FRIDAY, JANUARY 20, 1989

esus of Nazareth was a
pious Jew, a "charis-
matic religious vir-
tuoso . . . a religious genius"
who was deified by Paul of
Tarsus, -who also — perhaps
unconsciously — introduced
paganism into Christianity.
Furthermore, Jesus believ-
ed he had an intimate rela-
tionship with God and was
only trying to speed up the
coming of His kingdom on
earth.
Those were among the
points made by former
Detroiter Dr. Irving M.
Zeitlin, now professor of
sociology at the University of
'Ibronto, to a group of about
250 persons attending an in-
terfaith lecture recently at
North Congregational
Church in Southfield.
Using both the Torah and
the New Testament as well as
the writings of the Roman
historian Josephus, Zeitlin
sought to examine where
Jesus of Nazareth stood in
relationship to the Judaism of
his time.
He said New Testament
documentation shows that
"Jesus became a pious,
Palestinian Jew — he was cir-
cumcized, studied the Torah,
taught the Bible, wore the
ritual fringes (tzitzit) and
paid his half-shekel dues, as
required by ancient Jewish
law. He was addressed as
`Rabbi' or 'Master' by his
disciples and the public and
by many of the learned people
of his time."
At about age 12, Jesus had
what Zeitlin refers to as "The
Abba Experience", "a sort of
Jewish 'Daddy Dear', if you
will."
According to Luke in the
New Testament, Jesus was
brought from Galilee to
Jerusalem by his parents for
a festival. He wandered off
and when his worried mother
found him at the Temple,
listening to the priests
discuss the Bible, he told her,
"Do not worry, Mother, I am
here, in my Father's house.

"We want potential kosher

Dr. Zeitlin:
Paul introduced paganism.

"He seemed to have an
understanding of a special
relationship with God the
Father from a very young
age," the professor said.
Jesus taught that the
Sh'ma and the V'Y'Havtah
were the most important corn-
mandments and that he came
not to abolish the Laws of the
Prophets but to fulfill them,
Zeitlin said.
Jesus, or Yeshuah, had
much in common with the
Pharisees, although he
disagreed with them about
the importance of the Oral
Law as opposed to the Writ-
ten Law. He also was opposed
to divorce, while advocating
healing on the Sabbath, the
latter in keeping with rab-
binic law.
"Jesus was diverging from
certain oral traditions of
Mosaic Law," said Dr. Zeitlin,
and was involved in elevating
the poor and the humble by
taking them away from the
paganism of their time.
"Jesus was accentuating
righteousness, trying to build
on the piousness of the
Pharisees. He believed that if
he could get the sinners to re-
pent, then God in His
graciousness will usher in the
Kingdom of Heaven sooner.
This is what Jesus is all
about," said Dr. Zeitlin.
