In a fresh, bold look at the historical Jesus and the Jewish roots of Christianity, Rabbi David Zaslow challenges both Jews and Christians to re-examine their understanding of Jesus' commitment to his Jewish faith in his book, Jesus: First Century Rabbi.
Instead of emphasizing the differences between the two religions, this groundbreaking text explains how the concepts of vicarious atonement, mediation, incarnation, and Trinity are actually rooted in classical Judaism. Using the cutting edge of scholarly research, Rabbi Zaslow dispels the myths of disparity between Christianity and Judaism without diluting the unique features of each faith. Jesus: First Century Rabbi is a breath of fresh air for Christians and Jews who want to strengthen and deepen their own faith traditions.
Jesus: First Century Rabbi is the winner of the 2015 Rodda Award for excellence in writing and significance in contribution to congregational libraries through promotion of spiritual growth. This award was given by the Church and Synagogue Library Association.

Especially useful was the authors use of comparable texts from Christian and Jewish texts. I also found interesting the explanations of certain words especially when multiple meanings are present in the original word but a single specific word is used in translation. That may be because Im a philophile (I love words).
This is a useful book for Jews, Christians and everyone else interested in interfaith understanding, and should reduce the sum total of ignorance in the world just a little bit. Rosemarie Cawkwell
