    Book details

These have known that Thou hast sent me. JOHN xvii. 25. VERY different was the reception which awaited Jesus on the farther shore. The poor heathens of Decapolis had welcomed Him with reverent enthusiasm: the haughty Pharisees of Jerusalem met Him with sneering hate. It may be that, after this period of absence, His human soul yearned for the only resting-place which He could call a home. Entering into His little vessel, He sailed across the lake to Magdala.1 It is probable that He purposely avoided sailing to Bethsaida or Capernaum, which are a little north of Magdala, and 1S t. Mark says (viii. 10), the parts of Dalinanutha. Nothing is known about Dalmanutha, though uncertain identifications of it have been attempted; noris anything known of Magadan, which is found in Matt. xv. 39, according to ,B, D, but does not seem a probable reading. If Magadan is a confused form of Megiddo, that must be an error, for Megiddo is in the middle of the plain of Esdraelon. Yet even in Mark the Codex Bezae reads Magadan. Eusebius and Jerome (O nomast. s. v.) make Magadan a region about Gerasa, and therefore east of the Lake; but that is impossible. The Melegada of Dlooks like a case of transposition, and indeed this transposition is probably the source of the confusion, and may even account for the form Dalmanutha.

    Struggles... the content is awesome. But I get a headache even glancing at the text. It's a photocopy of an original book, and it's so tiny that you can hardly read a thing. Really bad printing. Has no one retyped this and published it? In all fairness, ALL of this was written in the description, which I didn't read. I might look at one of the used hard copy books in the marketplace... maybe there's a better option there. In other news, I would highly recommend "Jesus the Christ" by James Talmage. Very inspired and detailed in every aspect of Christ's life. He references Farrar's work regularly, which is how I came across it.

    This is the best book of all the many I have read about Jesus Christ. You can tell he really "knows" the Lord and shares that understanding with us. He made the location and the persons come to life. I will be rereading it often. I feel so much closer to the Savior having devoured this book.

    This is one of the classics on the life of Christ. A necessary reference source for Bible scholars. This is an e-book.

    Although Farrar's theology is traditionally Protestant, his understanding of the history, the times, and the settings of the Holy Land are marvelous. His book is an oft-quoted source in Talmage's Jesus the Christ for God reason. The chapter on the Crucifixion was moving and powerful.

    Great source of information about the Savior

    The copied print is so small - a magnifying glass is needed to read it. had no idea this "book" is made up of copies of an older edition.

  • By Matthew Clockwork on June 8, 2016

    Great Read! I will be buying more works of Frederic W Farrar soon!
