In an attempt to emphasize the “Jewishness” of Jesus, some modern scholars have painted a portrait of a man far different from the divine savior favored by Christian theologians. But how successful is the Jewish reclamation of Jesus in dealing with the data of the Gospels? And how convincing?

In this monograph, Fuller Theological Seminary professor Donald A. Hagner claims that the Jewish reclamation of Jesus has been possible only by a very selective reading of the Gospels. He argues that Christians must give proper due to their Jewish roots, and Jews must learn that Christ and Christianity are not incompatible with true Judaism—they are at its very heart.

While many in the Jewish community will find Hagner’s conclusions unacceptable, every honest student of the issue, Jewish or non-Jewish, will profit considerably from the author’s responsible and careful analysis.
