From The Publisher:

'If this be from Heaven...' is an introduction to the New Testament and Judaism, which seeks to inform the reader at several levels. One is the relationship between Jesus and his followers to the Judaism of their day. Another is the attitude towards Judaism of the various New Testament writings. Finally, it seeks to help Christians in dealing with the fact of anti-Jewish texts in their Bible.


"Tomson's knowledge of Judaism of the period in which Christianity originated is exemplary... the topic of this book is of immense importance for Christian-Jewish understanding."
—Hendrikus Boers, Candler School of Theology, Emory University, Atlanta
