Product Description

Beginning with the Gospels, interpretations of the life of Jesus have flourished for nearly two millennia, yet a clear and coherent picture of Jesus as a man has remained elusive. In Rabbi Jesus, the noted Biblical scholar Bruce Chilton places Jesus within the context of his times to present a fresh, historically accurate, and revolutionary examination of the man who founded Christianity.

Author Bio

Editorial Reviews

"Open this book and see Jesus as you’ve never seen him . . . This is one heck of a good read. And it left me feeling better than ever about the Jesus we try to serve and follow." –National Catholic Reporter

"Engaging and lively . . . Chilton has done an admirable job of taking us into Jesus’ world and witnessing the life of one of history’s most important figures." –Charlotte Observer

"Bruce Chilton, an Anglican priest and religion professor, has written a readable and compelling profile of Jesus and the culture and times in which he lived. Rabbi Jesus is a scholarly pursuit that . . . reads more like a novel. The biography flows with the fluidity of an adventure tale, rich in characters, texture, and detail." –Herald-Sun (Durham, N.C.)

    Scholarly work, more like heresy! There should be negative stars.

    I hardly made it through the first three pages as I was slapped in the face with a statement concerning Joseph and Mary's premarital conception of Christ. This guy calls himself a scholar? The devil comes clothed as an angel of light. Waste of paper it is written on!

    I would not recommend this book to anyone. I disagree with its description of being "historically accurate."

    As pure fiction, the book has some interest. Otherwise, I am tempted to request a refund.
