Harold Dollar (Author)
Luke-Acts detailed God's salvation of the Gentiles without their becoming Jewish. Jesus constantly defied the religious-cultural-ethnic-geographic particularity of Judaism by including the marginalized. Hellenist Christians, like Stephen, continued this challenge against Jewish exclusive particularity, leading to the dispersion beyond Judea of the Hellenists, and also of the Gospel. The early church's inertial Jewish particularity became decisively shattered by Cornelius' conversion through a Spirit-guided Apostle Peter, and through Paul's post-conversion gradual paradigm shift towards universality.
