Endorsements:

There are few books as clear, simple, and profound in the way that The Jewish Jesus is. It is a significant contribution to the literature that seeks to restore an original context of meaning for interpreting the Bible that preserves the election of the Jewish people in God’s plan, while affirming the Church in its role with the Jewish people. It is accessible and can be understood well by most readers. We trust that it will have a great impact.
Dan Juster, Founding Director, Tikkun International Ministries, Jerusalem

David takes us back to the Jewish roots of Christianity and gives a much-needed biblical understanding of the importance of the Jewishness of Jesus, the centrality of Israel in God’s plan and purpose and what this means for the church today. Making profound truths simple, he writes with honesty, courage, and a great sense of humor, showing how these come together in an understandable and undeniable way. As you read, may you have revelation that changes your thinking, heart, life, and church as it has ours!
