Paperback
Comparing Jesus to rabbis, philosophers, ethicists, and satirists--everyone from Alfred North White to Mark Twain, Socrates to Bertrand Russell--The Wisdom and Wit of Rabbi Jesus presents readers with a view of consummate master teacher with a keen sense of humor, whose central theme is love.

- Publisher

Jesus was more than just a supernatural figure, says William Phipps. He had much in common with teachers and shared many of the interests of rabbis, ethicists, philosophers, and satirists. Phipps provides evidence of this in his thought-provoking book and then gives a boarder perspective of Jesus, showing that he differed from the traditional ancient wisdom with his rejection of the ideas of female inferiority, nationalistic prejudices, and intolerance of the unlearned. Readers are presented with a view of Rabbi Jesus as the consummate master teacher with a keen sense of humor, whose central theme was love.
