Jesus was a man of prayer. He stayed up all night in prayer, arose early to pray, and taught his disciples to pray. How did people pray in Jesus’ time, and how did he probably pray? Understanding Jewish prayer adds depth and meaning to Jesus’ teachings on the subject.
The Richness of Jewish Prayer – We know from history what prayer style Jesus would have used. Christians will find that some of these traditions that Jews still practice today will greatly enrich their prayer life.
For Everything a Blessing – In the most ordinary things the rabbis of Jesus’ day and earlier found ways of praising God, and these blessings have God at their center.
The Amidah Prayer: A New Translation – The prayer Jesus taught his disciples, The Lord’s Prayer, is likely an abbreviated version of the Amidah, a central prayer of Jewish religious life.
