The Original Message of a Misunderstood Apostle
9780060722913   Product Code: 88119
For nearly two millennia Paul has been presented as the founder of Christianity and a model for Christian conversion. But in this provocative book Eisenbaum outlines what did and did not change in Paul's religious life, arguing that he did not see Jesus as superseding the Torah but as uniting Jews and Gentiles; she also considers how the traditional portrait of the apostle as a Christian convert has contributed to the history of anti-Semitism.
