Praying the Priorities of Jesus. The Lord's Prayer Through First Century Eyes


Praying the Priorities of Jesus. The Lord's Prayer Through First Century Eyes

The Lord's Prayer has been recited from the time of Jesus down to the present. What does it mean to pray this ancient prayer today? This book seeks to answer that question by asking how those sitting on the mountainside listening to Jesus might have interpreted the prayer. When Jesus spoke of our Father in heaven what did this signal to his original hearers? What did it mean for them to pray for their daily bread or the forgiveness of debts? Having placed the prayer in this context, we discover nuances we may have previously missed and will gain a clearer understanding of what it is and how it is Jesus calls us to pray.
