    The council which decided this case was composed of apostles and teachers who had been prominent in raising up the Jewish and Gentile Christian churches, with chosen delegates from various places. Elders from Jerusalem and deputies from Antioch were present, and the most influential churches were represented.   Galatians: Paul’s letter to the Galatians shows that there was clearly tension between the Jewish Christians and the Gentiles who were trying to join the Christian Community, most of the Jewish Christians were against the idea of converting Gentiles .

    Get this from a library! Jewish law in Gentile churches: Halakhah and the beginning of Christian public ethics. [Markus N A Bockmuehl] -- "Why did the Gentile church keep Old Testament commandments about sex and idolatry, but disregard many others, like those about food or ritual purity? If there were any binding norms, what made them.   That same law was the barrier between Jew and Gentile and is still applicable to Jews, but for those now in the church, both Jews and Gentiles, it has been fulfilled and abolished in Christ. Those who teach that the church is Israel go on to claim that the church is heir to all of the promises given to Israel.

    Another weakness of both Noachic and Leviticus theories is that, if the list were based on the law of Moses, it would imply that the law of Moses was still in force — four laws for gentiles, and laws for Jews. This would perpetuate Jew-gentile distinctions in contradiction to Peter’s statement in and Paul’s in Eph.   Acts of Apostles, part 6: The gentile mission to waive the Jewish food laws and eat with gentile Christians until a party of Jewish Christians arrived. for gentile Christian churches to go.

Marcus Bockmuehl has two major concerns as the basis of his scholarship: first, the prominent role of Jewish law in the ethics of Jesus and the early church, and, second, the principles and concerns by which Christians formulated an ethic for Gentiles.

The book is divided into three parts. Acts 10 – Jews and Gentiles. In ActsPeter expresses his hesitancy to enter the home of a Gentile. I think the key here is not simply talking with a Gentile, but receiving hospitality form a Gentile.

Primarily this was because of food, but some Jews in the first century did in fact avoid contact with Gentiles in order to avoid impurity. The rest of Acts chronicles the fulfilment of threefold programs: (i) the mission in Jerusalem fails as Jewish leaders reject the message and persecute the Christians, (ii) the mission to Samaria and Judea serves as a transition to the Gentile mission, (iii) the Gentile mission succeeds with the conversion of Cornelius, the establishment of a Gentile church in Antioch, the Jerusalem Conference that frees Gentiles converts from the Law.

Jesus is going right into the heart of Gentile Country and he is healing people and goes on to feed the in chapter 8, which I am thinking at this point are Gentiles just a guess. In we see that Jesus and his disciples got back in the boat and went back to the other side of the sea (back to the predominantly more Jewish side of the sea).

Jewish Law opens with a preface that offers a summary of each of the nine chapters. The book includes 60 pages of bibliography entries and literature indices.

Part 1 consists of the first four chapters and seeks to demonstrate that the early church did not reject Jewish halakhah as reasoned from the : Rich Menninger. For centuries, Jews have followed a distinct set of religious laws, as identified and articulated by their greatest prophet, Moses. The greater public largely recognizes these laws as the Ten Commandments, which are also followed by Christians today, although the first five books of the Hebrew Bible, or the Torah, specifies hundreds of laws and is much more extensive and detailed.

If Gentiles convert to Judaism, then the church is Jewish; if a Jew rejects the Law and acts like a Gentile, then the church is “Gentile.” Paul’s point is that there is something different than Judaism happening in the present age, the “church” is not a form of Judaism, nor is it a Gentile mystery religion.

Being a Jew I came to the subject matter already having an understanding of Jewish law and my interest had already lead me to investigate the laws of Noah which were considered binding by Jews on Gentiles at the time Gentile Churches came into existence.

The author was a Christian scholar and coming to the topic from the opposite direction.5/5(1). by Markus Bockmuehl.

This did not bring Gentiles under the Jewish law, but delivered from it both Jews and Gentiles coming into the church. God has “broken down the middle wall of partition between [Jew and Gentile]; having abolished in His flesh the [Mosaic] law of commandments contained in the ordinances; for to make in Himself of [Jew and Gentile] one new man.The council comes in the center of Luke’s inspired history.

His book begins with the Jewish church, dominated by Peter in chapters 1 to 5. The book ends with Paul’s mission to the Gentiles, in chapters 16 to Chapters 6 to 15 form a transition, alternating between Jewish and Gentile growth.
