Sin was an extremely important and serious concern for the earliest
Christians and the authors of the New Testament writings. Early
Christians came to see the life and ministry of Jesus as
challenging presumptions about the meanings of sin and
faithfulness. This book provides a comprehensive treatment of
different understandings of sin in early Christianity. Jeffrey S.
Siker describes how the earliest Christian voices represented in
the New Testament writings understood "sin" not only as a
theological abstraction, but also as a real reflection upon human
thought and behavior that violated right relationships with both
other human beings and with God. Siker explores language about sin
in relation to the Jewish and Greco-Roman contextual worlds of the
New Testament writings, and examines the development and change of
these worlds in relation to the modern concept of sin.
