From this best-selling writer comes a magisterial new undertaking: a twin biography of the preeminent figures of Judeo-Christian civilization overturning traditional perspectives of Moses and Jesus as humble males of religion. via reanimating the biographies of Moses and Jesus of their old context, Rosenberg reads their narrative as a cultural—rather than religious—endeavor. He fees that Moses and Jesus have been "educated" males, steeped within the literature and scholarship in their day. there have been no outdated or new testaments for them, just a lengthy background of writing and writers. while students and clergy quote Moses and Jesus, they commonly forget to notify us that Jesus is quoting the Hebrew Bible, usually within the demeanour that Moses quoted Egyptian scientific texts. The awesome skill of either males to remember and rework a variety of resources is missed. the place did they get those profound educations? half biography, half severe research, An expert Man demanding situations us to check what defines "an proficient person" today—and how figuring out spiritual historical past is important to it. Rosenberg deals a sympathetic method of why we'd like Judeo-Christianity—and finally convinces us that the lifetime of Jesus is unthinkable with out the version of Moses prior to him.
