Rabbi Moffic is something of a prophet. At every turn-be in an examination of Our Father, the foundational Christian prayer, or a probing of the Shema, the foundational Jewish prayer-Moffic peels back layers of insight. He connects dots not before seen."
The Jesus I grew up with was intelligent and wise, compassionate and kind. But it took adulthood for me to understand he was also Jewish. That revelation opened a world of insight I'd before missed. As I grew to know the real Jesus--a Jewish Jesus--my faith developed fresh depth and life. If you have a passion for learning, if you enjoy the stretch of good dialogue and aren't afraid of venturing into new territory, pull up a chair. I have two rabbis I want you to meet.
"You have made a most cogent case for the Jewishness of Jesus and made him even more accessible for both Christians and Jews."
Thank you, Rabbi Moffic! As a Christian and a Catholic priest, I am grateful for the intriguing look into the Jewish life of Jesus. As such, this book is a wonderful gift to Christians who seek to further the rich faith and culture out of which Jesus emerged.
Rabbi Moffic draws from Jewish wisdom in a way accessible to all of us. His insights as a rabbi speak generously to a multi-faith world."
More people need to understand the power of prayer. Rabbi Moffic has given us a generous guide to unlocking the power of our words -- to God, ourselves, and each other."
As the book makes clear, much of what Jesus taught is already part of an authentically Jewish conversation. Accessible and powerful, this book is a valuable contribution to inter-religious understanding.
From the Author
This book is the result of that conversation. It is a result of thousands of hours spent in learning and conversations with devoted Jews and Christians who care about growing in faith and knowledge.
For followers of Jesus, I hope seeing Jesus's life as a Jew opens up new ways of appreciating and growing closer to him. I hope it helps Christians move beyond the simple understanding of Jesus as a ticket to heaven to Jesus as a way of living within a tradition and relating to others. I hope it helps Jews move beyond a simple association of Jesus with anti-Semitism to Jesus as a teacher of Judaism. I also hope it creates new encounters with God and with one another.
