    1. The Forgotten Jesus helped me exchange my Western viewpoint of scripture for that of a Torah-faithful Jew. Gallaty doesn’t reinterpret the Bible, rather he explains the significance and symbolism of Jesus’ words, actions, and the Rabbinical methods of instruction he employed. By doing so, he made connections and provided insights which I wouldn't have made on my own.It took me a few days to tackle roughly 200 pages of text (not counting the reading plan or extensive endnotes) because I read [...]

    2. I unexpectedly read this book after it was recommended to me by my mother-in-law. I enjoy thinking about the contemporary cultural contexts in the Bible, so I thought I'd like this book. I believe we do tend to forget that Jesus had to be entirely Jewish in order to completely fulfill the Law in our place. It definitely deepens our understanding of God's Word when we understand it through the connections to the Hebraic culture.Although I did not agree with everything and some scriptural referenc [...]

    3. The Forgotten Jesus. The title of this book opens your eyes from the beginning. You begin to ask yourself what have we forgotten about Jesus? Any person that has studied the Bible in any serious manner will tell you the old adage that "context is king". However, it seems that when it comes to the New Testament, with the possible exception of the book of Hebrews, many ignore the Jewish worldview that dominated the world of Christ and His early followers. Robby Gallaty has written a book here that [...]

    4. This was such an interesting read. It places the Gospels and Jesus into the historical context of the time. It also looks Jesus' words and actions from an ancient Jewish perspective. It was very based on Scripture and had a lot of good supplements. This book really enriched my reading of Jesus' ministry and why he is the Messiah.

    5. Excellent book that delves into the Jewishness of Jesus. It certainly helped explain a lot of challenging passages of Scripture, allowing the reader to see through the religious and cultural lense of early first century Jews. I would certainly recommend it.

    6. Content is great. The order and the sequence of the book doesn't make a lot of sense to me. But there are so many profound insights about the Jewish/Middle Eastern context of Jesus. This should be required reading for any group preparing for a tour of Israel.

    7. A fun and educational read! Learning about the Jewish mind-sets, customs, and culture helped bring clarity and deeper understanding to Jesus, His mission, and His message. It's easy to recommend this one.

    8. If you want more insight into the Jewish background of Jesus and how that influences our understanding of scripture, read it. It is insightful and contains tidbits of Jewishness that will help you get the NT in light of the OT.

    9. A very insightful and interesting book that gave a new perspective to the Old Testament. I’m happy I read it, however there were a few moments when I would zone out, you have to really focus to understand and read this book.

    13. Well written, easy to read and thought provoking. However, I did find myself losing interest about half way through. The author makes a few excellent and insightful points in the first couple of chapters but then (I think) drags on a bit. The last chapter is well done with solid balanced suggestions for the believing reader.
