Jewish lives that have been changed by Jesus all testify that not only did Jesus enhance their Jewishness, but that Jesus is the Jew's Jew. Why, then, do so many Jewish people not believe in Jesus and even object to the messiahship of Jesus? Many testimonies included. Written by Arnold Fruchtenbaum.
Tony Blair, former Prime Minister of England, says, (reported in http://www.welovethisbook.com/beta/features/tony-blairs-desert-island-books-0)
"This is a fascinating book, engrossing but also troubling for Christians. Because of the way we Christians are brought up and because of the way the early Church distanced itself from Judaism, we can sometimes overlook this simple fact: Jesus was a Jew. What Fruchtenbaum shows, is that he was not only a Jew by ethnicity, he was a fully practicing Jew, a rabbi who saw himself absolutely in the line of the great prophets of Israel. Of course, he also had deep and penetrating criticisms of the Judaism of his time, though many of those criticisms were shared by previous prophets and his basic call – for Jews to return to what their faith truly means – stands firmly in the prophetic tradition. The joy of the book is
in the clear and accessible way
it is written, in its scholarship and its objectivity."
