This book had a great insight into Jesus as portrayed by the Gospel of Mark: Jesus was calling his fellow Jews to an inclusive vision of Judaism instead of the more popular and more virulent exclusive Judaism raging all around him. The author presents his insight well and persuasively. but then he beats it into the ground, finding it in every nook and cranny of the Gospel of Mark whether it belongs there or not.

When Christians Were Jews (That Is, Now): Recovering the Lost Jewishness of Christianity with the Gospel of Mark. New York: Cambridge University, 2006. He calls Christians to explore �?�with open mind and heart.

There was a slowly growing chasm between Christians and Jews, rather than a sudden split. Growing tensions led to a starker separation that was virtually complete by the time Christians refused to join in the Bar Khokba Jewish revolt of 132. Certain events are perceived as pivotal in the growing rift between Christianity and Judaism. According to Dauphin, Jewish Christians constituted a separate community from the Pauline Christians but maintained a similar faith, differing only in practice. He argues that in Christian circles, "Nazarene" later came to be used as a label for those faithful to Jewish law, in particular for a certain sect.

When Christians Were Jews tells the story of identity rediscovered. Narrating recent biblical scholarship as a story of family strife, Berard recounts how early Christians dissociated from their Jewish origins and reflects on the spiritual loss suffered by Christianity because of this division. He calls Christians to explore “with open mind and heart . . . the Jewishness not only of Jesus but of themselves.”

This was an extremely interesting look into the connection between Christians and Jews. This book actually started me on a very rewarding journey.

Although Amazon's own very brief description of the contents of this book describing the family quarrel between the followers of Jesus and those following the established Jewish leaders of that time (and the rippling effects of that quarrel) is a much better and more concise description of the book than I could write, I will pass on some thoughts that will stay with me for a very long while.

A very precious friend of 40 years gave me this book prior to my pilgrimage to the Holy Land. Not only was this the best trip that I have ever taken, but also this was probably the best book that I could have taken with me. The author's clarification of YWHW's name from "I Am Who Am" to "I Will Be Whatever I Will Be" is one of the main threads woven throughout the book and opens up even more the total "otherliness" of YWHW. No constraints whatsoever in YWHW deciding what to do and when to do it in our human linear time which is equivalent to YHWH's instantaneous decision-making outside of the temporal-spatial boundaries within which we have boxed-in our anthropomorphic notion of God.

What was especially striking to me was the author's notion of the core tenets of Christianity, i.e., the workings of salvation and redemption which replaces the "idea of God sacrificing his own son as a guilt offering to himself " and how absolutely abhorrent this sacrificial mode would be to the followers of Jesus; the God of this Jewish carpenter from Nazareth was dedicated to compassion and love as expressed in the Beatitudes and the Lord's prayer. His notion of salvation: "To live fully one's reality as an image of God, to truly be oneself, this is the kingdom of heaven, the reign of God", and not attempt to be whatever anyone else expects you to be.

The chapter on "The Last Seder" was a most poignant part of the book where Jesus revealed to all of us that he was going to be truly himself, a suffering Messiah who was going to liberate his followers from themselves in order that they would be completely free to be themselves. He would not be a triumphal ruler who was going to redeem Israel from their oppressors and restore them to the greatness that they had once achieved under King David.

In sum, this was a great read which made me so much more conscious of my own Jewishness-based-Christianity and how we "missed the mark" in understanding what Jesus intended to be his message.

I learned so much from reading this. We were studying Mark while I was reading. It gives a lot of insight into our lives as Christians. Great book!
