Review

Michael Brown is a compelling voice in the critically important debate over the true identity of Jesus of Nazareth. —Lee Strobel, New York Times best-selling author of The Case for Christ
 
The Real Kosher Jesus explains with real clarity how Jesus as a Jew makes sense—biblically, historically, and theologically. It is a pleasure to recommend this work for any who are just curious about him and his relationship to Judaism. —Darrell Bock, PhD, research professor of New Testament Studies, Dallas Theological Seminary and author of Blasphemy and Exaltation in Judaism
 
Will the real kosher Jesus please stand up? Is he a great Jewish rabbi? Or is he the Son of God? Now we know the truth, thanks to this groundbreaking book by Dr. Michael Brown. —Sid Roth, host of It’s Supernatural!
 
Michael Brown excels as a true scholar as well as an apologist; his answers to objections are carefully thought out, honest and well researched. —Craig Keener, PhD, professor of the New Testament at Asbury Theological Seminary and author of Miracles: The Credibility of the New Testament Accounts
 
Dr. Brown powerfully details why Yeshua is the Messiah, arguing his point from both Testaments and bolstering his arguments with the extensive use of Jewish sources, both modern and Rabbinic. This book is a must read for all those who care about God’s chosen people. —Mitch Glaser, President of Chosen People Ministries

Dr. Michael Brown's The Real Kosher Jesus is a dynamic examination of the identity of Jesus within His rich Jewish context. Dr. Brown draws the reader into a progressive revelation of Jesus-Yeshua as a Jew, a rabbi, a prophet, a revolutionary and the long awaited and soon returning Messiah. The occasion of the book was the publication of Rabbi Shmuley Boteach's book Kosher Jesus, which I have not read and will not be a part of this review, however The Real Kosher Jesus goes far beyond a narrow or temporary response to Boteach's work. This book, penned in only two and a half months, leads the reader into a discovery of who Jesus really was and is. The progressive revelation of Brown's writing, which manages to both build a case and present a journey, is consistently evangelistic and exceptionally powerful, presenting the beauty of Jesus as the truly Jewish Messiah.

While avoiding an academic or scholarly tone, The Real Kosher Jesus obviously has an enormous scholarly depth and foundation. Dr. Brown is probably the foremost Christian apologist to the Jewish people, authoring five volumes of Answering Jewish Objections to Jesus, and he effortlessly draws from comprehensive source material. The book moves from Anti-Semitism and the Jewish response through Church history to the Jewishness of Jesus, the Jewishness of the Gospel, the Jewishness of Paul, and a distinctly Jewish path to discovering Jesus as the Messiah, the Savior, Lord, and Son of God. This journey contains vast amounts of revelation for the Christian as well as for the Jew and provides a fresh but vital presentation of the gospel. In reading the book, one feels that this was the progression of the gospel as it was meant to be revealed to the world through the Jewish people and nation.

What a wonderful book "The Real Kosher Jesus" is! It usually takes me a couple weeks to read a book this size but I read this one in only two days. This book does a great job teaching about Jesus/Yeshua without it being too difficult to read. It also contains the best description of the "trinity" that I have ever heard in Ch.9. This book is going to be a go to book for many Christians on this subject for many many years to come. Thank you Dr Brown for letting the Lord use you to write this timely and important book! Keep up the amazing work.

Jesus-Yeshua. The most influential Jew who ever lived. The most controversial Jew who ever lived.

He has been called a rabbi, a rebel, a reformer, a religious teacher, a reprobate sinner, a revolutionary, a redeemer. Some have claimed he was a magician, others the Messiah. Some say he was a deceiver; others say he was divine. Who is this Jesus-Yeshua, and why are we still talking about him two thousand years later?

Recently a prominent Orthodox Jewish rabbi presented a new version of Jesus, a "Kosher Jesus" that Jews can accept. By reclaiming Yeshua as a fellow Jew and rabbi, he has taken a very major and truly wonderful step in the right direction, but by re-creating Jesus, he has also robbed him of his uniqueness.

The Real Kosher Jesus is an insightful book. Dr. Brown explains Jesus/Yeshua within his Jewish context. That yes he was Jewish and therefore he did the things that any observant Jewish man would of done. Showing Yeshua's Jewishness helps us to understand more of the scriptures in the way it was attended.

My thoughts on this book:

The progressiveness of Brown's writing builds on itself. Presenting the gospel of our Messiah Yeshua is such a beautiful way that He is truly a Jewish Messiah and not a blonde-haired blue eyed Savior as the pictures have been painted throughout the church history.

Dr. Brown will show you varies resources ranging from the New Testament to show Yeshua's Jewishness, and from several different books written by Jewish rabbis and professors. He will show you that Yeshua didn't start a new religion, replace Israel, and was anti-Jewish. He does the same for Paul(Sha'ul).

I have not read the book,"The Real Kosher Jesus" by Rabbi Boteach so I can not comment on his writing-just on what Dr.

Wowee Kahzowee! - The many little known historical facts and reasoned arguments presented are extremely compelling to any open minded person. I especially appreciate and was moved by the eyewitness scriptural testimonies given by those who actually interacted Jesus! They are very powerful in demonstrating that Yeshua is far from being your average Rabbi. Any Jewish or non-Jewish person who wants to discover who the Real Kosher Jesus is needs to prayerfully read this awesome book; not just with an open mind, but with an OPEN HEART!!!

This will, without doubt, soon be recognized as one of the premier Jewish evangelistic tools, since the New Testament. For 2,000 years Yeshua/Jesus has been maligned as "the first Catholic," son of Mr. and Mrs. Christ, etc. Dr. Michael Brown has provided the historic and biblical evidence in this relatively short account that nothing is more Jewish than Jesus. You may not like Jesus' message, it might make you uncomfortable, but there can be no doubt that any Jew who considers the evidence presented in Dr. Brown's book will have to acknowledge Jesus was as Jewish as it is possible to be. Those who are committed to bringing Messiah to the Jewish people MUST read this book, and then buy a dozen to distribute to their more skeptical Jewish friends.
