FROM THE RECTOR: OUR PRAISE AND THANKSGIVING
In my seminary years we learned that the sharp division between the Christian and Jewish communities, as reflected in most of the New Testament, arose after the Great Jewish Revolt (AD 66–70). It seems that for some time scholars have placed the hardening of this division toward the end of the period called “Late Antiquity,” AD 200–700 (C. E. Fonrobert, “Judaizers, Jewish Christians, and Others,” The Jewish Annotated New Testament , 555). So I wasn’t surprised to find, at the beginning of Through the Eye of a Needle: Wealth, the Fall of Rome, and the Making of Christianity in the West, 350–550 AD (2012) by Peter Brown, that Professor Brown writes about commonalities in the earlier part of this period.
