Christianity and Judaism in antiquity

BS501

The 21 essays originated as papers presented at an April 2003 conference at the University of Notre Dame, which focused on the principal themes of Sanders' (religion, Duke U.) work: Judaism, Jesus and the Gospels, and Paul. Among the topics are the problem of self-definition, common Judaism in Greek and Latin authors, historiography for an age of destruction, the place of the Sadducees in first-century Judaism, Jesus in Jewish Galilee, Hellenism and the high priesthood in life-of-Jesus narratives, the incident at the temple as the occasion for Jesus' death, the source of Paul's problem in Judaism, Pauline soteriology, and grace and the transformation of agency in Christ.
