The weakness of the book is that McKnight begins with his own (arbitrary) definition of "missionary", a definition is so narrow he is able to go through a variety of ancient texts and conclude that none of them support the idea of a Jewish mission. However, if he let the evidence speak for itself on the nature of the relationship between Jews and Gentiles, without imposing an arbitrary definition, one would probably find much more reason to think of 2nd temple Jews as a missional people.
