Overview

Jesus-Yeshua.
The most influential Jew who ever lived. The most controversial Jew who ever lived.

He has been called a rabbi, a rebel, a reformer, a religious teacher, a reprobate sinner, a revolutionary, a redeemer. Some have claimed he was a magician, others the Messiah. Some say he was a deceiver; others say he was divine. Who is this Jesus-Yeshua, and why are we still talking about him two thousand years later?

Recently a prominent Orthodox Jewish rabbi presented a new version of Jesus, a “Kosher Jesus” that Jews can accept. By reclaiming Yeshua as a fellow Jew and rabbi, he has taken a very major and truly wonderful step in the right direction, but by re-creating Jesus, he has also robbed him of his uniqueness.

The Real Kosher Jesus takes you on a journey to uncover the truth. It is a journey filled with amazing discoveries and delightful surprises, a journey that is sometimes painful but that ends with joy, a journey through which you will learn the real story of this man named Yeshua: the most famous Jew of all time, the Jewish nation’s greatest prophet, the most illustrious rabbi ever, the light of the nations and Israel’s hidden Messiah.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Michael Brown is a compelling voice in the critically important debate over the true identity of Jesus of Nazareth. —Lee Strobel, New York Times best-selling author of The Case for Christ
 
The Real Kosher Jesus explains with real clarity how Jesus as a Jew makes sense—biblically, historically, and theologically. It is a pleasure to recommend this work for any who are just curious about him and his relationship to Judaism. —Darrell Bock, PhD, research professor of New Testament Studies, Dallas Theological Seminary and author of Blasphemy and Exaltation in Judaism
 
Will the real kosher Jesus please stand up? Is he a great Jewish rabbi? Or is he the Son of God? Now we know the truth, thanks to this groundbreaking book by Dr. Michael Brown. —Sid Roth, host of It’s Supernatural!
 
Michael Brown excels as a true scholar as well as an apologist; his answers to objections are carefully thought out, honest and well researched. —Craig Keener, PhD, professor of the New Testament at Asbury Theological Seminary and author of Miracles: The Credibility of the New Testament Accounts
 Dr. Brown powerfully details why Yeshua is the Messiah, arguing his point from both Testaments and bolstering his arguments with the extensive use of Jewish sources, both modern and Rabbinic. This book is a must read for all those who care about God’s chosen people. —Mitch Glaser, President of Chosen People Ministries

    Dr. Brown, in response to Rabbi Shmuley Boteach's book "Kos

    Dr. Brown, in response to Rabbi Shmuley Boteach's book "Kosher Jesus", encourages his readers to discover who this Jesus (Yeshua) really is. Is He a Rabbi? Is He a prophet? Is He a reprobate sinner? Or He the Son of G-d? Dr. Brown discusses such mysteries as the '...Invisible G-d Who Can Be Seen,' the suffering servant, and the 'Priestly Messiah' and much more! The reader will find out how within rabbinical tradition and the Hebrew Scriptures the death of the righteous atones for the nation and in the case of Yeshua (Jesus) the whole world! I highly recommend this book to both Jews and Gentiles to understand who Jesus is and for them to dig deeper into the Scriptures and into history to learn about Yeshua.

    Rabbi Shmuly Gets Schooled! Apologetics in Grand Fashion w/ Dr. Brown

    All eyes to the front of the class as Hebrew language scholar Dr. Brown takes Rabbi Shmuly and others school!

    This book is an accurate and detailed response that systematically untwists Shmuly's twisted concepts in his book on Jesus.

    Highly recommended for the Jew and Christian as both will come into a greater understanding of the Messiah.

    Great apologetics!
