-- The Messianic Apostasy: A Synopsis of the Historical Deviation of Pauline Orthodoxy provides a reappraisal of early Pauline theology in the context of 1st-century Palestine and the Hellenistic world in which Paul lived.
This scholarly text examines the heretical elements within St Paul's theology in the context of his contemporary Judaism and how the early Christian church of the first three centuries of the Common Era drew its influences from him.
Theological scholar, Colin E Davis, investigates the philosophical and religious zeitgeist of the period and Paul's eventual development of the concept of "his Christ figure" along possible Nazarean lines.
