Diversity and Development in the Early Church: In Search of a Diagram
James McGrath posts a diagram on diversity and development in the early church by Darrell Pursiful (modified from Raymond Brown). I think the diagram is okay, but the problem is that Hebraic/Hellenistic can and do overlap (let's not return to Baur, Bultmann et al), Peter is part of the Hebraic tradition, and even the John tradition is also Hebraic. Can anyone come up with a better diagram that visibly displays diversity and development in the early church?
