By Michael L. Brown
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 ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_Ì´å«Kosher JesusÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_ÌÎå´ 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" takes you on a journey to uncover the truth. It is a journey filled with amazing discoveries and delightful surprises, a journey that is sometimes painful but that ends with joy, a journey through which you will learn the real story of this man named Yeshua: the most famous Jew of all time, the Jewish nationÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´åÇs greatest prophet, the most illustrious rabbi ever, the light of the nations ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´å and IsraelÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´åÇs hidden Messiah.
"Michael Brown is a compelling voice in the critically important debate over the true identity of Jesus of Nazareth." ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´å Lee Strobel, New York Times bestselling author of "The Case for Christ"
"The Real Kosher Jesus explains with real clarity how Jesus as a Jew makes senseÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_ÌÎÌÕbiblically, historically, and theologically. It is a pleasure to recommend this work for any who are just curious about him and his relationship to Judaism." ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´å Darrell Bock, Ph.D., 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." ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´å Sid Roth, host of "ItÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´åÇs 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." ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´å Craig Keener, Ph.D., 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 GodÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´åÇs chosen people." ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´å Mitch Glaser, president of Chosen People Ministries
