Answering Jewish Objections to Jesus: General and Historical Objections-Volume One


Baker 2000

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


“I was born a Jew, and I will die a Jew.” “I won’t betray my ancestors!” “If Jesus is the Jewish Messiah, why isn’t there peace on earth?” When it comes to Jewish Christian apologetics, the best answers are those that respond to actual objections. Incisive and direct, this volume provides an honest, fair, and thorough discussion of 35 common objections on general and historical themes. Answering general objections is usually a matter of correcting misconceptions about Jesus and the New Testament. Historical objections tend to be more substantial, dealing specifically with the purpose of a Messiah, or anti-Semitism, or the Holocaust. Believers and seekers alike will appreciate the spiritually focused answers, which are thoroughly documented and footnoted.

Praise for the Print Edition

This is a wonderful resource for study of the relationship between Christianity and Judaism.

—Darrell Bock, Research Professor, New Testament Studies; Professor, Spiritual Development and Culture, Dallas Theological Seminary

There is no other contemporary resource like this, and it will no doubt be useful in countering not just Jewish objections but the objections of so many other skeptics and naysayers of the New Testament.

—David Brickner, Executive Director, Jews for Jesus

Brown’s answers to objections are carefully thought out, honest, and well researched. His work provides a useful model on how to do apologetics for all who are interested in articulating and defending the Christian faith.

—Craig Keener, Professor, New Testament Studies, Palmer Theological Seminary, Eastern University

Answering Jewish Objections to Jesus, by Michael Brown, is must reading for everyone who desires to be better “prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have” (1Peter 3:15). Michael is thorough in his responses to “typical” objections to the Messiahship of Yeshua, yet, his style of writing makes these responses easy to understand. Much insight is to be gained as a result of Michael dealing with issues such as “Christian anti-Semitism”. I also appreciated his views on the Holocaust (not an easy issue to deal with).

—Messianic Rabbi Noach Zaner
