About the Book
This book written by Israeli scholars reflects the centrality of ‘the Parting of the Ways’, an issue of focal concern to the question where and when came into being the boundary line separating between Judaism and Christianity. It is reflective of the diversity within the research community in Israel, much like in the field of research worldwide.
