Description: This volume of essays, from an internationally renowned group of scholars, challenges popular ways of understanding how Judaism and Christianity came to be separate religions in antiquity. Essays in the volume reject the belief that there was one parting at an early point in time and contest the argument that there was no parting until a very late date. The resulting volume presents a complex account of the numerous ways partings occurred across the ancient Mediterranean spanning the first four centuries CE. Contributors include Philip S. Alexander, Dale C. Allison Jr., John M. G. Barclay, Lori Baron, Albert I. Baumgarten, Martinus C. de Boer, Daniel Boyarin, Susan Grove Eastman, Bart D. Ehrman, Suzanne Watts Henderson, Jill Hicks-Keeton, Susan Miller, Claudia Setzer, Marion L. Soards, Matthew Theissen, Lucas Van Rompay, Timothy Wardle, and Michael Winger.

Subjects: Bible, New Testament, Apocrypha and Pseudepigrapha, Mishnah, Talmudic and Rabbinic Literature, Early Christian Literature, Literature, Methods, Historical Approaches, History, History of Judaism, Greco-Roman Period, Early Church Origins, Literary Approaches, Social-Scientific Approaches
