Reviews
"This is a valuable scholarly work that shines new light on the relation of early Christianity to its Jewish matrix."--Donald Senior, Bible Today
"In this stimulating book, Eyal Regev rightly places the Jewish temple at the center of the new messianic movement that will eventually become known as Christianity. The Temple in Early Christianity makes a fresh and original contribution to a very important topic."--Craig A. Evans, Houston Baptist University

"Far too many scholars still read the New Testament in a way that is shaped by the arguments of generations of Christian writers engaged in anti-Jewish polemic. In these disputations the temple has played a major role. In this must-read book, Eyal Regev shows how the temple played a major positive role in many of the early Christian texts that were eventually canonized as the New Testament."--Adela Yarbro Collins, Yale Divinity School
