Review: The Forgotten Jesus: How Western Christians Should Follow an Eastern Rabbi

Share via:

Spent some time this week with a new DVD-driven study from Robby Gallaty and The Forgotten Jesus: How Western Christians Should Follow an Eastern Rabbi is a 6 session, DVD-driven study that offers western Christians fresh insights into the life and ministry Jesus, an eastern rabbi.

You may recognize the author’s name. I’ve reviewed several of Gallaty’s books in the past, and while this is his first video-driven resource, you’ll quickly see why his teaching ministry is so appreciated at the churches in which he’s served as senior pastor. The senior pastor at Long Hollow in Hendersonville, TN, is also the founder of Replicate Ministries and the author of several books, including Growing Up, Firmly Planted, and Rediscovering Discipleship.

The Forgotten Jesus is a DVD-driven study that features the teaching of Gallaty in six 8-10 minute sessions. Very comfortable in front of the camera, participants will quickly be drawn in and set up for a great discussion.

The Bible study book includes a number of features. A short, well-written set of discussion questions and a video viewing guide anchors what happens during the group sessions. The daily Bible reading plan includes a combination of Old and New Testament references (as you might imagine). Each week also includes a set of two personal studies designed to help you understand Jesus’ words and teachings from a Hebrew mindset.

A fairly robust leader’s guide is included in the Bible study book.

Group members interested in going deeper in the study may want to order a copy of the book on which the study is based: The Forgotten Jesus: How Western Christians Should Follow an Eastern Rabbi.

Although other studies in this category are available, The Forgotten Jesus offers a very fresh take on an important truth. In order to truly see the full picture of Jesus, His teaching and ministry, we need a closer look and a deeper understanding of the Jewish mindset and context of a first century rabbi.

I loved The Forgotten Jesus and I bet your group members will too. I highly recommend it.
