Committed to Jesus's prophecy--'The Kingdom of God is at hand!'--Jesus's followers were, in their own eyes, history's last generation. But in history's eyes, they became the first Christians. The author follows this in five chapters, and writes an epilogue in which she reflects on the history (told in 11 sides, to page 194). She notes that we know nothing about the fate of the original Christian assembly in Jerusalem, and precious little about James; a little more about Peter; more, but still not much, about Paul.She traces their changing perspectives as events unfolded in unanticipated ways, and in so doing, she offers a necessary corrective to a number of prevailing views of Jesus, Paul, and the Gospel writers. In this way, she advances studies of both Judaism and Christianity. Following the epilogue are acknowledgements, a timeline, and notes, that extend to p Paul Fredriksen, Aurelio Professor of Scripture emerita at Boston University, wrote this book while in Jerusalem, where she is a member of the Faculty of Humanities at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem She is also a fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Science.
