In this second of three volumes of Answering Jewish Objections to
Jesus, Brown takes up twenty-eight of the most weighty objections raised
against Jesus. These are real questions and real answers, formed by years of
dialogue with rabbis and religious Jews. Some objections include:
- Jews don't believe in the Trinity. We believe in one God, not three.
- God doesn't have a son.
- The Christian concept of salvation is contrary to the Hebrew Bible and
Jewish tradition. Jews don't need saving.
- Jews don't believe in a suffering Messiah.
Brown shows how New Testament teaching on the nature of God and the divinity
of the Messiah is in harmony with the Hebrew Scriptures, how blood sacrifices
joined with repentance were the heart and soul of the Torah's system of
atonement, and how Yeshua fulfilled a lofty Jewish concept, bringing atonement
to the world through his death.
As with Brown's earlier volume, this rich resource comes thoroughly
referenced with notes and includes a glossary, subject index, and index of
Scripture and other ancient writings. It is a necessity for anyone involved in
Jewish-Christian dialogue or apologetics.
From the Back Cover
In Answering Jewish Objections to Jesus, Volume Two, Michael Brown provides
real answers to twenty-eight theological objections. He treats these objections
seriously and fairly, building answers from the often surprising teachings in
Rabbinic literature and the Hebrew Scriptures. As Brown's answers progressively
reveal, belief in Yeshua-Jesus-is not something alien to Jewish tradition but is
profoundly rooted in that tradition, fulfilling its purpose.
