The Jewish Jesus:
How Judaism and Christianity Shaped Each Other
Peter Schäfer

Book Description | Table of Contents
Introduction [in PDF format]

ADDITIONAL ENDORSEMENTS:

"The Jewish Jesus is the natural sequel to Peter Schäfer's widely acclaimed Jesus in the Talmud. Against overly simplistic conceptions of Christian influences on Judaism, Schäfer posits a dynamic dialogue between two not yet clearly demarcated communities. Christianity grew out of Judaism, but Judaism also developed and changed in constant exchange with and differentiation from Christianity. Schäfer's fascinating and highly readable book offers an important change of perspective from traditional religious histories and deserves many readers."--Günter Stemberger, author of Jews and Christians in the Holy Land: Palestine in the Fourth Century

"Schäfer's thought-provoking book challenges readers to reimagine the relationship of early Judaism and Christianity and the theological matrices in which they developed. Must reading for students and scholars alike."--Burton L. Visotzky, Jewish Theological Seminary

"This excellent and important book will be seized on eagerly and read with attention. Peter Schäfer makes his argument with great clarity and a formidable command of the sources, building his case from close readings of the texts. The scholarship is impeccable."--Philip Alexander, professor emeritus, University of Manchester
