Jesus the Rabbi

From Jaroslav Pelikan (also see this post),

‘‘To the Christian disciples of the first century the conception of Jesus as a rabbi was self-evident,
to the Christian disciples of the second century it was embarrassing, to the Christian
disciples of the third century and beyond it was obscure.’’

Jesus through the Centuries: His Place in the History of Culture (New Haven, 1985), 17. Cited in Steven T. Katz, “The Rabbinic Response to Christianity.” In The Cambridge History of Judaism, Vol. 4-The Late Roman Period, p. 267 n. 26.

One Response to “Jesus the Rabbi”

    Cheryl Toliver:

    Studying the Jewish roots of Christianity has been a tremendous help to me, to understanding what Jesus says in the NT, as well as how the OT relates to and reveals Him. It has deepened my faith so much! It’s sad so much of this has been lost to believers today.
