Been meaning to read this for a while. One of many books I'd like to read in which the meaning of Jesus' key statements/beliefs is explored in light of his cultural and religious context as a first century Jew. I've heard Scott speak about this book before, so I have a general idea of what it's about: apparently Jesus' famous summary of the two most important commandments (to love God and to love others) is actually a reformulation and affirmation of the "shemah" (sp?) of the Jewish faith (I think that's the part that begins "Hear O Israel, the Lord your God is one...) I'll have to say more once I finally get around to reading it.
