The theme is the continuity and discontinuity between early Christianity and its Jewish parent. The formation of Christian thought is currently the focus of much debate. These essays cover the historical and social context of Palestine and the Diaspora; the New Testament canon and noncanonical writings; and central themes. The concise treatments, with bibliographies, of intensely topical questions by international experts will be of interest and value to teachers and undergraduate students of the New Testament and Christian origins.

"It provides an excellent overview of what New Testament scholars are saying about this crucial topic. It could ably serve as a primer in Early Christian Thought." Phillip B. Munoa, Christian Scholar's Review "The variety of themes and the well-known scholars give us a useful overview of the current discussion on the relationship of early Christianity to Jewish tradition." Jens Schroter, Religious Studies Review "This collection will benefit students of the New Testament in the U.S. by drawing attention to the work of an important, but all too frequently neglected scholar." O. Larry Yarbrough, Jrnl of Church & State " Early Christianity in Its Jewish Context ... does consolidate in a single, convenient source a particular range of perspectives on the state of the many different dimensions of question of the Judaic context of early Christianity with these responsible, sound contributions from current scholarship.

Adam, Anglican Theological Review "...a well-planned collection reflecting an attempt to cover the major topics of early Christianity in its relation to Judaism. This collection...is highly valuable." Martin Olsthoorn, The Catholic Biblical Quarterly
