Safrai, S., Sternm M., Flusser, D., van Unnik, W.C.

Produced by a full committee of the world’s most distinguished scholars of early Christianity, rabbinic studies, and ancient history, this volume explores the intricate relationships between Christians and Jews in the Roman Era. Each chapter highlights a specific componenet of their common social constructs and explores how both groups shaped one another while living in Rome’s shadow. Broadly, this volume explores the political, historical, and cultural elements that structured first-century life in Israel and defined how Jews and Christians understood themselves as God’s people. Published in 1974, this book and subsequent volumes in the Compendia Rerum Iudaicarum ad Novum Testamentum series remain highly influential in first-century studies.
