Publisher's Description

Jesus-Yeshua.
The most influential Jew who ever lived. The most controversial Jew who ever lived.

He has been called a rabbi, a rebel, a reformer, a religious teacher, a reprobate sinner, a revolutionary, a redeemer. Some have claimed he was a magician, others the Messiah. Some say he was a deceiver; others say he was divine. Who is this Jesus-Yeshua, and why are we still talking about him two thousand years later?

Recently a prominent Orthodox Jewish rabbi presented a new version of Jesus, a “Kosher Jesus” that Jews can accept. By reclaiming Yeshua as a fellow Jew and rabbi, he has taken a very major and truly wonderful step in the right direction, but by re-creating Jesus, he has also robbed him of his uniqueness.

The Real Kosher Jesus takes you on a journey to uncover the truth. It is a journey filled with amazing discoveries and delightful surprises, a journey that is sometimes painful but that ends with joy, a journey through which you will learn the real story of this man named Yeshua: the most famous Jew of all time, the Jewish nation’s greatest prophet, the most illustrious rabbi ever, the light of the nations and Israel’s hidden Messiah.

It is a pleasure to recommend this work for any who are just curious about him and his relationship to Judaism. —Darrell Bock, PhD, research professor of New Testament Studies, Dallas Theological Seminary and author of Blasphemy and Exaltation in Judaism
 
Will the real kosher Jesus please stand up? Is he a great Jewish rabbi? Or is he the Son of God? Now we know the truth, thanks to this groundbreaking book by Dr. Michael Brown. —Sid Roth, host of It’s Supernatural!
 
Michael Brown excels as a true scholar as well as an apologist; his answers to objections are carefully thought out, honest and well researched. —Craig Keener, PhD, professor of the New Testament at Asbury Theological Seminary and author of Miracles: The Credibility of the New Testament Accounts
 
Dr. Brown powerfully details why Yeshua is the Messiah, arguing his point from both Testaments and bolstering his arguments with the extensive use of Jewish sources, both modern and Rabbinic. This book is a must read for all those who care about God’s chosen people. —Mitch Glaser, President of Chosen People Ministries

    Dr. Brown, in response to Rabbi Shmuley Boteach's book "Kosher Jesus", encourages his readers to discover who this Jesus (Yeshua) really is. Is He a Rabbi? Is He a prophet? Is He a reprobate sinner? Or He the Son of G-d? Dr. Brown discusses such mysteries as the '...Invisible G-d Who Can Be Seen,' the suffering servant, and the 'Priestly Messiah' and much more! The reader will find out how within rabbinical tradition and the Hebrew Scriptures the death of the righteous atones for the nation and in the case of Yeshua (Jesus) the whole world! I highly recommend this book to both Jews and Gentiles to understand who Jesus is and for them to dig deeper into the Scriptures and into history to learn about Yeshua.

    Jesus is the Jewish Messiah, something we often forget.

    Brown was born in a Conservative Jewish home. In 1971 he discovered who Jesus really was. It shook Brown with such a force he got his doctorate in Semitic languages and became a specialist in answering Jewish objections to Jesus.

    Brown has cultivated a friendship with Rabbi Shmuley Boteach and much of this book is in answer to the Rabbi's book, Kosher Jesus. For example, he shows that Boteach's image of Jesus, "...a potential Messiah who believed that the moment of liberation had come and who decided that he would inaugurate the Messianic era by force[,]" is false. (58)

    He answers the critics who claim Paul introduced false beliefs about and teaching of Jesus, or that Paul wasn't even a Jew.

    Brown reveals the two messiahs of ancient Jewish tradition. He shows how a suffering Messiah was written about in rabbinic literature as was the atoning power of the death of a righteous person. He also gives evidence for the Jewish expectation of a priestly Messiah and a great prophet. There is even some tradition indicating the arrival time of the Messiah, coinciding with Jesus' time on earth.

    Brown shows that, without a doubt, Jesus is the promised Messiah. "The real kosher Jesus is the Messiah of Israel and the Savior of the world." (189)

    This would be a good book for you to read if you have a Jewish friend who has not accepted that Jesus is the Messiah. You could give them this book but I think you should read it first. Brown has done a great job in showing that Jesus is the Messiah but I am not sure even a book like this will result in acceptance of the fact. Reading this book along with your Jewish friend would be a good way to stimulate discussion toward Jesus as Messiah and Savior.

    I received a complimentary copy of this book from Charisma House Book Group for the purpose of this review.
