Description: A comprehensive treatment of the early Christian approaches to the Temple and its role in shaping Jewish and Christian identity.

The first scholarly work to trace the Temple throughout the entire New Testament, this study examines Jewish and Christian attitudes toward the Temple in the first century and provides both Jews and Christians with a better understanding of their respective faiths and how they grow out of this ancient institution. The centrality of the Temple in New Testament writing reveals the author's negotiations with the institutional and symbolic center of Judaism as they worked to form their own religion.

"Far too many scholars still read the New Testament in a way that is shaped by the arguments of generations of Christian writers engaged in anti-Jewish polemic. In these disputations the temple has played a major role. In this must-read book, Eyal Regev shows how the temple played a major positive role in many of the early Christian texts that were eventually canonized as the New Testament." --Adela Yarbro Collins, Yale Divinity School
