Michael L. Brown provides a comprehensive refutation of the traditional Jewish concept that there is a binding, authoritative oral law going back to Moses. While showing great respect for his people’s traditions, Brown dispels the idea that only traditional Jews can rightly understand the Hebrew Scriptures. He demonstrates that the written Word alone carries absolute authority, and when there is a conflict between the Bible and tradition, Jews are called to follow the Bible.

    Thank you Logos for completing the set. I very much liked the first four volumes. They are wonderful reference to have at your finger tips. I highly recommend them and give them all five stars. So I have no doubt that this volume will be just as good. Pre-ordered.
    with more than half a century of researching looking for the so called "unassailable colossal evidence for authoritative Jewish oral tradition that predates the pharisees", and have found no such animal. I am sure anyone can point to a tradition here and there that has been accepted as a good way of life in spite of being extra biblical, (this is after all a very Jewish thing to do out of respect for their inspiring Rabbis) , yet to make such an blanket assertion against Dr. Brown's thesis reveals the sad fact that someone has either not bothered to read the book or else (god Forbid) was unable to grasp the particular points generally made or specifically proving that there has always existed within my Judaism a great variety of ways to interpret Jewish writings of any sort. To say it straight out, many did follow the rabbis, even before there was something called by that name, but the vast majority of scripture literate persons followed neither the bible nor rabbis, while increasingly people would follow the rabbis only so far as they were in line with the traditions to be found in Bible.. to this day only a minority of Jews ever even try to follow the traditions of the rabbis, truth being well known that they have no such ancient pedigree lifting anyone above plain scripture..

    Those who would most champion this work would be those who hold to sola scriptura, while the Orthodox and Catholics would be more inclined to disagree. I myself reject sola scriptura and affirm Apostolic oral tradition along with the Jewish oral tradition that pre-dates the Pharisees which is why I gave it one star. I found that in this volume that Dr. Brown seems to be unaware of the unassailable colossal evidence for authoritative Jewish oral tradition, but instead spends most of the book arguing for sola scriptura by selecting various passages from the Bible and attempting to reason why these passages point against the oracles of God being spoken to the Jewish people outloud, but rather God choose to speak only through the written word. This is a classic sola scriptura position. While I appreciate why Dr. Brown would want to publicly deny that the Jewish people passed on essential information regarding the faith from generation to generation, because if that's true, the Rabbis can use that to argue that their rejection of Jesus was rooted in that ancient tradition (but we know from the Dead Sea Scrolls, and relevant historical documents and the New Testament, that the Jewish oral tradition was not the reason why they rejected Jesus, but it was rather because Jesus claimed to be divine (Matthew 26:64, Mark 14:62, Luke 21:27, 22:69, 22:70), yet they never saw him first arrive on the planet on the clouds of glory, but rather they knew him as just a mere man from the unimportant village of Nazareth), in my honest opinion a better approach is to illustrate the vast amount of Jewish Orthodox tradition which speaks of a divine Messiah. Itzhak Shapira did this in his work, "The Return of the Kosher Pig." Again. This said, I greatly appreciate Dr. Brown for so much of his work. And I would highly recommend the first four volumes to anyone witnessing to Jews. They're totally worth it. I give them five stars. I have all five volumes in print and I found the first four incredibly helpful. https://www.logos.com/product/3494/answering-jewish-objections-to-jesus

    I have the printed edition of this whole series and cannot recommend it highly enough, especially if you speak with our Jewish Orthodox brothers and sisters, to which we owe so much! Thank you Logos for completing the set!
