If there were any binding norms, what made them so, and on what basis were they articulated? Did Christianity inherit its norms of moral reasoning, or invent them afresh?" "In this new work, Markus Bockmuehl approaches such questions by examining the halakhic (Jewish legal) rationale behind the ethics of Jesus, Paul and the early Christians. He offers fresh and often unexpected answers based on careful biblical and historical research. His arguments have far-reaching implications not only for the study of the New Testament, but more broadly for the relationship between Christianity and Judaism."--Jacket." ;
