Overview

Judaism in the New Testament explains how the writings of the early church emerged from communities which defined themselves in Judaic terms even as they professed faith in Christ. These two extremely distinguished scholars introduce readers to the plurality of Judaisms of the period. They show, by examining a variety of texts, how the major figures of the New Testament reflect distinctly Judaic practices and beliefs.
This important study shows how the early movement centred on Jesus is best seen as 'Christian Judaism'. Only with the Epistle to the Hebrews did the profile of a new and distinct Christian religion emerge.

Chilton and Neusner contend that, contrary to conventional wisdom, early Christians identified not as Christians, but as Jews. Bound to be controversial, the authors examine the New Testament as a statement of the Torah of Sinai. This important work provides a provocative and trenchant critique of existing scholarship that seeks to view Christianity as autonomous from Judaism.
