In late antiquity, as Christianity emerged from Judaism, it was not only the new religion that was being influenced by the old. The rise and revolutionary challenge of Christianity also had a profound influence on rabbinic Judaism, which was itself just emerging and, like Christianity, trying to shape its own identity.

He even shows that some of the ideas that the rabbis appropriated from Christianity were actually reappropriated Jewish ideas.

The fist part of the title is not descriptive of the book's topic and should just be just titled How Judaism and Christianity Shaped Each Other. The author is highly combative towards previous researchers; time which would be better spent covering what he is discussing. Overall, the concepts presented in the book are informative, well researched, and thoroughly analyzed. It provides a good perspective of the heresies that were present prior to and during the writings of the Rabbinic Judaism texts. ( )
