Bradley (326) asserted that biblical books documented various incidents of early Christians and Jews who practiced asceticism for one reason or the other, the meaningful patterns of their ascetic practice, and the outcomes achieved from each practice. From this perspective, it is notable that the practice of asceticism among the Jewish community was primarily characterized by abstention from food. In the same regard, Salminen (12)findings were consistent with Bradley’s findings, whereby he established that among early Christians, the practice of asceticism was primarily characterized by fasting practices, even though some largely rejected the practice of abstention from impure foods initially practiced by the Jews. Rapp (313) noted that Christians’ approach to asceticism slightly transformed in the sense that they emphasized on sexual abstention and renunciation as their preferred models of practicing asceticism in the religion. However, Ramelli (16) disagreed with the above practice, arguing that from the Hellenistic period onwards, the Greco-Roman philosophy has a strong influence on the Jewish and Christian practice of asceticism.
