An approach to Jesus's recorded words and teachings through his native language, Aramaic, answers many questions clearly and consistently, even if unexpectedly, no matter which Gospel you have in your hands.
From the Introduction:
"The challenges we face today are not in essence different from those of our ancestors: relationships, love, knowledge, work, and purpose still claim our main attention. Yet the implications of these challenges for the survival of humanity and the planet seem more acute. We seem to know more, yet our consciousness has evolved in such a way that makes it difficult to see what the purpose of life really is. How do we live more fully in the moment, solving the problems before us?
"Jesus's teachings have been used historically to fuel what became modern Western culture, with all its pluses and minuses. At the same time, viewed through his native language, the same teachings provide a solution to our culture's greatest challenges, pointing the way toward a proper use of our human individuality and will."
Through expansions of Aramaic's multiple meanings as well as guided contemplations, Revelations of the Aramaic Jesus provides a guide to transformation through the way of the prophet of Nazareth. It shows how Jesus's deepest teachings address contemporary challenges, such as our relationships with nature and each other, as well as the purpose of life itself.
Revelations of the Aramaic Jesus looks at frequently asked questions such as:
- Is Jesus talking about a personal God or an impersonal one? Or both?
- What did the words blessing, grace, and happiness mean to Yeshua, and what do they mean for us today?
- How do evil and injustice fit into Jesus's view of life? And what is his remedy?
Revelations of the Aramaic Jesus is a guide to living an authentic interior life without dogma and a spiritual path that makes you more comfortable in your own, providing a sense of meaning and purpose.
