Summary

The gospel writers were masters of Midrash, a popular literary technique in the ancient Jewish world. Midrash enables authors to promote their ideas by weaving them into well known biblical themes. The gospels contain coded, midrashic, messages that would have resonated with their contemporary Jewish audience.

Author Biography

Harry Freedman, academic and entrepreneur, has promoted a critical view of Judaism's development. He now uses his knowledge of ancient Jewish texts to challenge the Church's view of Jesus's ambitions.
