THE DIALECTICAL NATURE OF EARLY CHRISTIAN DISCOURSE

Vernon K Robbins

Abstract


The topic of this address is the birth of Christian discourse during the first century of the common era.  An analogy, if you will, can be the birth of the discourse of South Africa as a new nation.  The strategy is to approach the birth of Christianity from the perspective of the kinds of discourses that interacted with one another over a period of a century (30-130 CE) to create a kind of speech that was perceived both to be distinct from the other Judaisms of the time and to have the nature of a discourse that was perceived to be complete in and of itself.


Keywords
