I'm interested in the very first years (Post resurrection) when those followers of JC began to convert others to their group. If Bart Erhman and others have addressed this issue, I've missed it. I'd love to read your take on this subject since your research and writing is so complete and clear. Thanks for your posts.

They didn't. They REMAINED JEWS for many many years. They were, (within Judaism) a sub-sect, and they called themselves "the Way" (as in Acts). In fact we know this for many reasons ... including the fact that at the very end of the First Century, the Jewish High Priest was so pissed at them, (since they all still were Jews), he required the reading of the Expulsion Curses in the synagogues. At the end of the 3rd Century, 400 CE, St. John Chrysostom (the bishop of Constantinople), in his Christmas sermon bitched at HIS "Christian" congregation, and told them to STOP going to the synagogues to worship. The long complex history of the "separation" has been VASTLY over-simplified by ignorant Christians (and Jews), who would rather ignore the realities of History.

Insufferable know-it-all.Einstein God has a plan for us. Please stop screwing it up with your prayers.
