Didache and Judaism

Verne Marcello Del

Didache and Judaism

Verne Marcello Del

$180.00

Hardback
Takes a new look at the Jewishness of the Christian Didache.

- Publisher Marcello Del Verme is Professor of Early Christianity and History of Religions, and Contact Member of EAJS (European Association for Jewish Studies) at the University of Naples 'Federico II' in Italy

- Publisher The perspective nurtured by avoiding the danger of 'generically' referring to the Jewish origins/roots of the Didache could lead to the identification - in some parts or strata of the text which has survived - of groups/factions within the Christian-Jewish community which share the same (Jewish) institutions and re-proposes the same dialectics among different (Jewish) groups. At the same time - yet in a broader sense - such perspective allows the research on the Didache to enter into the rich and fruitful stream of recent studies that aim at exploring the many identities existing in the Ancient Near East, in particular among Jews and Christians with their inner dialectics. This is the inaugural book in a series called "Texts and Studies." The series will examine specific Jewish and Christian texts from the first and second centuries, offering English translations side-by-side with the Greek or Hebrew.
