What does it mean to follow Jesus in the way we read Scripture?

As Christians, we want to follow Jesus in his teachings and way of life, which were significantly shaped by his reading of the Jewish Scriptures. By exploring how Jesus engaged the Scriptures, we can learn better how we should read our Bibles today--following Jesus in the way we read our foundational text.

The Word Fulfilled offers in-depth explorations of how Jesus discussed seven important passages in his life and ministry, presenting a way of thinking about how we read the Bible that has resonance for anyone who desires to follow Jesus better. Through scholarship, scriptural engagement, and imaginative storytelling that illuminates what reading Scripture looked and sounded like in Jesus' context, author Michael W. Pahl helps us step back into the world of early Judaism and into synagogues and family kitchens as we encounter afresh the Word of God.
