  from jesus to christ: the first christians: the jesus movement
Something that did change their perspective on who Jesus was and what he would mean for the future of the movement, and this is what we know as the resurrection.
One of the earliest indications that we have of the Jesus movement is what we tend to call "wandering charismatics," traveling preachers and prophets, who go on saying the kingdom of heaven is at hand, continuing the legacy of Jesus' own preaching, apparently.
So the disciples of Jesus must have lived in those texts and must have brought an understanding of the explanation of suffering on earth with them that was already part of their worship life, of their discussions of their meditations at the time.

 The family in the Jesus movement Biblical Theology Bulletin - Find Articles
The purpose of this study is to explore the possible continuity between the Jesus movement before Jesus' death and the movement of his disciples after his resurrection in their attitude towards the family.
This research reveals the importance of the Jesus group and of the households that their preaching reached, in explaining the continuity between the pre- and post-Easter periods of the Jesus movement in their attitude towards family.
Jesus gives a positive assessment of the duties of sons and daughters toward their elderly parents (Mark 7:6-13) and of marriage (Mark 10:2-12), and he even proposes family relationships as a model that his disciples should follow (Mark 3:31-35; 10:28-30).

 Christianity & the Jesus Movement (The Anthropik Network)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-24)
Jesus and his followers walk from town to town, gathering food (foraging) from planted fields (Matthew 12:1), and engages in reciprocal relationships with friends who give him food and shelter.
Jesus was likely executed for just such an anti-civilized stance, which formed a much more potent form of revolution than any of the other rebellions of the time--a fact that several Roman authors (e.g., Lucian) noted, proving that the Romans were aware of this.
The Jesus Movement survived on reciprocity in a very tribal sort of community (Acts 4:32-37), but this was quickly subverted by Paul, who co-opted the movement within a few decades.

 Historical Jesus
In a nutshell, the movement holds that it's impossible for the Gospel accounts of Jesus to be historically accurate, because they record things that simply can't happen, like people walking on water, food multiplying, and people being raised from the dead.

Jesus will not only return at the end of time to judge the world, but is already now exercising a saving presence in the world.
As we move to a review of historical and contemporary understandings of the Jesus movement and the Christ mystery, we need to keep alive the memory of the historical Jesus--the one who preaches the kingdom and suffers and dies--as well as the risen Christ of glory who is proclaimed in easter faith.

 Jesus Creed » What is the Emerging Church?
The emerging church or emergent church is a diffuse movement which arose as a “conversation” (in emerging church terminology) in the late 20th century in Western Europe, North America, and the South Pacific.
Because grace animates the movement, there is less of a border between the “church” and the “world” and more of a fluid recognition of a common humanity where each person is in need of God’s restoring grace and it is the task of the local community to be that grace.
I can’t speak for the emerging movement, but I can say that the moving away from narrow traditionalism is not a departure from truth but a departure from the capturing of truth in categories that cannot hold the fullness to which we are called.

 The Hollywood Free Paper
Jesus is coming." The phenomenon that captured nationwide press coverage in 1971 had begun as a quiet ripple in America's youth culture as far back as 1967, appearing simultaneously in San Francisco, Los Angeles and Seattle.
Where much of the Jesus Movement including the Hollywood Free Paper was often criticized as simplistic and superficial, Sparks' group engaged UC Berkeley's radical intellectuals, presenting the peaceful "inner revolution" of Jesus as a rational alternative to violent political revolution.
Perhaps the most important legacy of the Jesus Movement was its return to the simple Gospel and the New Testament prototype of Christianity, centered in the life and teachings of Jesus and demanding a personal relationship with Him, placing a renewed emphasis on discipleship, evangelism and Bible study.

If it could indeed be shown that the bones of Jesus were found in an ossuary, that he had a wife and a child, and that Mary, his mother, bore other children, and her bones were also buried with her son, then for many the whole structure of Christianity is threatened.
Jesus’ only allusion to the single life, found in Matthew 19:10-12, is really about the prohibition against divorce and taking a second wife while the first was alive, forbidden by him, echoed by Paul, and also part of the teachings of the Dead Sea Scrolls sect.

 History of the Jesus Movement
In Seattle, the Jesus People Army was born in response to a vision experienced by evangelist Linda Meissner, who had seen an "army of teenagers marching for Jesus." On the Sunset Strip, evangelist Arthur Blessitt opened the His Place nightclub and coffeehouse as a 24 hour way station for youth.
Though the Jesus People Movement had effectively ended by the mid-1970s, there were still a host of churches, parachurch organizations, apologetics ministries, converts, Jesus musicians, independent evangelists, and missionary workers that had been funneled into Protestant and Catholic denominations of all theological skews.
The Jesus People Army was the vision of Linda Meissner, a former staff worker of David Wilkerson's Teen Challenge ministry, who saw 'an army of young people marching for Jesus.' While on crusade through the Pacific Northwest, the members of the band wandered into a park to heckle Carl Parks' preaching.
