Overview

Using the Early Christian knowledge of and devotion to Christ and his teachings as his guiding focus, Hurtado (New Testament language, literature, and theology, U. of Edinburgh, Scotland) describes, analyzes, and frequently critiques a vast array of primary materials and the scholarly research that accompanies each in a volume that will be read by scholars of religion as well as the determined general reader. Among the topics included are evidence on religious life and devotion to Jesus, and approaches to Q (a collection of Jesus' sayings); Jesus and Christological crisis in the gospel of John; the canonical gospels; Judean Jewish Christianity as known through Paul and Acts; the personal factors, themes, and aspects of worship of early Pauline Christianity; Jewish monotheism; a variety of apocryphal texts on Jesus, including the Protoevangelium of James and the infancy gospel of Thomas; and the views and impact of Valentinus.
