Item Description...
Overview
An in-depth look at the Christian scriptures-from a Jewish perspective. Many Jewish people know the New Testament only through snippets of verse heard at a Christian wedding or funeral, or through a chapter read in literature class. Many are completely unfamiliar with the meaning or messages of Christian scripture and therefore hold strange or startling judgments about it. A Jewish Understanding of the New Testament introduces the text to Jewish readers. Samuel Sandmel applies scholarly criticism and provides historical background to the writings of the New Testament, revealing how the sacred literature of other religions can provide fresh perspectives on one's own beliefs. Without compromising his Jewish identity or encouraging any traditional Jewish stereotypes of the New Testament, Sandmel offers an enlightened view of Christian beliefs and encourages readers to acknowledge their common humanity with people of all religions. (Previously published by KTAV Publishing House, 1974, ISBN 0-870682-628.) Rabbi Samuel Sandmel was professor of Bible and Hellenistic Literature at Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion, and author of many highly regarded books in the fields of Jewish and Bible studies.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
I can't put it down!  Feb 22, 2006
I am in the process of converting to Judaism from Christianity. This means that I have lots of questions and confusion about who Jesus was if he was not the messiah. When I bought this book, I expected it to be dry and difficult to get through. Indeed, the introduction is, but it's largely unnecessary for the enjoyment of the remainder of the book.

I was pleasantly surprised to find that the book is both easy to read and engaging. It is well-researched and written, but also written for the casual reading. In other words, you don't need to be a Bible scholar in order to understand it.

Even more surprising, the book is written in a very respectful and non-controversial way. Although it does not apologize for Jewish beliefs, it also does not pass judgment on Christian ones. Instead, it states Christian beliefs (such as the resurrection) as neither fact nor fiction, but rather as what various people believed.

The book is structured in several parts, covering the cultural and historic contexts, Paul and his writings, Jesus and the Gospels, the other writings (Acts, Revelation, etc.), and the significance of the New Testament.

This book is great for both Christians and Jews, and probably my favorite on Jewish-Christian relations and/or studies.
