Christian Origins (NT 1.1)

Ephesus TheatreThis is the first of what will be numerous posts on early Christian history and literature, especially the New Testament, in connection with an undergraduate course I am teaching this term. Early Christianity and religions of the ancient Mediterranean are my specialty, so there are already many entries here on this blog that will be relevant to Christian origins which you may wish to browse (click and consult the various categories on the right-sidebar).

Come again, and feel free to post questions or comments.

    I love the ambiguity of your Photo statement: “Theatre at Ephesus, where Christianity was established quite early (by Phil).” I thought it was Paul who established the early Christian community there, but I could be proven wrong .

    Sorry, after the word “wrong” in my comment above I put the word “grin” within angled brackets, forgetting that the use of angled brackets was a html programming code. So, please accept a {grin} after the comment above.

    Best wishes for the new year.

    Hello Bob. I took your comment as a joke even without the grin. I’m tempted to leave the ambiguity. All the best. Phil
