5 Rabbis Explain Jesus
An Ethical Exemplar
Emil Hirsch’s brother-in-law Kaufmann Kohler was also a prominent rabbi and scholar. He was president of the seminary for Reform Rabbis for 25 years.He wrote frequently about Jesus, and while he was critical of Jesus’ seeming dismissal of the law of the Old Testament, he highlighted his social message.
For Kohler, Jesus was a “helper of the poor” and a “sympathizing friend of the fallen.” He said Jesus learned these values at the synagogue and brought them to the forefront of first-century Jewish life.
As we can see, the Jewish understanding of Jesus is diverse. I have no doubt we will continue to uncover and learn more in the years ahead.
