Joachim Heinrich Biesenthal

Joachim Heinrich Biesenthal (Raphael Hirsch) (1800-1886) was known as the leading Jewish-Christian scholar of the mid-nineteenth century. He had extensive training in rabbinics and a thorough command of the Hebrew language. In addition to writing extensive commentaries on several books of the Bible, he penned several other books and articles on Christianity from a Jewish perspective.


Dr. Biesenthal on Matthew 2:23

This is a rare English translation of some of Biesenthal's commentary on the New Testament. In this piece he tackles the phrase "he shall be called a Nazarene." This article originally appeared in the journal The Bibliotheca Sacra and Theological Eclectic 32 (1875).
