Adiel Schremer is an associate professor of ancient Judaism in the department of Jewish History at Bar-Ilan University in Israel. He speaks on Jewish-Christian relations in antiquity and the role Christianity occupied in the formation of ancient Judaism; this is also the topic of his book in progress, in which he discusses Talmudic efforts to encourage Jewish avoidance of Christian teachers and teachings.
