This course articulates beliefs and convictions about Jesus' significance, and the religious practices in which Jesus featured so centrally. In this course, "Earliest Christianity" refers to Jesus-believers of the first few generations (to mid-second century). The earliest Christian texts are probed with an eye for how Jesus features in beliefs and devotional practices, with a special focus on practices in gathered worship settings. The continuing body of recent scholarship and controversies on these matters is also engaged.
Larry Hurtadois Professor of New Testament Language, Literature and Theology at the University of Edinburgh. He is the author of God in New Testament Theology, The Earliest Christian Artifacts: Manuscripts and Christian Origins, and How on Earth did Jesus Become a God? Historical Questions about Earliest Devotion to Jesus.
