Kosher-Catholic Paulist Press Pushes "Noahide" Fraud

Paulist Press has published a book titled, Jesus the Pharisee which is based upon a ridiculous fable from the 18th century rabbi, Jacob Emden which has it that Jesus Christ was a Pharisee whose mission was to teach the Talmudic "Noahide Laws" to the Goyim.

Jesus the Pharisee: A New Look at the Jewishness of Jesus

Time magazine has a review of the book here:

What Sort of Jew Was Jesus?

Paulist Press publishes other "Noahide" nonsense:

Even philojudaic Time Magazine destroyed the book:,8816,1048374,00.html

"Jesus the Pharisee has significant omissions: it does not touch on such salient matters as the Resurrection, the messiahship of Jesus, or the belief that his death atoned for the sins of all humanity. Lawrence Schiffman, a critic of the book who is a professor of Hebrew and Judaic studies at New York University, says that Falk "has bought a stereotype of the School of Shammai, who in reality were good Jews and good Pharisees." Schiffman believes that there will not be a scholarly acceptance of the book's thesis."
