This book provides a comparison of the apostolic fathers and the New Testament that is at once comprehensive and accessible. What genres (letters, miracles stories, etc.) appear in what ways? What apostolic fathers seem to reflect which passages in the New Testament? What themes appear in both bodies of literature? How did the apostolic fathers adopt and adapt images from the New Testament? How do the New Testament and apostolic fathers contribute to our understanding of how early Christians understood themselves in relation to the mother faith of Judaism? After carefully examining images, themes, and concepts found in the New Testament and the apostolic fathers, Jefford posits some general observations and insights about the beliefs of the early church.[Publisher]
