Publisher's Description

If you were to ask ten people, Who started Christianity? you might hear ten voices giving the same quick response: Jesus. But those ten people would be wrong. Jesus wasn’t a Christian. Jesus lived and died as a Jew. Understanding the Jewishness of Jesus is the secret to knowing him better and understanding his message in the twenty-first century.

Walking through Jesus’ life from birth to death, Rabbi Evan Moffic serves as a tour guide to give Christians a new way to look at familiar teachings and practices that are rooted in the Jewish faith and can illuminate our lives today. Moffic gives fresh insight on how Jesus’ contemporaries understood him, explores how Jesus’ Jewishness shaped him, offers a new perspective on the Lord’s Prayer, and provides renewed appreciation for Jesus’ miracles.

In encountering his Jewish heritage, you will see Jesus differently, gain a better understanding of his message, and enrich your own faith.

    This book looks at Rabbinic Judaism and Jewish legends to better understand Jesus' teachings in their Jewish context. The author compared and contrasted Jesus' teachings and teaching methods to other rabbis of that time period. He also covered topics like rabbis, discipleship, circumcision, Jewish ritual immersion, bat kol (divine voice), fasting, the Shema, the Lord's Prayer, and how 1st century Jews viewed miracles, resurrection, and the messiah. He also drew parallels between Jesus' life and Old Testament events involving Joseph, Moses, and others.

    The author is a Reform Judaism rabbi who has clearly spent a lot of time talking with Christians. I appreciate his efforts to educate Christians (and Jews), and he was respectful about Christian beliefs. While he brought insights into things of Jewish significance, he understandably (due to the variation in beliefs among Christians) didn't always understand my Christian viewpoint on things. Every time I started thinking, "this is good!," he'd say something that flipped me to "um, no..."

    I'd recommend other Jewish background books before this one, but this book did provide some good information and was interesting.
