Monotheism – Still a Misused Word in Jewish Studies?

I recently finished a paper for a conference up in Canada and thought I would share it. It’s a response to Peter Hayman’s 1991 Journal of Jewish Studies article, “Monotheism—A Misused Word in Jewish Studies?” You can find my paper here. I appreciate any comments.

    Thanks for posting this. I am not educated enough to fully understand it, but it does seem clear to me that 1) monontheism in New Testament times had to mean something at least slightly different than it means in modern times else the notion of Jesus’ lordship from heaven would not have gone down so easily among the believing Jews in the book of Acts, and 2) the concept of the Trinity was not explicitly and clearly taught in either testament so we need some better understanding of the NT disciple mindset of the deity of Christ than superimposing on it a modern-day trinitarian mindset which quite obviously was not there.
