9780060616601: The Birth of Christianity: Discovering What Happened in the Years Immediately After the Execution of Jesus

John Dominic Crossan, expert on the historical Jesus, explores the lost years of earliest Christianity, those immediately following the execution of Jesus.

Context and text come together to challenge long-standing assumptions about the role of Paul and the meaning of resurrection, and to forge new understanding of the birth of the Christian church.
