This article considers the impact of paganism and Christianity in the daily life of Jews. It looks at the influence of Hellenism and Hellenisation on paganism, and then studies paganism in the early rabbinic period. The next section discusses Christianity, from its first three centuries to its development after Constantine. The discussion reveals that the Jews considered Christianity to be another form of paganism.
