Research

My main research area is the early Jesus movement's development and its transition from a Jewish movement to a non-Jewish, new religion, Christianity, in the beginning of the second century. In my dissertation (2003) I specifically addressed the issue of the separation between Jews and non-Jews in the early Jesus Movement.

In my second monograph (2009) I treat the emergence of the traditional perspective of the Apostle Paul, which is essentially a normative theological paradigm. I am currently working on a third monograph, based on the hypothesis that Paul never left Judaism, arguing that the conflicts within the movement probably concerned various strategies for dealing with the relations between Jews and non-Jews in the Jesus Movement.

This is an extraordinarily dynamic field of research where there is a lot going on currently. Many old, often confessionally motivated, truths are overturned and need to be replaced by new models based on scholarly points of departure.
