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.
