April DeConick discusses the contemporary academic treatment of the anti-semitism of early Christianity and its implications. I think her point about modern attempts to exonerate Judas is important, but at the same time, I do think that during and shortly after the Second Temple Period rather bitter internal conflicts were developing within Judaism. I do not, however, think it has any bearing on early Christian anti-Semitism.
