  • The So-Called Jew in Paul's Letter to Romansby Rafael Rodriguez; Matthew Thiessen

    Fortress Press 2016; US$ 77.99

    The historical problem of Romans is its ?double character?: concerned with issues of Torah and the destiny of Israel, the letter is explicitly addressed not to Jews but to Gentiles.

    De Gruyter 2016; US$ 140.00

    Did Luke formulate a Parousia-free eschatology because early Christianity had experienced a crisis of faith from the delay in the Parousia and abandoned their earlier expectations?

  • The Saving Cross of the Suffering Christby Benjamin R. Wilson

    De Gruyter 2016; US$ 140.00

    Through an exegetical analysis of the passion references in Luke and Acts, this book shows how Luke presents the death of Jesus both as a mechanism of atonement within God?s plan of salvation and as a marker of Jesus? identity as the messiah.

    De Gruyter 2016; US$ 182.00

    In Jerome?s influential Latin Vulgate translation of the Book of Judith, which dates to ca. 400 AD, only about half of the text accords with the earlier Greek translation known as the Septuagint.

    OUP Oxford 2016; US$ 94.99 US$ 81.69
