Description

The Jewish Gospel of John is not, by any standard, another book on Jesus of Nazareth written from a Jewish perspective. It is an invitation to the listener to put aside their traditional understanding of the Gospel of John and to replace it with another one more faithful to the original text perspective. The Jesus that will emerge will provoke you to rethink most of what you knew about this gospel.

The book is a well-rounded, verse-by-verse rethinking of the fourth gospel. Here is the catch: Instead of treating it as if it was written for 21st-century Gentile Christians, the book interprets it as if it was written for the first-century peoples of ancient Israel.

The book proves what Krister Stendahl stated long time ago: "Our vision is often more abstracted by what we think we know than by our lack of knowledge." Other than challenging the long-held interpretations of well-known stories, the author, with the skill of an experienced tour guide, puts us in the place of those who most probably heard this gospel read in the late first century. Such exploration of a variety of important contexts allows us to recover for our generation the true riches of this marvelous Judean gospel.

A timely revisiting of John's gospel of grace

John in Hebrew is Yochanan or God is gracious".

Is there something about God's grace and the Jews that the New Testament Church has missed for the last 2,000 years? Are these the end times God was referring to when He told Daniel, "...seal the book until the time of the end..."? I think the answer is "yes" and that Dr. Lizorkin-Eyzenberg has hit the nail on the head. A great companion book to this is "When a Jew Rules the World: What the Bible really says about Israel in the Plan of God", by Joel Richardson.

I would strongly recommend the Audio version of the The Jewish Gospel of John. The author does a fantastic job making his book come alive by reading it himself.

Recalibrates your understanding of this Gospel

The author does a wonderful job of presenting his own work. And fascinating work it is! This will completely refresh and reorient the way you read and understand this Gospel. Completely reverses the grotesque misreadings of John that have too often fueled anti-semitism. In fact, the deeply Jewish concerns and construction of the text are revealed in a very convincing way, including Jesus' passion to see all of Israel unified, with a special concern for Samaria. Frequent references to "the Jews" (in English) are shown to refer to the Judean elites who controlled the Temple snd Jerusalem-based religious practice (as opposed to Samaritan or Galilean Jews). Really compelling, and so refreshing! Has really increased my appreciation for and understanding of the Gospel of John!

confusing

He ignores history that supports and explains the situations. He oft repeats unsupported myths as truth.

An Excellent Resource

Dr. Eli provides an excellent approach to studying the book of John that any pastor, priest, and lay leader should read (or listen to). There is a paradigm shift required, at least for non-Jewish readers (though all people today can benefit), but the revealed nuance and meaning behind this text is not only plausible but probably the most accurate way to understand what John wrote and God is saying.

Outstanding! A deeper understanding of the Gospel

I would recommend this book for anyone interested in understanding the real message of Christ and the plan for reuniting the family of believers. Wonderfully written with great detail and knowledge of the people and languages of the land at the time of Christ. I learned a great deal and made connections that the mainstream church unfortunately won't make. I pray that the message of this book travels far and wide. The authors reading of his own work enhances the message as he conveys his points enthusiasticly. I have been studying the bible from the Hebrew prespective for the past couple years and the information presented here not only confirms my understanding but deepens it. Thank you Dr. for your dedication to inform people and pass along your knowledge. Well done!

A good Listen

this is one book I think I got more out of it the second time I heard it. I do not agree with everything he says, but I do think he is right on about much of it. for sure he challenges you to think.

Highly Recommended, Revolutionary in the Best Way

The book fascinates because it is both instructive and enlivening. I enjoyed the book so much that this is my first review.
The author brings considerable insight to the Jewish context of Jesus’ first century. This is a lot here that even a well-educated Christian will find new. Further, the author brings a creative new insight that helps explain John’s distinctive approach. Although John’s Gospel was already my favorite, now I feel that I had been missing a great deal of what we in there.
One difficulty with writers on religious history is that they often seem credulous, either way: either they distrust every claim within the text, certain of their unreliability, or they take everything at face value, emasculating the truth for literalism. This author does a great job of threading this needle. He provides historical evidence for his limited claims and presents countervailing views when appropriate.
To me, the most surprising outcome was that this illumination of the historical Jesus and his mission made the whole story so much more immediate. Not only was this the most interesting and insightful commentary I’ve encountered, it also became an outstanding devotional book.

Wunderbar!

Angenehme Interpretation des Evangeliums, zusammen mit Reza Aslans "Zelot" gehört, entsteht ein recht gutes Bild der Zeit.
