REVIEW The Misunderstood Jew: The Church and the Scandal of the Jewish Jesus

REVIEW Ä The Misunderstood Jew: The Church and the Scandal of the Jewish Jesus In The Misunderstood Jew scholar Amy Jill Levine helps Christians and Jews understand the Jewishness of Jesus so that their. The Author is a Lecturer in New Testament at Vanderbilt I have made notes as I have read through the book and later tried to organise them into themes or ideas A number of times she will make a statement such as Christians believe that Jesus was raised notice the difference Not Jesus was raised but Christians believe that Jesus was raised Her Jewish faith makes it impossible to take the New Testament s claims about Jesus seriously As such she must dismiss or ignore much of what the New Testament says in order to maintain her own pre conceived idea ie biaso She says that Christians need to read the New Testament with an understanding of how a Jew would read it and try to understand how a committed Jew would see some statements as anti Jewish If only she had applied the same principle to her own book She does not read the New Testament as a Christian would read it but only as a Jew would What she writes is therefore insulting to a committed Christian as well as being offensive aggravating and immensely upsetting In other words in many ways this book is anti Christian Throughout she complains about how The Jews have become a stereotype How all Jews have been lumped into the same basket And yet she does the same things to Christianso She often talks about what pastors preachers and priests do as if we all do the same thingo She often talks about the church and its views when in fact my part of the church has never shared that view and hasn t even heard of some of themo She will talk about Christians as if we are monolithic but we are not Interestingly her biggest complaints are about the two extremes liberals and the neo Nazis Surprisingly she has nothing bad to say about independent fundamental Bible Believing Baptists This may be because this group ie us sort of do not hold the negative stereotypes she states Throughout it is not The Jewish Jesus that is the problem The real problem is Jesus the Messiah the fulfilment of Jewish hopeso Like Neusner A Rabbi Talks with Jesus she stumbles over Jesus Not the Jewish Jesus but Jesus as he is presented in the Gospels Acts and Letters In fact she often rejects what an author will say because it is anti Jewish or as a Jew Jesus couldn tdidn twouldn t saydo thato The only true words of Jesus are those that fit her anti Jesus the Messiah agenda Everything else is a later interpolation or additiono She overlooks that Jesus talked about his coming at the end of the age and assumes that the church made this up when Jesus didn t come back soon Of course she never mentions these passages in the Gospels Matthew 1339 40 49 and even if she did based upon other statements I suspect that she would say that these were invented by the church rather than being the true words of Jesuso And then there is her argument that the words of Jesus taken out of their historical context and placed into a Christian book makes them not Jewish but Christian and therefore his polemic becomes or can be used as anti Jewish But are the words of the prophets then anti Egyptian anti Babylonian anti Assyrian Well in a way they are but only in the historical context of the day If we keep the anti within its own setting then the NT is not anti Jewish but reflects the genuine historical situations arguments and debates that Jesus and the church in Acts encountered She clearly doesn t like Paul and especially his arguments in Galatians but does in Romans which are pastoral but she totally ignores Romans 1 8 which shows Jews are also sinners in need of salvation through faith in Jesus Her very selectivity is not only offensive but aggravatingo She assumes Paul lies about Peter in Galatians to get his own way In other words Paul may have rebuked Peter publicly but Paul lost the argument But he isn t telling the Galatians this because it destroys his pointo Luke says things against the Pharisees to make them look bad but Jesus didn t really mean thato Luke being a friend and companion of Paul simply follows Paul s agenda in spite of his stated aim of declaring truth And of course her suggestion that both synagogue and church end up in the same location is a denial of the claims of Jesus to be the only way to the Father But then she couldn t say otherwise while remaining faithful to her own beliefs any than I could say that both end up in the same place and be faithful to Jesus And it is strange that although the Mishnah and Talmud are written later than the Gospels she treats them with absolute respect ie Rabbi so and so said but when it comes to the Gospels and the words of Jesus it is often whether Jesus really said this or not or Luke added this statement In other words she demands respect for her tradition but refuses to give it to mineo And it is this inconsistency this demanding from others what she will not give and condemning in others what she herself does which does to undermine her argument than anything else Neusner at least seems to give the Gospels and Christians some respect Levine for all her ability at teaching and being an Apologist for Judaism does not show that same respectThere are of course many good points in this book And it is a good book for people to read However it is not necessary to accept either her argument or her conclusions for she is just as biased as she claims Christians are

REVIEW Ä The Misunderstood Jew: The Church and the Scandal of the Jewish Jesus Vokes honest conversation and debate about how Christians and Jews should understand Jesus the New Testament and each other. This is a wonderful book for Christian Jew or the just curious about religion It s a good read whether you re well schooled in theology or just beginning to believe Ms Levine is a Jew who knows Christianity better than many professed Christians much to the shame of the churches Well worth the price of purchase
