[VIDEO] What Kind of Jewish Rabbi is Jesus? | Rev. David Pileggi

As the evangelical world rediscovers the Jewishness of Jesus, we enrich our understanding of His full human identity. But it can be difficult to understand his “Jewishness” in contrast to his contemporaries, most notably among the Pharisees. When we find him accused of breaking Torah (Mark 2), and when he criticizes Pharisaical practices in turn, we are thrown into the same confusing debate alongside his disciples: what kind of Jewish rabbi is Jesus?

Readings: Deuteronomy 5:12-15; Psalm 81:1-10; Mark 2:23-3:6
