Historians know virtually nothing about the two decades following
the crucifixion of Jesus, when his followers regrouped and began to
spread his message. During this time the man we know as the apostle
Paul joined the movement and began to preach to the gentiles.
Using the oldest Christian documents that we have--the letters of
Paul--as well as other early Christian sources, historian and
scholar James Tabor reconstructs the origins of Christianity. Tabor
reveals that the familiar figures of James, Peter, and Paul
sometimes disagreed fiercely over everything from the meaning of
Jesus' message to the question of whether converts must first
become Jews. Tabor shows how Paul separated himself from Peter and
James and introduced his own version of Christianity, which would
continue to develop independently of the gospel message that Jesus,
James, and Peter preached.
Paul and Jesus gives us a new and deeper understanding of Paul as
it illuminates the fascinating period of history when Christianity
was born out of Judaism and became the religion we recognize
