Summary "This volume offers a new interpretation of Justin Martyr's Dialogue with Trypho (c. 160 CE), which is the oldest preserved literary dialogue between a Jew and a Christian and a key text for understanding the development of early Judaism and Christianity. This study argues that whereas scholarship has routinely cast the Dialogue in terms of 'Christianity vs. Judaism,' its rhetorical aims and discursive strategies are considerably more complex, because Justin is advocating his particular form of Christianity in constant negotiation with rival forms of Christianity. Reading the Dialogue in the way proposed in this study explains many of its puzzling features and sheds new light on key passages. Because the Dialogue is a critical document for the early history of Jews and Christians, this monograph sheds new light on a range of important questions, including the emergence of the notion of heresy and the 'parting of the ways' between Jews and Christians"-- Provided by publisher
