Journal of the Jesus Movement in Its Jewish Setting (JJMJS) is a relatively new interdisciplinary peer-reviewed online journal, published in cooperation with Eisenbrauns.
A rich variety of Jewish and Christian traditions and identities mutually shaped one another in the centuries-long course of Roman Late Antiquity. A no less rich variety of scholarly approaches – from the history of Christian Origins to that of the late empire, from archaeology to the Dead Sea Scrolls, from Rabbinics to Patristics – has in recent years converged upon this period, the better to understand its religious and social dynamics. JJMJS seeks to facilitate and to encourage such scholarly investigations across disciplinary boundaries, and to make the results of cutting-edge research available to a worldwide audience.
JJMJS is free of charge with completely open access. The journal can be purchased in hard copy from Eisenbrauns.
The editorial committee consists of the following scholars: Prof. Rainer Riesner (University of Dortmund), Dr. Torleif Elgvin (Evangelical Lutheran University College, Oslo), and Dr. Anders Runesson (McMaster University) as co-editors; Knut H. Høyland (Norwegian Free Church) as managing editor; and Andreas Johansson as editorial secretary.
In addition, we have an editorial board consisting of 13 distinguished scholars from around the world.
