What Every Christian Needs to Know About the Jewishness of Jesus
A New Way of Seeing the Most Influential Rabbi in History
by Rabbi Evan Moffic

Abingdon Press

Christian, Religion & Spirituality

Pub Date Feb 2, 2016

I was given a copy of What Every Christian Needs to Know About the Jewishness of Jesus through the Publisher and there partnership with Netgalley in exchange for my honest review which is as follows:

In this book Rabi Evan Moffic reminds us of the Jewish roots of Christianity.  This book points out the fact that Jesus was both born and died a Jewish and that early Christianity started as an offshoot of Judaism not as an entirely separate religion. 

In one section of this book Rabi Evan Moffic explain how in a Traditional Jewish family a Child is giving a Bible at the age of three the Rabbi then asks the child to open it to the first page then he or she begins walking around the room giving each child a dab of honey, as they begin reading the Bible they taste the honey letting the sweetness linger in their mouths, this ritual is to remind them that the word of the Lord is sweet.

This book shows us too that one of the trademarks of Rabbinic Judaism is using questions to teach. 

I found this book to be both insightful and interesting and would recommend it to anyone interested in learning about Jesus’es Jewish Roots.

Five out of five stars

Happy Reading
