Abstract :
Many early Christians took up the temple discourse of Jeremiah (Jeremiah 7), but the manner in which it was received clearly differed. Texts after the Bar Kochba crisis use Jeremiah 7 to create polemics against Jews sacrificing at the temple and celebrating temple feasts. Although the main purpose of this article is to show shifts in the interpretation of Jeremiah 7 in early Christian literature, it also investigates whether Mira Balberg’s theory of a new understanding of cult in Early Judaism offers a suitable explanatory horizon for interpretations of Jeremiah 7 after 135 CE.
