Building on the Ruins of the Temple: Apologetics and by Adam Gregerman

By Adam Gregerman

within the quick centuries after the Romans' destruction of Jerusalem and its Temple in 70 CE, Jews and Christians provided contrasting non secular causes for the razing of the locus of God's presence on the earth. Adam Gregerman analyzes the perspectives present in 3 early Christian texts (Justin's Dialogue with Trypho, Origen's Contra Celsum, and Eusebius' Proof of the Gospel) and one rabbinic textual content (the Midrash on Lamentations), all of which emerged within the related position - the land of Israel - and round the comparable time -the first few centuries after 70. the writer explores the methods they interpret the destruction which will end up (in the case of Christians), or make it most unlikely to disprove (in the case of the Jews) that their group is the folk of God. He demonstrates the apologetic and polemical features of chosen reasons, for claims to the covenant made through one neighborhood excluded these made through the other.
