“Jews don’t believe in the Trinity; we believe in one God, not three.” “God doesn’t have a son.” “Jews don’t believe in a suffering Messiah.” In volume two, Dr. Brown provides real answers to twenty-eight theological objections showing how New Testament teachings on atonement, God’s nature, and the Messiah’s divinity are in harmony with Jewish beliefs. He treats these objections seriously and fairly, building answers from the often surprising teachings in rabbinic literature and the Hebrew Scriptures. As Brown’s answers progressively reveal, belief in Jesus is not something alien to Jewish tradition but is profoundly rooted in that tradition, fulfilling its purpose.

Theological objections cut to the heart of the differences between traditional Judaism and Christianity. They involve topics on the nature of God, the Trinity, the Deity of Jesus, and the continuity of the law. Dr. Brown seeks to clarify what the Hebrew Bible and the New Testament actually say about these and other important issues.
