Item description for The Early Christians in Ephesus from Paul to Ignatius by Paul Trebilco...

Overview
In this book, Paul Treblico seeks to discuss all the evidence for the life of the early Christians in Ephesus from Paul to Ignatius, seen in the context of our knowledge of the city as a whole. Drawing on Paul's letters and the Acts of the Apostles, Treblico discusses the beginnings of the life of the early Christians in Ephesus, both before the Pauline mission and during that mission. He then shows that in the period from around 80 to 100 CE there were a number of different groups in Ephesus who regarded themselves as Christians - the Pauline, Johannine, Nicolaitans, and others - testifying to the diversity of this time and place. Treblico also argues that the Pauline and Johannine groups were distinct and separate communities. He proves his theory with an examination of several themes relating to these sets, including their attitude to the wider world, their material possessions, their leadership structure, and so on. Including further discussions on the Ephesus addresses of John the Seer in Revelation and Ignatius, this book is a thorough and scholarly exploration of the early Ephesian Christians and their community.

Publishers Description
The capital city of the province of Asia in the first century CE, Ephesus played a key role in the development of early Christianity. In this book Paul Trebilco examines the early Christians from Paul to Ignatius, seen in the context of our knowledge of the city as a whole. Drawing on Paul's letters and the Acts of the Apostles, Trebilco looks at the foundations of the church, both before and during the Pauline mission. He shows that in the period from around 80 to 100 CE there were a number of different communities in Ephesus that regarded themselves as Christians -- the Pauline and Johannine groups, Nicolaitans, and others -- testifying to the diversity of that time and place. Including further discussions on the Ephesus addresses of the apostle John and Ignatius, this scholarly study of the early Ephesian Christians and their community is without peer."

Reviews - What do customers think about The Early Christians in Ephesus from Paul to Ignatius?

The Early Christians in Ephesus from Paul to Ig natius.  Dec 2, 2007
An extremely scholarly book written with astounding research, The information it offers was sometimes almost overwhelming but without losing the readers interest.

It offers brilliant insights into the times, the culture and many personalities with which it deals. I find the book amazingly intriguing and I must confess that I am already on my 3rd reading of it and STILL learning so very much more than prior readings. To me, it yet remains 'a book-in-progress' so thorough a job of scholarship which went into its creation and the author's mastery of his subject matter.

I remain, literally intrigued by the authors seeming inexhaustible knowledge and what I also find evident, is his unrestrained determination to recreate, virtually, in writing the span of his topic both time-wise and subject-wise.

I am still enjoying, immensely, what I continue to learn from this author's perseverance and dedication to master his subject matter.

I can find NO reason to not recommend this book to all who cherish serious reading and learning. It is phenomenal both in scope and content in my humble opinion.
