Early Jewish Believers in Jesus
As the matter of early Jewish believers in Jesus has come up in some recent email exchanges, and is a topic of perennial interest to scholars and the wider public, I mention a really valuable collection of studies on the topic. Indeed, it’s probably now the first place to go for informed discussion that is up to date and incomparably wide-ranging in the evidence considered:
Oskar Skarsaune and Reidar Hvalvik (eds.), Jewish Believers in Jesus: The Early Centuries (Peabody, MA: Hendrickson, 2007). xxx + 930 pp.
The 23 contributions that make up the volume take account of all the questions in current scholarship, and put on the table textual and also archaeological data. The discussions are sane, balanced, informed, and accessible to anyone seriously interested.
