Abstract:

A generation ago interest in the history of Judaism was largely confined to Christian scholars. It amounted either to illustrative material, as in the case of the various lives of Christ, or in a study of what was popularly called the background of the New Testament. It was stimulated by the editing of a number of the apocalypses and the presentation of elements of rabbinical teaching. There was little appreciation of the genetic relationship between Christianity and Judaism, and the criticism of Pharisaism contained in the gospels was more or less unconsciously generalized into a description of a religion whose adherents were scattered throughout the Roman Empire. The thirty years which have passed since the first edition of this volume have seen a remarkable change in these respets. The study of the Graeco-Roman religions, especially of the mysteries, has served to place the New Testament in a new historical perspective, and the criticism of biblical sources has tended to a new estimate of the hostility of the New Testament writers to Judaism. Jewish scholars have made distinct additions to our knowledge of their religion. Pharisaism has been redefined and its history traced in an impartial and usually appreciative spirit, and Judaism as represented in the Talmud has been exhaustively discussed. Jewish scholars have shown interest and even pride in Jesus as a Jew, and have made notable contributions to the understanding of the gospel material and the relation of Jesus to contemporary teachers. The result of this study has been, on the one hand to show the genetic connection of the Christian movement with Judaism, and on the other to make more intelligible the reasons for its separation from the nation in which it originated. I have become convinced that it is possible to discover a unity in the entire process from the Old Testament Hebraism to the development of Christianity and rabbinical Judaism. This unity of development is the struggle of the religious leaders among the Jews against absorbtion in a polytheistic culture. - Preface.
