From this best-selling writer comes a magisterial new venture: a twin biography of the preeminent figures of Judeo-Christian civilization overturning traditional perspectives of Moses and Jesus as humble males of religion. through reanimating the biographies of Moses and Jesus of their old context, Rosenberg reads their narrative as a cultural—rather than religious—endeavor. He fees that Moses and Jesus have been "educated" males, steeped within the literature and scholarship in their day. there have been no outdated or new testaments for them, just a lengthy heritage of writing and writers. while students and clergy quote Moses and Jesus, they usually overlook to notify us that Jesus is quoting the Hebrew Bible, frequently within the demeanour that Moses quoted Egyptian clinical texts. The notable skill of either males to keep in mind and rework quite a lot of assets is neglected. the place did they get those profound educations? half biography, half severe research, An informed Man demanding situations us to examine what defines "an expert person" today—and how figuring out non secular historical past is essential to it. Rosenberg bargains a sympathetic method of why we'd like Judeo-Christianity—and finally convinces us that the lifetime of Jesus is unthinkable with out the version of Moses sooner than him.
