The first decades of Christianity were exclusively Jewish, as the Talmuds themselves attest, recording this great first-century Jewish schism of interpretation of Judaism. It was a parting of the ways, but BOTH WAYS WERE COMPLETELY JEWISH, AT THIS POINT, both keeping the Torah, both keeping the Sabbath. The one taught "be ye wise as serpents, but innocent as doves", the other shed innocent blood, and was driven out by the Romans. Indeed the religion of the hilltop youth and that of Falwell are two sides of the same hawkish coin, having nothing to do with the religion of the doves, which forbade the use of the sword to attain any goal of their religion, the choice of many first-century Jewish believers, regarding themselves as "completed Jews". There is a profound pacifist, libertarian strain in this branch of Judaism, introduced by John the Baptist, completed by Yeshuah, and confirmed by Paul (Shaul) of Tarsus, abandoned by Rome and Constantinople.
