This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: The New Testament appears to describe Jesus as a strong opponent of the Pharisees. This book however argues that the appearance is deceptive, being due to late additions to the New Testament, which, however, contains strong traces of an earlier pro-Pharisee attitude, for example, the portrayal of Gamaliel. Jesus, the book argues, was not only friendly to the Pharisees, but was actually a member of their movement. Evidence is brought from the rabbinic writings to show a strong affinity between Jesus and the Pharisees. The Talmud even retains a reminiscence of Jesus as a rabbinic figure. The argument that the rabbinic writings are too late to be valid is combated. The book puts forward many new insights into New Testament problems: for example, why did Jesus' brother, not peter become the leader of the Jerusalem Church? What was the motive for the denigration of the Pharisees? What was Jesus' attitude toward the temple? Did Jesus flout the Jewish ritual purity laws? Do the Gospels contain a polemic against the Jerusalem Church? Did Jesus' claim to be the Messiah (a political title) constitute a threat to the Roman Occupation, rather than to the Jewish religion? Was the High Priest a henchman and appointee of Rome, despised by the Pharisees and the Jewish people?. Buchnummer des Verkäufers ABE_book_usedgood_0334029147
Inhaltsangabe: In this text, Hyam Maccoby controversially suggests that Jesus was not only friendly to the Pharisees, but was actually a member of their group. He aims to throw new light on the relationship between Jesus and John the Baptist, exploring the political aspect of their movements and their adherence to the Torah. He looks at evidence from the rabbinic sources to show a strong affinity between Jesus and the Pharisees and discusses previously misunderstood or ignored stories about Jesus found in the Talmud. The book rehabilitates the Pharisees and uses the New Testament to show that there is continuity between Pharisaism and rabbinism. It should prove influential in the strategy to combat anti-Semitism.
Über den Autor: Professor Hyman Maccoby is currently a Research Professor at the Centre for Jewish Studies in Leeds, having been a Scholar-Librarian at Leo Baeck College, London.
