The Jewish Gospels

Over the last few years I have become quite a fan of Daniel Boyarin, a professor of Talmudic Culture and Rhetoric at UC Berkely.  In fact, I wrote a review of Boyarin’s groundbreaking book, Border Lines, which was recently published in Kesher Journal.

Therefore I was very excited to hear that Boyarin’s most recent book, The Jewish Gospels, has just been released. In fact, I received my copy in the mail just this last week. After skimming through it, I feel it is one of the most accessible and important books on Yeshua, the nature of G-d, and the Gospels. Unlike most of his books, which are primarily written to a scholarly audience, The Jewish Gospels is written with a more educated lay-audience in mind.

My friend, colleague, and fellow-blogger, Derek Leman wrote a great review of this book last week on his blog … so check it out! And make sure to buy this book!

About Rabbi Joshua

I'm a Rabbi, writer, thinker, mountain biker, father and husband ... not necessarily in that order. According to my wife, however, I'm just a big nerd. I have degrees in dead languages and ancient stuff. I have studied in various Jewish institutions, including an Orthodox yeshiva in Europe. I get in trouble for making friends with perfect strangers, and for standing on chairs to sing during Shabbos dinner. In addition to being the Senior Rabbi of Simchat Yisrael Messianic Synagogue in West Haven, CT, I write regularly for several publications and speak widely in congregations and conferences. My wife is a Southern-fried Jewish Beltway bandit and a smokin' hot human rights attorney... and please don’t take offense if I dump Tabasco sauce on your cooking.
