Product Description

Jesus Christ is Who Christianity is based on, but He was a practicing Jew during His life. Amy-Jill Levine was born into a Jewish home and now is the professor of New Testament Studies at Vanderbilt. Her focus and purpose in writing is to bridge the gulf between Christianity and Judaism by examining the Jesus of the Bible. On the one hand, there is Jesus the rabbi, whose wise words are seldom heard in modern synagogues; on the other hand there is Jesus the iconoclast, who upheld the Law of the Lord to the point of fulfilling it. In Levine's often humorous book, she attempts to pave a middle path, where understanding between the two traditions centers on the Jesus of her studies - an observant Jew Whose teachings should engender love of the Jewish people on the part of those who follow His way and Whose words should hold wisdom for those whose traditions He grew up in.

Publisher's Description

In the The Misunderstood Jew, scholar Amy-Jill Levine helps Christians and Jews understand the "Jewishness" of Jesus so that their appreciation of him deepens and a greater interfaith dialogue can take place. Levine's humor and informed truth-telling provokes honest conversation and debate about how Christians and Jews should understand Jesus, the New Testament, and each other.

Author Bio

Amy-Jill Levine is University Professor of New Testament and Jewish Studies, E. Rhodes and Leona B. Carpenter Professor of New Testament Studies, and Professor of Jewish Studies at Vanderbilt Divinity School and College of Arts and Science in Nashville, Tennessee; affiliated professor at the Centre for the Study of Jewish-Christian Relations at Cambridge; and a self-described "Yankee Jewish feminist who teaches in a predominantly Christian divinity school in the buckle of the Bible Belt." She is the author of The Misunderstood Jew and the editor of The Jewish Annotated New Testament.

Editorial Reviews

Written for the general reading public, this is an outstanding addition to the literature of interfaith dialogue.
Shows how frequently and disastrously inaccurate beliefs about Jesus and early Judaism produce distorted relationships in the present.
“Passionate, witty, and compelling . . . Levine’s depth of knowledge and understanding are evident on every page. . . . There is much food for thought in this wonderful book.”
