JEWISH CHRISTIANITY: FOCUS ON ANTIOCH IN THE FIRST CENTURY

Patrick J Hartin

Abstract


The first century of the common era was a period in which Judaism and Christianity sought to unify their teachings and positions. In the progressive development of Christianity many Christians attempted to maintain their Jewish roots and continued to express themselves in language, terms and conceptual images that belong to the Jewish or Semitic world. This paper traces the character of the change and development of this Jewish Christianity within early Christianity by focussing attention on the city of Antioch with particular reference to the first century CE. Consideration is also briefly given to the further development of Jewish Christianity over the subsequent three centuries among those groups of Jewish Christians known as Nazarenes and Ebionites.
