From Jesus to Paul : studies in honour of Francis Wright Beare by Peter Richardson( Book )
14 editions published between 1984 and 2008 in English and held by 549 libraries worldwide
The essays presented here intend to open afresh the complexity of the question of Paul's dependence upon and continuity with Jesus. So much attention has been given in the past to this very difficult problem that new solutions are hard to find and suspect when offered. This collection, however, demonstrates diversity in approach, stance, and conclusion. The essays often take issue with the results of current research-including that of Francis Wright Beare, in whose honour they have been produced. They consider a broad range of the recent literature and show that no satisfactory solution has y

Law in religious communities in the Roman period : the debate over Torah and Nomos in post-biblical Judaism and early Christianity by Peter Richardson( Book )
16 editions published between 1991 and 2008 in English and held by 346 libraries worldwide
"The role and function of law in religious communities in the Roman period -- especially in Judaism -- has been a key issue among scholars in recent years. This thought-provoking work is the first full-scale attempt to write a historical assessment of the scholarly debate concerning this question, focussing on two closely related religious communities, Judaism and Christianity. By juxtaposing the two religions, a clearer understanding of the developments with respect to torah and nomos in Judaism and early Christianity emerges. This insightful work, placing emphasis on the major figures and both the scholarly lines of development and the appropriate lines for future research, will set the debate in a clearer and more succinct manner. It will serve as a critical point of reference for further discussions." [Back cover]

Anti-Judaism in Early Christianity Volume 1: Paul and the Gospels by Peter Richardson( file )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
The period since the close of World War II has been agonizingly introspective--not least because of the pain of reassessing Christianity's attitude to Judaism. The early Christian materials have often been examined to assess their role in the long-standing negative attitude of Christians to Jews. The motivation for the early church's sometimes harsh attitude was partly theological--it needed to define itself over against its parent--and partly sociological--it needed to make clear the line that divided the fledgling group of Christian believers fromt he group with which it was most likely to be c
