Jesus from a Jewish perspective: book review of "The Changing Faces of Jesus"

In The Changing Faces of Jesus Geza Vermes makes a strong case for treating Jesus as a Jewish healer and exorcist rather than as the divine redeemer of later Christian doctrine. In his view it was the author of the Fourth Gospel, traditionally ascribed to John, and Paul who changed our perception of Jesus so radically. Given that Jesus was a historical character, this argument seems to me to be pretty unanswerable.
