Product Description

The purpose of this book is to take up two related questions with regard to Jesus: his intention and his relationship to his comtemporaries in Judiasm. The reason for his death (did his intention involve an opposition to Judaism which led to death?) and the motivation force behind the rise of Christianity (did the split between the Christian movement and Judaism originate in opposition during Jesus' lifetime?).

Publisher's Description

This work takes up two related questions with regard to Jesus: his intention and his relationship to his contemporaries in Judaism. These questions immediately lead to two others: the reason for his death (did his intention involve an opposition to Judaism which led to death?) and the motivating force behind the rise of Christianity (did the split between the Christian movement and Judaism originate in opposition during Jesus' lifetime?).
