About the Author
Bruce Chilton received his doctoral degree from Cambridge University for his research on early Christianity and Judaism. He wrote the first critical commentary on the Aramaic version of Isaiah (The Isaiah Targum, 1987), as well as studies that analyze Jesus in the context of Judaism (culminating in the bestselling Rabbi Jesus, 2000). He has taught in Europe at the Universities of Cambridge, Sheffield, and Münster, and in the United States at Yale University (as the first Lillian Claus Professor of New Testament) prior to his current appointment at Bard College as Bernard Iddings Bell Professor of Religion. His recent publications include The Way of Jesus (2010) and Abraham’s Curse (2008).
