Church History, Part 3: The Epistle of Barnabas

The Rev. Adam Young teaches through the history of the church in this video.

“The Epistle of Barnabas tracks the increasing divide between the Rabbinic Jewish Synagogue and the Christian Church. In this short work the author attempts to prove that the whole Old Testament is actually about Jesus and does so through a strong dose of allegory. This raises many questions for us today and shows the starting point of a number of challenges and issues the church will go on to face.”
