Item description for Surrendering Retribution in the Psalms: Responses to Violence in Individual Complaints (Paternoster Biblical Monographs) by David G. Firth & D. L. Morcom...
It is plain even from Pauls own writings that other presentations of the Christian message than his own were current during his apostolic career. With some of these other presentations he is quite happy; against others he found it necessary to put his readers on their guard.In these four studies originally presented as the inaugural series of Didsbury Lectures at the British Isles Nazarene College Manchester F.F. Bruce discusses what we know about the history of nonPauline Christianity in the first century. Judiciously drawing upon material from the whole of the New Testament he relates it to other early Christian literature in order to provide a highly readable outline of an important area.But as he warns this book does not study the literature for its own sake. Instead it focuses on the leaders of early nonPauline Christianity with their associates from whom the literature provides indispensable evidence.The topics covered areChapter 1 Peter and the ElevenChapter 2 Stephen and Other HellenistsChapter 3 James and the Church of JerusalemChapter 4 John and his Circle
