Understanding Paul in his Historical, Cultural and Jewish Context
Dr. Richard Booker
Getting to Know the Paul of the Bible
As opposed to the Paul you think you know
The Apostle Paul is probably the most misunderstood writer in history. Many Christians and Jews believe that Paul was an anti-Law Jew who established a Gentile brand of Christianity that was different from his ancient faith. We learn otherwise when we study Paul’s writings from his own words within the context of his biblical, cultural and Hebraic world.
In this incredibly revealing book, Dr. Richard Booker helps us understand Paul, a Jew from Tarsus, a Roman citizen, a Pharisee of Pharisees and student of Gamaliel who encountered his Jewish Messiah and whose writings have changed the world.
This book will change everything you thought you knew about Saul of Tarsus known by the world as the Apostle Paul. You will read his letters through the eyes of a first-century Jew who was called by God to explain Hebraic concepts to a Greco-Roman world.
