The Misunderstood Jew: The Church and the Scandal of the Jewish Jesus (Paperback)
Usually Ships in 1-5 days from Our Distributor
In the The Misunderstood Jew, scholar Amy-Jill Levine helps Christians and Jews understand the "Jewishness" of Jesus so that their appreciation of him deepens and a greater interfaith dialogue can take place. Levine's humor and informed truth-telling provokes honest conversation and debate about how Christians and Jews should understand Jesus, the New Testament, and each other.
