The Collision of Early Christianity and Judaism in Revelation 11 is an academic essay that provides an in-depth exegesis of Revelation 11:1–13. It contains solid arguments for the connection of the churches in Smyrna and Philadelphia and the two witnesses in chapter 11 and reveals the conflict between the Christian churches and Jewish synagogues. Part one presents historical background, part two discusses the role of the temple in Jewish identity, and part three interprets the narrative of the two witnesses. This volume will benefit readers interested in issues surrounding the relationship between the Christian and Jewish communities in the late first century.
