Product Description

Early followers of Jesus said many things about his death and what it meant to them. But did their words mean the same thing then that they do today when repeated by Christians in the twenty-first century? Stephen J. Patterson tries to answer this question historically, placing early Christian claims about the meaning of Jesus death in the context of the ancient Mediterranean basin in which they were first uttered. Why did early Christians say Jesus death was for us ? Why did they call his death a sacrifice ? Where did this language originate? The answers he comes up with are sometimes quite surprising.
