Abstract:

Ancient Jewish Monotheism and Early Christian Jesus-Devotion harvests from Larry W. Hurtado’s lifetime of study of the New Testament and the development of early Christianity. Hurtado’s career of historical and literary research spans forty years and emphasizes both continuity and discontinuity in the origins of the Christian faith. This volume displays Hurtado’s command of the nature, shape, and implications of Christ-devotion for understanding Christian origins. Even as this collection traces the historical narrative of Christian origins through the lens of Christology and devotion, it also forms an inclusive testament to one scholar’s outstanding contributions to the ongoing discussion of what made early Christianity powerfully unique in its historical setting. Quintessential Hurtado, this volume is a necessity for any attempt to understand the diversity of factors at play in the birth of Christianity. - back cover.
