9780061137785: The Misunderstood Jew

Country Western singer Kinky Friedman often performs a song entitled - They Ain't Making Jews Like Jesus Anymore, - and New Testament professor Amy Jill Levine would agree. In fact, her career is dedicated to helping Christians and Jews understand the Jewishness of Jesus, thereby deepening the understanding of him, and facilitating greater interfaith dialogue. In this book, she shows how liberal Christians misunderstand Judaism, misunderstand the New Testament, and thus yank Jesus out of his Jewish context and wind up promoting hatred of Jews. Only with the deeper understanding this top Jewish, Southern born New Testament scholar provides can we hope to respect each other's beliefs, as well as enrich our own. Through a extremely busy teaching and speaking schedule, Levine has honed her message at synagogues, Catholic conferences, Jewish Community Centers, denominational meetings, in the classroom and in her highly successful Teaching Company audios and videos. Levine is brilliant, charming, funny and forceful, and uses these traits to give a completely fresh perspective on Jesus and the New Testament. In addition to offering new insights with great skill, she has the remarkable ability to be tough, pointing out how even liberal Christians can be unwittingly anti Semitic in their understanding of what Jesus stood for. Her truth telling here will provoke honest dialogue on how Christians and Jews should understand Jesus and our New Testament heritage.
