In 2008, The New York Times reported on the discovery of a Hebrew tablet, dating from before the birth of Christ, which predicted a Messiah who would rise from the dead after three days. Famed religious scholar Daniel Boyarin stated that 'some Christians will find it shocking - a challenge to the uniqueness of their theology.' In The Jewish Gospels, Boyarin makes a radical argument that conventional wisdom on the origins of Christianity is wrong. Possessing the credentials to back up his argument, Boyarin is certain to open people's minds to new assumptions about Christian ideology.
Daniel Boyarin, Taubman Professor of Talmudic Culture and rhetoric at the University of California, Berkeley, is the recipient of numerous awards and fellowships. His books include A Radical Jew, Border Lines, and Socrates and the Fat Rabbis. He lives in Berkeley, California.
