Product Description

How did early Christianity, which began among the Jewish people, develop into a predominantly Gentile movement by the end of the first century? Was it spurred by internal tensions within the early church, socio-political factors in the Roman city of Antioch, or was it from a growing hostility within the larger Jewish community? In Ignatius of Antioch and the Parting of the Ways Thomas Robinson addresses this intriguing historical question by taking a careful look at the writings of Ignatius, Bishop of Antioch, who wrote about this parting firsthand. Robinson sifts the testimony of Ignatius on issues such as the nature of Christian conversion at Antioch, the sources of Jewish-Christian tensions in the Roman world, and the development of the terms "Christian" and "Christianity." An excellent resource for anyone interested in the early days of Christianity and in Jewish-Christian relations.
