Early Christian Judaism

This group examines the diverse ways in which Jews embraced Jesus from the lifetime of Jesus until the rise of Islam. Our 2019 theme is “The New Testament within Judaism.” We invite papers that either (a) reevaluate a particular New Testament passage, book, or concept that is typically thought to stand outside of Judaism OR that (b) consider the difference that is made when one understands a particular New Testament passage, book, or concept as a Jewish text. Please email your proposal by February 28, 2019 to both group coordinators: David Sloan (david@davidbsloan.com) and Ben Snyder (ben.snyder@asburyseminary.edu).
