      I would like to consider the criterion of dissimilarity and a number
      of elements of belief reflected in the Epistles first, and then the
      Gospels, that were not en vogue in Judaism or Hellenism. Cultural
      factors do not explain their appearance and most likely point back to
      the impulse of HJ.

      1. The Kingdom

      It appears in Rom 14:17 and 1 Cor 4:20 but not in the Jewish
      vocabulary of the day.

      Exceptions: War Scroll 1, "this shall be a time of salvation€  '¥an
      age of dominion for all the members of his company."

      War Scroll 12, "for thou art terrible, O God, in the glory of thy
      kingdom."

      Liturgical Fragments 5, "kingdom of his people,"

      Is there enough evidence to support Bruce Chilton's claim that the
      kingdom was a common and well known theologoumenon?

      Chilton, Bruce, "The Kingdom of God in Recent Discussion," in Bruce
      Chilton and Craig Evans, Studying the Historical Jesus (Leiden:
      Brill, 1994), pp. 255-80.

      The kingdom of God is often found on HJ lips and possibly that is
      were they derived its usage as a term.

      Also, if it was taken from Jesus why didn't the EC use KoG more?

      A.J.M. Wedderburn, "Paul and Jesus: The Problem of Continuity," SJT
      38 (1985): 202-3 Places it on their current experience is the
      fulfillment of what HJ said, so they do not need to speak of it.

      Has anyone read David Wenham's _Paul: Follower of Jesus or Founder of
      Christianity?_ (Grand Rapids: Eerdmans, 1995) Does he provide
      convincing evidence for the dependence of HJ by Paul?

      Thanks
