Series Jesus Through Middle Eastern Eyes

The Bible was written in a different time and a different place from ours. How much do we miss out on by reading the Bible using our 21st century American eyes, instead of taking into account the distinctly Middle Eastern culture where the Scriptures were written? Author Kenneth Bailey has spent more than sixty years in the Middle East and is uniquely qualified to offer insights from Middle Eastern culture. He joins Haddon Robdinson and Alice Mathews for a discussion sure to deepen our understanding of the Bible.
