Title: Hostility to Paul in Pisidian Antioch (Acts 13,45)
Author(s): KILGALLEN, John J.
Volume: 84 Issue: 1 Date: 2003
Throughout Acts 13-14 Luke brings to the reader’s knowledge opponents of Paul who are called 'the Jews'. The present essay attempts to clarify the meaning of this short-hand identification of Paul’s Jewish opponents. It seems best to understand these particular Jews in the light of zealotry which has its roots in centuries of vigorous defense of Jewish religious convictions.
