Overview

In this follow-up to his influential book, A Rabbi Talks with Jesus, Jacob Neusner, challenges the Apostle Paul to a debate about the true meaning and significance of Judaism. Drawing new boundaries for Jewish-Christian dialogue, Neusner contends that Paul misinterpreted Judaism and that this error has resulted in the widespread perception of Judaism as ethnic and particular while Christianity is understood as universally accessible. Neusner attempts to demonstrate how Judaism, too, may be considered universal. Just as Christianity presents an option to all of God’s faithful, Neusner contends that Judaism’s mediation of the voice of God at Sinai echoes across the entire world.
