Recent interest in the person and work of James of Jerusalem and in the community he led has sometimes put the apostle Paul in a negative light--a reversal of the more usual pattern in Protestantism. Rather than exaggerating the opposition between these two figures, V. George Shillington seeks to understand them both without prejudice. Examining what can be reconstructed of both men and their respective missions from our sources read critically, Shillington concludes that the tension between those missions indicates a conflict between different politics of identity.Hengel views this reordering of the names as a€œa sign that John continued his activity and was not killed along with his brother. ... At Acts 3, for example, Peter and John, without James, go up to the temple at the hour of prayer and heal a lame beggar lying at the Beautiful Gate of the temple. ... Yet Luke thought it necessary to distinguish him from the other persons with the same name in the Lukan story.
