Response to Maccoby, Paul and... Time.
Thanks for that information! As for the relationship between Paul and the Jerusalem church - I am reminded of what the Ebionites ("the poor") wrote about Paul (apparently only very few of their writings survived). I am also reminded of what a "Christian"(?) mob did to the famous library of Alexandria. Compare with modern hotheads/activists who also want to eliminate those who do not accept their "truths". I suppose the Vatican will never go back all the way to Jesus' time and cancel any and all teachings/interpretations that were invented after Jesus had been crucified, nor reduce their importance of the crucifixion and of the cross.
