The Temple in Early Christianity: Experiencing the Sacred

Eyal Regev and John Collins


The first scholarly work to trace the Temple throughout the entire New Testament, this book 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 writing reveals the authors' negotiations with the institutional and symbolic center of Judaism as they worked to form their own religion.

Keywords: Temple, New Testament, Christian attitude, Jewish attitude, first century, faith, Judaism
