    Rabbi Jacob Neusner in his book, "a Rabbi Talks With Jesus," points out that Jesus makes the point that he and his disciples stand in the place of the priests in the Temple and that according to Jesus the holy place has shifted, being formed anew by the circle made up of the master and his disciples. This teaching is what distinguishes the essence of Christianity from Judaism. Jesus does what only God can do by declaring himself Lord of the Sabbath. Jesus also teaches that he and the Father are One. Upon reflection Christians would not argue with the position taken by Levine and Brettier. They would agree that the New Testament is a Jewish tome. After all every one of the Apostles were Jewish, and if not for them the New Testament would not have been written. What separates Christianity from Judaism is Jesus himself, who Christians believe is the incarnation of the Son of God and the promised Messiah. So the thesis that the New Testament is 100% Jewish in the values it teaches does not negate who Jesus is and what he represents to Christians.
