Was Jesus Really a Jew?
What's the difference?
" If there is one thing that Christians know about their religion, it is that it’s not Judaism," writes author Daniel Boyarin.
Likewise, if there’s one thing Jews know about their faith, it is that it’s not Christianity. If there is one thing that both groups know about this “double not,” it’s that Christians believe in the Trinity and the incarnation of Christ (the Greek word for Messiah) … but that Jews don’t. "And most people will tell you that Jews keep 'kosher' and Christians don’t," says Boyarin.
But is all this true? Historically, no, says the author.
