The Religion of the Apostles: Orthodox Christianity in the First Century | Logos Bible Software

Yes, I broke down and have this in the dead-tree version. I recommend it as a take on early Christianity with less Western bias than we often see.

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."

MJ. Smith:

I went ahead and got the Kindle. And I agree it belongs in Logos.

I don't know enough about Orthodox to say whether it's Orthodox, or the specific author (from a favorite town in Louisiana!). His lead-in is similar to Fredriksen as regards judaism and Paul. But when he started off on Paul as Jesus = YHWH and a perfectly comfortable jew, and then the Merkubah, my impression was he's on his own. As a minimum, you'd need to be already familiar with the Text and 2nd Temple.

I wonder where David Paul would end up, on this approach.

Agree. Been in since 11/25/21.

Meanwhile, Jesus kept on growing wiser and more mature, and in favor with God and his fellow man.

DMB:
Orthodox to say whether it's Orthodox

Antiochian is looser than Byzantine Orthodox which is why in the 70's and 80's whole congregations could become Antiochian Orthodox. But I saw nothing to make me question his Orthodoxy.
