The real Messiah? : a Jewish response to missionaries by Aryeh Kaplan( Book )

3 editions published between 1985 and 2004 in English and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Missionaries are spending untold sums in an effort to convert young Jews. What is the Jewish response? Can a billion Christians be wrong? Why do Jews reject Jesus as the Messiah? What is a "messiah"? What will he accomplish? What does the Bible really say? What does a "savior" and "being saved" really mean? Why do we believe that missionary claims are built on mistranslations, misquotes, inaccuracies and Biblical passages taken out of context? In this penetrating analysis, Rabbi Aryeh Kaplan uses actual missionary materials to refute missionary claims, and offers the traditional Jewish view of Christianity. - from back of the book
