In the The Misunderstood Jew, scholar Amy-Jill Levine helps Christians and Jews understand the "Jewishness" of Jesus so that their appreciation of him deepens and a greater interfaith dialogue can take place. Levine's humor and informed truth-telling provokes honest conversation and debate about how Christians and Jews should understand Jesus, the New Testament, and each other.

An important work
This book comprises a significant effort in contextualizing Jesus realistically, and is surprisingly accessible for a book so well researched and comprehensive. It's also remarkably level-headed and fair, as well as important for Christians and Jews alike to come to understand this figure whom both can claim, as Levine successfully demonstrates. I highly recommend it
