The author's aim is to help thinking lay persons and people preparing sermons to apply NT ethics within a modern culture, while still remaining faithful to the text - by taking into account the ancient culture. This is high quality scholarship at a very accessible level. Over the centuries Jesus's teaching on ethical matters has often become muted and distorted. This book sets the matter straight. Here are 30 areas of ethical debate: in each context Jesus offered insights which would have left his contemporaries agape.
Arranged into 3 Parts: Part 1: Scandals in Jesus' Life Part 2: Scandals Among Jesus' Friends Part 3: Scandals in Jesus' Teaching
