Softcover. 8vo. XIX, 203 pages. 23 cm. First edition. “Judaism in the New Testament explains how the books of the early church emerged from communities which defined themselves in Judaic terms even as they professed faith in Christ. The earliest Christians set forth the Torah as they understood it - they did not think of their religion as Christianity, but as Judaism. For the first time, in Judaism in the New Testament, two distinguished scholars take the earliest Christians at their word and ask: 'If Christianity is (a) Judaism, then how should we read the New Testament? ' The Gospels, Paul's Letters, and the Letter to the Hebrews are interpreted to define what Chilton and Neusner call 'Christianity's Judaism. ' Seen in this way, the New Testament will never be the same. (Publishers Description) . Subjects: Judaism (Christian theology) Christianity - Origin. Jewish sects - History.
