The tradition of Judea and Jerusalem:

Return journey to East Berlin, 11.11.1989
Return journey to East Berlin, 11.11.1989

The section concerning Judea deals with internal problems of the Christians. The claim to leadership of the Anabaptist Christians (John) and the Jewish Christians (James) is rejected, 10:35-45.

The Jerusalem surrender of the James Christians leads to the outward climax of Jesus’ ministry in the entry into Jerusalem, 11:1-11, and in the cleansing of the temple, 11:12-26.

Jesus’ ministry is summarized from a Jewish Christian perspective: Jesus stands for a renewed, purified Judaism.
