Martin Hengel spent a lifetime studying the first three decades of Christianity--the span from Christ's ascension to Paul's conversion. Between Jesus and Paul represents a collection of six formative studies by Hengel concerning early Christology, the formation and success of the Christian mission, the functions of hymn singing in the young Church, and Pauline dogma. Drawing upon a wealth of source material, Hengel pieces together the development of Christianity's first, crucial decades. Any student or scholar will find useful points of embarkation for studying Christianity within Between Jesus and Paul.
