Jesus and the Temple - Expository Times

Paul Foster reviews my new book, Jesus and the Templein The Expository Times:

“Joseph presents a radical Jesus, who had a more wide-ranging programme of reforming Jewish religion than simply that of calling people back to wholehearted obedience. The ideas presented in this study are likely to generate significant discussion. Joseph presents a new way of understanding Jesus witihin Judaism, but which also means the divergence from normative Judaism found in early Christianity in fact is closely aligned with Jesus’ own critique of the parent religion.”
