The Jesus Movement
Sorry, this item is now out of stock.
A social history of 'the groups and communities in the New Testament who are either connected with the historical Jesus or confess the risen Christ', this substantial work integrates historical and social data to locate the ancient Galileans, Judeans and the Jesus Movement in their respective matrices. Among the issues covered are conflict between messianic communities and the rest of Judaism, religious pluralism, group composition, ancient economics and the role of women in the Jesus movement and the early churches. Translated by OC Dean.
