After having heard several claims about the influence of the Rabbi's on Jesus' teachings, I was curious enough to pick up this volume and I was not let down. This is an excellent introductory text for both the student, the lay person, and the Pastor who needs a refreshing look at how Jesus' ministry is positioned in the center of Jewish life and as a continuum in Rabbinic Judaism as a whole. A must read.
I have only begun to delve into this book and I really really like it. For those of you really wanting to understand our Messiah more from the Jewish perspective of which the western church world is really lacking in, you might want to buy this book.. Many believers just don't really think about the fact that Yeshua (Jesus) was a Rabbi.) Our God and Saviour is inexhaustible in HIS Being..Wow!
