One of the best-known references on the life of Christ is now available in one unabridged, competely updated  volume!

Alfred Edersheim’s The Life and Times of Jesus the Messiah is a storehouse of information on the background of the New Testament. This classic work successfully portrays the streets, the marketplaces, the religious conflicts, the people, and the places of Jesus’ earthly ministry.

This updated edition features text reset in modern print and several new maps and illustrations. In addition, Roman numerals have been changed to Arabic numbers, Greek and Hebrew words are transliterated, and the indexes are corrected and updated.

Thirty-seven chapters explore the miracles and teachings of Jesus’ early ministry.

Book 4 – The Descent into the Valley of Humiliation
A history of the latter part of Jesus’ ministry from the Transfiguration to the journey to Jerusalem.
