Jesus In The Court Room – a book review

An interesting and eye opening perspective on Jesus’s engagement with the law, interpreting the law in biblical times, and how we can apply these teaching to the court room today. The author is John W. Mauck, JD. Mauck is an attorney at Mauck & Baker, LLC in Chicago, IL. Mauck received his B.A. from Yale and his Juris Doctorate from the University of Chicago.

Mauck provides a fresh perspective on the engagement of the law in biblical times and today. My initial thoughts on what this book was about fell short of the powerful insight and depth that it brought to scripture, the idea of how Jesus acted much like an attorney in his day engaging the law, and the teachings of scripture with the court room today. As a believer there is much to be learned and gleaned from this book. The content is rich and challenging. I was left with a powerful new perspective on Christ’s revolutionary interpretation, and eye opening position on the law versus the fallacies and misguided views of the Pharisees, Saducees and the high court The Sanhedrin of the day.

If you are someone who wants a fresh perspective and powerful insight into the scriptures, the legal system in biblical times and today. This book is for you. This has become one of my all time favorite books.
