The Heuristics of Comparison in Biblical Studies

image of Novum Testamentum

Comparison in the study of religion, in particular the study of the early Jesus movement has had an odd history, serious comparison often being eschewed and dismissed in the interest of preserving claims to the sui generis character of early Christianity. This paper argues that comparison should be regarded as heuristic rather than genealogical, and illustrates this by examining two forms of comparison, analytic and illustrative, in each case mobilizing comparisons of early Pauline groups and their practices with Graeco-Roman associations and the fiscal practices of Greek cities.
