“Behold the Man”: Jesus in Israeli Art

150 years ago, Jewish artists and intellectuals from Central and Eastern Europe, reclaimed Jesus as a Jew to bring him back into the fold. One of the most exciting articles I ever read in the Jerusalem Post was years ago, it was entitled. “When are we going to reclaim Jesus?” There is an awakening here and in the Jewish world now that Jesus is a incredibly significant historical fact, which needs to be reclaimed.
