In Christian Origins Jonathan Knight gives a comprehensive account of the emergence of Christianity as we know it today. Beginning with the Jewish background to Jesus and his teachings, Knight examines the different factions within Judaism at the time, ultimately identifying eschatology as the common link to Jesus' teaching. Knight presents this apocalyptic agenda as the mainstay of early Christian belief, and uses this as a lens through which to view the development of the Early Church, the writings of Paul and the further growth of the Church.
Â
In examining the birth of Christianity Knight alights on such crucial and intriguing issues as the Synoptic Problem, the historical figure of Jesus and the authorship of the Pauline epistles. These widespread investigations lead him to an enlightening examination of Pauline ethics and the development of sacramental understanding and Christian ministry, propelling the book beyond a basic exegetical reflection to a breathtaking demonstration of the foundations of a major world faith.

Review:

"While this book is targeted at undergraduates, any Christian would find it illuminating and have their understanding of the scriptures enriched."Hereford Diocese, Spring 2010
Choice

"Christian Origins does many things well.  It traces major theological and historical developments beginning with the Bronze Age "Settlement" of Israel in the Land of Canaan and concluding with the second century C.E. rise of Gnosticism, focusing especially on Jesus and Paul.  It also quickly surveys the Jewish soil out of which Christianity grew, focusing on apocalyptic expectation, different parties in Judaism (Pharisees, Sadducees, etc.), the synagogue, the Dead Sea Scrolls, and other important matters.  In spite of covering so much ground, however, Knight emphasizes that this ground is not at all flat, and explores the contours and landmarks of numerous scholarly debates to show that 'our understanding of biblical history is in continual process of reassessment' (p. 20)...To offer an accessible introduction that also accounts for scholarly debates is a very difficult balance to achieve, and Knight is to be commended." -George L. Parsenios, Interpretation, July 2010
Religious Studies Review

"Jonathan Knight's Christian Origins will expand the horizons of anyone who reads it. He builds on his earlier work by reconstructing the origins of Christianity through to the early second century. He focuses on the 'big picture' and provides wide-ranging coverage of the historical and cultural setting, key figures and documents, and key issues. Dr Knight is a sure-footed guide to critical study of the beginnings of Christianity and his clear, readable book will be a great stimulus to students of early Christianity - and their teachers too! A fine achievement!" - Steve Walton, London School of Theology, UK
