I got Jonathan a couple of books about Jesus and his Jewish roots. In part both books look at archaeology as well as Jewish traditions and customs of the time. From flicking through them, the books both seem interesting. Jesus, as we know, spoke to the Jewish people of his time through stories using traditions, customs, work and objects that they would not only understand, but also relate to.
This got me thinking about what customs, work and objects Jesus would use today if he were present in body on earth. How/what do you think modern day parables would be like?
