Partings: How Judaism and Christianity Became Two Paperback – December 1, 2014 by James H Charlesworth (Author), Bruce Chilton (Author), Shaye J.D. Cohen (Author), James D.G. Dunn (Author), Steven Fine (Author), and more (Author), Hershel Shanks (Editor) ( Biblical Archaeology Society)

If you have a desire to understand the origin of Christianity, this book may start you on the way to understanding the way it happened. I truly doubt that the formation of a completely new religion was the intention of Jesus.It is much more likely he really thought that he was about to restore the Kingdom of Israel, as he promised the twelve that they would rule with him ( Luke 22:30).

This book traces the compelling and often muddled history of Judaism and Christianity through their formative years, from the shared background of first-century Judaism and all its varieties to the diverse interactions and experiences of Jews, Christians and Jewish-Christians under centuries of Roman rule. More than a dozen chapters, authorized by the worlds'foremost scholars in early Judaism and Christianity, tell the story of a complex and evolving theparting of the ways that occurred in different ways in different places and at different times.
