reader a reading of the text of Acts informed by its Jewish context and has a user-friendly format.
The Acts of the Apostles is the second part of Luke’s masterpiece history of the life of Yeshua and the first generation of the Church and its leaders such as Paul and Peter. Besides being a book of history, it is also a Spirit-inspired work that contains many important lessons for the Church of today, especially for those believers seeking the Restoration of the Church with its Jewish Roots.
This commentary will help the scholar or layperson seeking to navigate the colorful cultures and contexts of the ancient Mediterranean world to which the apostles spread the message of Yeshua and understand the “how” and the “why” of their methods of spreading an essentially Jewish faith to a pagan world.
Shulam and LeCornu especially highlight the importance of the Diaspora Jewish context and its influence on the early Body of Messiah through comparing the beliefs and statements found in Acts to other ancient Jewish sources and ideas. As the reader journeys through the complexities and cultural contexts of the ancient world portrayed in Acts, he discovers that it still contains a wealth of parallels and lessons for our own time and culture. A deeper and richer understanding of the first followers of Yeshua the Messiah awaits those who truly investigate the Acts of the Apostles in this two volume set that will stir anyone’s thirst for greater knowledge of the Bible and its Jewish context.
