Stoicism in early Christianity( Book )

8 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 281 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Highlighting the place of Stoic teaching in early Christian thought, an international roster of scholars challenges the prevailing view that Platonism was the most important philosophical influence on early Christianity.

The Beloved Disciple in conflict? : revisiting the Gospels of John and Thomas by Ismo Dunderberg( Book )

19 editions published between 2005 and 2011 in English and held by 229 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Was the Gospel of John written in critical response to the Gospel of Thomas, an early collection of Jesus's sayings? Or was it directed to the Christians among whom Thomas originated? Ismo Dunderberg challenges these views, arguing that the two gospels were written at about the same time but without knowledge of each other. He also offers a thorough discussion of the identity and functions of the enigmatic Beloved Disciple in the Gospel of John, throwing new light on this figure by comparing it to other bèloved' disciples of Jesus in early Christian literature. -- PUBLISHER DESCRIPTION

Valentinus (100-160 C.E.) was an influential Gnostic opposed to the practices that would later become part of the Christian orthodoxy.

Abstract: John and the Synoptics : studies on John 1-9
Gnostic Morality Revisited by Ismo Dunderberg( Book )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and German and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While the early Christian texts discussed in this book are often treated as "gnostic" ones, they are here approached as witnesses to the views of educated Christians engaged in dialogue with philosophical traditions. Following the idea that ancient philosophical schools provided their adherents with ways of life, Ismo Dunderberg explores issues related to morality and lifestyle in non-canonical gospels and among groups that were gradually denounced as heretical in the church. He deals with the soul's progress from material concerns to a life dominated by spirit, the control of emotions, the avoidance of luxury, the ideal "perfect human" as a tool in moral instruction, classifications of humankind into distinct groups based on their moral advancement, and Christian debates about the value of martyrdom. In addition, he offers a critical review of some recent trends and attitudes in New Testament scholarship
