The influence of the 'aposunagogos' on the writings of the New Testament according to Walter Schmithals. The essay puts the view of Schmithals' of the historical circumstances behind a great part of the writings of the New Testament. He makes 'aposunagogos' the terminus technicus referring to what happened in the background. 'Aposunagogos' refers to the exclusion of Christians, confessing Jesus as the Messiah, from the synagogue in the years following the destruction of the temple in 70 A D by the Romans. Several texts are being discussed reflecting the power of Schmithals' exegesis.
