What the Jewishness of Jesus can Teach Christians about Prayer. Prayer is simply talking with God. Nonetheless, the grown men who followed Jesus felt as if they had something yet to learn. As true disciples, they wanted to pray just as their Rabbi did. Now Jesus was praying in a certain place, and when he finished, one of his disciples said to him, "Lord, teach us to pray, as John taught his disciples." (Luke 11:1) In ancient Judaism, disciples sought not only to learn their master’s teachings and interpretations; they endeavored to imitate their rabbi in every detail. Rabbi Yeshua taught, “A disciple is not above his teacher, but everyone when he is fully trained will be like his teacher” (Luke 6:40). What does prayer look like in a Jewish context? How did Jesus pray? This book provides Christians with an insider’s view of Jewish prayer. Learn how the beauty and wisdom of Jesus’ own people can inspire all his disciples to draw near to our Father in heaven.
