Book Overview

In recent years, Christians everywhere are rediscovering the Jewish roots of their faith.

Every year at Easter time, many believers now celebrate Passover meals (known as Seders) seeking to understand exactly what happened at Jesus’ final Passover, the night before he was crucified.
  
Jesus and the Jewish Roots of the Eucharist shines fresh light on the Last Supper by looking at it through Jewish eyes. Using his in-depth knowledge of the Bible and ancient Judaism, Dr. Brant Pitre answers questions such as: What was the Passover like at the time of Jesus? What were the Jewish hopes for the Messiah? What was Jesus’ purpose in instituting the Eucharist during the feast of Passover? And, most important of all, what did Jesus mean when he said, “This is my body… This is my blood”?

To answer these questions, Pitre explores ancient Jewish beliefs about the Passover of the Messiah, the miraculous Manna from heaven, and the mysterious Bread of the Presence. As he shows, these three keys—the Passover, the Manna, and the Bread of the Presence—have the power to unlock the original meaning of the Eucharistic words of Jesus. Along the way, Pitre also explains how Jesus united the Last Supper to his death on Good Friday and his Resurrection on Easter Sunday.           

Inspiring and informative, Jesus and the Jewish Roots of the Eucharist is a groundbreaking work that is sure to illuminate one of the greatest mysteries of the Christian faith: the mystery of Jesus’ presence in “the breaking of the bread.”

    This book is very readable and pulls together ancient Jewish tradition to the early church tradition for Holy Communion. I think this is a "must read" for all denominations of the Christian faith. God Bless.

    Every chapter is awesome! Read this book today...I mean it...Today! And then hand it to a friend who has fallen away from the Eucharist or has never experienced it before...
  • Great book, no footnotes

    I highly recommend this book. It blew my mind and will read it again and refer to it. My only complaint is that the footnote numbers do not appear in the text. If you tap on the note numbers in the end notes section, you are taken to the page where the note is referenced, but no footnote number appears on the page.
