Mind the Gap synopsis
Do you want to understand Jesus of Nazareth and his apostles and the rise of the first Christianity? Reading the Old Testament is not enough, writes Matthias Hennes in this small volume that targets the Bible student. To understand the Jews in the Second Temple period, it is necessary to read what they wrote, and what Jesus and his followers may have read behind the Hebrew Scriptures.
Hinze presents the gap between the Old and New Testaments and some of the writings produced during this period (the Old Testament, Apocrypha and Pseudepigrapha, Dead Sea Scrolls); discusses how these texts were read from the reform to the present, emphasizing the importance of discovery Qamran is directed to meet the student with selected texts from each group; then he presents basic ideas found in New Testament texts that can not be understood simply without these "simplified" Jewishwritings - Christ, angels and demons, law and resurrection of the dead. Finally, he discusses the role of these writings in "parting ways" betweenJudaism and Christianity.
The mind of the gap widens from the curious views of students about early Judaism and early Christianity and welcomes them into deeper study.
