From the Hellenists to Marcion: Early Gentile Christianity

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


At the beginning of the second century, Ignatius, bishop of the church of Antioch, was travelling through Asia Minor to Rome, where his zeal to die for the sake of Christ was soon to be satisfied. Prior to his arrival in the capitol, however, he composed several letters, seven of which survive (see Chapter 27 of this volume), and one of which - his Epistle to the Magnesians - preserves a fascinating image of the relations that obtained at this time between Christians and Jews.
