In "Judaism in the New Testament, " Bruce Chilton and Jacob Neusner, the most prolific author writing in English today, contend that, contrary to conventional wisdom, early Christians identified not as Christians, but as Jews. Drawing upon parts of the Gospels, the Letters of Paul, and the Letters to the Hebrews, Neusner and Chilton read the early Christianity as a formation of Judaism--a comprehensive, religious system that is nothing short of a Judaic account of Holy Israel.
Bound to be controversial, Neusner, an accomplished Talmudic scholar and Chilton examine the New Testament as a statement of the Torah of Sinai.
This important work provides a provocative and trenchant critique of existing scholarship that seeks to view Christianity as autonomous from Judaism. By examining Christianity as an extension of Judaism, Neusner and Chilton place Christianity in its proper historical, literary and religious context.

Industry Reviews

"This study by two well-established scholars explores a fresh approach to Christian origins." -Regina A. Boisclair, "Journal of Ecumenical Studies "The value of this work lies in the step-by-step comparison and contrast of various responses to critical issues common to nearly all Jewish communities...The approach of this book, while introductory in nature, points the way to the future study of the NT documents." -"Review of Biblical Literature "The book is designed to afflict those who are comfortable in their assumptions about Judaism, Christianity, or both...In sum, it is less an up-to-the-minute presentation of modern NT scholarship and more a book of new ideas suitable for an adventurous teacher and class, or book study group.." -" Religious Studies Review, Vol. 23, April 1997 For the first time, in Judaism in the New Testament, two distinguished scholars take the earliest Christians at their word and ask: "If Christianity
