Book Description

How can Jesus be said to be "missing"? The Church has consistently referred itself to conceptions of Jesus during its history, and the world of scholarship has seen a renaissance in the study of Jesus over the past 20 years. In fact, Jesus' place in popular culture has been surprisingly prominent as a result of recent historical study. What is "missing" is not by any means reference to Jesus: what is missing is rather an entire dimension of his identity. In order for us to understand Jesus and his profound influence on global culture, we need to see him within the context of the Judaism that was his own natural environment. No one can be assessed apart from one's environment, but a variety of factors have isolated the study of Jesus from the study of Judaism. The "missing" Jesus is Jesus within Judaism.

4.0 out of 5 stars placing Yeshua in the proper context June 1 2004
Format:Paperback
THIS IS A WELL NEEDED WORK, THE BOOK CONSIST OF SEVERAL DIFFERENT WRITERS, THE MOST NOTABLE BEING JACOB NEUSNER AND BRUCE CHILTON. WITH ALL THE DIFFERENT BOOKS BEING WRITTEN ABOUT THE "HISTORICAL JESUS", AND MOST OF THEM ARE INACCURATE, THIS BOOK OVERALL PLACES YESHUA IN THE PROPER CONTEXT. IT SHOWS THAT HE WAS CERTIANLY PRO TORAH AND FOLLOWED THE WRITTEN LAW TO THE TEE. WHILE MOST OF HIS ARGUMENTS WITH THE PHARISEES WERE IN A RABBINIC CONTEXT, AND THE REASON OF THE RUBUKES GIVING BY YESHUA TO THE PHARISEES WAS MAINLY BECAUSE OF THIER IGNORANCE OF THIER ON ORAL LAW, WHILE YESHUA HAD MASTERED IT. THERE IS ALSO A GREAT SECTION WRITTEN ON JAMES BY BRUCE CHILTON.

1.0 out of 5 stars More fiction by a kriptorabbi Dec 11 2006
By Kripto Brain - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This book is written by the same author of the fiction book "Rabbi Jesus". One of his co-authors is Rabbi Jacob Neusner, therefore you can expect Judaism's Propaganda instead of facts. Bruce Chilton is the same author that called Jesus a "Mamzer" in the book "Rabbi Jesus". I happen to know that Jesus is not missing!
