5 Rabbis Explain Jesus
The great nineteenth- and early twentieth-century American Rabbi Emil Hirsch wrote and spoke frequently about Jesus. He saw him as a champion of faith in human progress and a teacher of the Old Testament.
As Hirsch proclaimed from the pulpit, “He was of us; he is of us. We quote the rabbis of the Talmud; shall we then, not also quote the rabbi of Bethlehem? Shall not he in whom there burned, if it burned in any one, the spirit and the light of Judaism, be reclaimed by the synagogue?”
Hirsch’s point of view has been echoed in several contemporary books with the phrase “Rabbi Jesus” in their title.
