The three apostles Peter, Paul, and John are the most important starting point for understanding the beginning of Christianity. Each brings a different background and language: Peter’s Old Testament imagery, Paul’s connection with Greek culture, and John’s independent lyricism. This fascinating book paints a vivid picture of these three apostles, exploring what they had in common as well as significant differences, demonstrating their continuing relevance for today.

The authors begin by discussing the pre-Christian context and finish by tracing the esoteric streams of Petrine, Pauline, and Johannine Christianity during the first few centuries after Christ’s physical life on Earth. They show, above all, that all three are needed to truly approach the reality of Jesus Christ.
