10 INTRODUCTION This is the most important, though by no means the only, problem which we seek to solve in the present book. Firstly, by a full account of the times of Jesus and of his Jewish environment, and, secondly, by an account of his life and teaching ( which in the case of any great pioneer are one and the same thing), we shall get a clear idea of what there was in him of earlier and contemporary Judaism, and likewise of what there was in him which was opposed to the Judaism of his own time as well as to that of the past and the future genera-tions of Israel. We shall thus ascertain not the superiority of Christianity to Judaism ( that we leave to Christian apologists and missionaries), and not the superiority of Judaism to Christianity ( that we leave to Jewish apologists and to those who would prove Israels world-mission), but simply how Judaism differs and remains distinct from Christianity or Christianity from Judaism. This alone is the object of the present book; and every effort has been made to keep it within the limits of pure scholarship and to make it as objective as possible, avoiding those subjective religious and nationalist aims which do not come within the purview of scholarship. Should there emerge from the study of this difference and distinctness the right of Judaism to exist, this will be an advantage, but it is not a purpose for which I could permit myself to deviate from scientific truth or to modify facts out of zeal for the Jewish religion or the Jewish race. I have no wish here to argue for or against Judaism and Chris-tianity, but merely to explain and expound the  great contradiction spoken of by Voltaire. The fact that Judaism gave birth to Chris-tianity proves that Christianity much resembles Judaism; but the fact that Judaism never became Christianity and always followed its own particular path, is a standing witness that in many ways Judaism is not like Christianity. It only remains to show wherein they are alike and wherein they differ, without discussing at all whether the differences are or are not to the advantage of either. Only so can one remain within the limits of pure scholarship and avoid subjec-tivity. Only by such an attitude to the problem can one keep from becoming a religious or national apologist. Such an objective attitude the writer has struggled to maintain throughout the entire book. If Christian students suspect it of sub-jectivity simply because the author is a Jew and because the book was written in Hebrew, I can only say to them: Remove first the beam from your own eye ! As Christians they are far more suspect of a leaning towards Jesus the Christian. They whose faith is para-mount, conducing to wealth and honour, they who continue to estab-lish missionary societies not only for the benefit of the heathen but also for the Jews— they are open to the suspicion of subjectivity in all that touches Jesus and Christianity, far more than are we, the Jews, whose faith is trodden down to the lowest depths and who neither wish nor are able to practice proselytism among Christians.
