Jonathan Bernis | Chosen
Throughout his traditional Jewish upbringing, Jonathan Bernis was taught that being Jewish was not compatible with believing in Jesus as Messiah. Yet, through Bible study and a variety of divinely appointed encounters, Bernis was eventually faced with a startling realization: Jesus of Nazareth’s claim of messianic status is supported with overwhelming evidence from the Jewish Scriptures.
In A Rabbi Looks at Jesus of Nazareth, Bernis presents the historical facts concerning Jesus with warmth and respect. Knowing that some of his readers will be Jews still waiting for their Messiah, Bernis is intentionally transparent about his journey to faith and the limitations of his writing. Though he takes great pains to thoroughly defuse common Jewish protests to Jesus’ messianic status, Bernis affirms that facts alone cannot give 100 percent certainty that Christ was who He said He was.
Despite uncertainties left by the facts, readers of A Rabbi Looks at Jesus of Nazareth will meet numerous Jews throughout the ages who have paid enormous earthly costs for the sake of following Jesus. This book is a companion, hopeful and trustworthy, for the Christian who desires to share Jesus with Jewish friends in a respectful, honest way.
