Judaisms of Jesus' Followers

The Judaisms of Jesus’ Followers

The Jewish sect which ascribed Jesus the title of Messiah was eventually transformed into a non-Jewish movement wholly separated from its Jewish context. The transformation was not instantaneous, and there were deviating or at the least parallel streams of Jesus supporters early on.

A critical mistake which has been made, in my opinion, is the assumption that the Jesus movement was uniform even among its early Jewish followers. Analyzing the original movement(s) in the first centuries of the Common Era can reveal how the schism between Judaism and Christianity evolved.

This book explores the fascinating world of Jewish life in the Second Temple Era and the Jewish groups that endorsed Jesus’ messianic claims.
