Item Description...
For the first time since it originally appeared, this classic work has been newly typeset in an easy-to-read modern typeface, making reading, studying, consulting easier than ever before.

The most relevant citations of Scripture, rabbinic sources, and the works of Philo and Josephus are supplied to complement Edersheim's masterful assessment of the writings of Jesus' day. This makes bland references come alive, in many cases shedding invaluable light on difficult passages or capturing the deep devotion. Edersheim brings to the task of understanding the world of Jesus and his disciples.

The scenes portrayed by Edersheim's hand come alive in the more than 50 carefully selected illustrations, maps, photos, and drawings. Enhanced both aesthetically and practically, this edition of "Sketches of Jewish Social Life" has no rival.

Edersheim's notes remain indispensable for unlocking the mysteries of the ancient world. Always sensitive to the priority of God's Word, Edersheim takes the reader back to the Bible time and again to show the authority behind his writing. Readers know they will receive reliable primary and secondary resources in these helpful notes.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Still Helpful  Nov 14, 2007
Alfred Edersheim was a Jewish convert to Christianity who lived from 1825 to 1889. He started out a Presbyterian, but later was an Anglican vicar. This book covers just about as much as could be expected about the Jewish social life at the time of Jesus. Edersheim makes use of Josephus, Philo, the Misnah, the Talmud, and the Bible to sketch out such things as what life was like in Galilee verses Jerusalem, dating and marriage, how death was handled and viewed, the Pharisees, as well as how they differed from the Essenes and Sadduccees. What is most interesting is his sketch of the Essenes, because Alfred wrote well before the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls. One might would think that this work is outdated, but truthfully, this is a minimal problem. This is a classic standard work on the subject that is written in a lucid and interesting fashion.
