Valuable, Uneven Collection of Essays on Earliest Christianity and Judaism Apr 17, 2007
This collection of essays and papers by experts in the area of early Christian/middle Jewish history will be of interest to most students of the fascinating period during which there was a "parting of the ways" between the earliest Christians, many of whom were Jewish, and the descendants of Pharisaic Judaism in the post-Temple period (starting in AD 70) through the second rebellion of Bar Kochba in AD 135.
The papers deal with and analyze material from early Christianity including sacred writings (contrasting harsher polemical material in Matthew with more resigned, mature reflections in John, in turn compared with Pauline conclusions), Patristic apologetic material (including Clementine literature, Barnabas and Justin Martyr), Talmudic allusions to "minim" (heretics) and reactions to difficulties with what constituted proper synagogue worship, and other early Christian and Jewish sources (including Jewish pseudepigraphical writings).
The papers are of varying tenor, a few appear to be losely tied in with the "parting of the ways" theme, but overall the editor has chosen well and the collection will be of interest to the student of the period.
