Description: Jesus of Nazareth is often seen as rejecting a Judaism incorrectly characterized as legalistic, misogynistic, vengeful, and xenophobic. Understanding Jesus in his Jewish context corrects false stereotypes, brings new meaning to his parables, politics, and piety, and it offers a new path for Jewish-Christian relations.
