Jews and Christians: A Parting of the Ways
A.D. 70 to 135: The Second Durham-Tubingen Research Symposium on Earliest Christianity and Judaism
James D. G. Dunn
From The Publisher:
This volume contains papers from the second Durham-Tübingen Research Symposium on Earliest Christianity and Judaism that help clarify the extent to which we speak of the parting of the ways between Chistianity and Judaism. Twelve internationally respected scholars carefully analyze the chief Jewish and Christian documents and traditions from the period A.D. 70-135, drawing out what they say about the mutual relations between early Chrisitianity and Judaism and the light they shed on the diverging trajectories of these two major religious traditions.
"The values of this collection lies not in its success in clarifying answers to the questions [of when and where Judaism and Christianity parted ways], but in demonstrating that they cannot be answered either by neat models or by ignoring the theological issues they raise."
—Journal of Theological Studies
"This volume helps us both to understand and to formulate new qustions about how two expressions of faith, Rabbinic Judaism and Christianity, emerged from the same religious context."
