Book Review: Revelations of the Aramaic Jesus

Revelations of the Aramaic Jesus: The Hidden Teachings on Life and Death by Neil Douglas-Klotz is a fresh look at the teachings of Jesus through an ancient Aramaic language-informed study of the words Yeshua chose. Douglas-Klotz brings a depth and breadth of meaning to the familiar lines in the gospels by exploring the multiple meanings Aramaic words hold and expanding our understanding.

I was really impressed by the blend of scholarship and contemplative reflection Douglas-Klotz offers in this book, which opened up my understanding of so many familiar passages to make room for mining the depths. I know I will be returning to this book and deepening into the reflections offered again and again.
