Why did the early Christian church, with its many Gentile members, keep Old Testament commandments about sex and idolatry but disregard many others, like those about food or ritual purity? Did Christianity inherit its ways of moral reasoning from Judaism or invent them afresh?
In Jewish Law in Gentile Churches, Markus Bockmuehl approaches such questions by examining the Jewish legal tradition behind the ethics of Jesus, Paul, and the early Christians. First published by T & T Clark, Jewish Law in Gentile Churches is now available to a North American audience in this affordable paperback edition.
