You will be surprised at how the puzzling sayings of Jesus suddenly make sense when retranslated into Hebrew. Bivin and Blizzard powerfully demonstrate how Jesus' teachings in the Gospels originated in Hebrew, not Aramaic. Even if you disagree with certain points, you'll gain a greater appreciation for Jesus' Jewishness.
"This book will stir the pot of Biblical scholarship for years to come. It will force many to rethink the origin of the Gospels and the Jewishness of Jesus. Some may disagree with Bivin and Blizzard at certain points. No one, however, can ignore the soundness of their conclusion: Jesus is a Hebrew Lord whose teachings are Hebraic through and through."
—Marvin R. Wilson, Ockenga Professor of Biblical Studies, Gordon College
"I am delighted that this book shares with the English-speaking public information that is well attested and well known to Israeli scholars—namely, that Jesus' teaching was originally transmitted in Hebrew and therefore can be fully understood only if we know its Hebraic background."
—David Flusser, Professor of the History of Religion, Hebrew University of Jerusalem
"Generations of New Testament scholars trained only in the Classical world have not always been able to perceive and interpret the Jewish background of the Gospels. Understanding the Difficult Words of Jesus serves to introduce ministers and laypersons to this very important subject."
—William Sanford La Sor, Emeritus Professor of Old Testament, Fuller Theological Seminary
"I am greatly impressed with the work Bivin and Blizzard reflect in their book. They are stressing something of vital importance in hermeneutics, too long ignored by standard Biblical scholarship."
—W.T. Purkiser, Emeritus Professor, Point Loma College
"I am impressed with the way the authors have made use of archaeological finds in dealing with the question of what language was spoken in first-century Israel."
