Abstract From the end of the first century, and all throughout the second, there emerges a notion of Christian origins as a separate period, comprising Jesus’ earthly life and the work of the Apostles and their disciples. Thewriters, working with the material they dispose, construct the memory of this ensemble, aiming either tojustify its connection to their own time, or to relate their problems to origins, the words and acts of Jesusof Nazareth. Several Christian communities affirm their unbroken continuity with these origins, and claim to be the only who are faithful to the Gospel and Jesus Christ. Referring to the acts, deeds and words of Jesus, found in the Memoirs of the Apostles and their disciples as already announced in the Scriptures, Justin Martyr succeeds in defining the Christian identity as being distinct from that of heretics and the Jews, and proposes it as an alternative for the Greco-Roman world. This research concentrates therefore on the memoirs of Jesus and the Apostles found in the authentic writings of Justin Martyr, the Apology and the Dialogue with Trypho, and on their affiliation with the Holy Scriptures, especially the Law and the Prophets.
