So, the aim in this short discussion is to illustrate what sorts of data early Christian manuscripts present to students of Christian origins. Within the space available, I shall merely offer some selective illustrations of the sorts of features of early Christian manuscripts that may be of significance for larger historical issues, including Jewish and Christian relations in the first three centuries. I have offered a more extended discussion of these matters in the form of a modest-sized book
