Title: Following Paul along the Way of the Parting of Judaism and Christianity
Author(s): SOARDS, Marion L.
Volume: 100 Issue: 2 Date: 2019
Paul’s letters often recall times when various churches faced and dealt with controversies regarding matters of faith and practice among early believers, particularly concerning the church’s inheritance of certain traditions from Judaism. Remarkably these discordant issues persisted among groups in churches as late as the fourth century, as revealed in the Pseudo-Clementine Literature of that time. These later writings show how at times divisive issues related to the ongoing association of church and synagogue existed among factions of Christians for centuries without a complete parting of the ways.
