Reading the Bible with Rabbi Jesus – Cover!

Friends, few months ago when I finished the manuscript for my next book, Reading the Bible with Rabbi Jesus, I gave you an overview of the book. Now I’m excited to show you the full official cover.

The book will be released by Baker Publishing in January 2018. I’ll be giving you updates about it before then, so check again soon. (It is already available for pre-order at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and CBD.)

Before the book comes out, I’ll announce when I can take orders for signed copies through the ORJ website bookstore.

In my next post, I’ll be sharing the reviews of the book. So stay tuned!

    I like to ask what it would take for you to start using Jesus’ original name “Yeshua”? If you want to press home your point about the Jewish background of the Gospels, it would be very helpful to start using Jewish names and terminology. I hope you issue a new revised edition of your new book to do just that. Jesus was not actually His name.

    I understand exactly your question, and after teaching about the Jewish context for almost twenty years now, I certainly feel strongly about teaching people pertinent information. I have a policy about not changing names however, which I explain more in the article at this link.

    It is useful to understand the linguistic and historical nomenclatures relating to our faith. What is also useful is to understand that human language and linguistics are are not written in stone. The way the Greek-speaking world spelled “Yeshua” was IESOUS, not a falsification. The latin-based languages used J instead of I, not a falsification. The name “Charles” in English and French is “Carlos” in Spanish and “Karl” in German. These are not falsifications. Charlemagne is “Karl the Great” in German–the same person. Methinks if we know WHO it is we are referring to (our Rabbi Jesus or Yeshua of Nazareth), the technical issues fade into the background.
