    This course provides a historical study of the origins of Christianity by analyzing the literature of the earliest Christian movements in historical context, concentrating on the New Testament. Although theological themes will occupy much of our attention, the course does not attempt a theological appropriation of the New Testament as scripture.   Early Christian hospitality also transformed Greco-Roman hospitality by focusing it toward the needy rather than the rich, elevating the role of women, and undercutting the motivation of personal gain through costly reciprocity. In an age of great social stratification, early Christian hospitality was a great equalizer.

    Volumes in Emory Studies in Early Christianity (ESEC) investigate early Christian literature within the context of Mediterranean literature, religion, society, and culture. ESEC authors use interdisciplinary methods informed by social, rhetorical, literary, and anthropological approaches to move beyond limits within traditional literary.   Bart D. Ehrman is the author of The Triumph of Christianity and the author or editor of more than 30 books, including the New York Times bestsellers Misquoting Jesus and How Jesus Became God.

    Thus the Book of Revelation seems to describe an enemy of the early Christians that is a complex combination of two enemies who conspire against the early Church, and later turn on each other. This was historically the fact at the time of 70 AD when the Jews and Rome went to war against one another.   N.T. Wright, a retired Anglican bishop and now chair of New Testament and early Christianity at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland, recently released his latest book, "The New Testament in Its World: An Introduction to the History, Literature, and Theology of the First Christians," co-authored with Michael F. Bird. | N.T. Wright Biblical scholar N.T. Wright .
