Abstract What continuity or discontinuity is there between the remarkable devotion to Jesus as divine figure in earliest Christianity and the sorts of homage/ reverence that was given to the earthly Jesus? The intra-canonical Gospels exhibit notable differences in the ways that they portray the homage given to Jesus in his ministry, particularly in the language that they prefer. Mat thew is distinctive in a programmatic portrayal of the homage given to Jesus by various figures as 'worship'. Collectively, however, the Gospels confirm that the worship of Jesus in 'post-Easter' Christian circles repre sents a significant development beyond the sorts of homage given to Jesus during his ministry.
