About the Authors
  • Originally published in 1917, this book applies Jewish approaches to Scripture to New Testament texts in order to balance the teaching of Jesus with that of Pharasaic Judaism. Abrahams heavily references C. G. Montefiore's two-volume commentary on the Synoptic Gospels, and delves deeply into the historical background to many of the key stories and events of the Gospels, such as ancient divorce and the importance of fasting. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in the Jewish context of the Gospels.
