Nazarene Space

Recently aquired  a fascinating new book(2012) by Daniel Boyarin entitled " The Jewish Gospels; The Story of The Jewish Christ". A very interesting read. He writes to demonstrate, among other things, that before the time of Constantine and Nicea, Judaism and Christianity were two views within the same religion. An interesting idea, is it not?

Now, don't throw stones at me, read it for yourselves. BTW, Boyarin is a jewish Rabbi, and a Talmudic scholar.

I wholeheartedly agree. I have written a 12 page college thesis on this very topic, drawing on a number of scholarly sources. The earliest form of Christianity was another Jewish sect, like the Pharisees, Sadducees, Essenes, Zealots, etc.

Ah! Jolly good!

I believe you will find it interesting. A ptiy it wasn't longer. I read the entire book in just a few hours.
