What Did Jesus Do? by William Emmanuel Abraham

The book is Abrahamís own take on Jesusís crucifixion. His insights are based on the context of Jewish law. He discusses Jesusís crucifixion along the lines of the two prerequisites needed in a sacrifice during first-century Judea: a seal of approval from a priest confirming the victimís spotlessness and the conformity of the sacrifice to the demands of Jewish law.

One has to wonder how and why Jesus had to die despite not committing any sin. William Emmanuel Abraham explains Jesusís sacrifice and resurrection from a different angle in What Did Jesus Do?

The book is Abrahamís own take on Jesusís crucifixion. His insights are based on the context of Jewish law. He discusses Jesusís crucifixion along the lines of the two prerequisites needed in a sacrifice during first-century Judea: a seal of approval from a priest confirming the victimís spotlessness and the conformity of the sacrifice to the demands of Jewish law. The actual legality of His death is also discussed in full detail in the bookís eight chapters.

Through his explanations, Abraham hopes that readers will be able to see Jesusís sacrifice and resurrection in a new light. ďOne benefit of proceeding this way is the greatly reduced need to resort to metaphysical creations as a way to understand the various phases of what Jesus did,Ē says the author. He further holds that understanding what people believe helps them stand firm in their faith.

What Did Jesus Do? is available for purchase in selected online bookstores. It was featured in LitFire Publishingís booth during the 2017 AJC Decatur Book Festival, held last September 1Ė3, at 101 East Court Square in Downtown Decatur, Georgia.
