Dr Adam T Bradford MBBS DRCOG DFFP MRCGP
Dr Bradford is a medical doctor and a biblical historian. His work connecting Joseph, Jesus’ adoptive father, with Josephus Flavius’ description of the construction of the Second Temple by King Herod the Great has been translated into 8 languages. He is the author of 7 books, including 3 New Testament commentaries.
He is a Jewish-
His first book, ‘The New Testament On Women’, broke new ground in depicting the importance
from a Hebrew perspective of woman being God’s final creative act, as well as the significance
of the use of human DNA as the raw material, compared with the ‘dust of the earth’ that Adam
had been made from. It also showed how Paul and Peter’s teaching exactly mirrored Christ’s.
His second book, ‘The Jesus Discovery’, placed Joseph as a devout Jewish ‘tekton’, at the centre
of King Herod’s training of 1000 Jewish Priests as tektons (Josephus’ ‘Antiquities’), necessary for
the construction of the new Holy Place within the existing Court of the Priests. It underlined the
use of ‘dikaios’ within the society’s framework of the Oral Law, indicating that Joseph had been
rabbinically instructed. Furthermore, it pointed out the legal duty of the Doctors of the Law
(whom Jesus so impressed at age 12) to bring Jesus into rabbinic scholarship, thereby explaining
respect (illustrated by Temple debate) to great spite (slapping and spitting) after the conviction
for blasphemy as depicting the psychology of betrayal, consistent with Jesus having been a
person of great importance in that society. This allows the prophecy that the Messiah would be
a ‘prophet like Moses’ to be seen as fulfilled in regard to Moses’ high degree of formal learning.
His third book, ‘According To Matthew’, is a verse by verse commentary on Matthew’s Gospel
covering such points as the brain disease that King Herod suffered from, who the Magi were and
why they behaved as they did, and the exact nature of ‘the treasure hidden in the field’.
His fourth book, ‘Dylan, Depression And Faith’, is an evangelistic analysis of over 200 Bible
references in the lyrics of Bob Dylan after his so-
day. It also evidences a post-
being released in a 10 year period in the 90’s, and for that album’s title, ‘Time Out Of Mind’.
His fifth book, ‘The Letter To The Hebrews’, is a verse by verse commentary on the book of
Hebrews, illustrating (among other things) the application of how the Jewish proverb that ‘he
who builds the house has more honour than the house’ applies to Jesus, and the writer’s use of
‘homologeô’ (‘to speak the same thing’) and its connection to the practical out-
