When asked what the first and greatest commandment was, Jesus responded by quoting the Shema: “Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one” (Deut. 6:4). This tenet of monotheistic Judaism stands at the center of a nearly 1,800-year-old controversy involving the nature of God and His Messiah.

The Messianic Incarnation, Ancient Judaism and the Oneness of God examines this provocative issue from the original Jewish perspective in an effort to unravel the mystery of God’s identity, transforming Him from an unknowable abstraction to the deeply personal source of transcendent love, and restoring the possibility of a true oneness and unity between a people and the God who is One.
