'The Toledot Yeshu in the Context of Jewish-Muslim Debate'. One of the most controversial books in history, the medieval Toledot Yeshu recounts the life story of Jesus from a negative and anti-Christian perspective. It ascribes to Jesus an illegitimate birth, a theft of the Ineffable Name of God, heretical activities, and, finally, a disgraceful death. Prof. Philip Alexander, a former co-director of the CJS, has contributed to this important collection of essays with a chapter on the Jewish-Muslim dimension. Further information.
