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's 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. Among the critically acclaimed highlights of this book, Rabbi Moffic gives fresh insight on how Jesus's contemporaries understood him; explores how Jesus's Jewishness shaped him; offers a compelling new perspective on the Lord's Prayer that will forever change the way you experience these powerful words; and provides renewed appreciation for Jesus's miracles.
In encountering Rabbi Jesus and understanding his Jewish heritage, you will see Jesus differently, gain a better understanding of his message, and enrich your own faith. Victor Hugo once said "All the forces in the world are not as powerful as an idea whose time has come." Seeing Jesus as a Jew is an idea whose time has come. Listen to this book, and see how Rabbi Moffic weaves together theology, history, and Jewish practices and customs to bring us closer to our God.
