Matthew Thiessen’s Recent Interview on the OnScript Podcast

Back in January I wrote a review for Matthew Thiessen’s latest book Jesus and the Forces of Death: The Gospels’ Portrayal of Ritual Impurity within First-Century Judaism (Baker Academic, 2020) which you can find here. I cannot recommend this book enough as it sets Jesus in his own context as a first-century Jew who fully accepted Torah and all it entailed, even if he disagreed with some sects’ interpretation of it. Thiessen was recently interviewed over at the Onscript podcast about his book and he offers a great overview of his work and how the Gospel writers seem to have understood Jesus. For those of you who don’t have time to read but may have a lengthy commute to work, give it a listen!
