Although the social sciences have gained their place in the theological faculties, a sociological approach of New Testament problems is not yet granted. This especially concerns the separation of Christianity from Judaism. The popular model of ‘the parting of the ways’ suggests a separation of friends because of differing views. Rather, referring to a sociological study about the correlation between social polarisation and violence, this article presents the hypothesis, elsewhere to be tested in detail, that it was the social polarisation process generated by the Jewish wars against Rome which triggered the separation of Jews and Christians.
