Communities Around Jesus: Disciples, Apostles and other Followers in Early Christianity

Using Paul's letters and parts of the gospels, we will discuss emerging communities of disciples of women and men who were followers of Jesus in cities and communities of Asia Minor, Syria, Rome and Jerusalem.

Dr. Deirdre Good is professor of New Testament at The General Theological Seminary, specializing in the Synoptic Gospels, Christian Origins, noncanonical writings and biblical languages (Greek and Coptic). An American citizen, she grew up in Kenya and keeps the blog On Not Being a Sausage (notbeingasausage.blogspot.com). She has written books on Matthew's portrait of Jesus (Jesus the Meek King, 1999), on Mary traditions in Judaism, Christianity and Islam (Mariam, the Magdalen and the Mother, 2005), on households and family in the time of Jesus (Jesus' Family Values, 2006) and most recently, Reading the New Testament, A Fortress Introduction with Bruce Chilton (2010). She also blogs for Episcopal Cafe.
