Jesus Versus Yhwh
Full Product Description
Jesus versus YHWH offers a verse-by-verse examination The Gospel of Jesus of Nazareth, in which Peter Gillies holds that Jesus – whom the Gospels portray as teaching his disciples to symbolically drink his blood and eat his flesh, and saying that his death was a sacrifice willed by YHWH – was aiming not to establish a new religious covenant, but rather to redeem his fellow Jews from religious bondage altogether.
“The Gospel of Jesus of Nazareth is one of those adventurous books that causes a reviewer to wonder how it was ever achieved. I am reminded of the great fourth-century Christian translator, Jerome, who recalling his work of translating the Hebrew and Greek texts into Latin at the request of the reigning Pope remarked: ‘Tears and groans were every day my portion!’ This book is not a believer’s interpretation. In fact, Gillies describes his work as ‘a freethinking attempt to cut straight through to the heart of the mystery’ of the historical Jesus. Having found imponderable problems in the teaching of mainstream Christianity - teaching based presumably on the four Gospels - he has gone to the text with a will. While his work allows ample room for debate and critique, its style and aspiration invite reading and study.” - Robert Crotty, Emeritus Professor of Religion and Education, University of South Australia
