    Zondervan 2011; US$ 31.99

    The fourth in a series of books that result from annual conferences of the top evangelical hermeneutical scholars in the world.

  • "Isaiah Saw His Glory"by Daniel J. Brendsel

    De Gruyter 2014; US$ 140.00

    The influence of Isaiah on John's gospel has long been recognized but has not received monograph-length attention. This work is a beginning attempt to fill that void. It is argued that John 12:1-43 mirrors Isa 52:7-53:1, highlighting Jesus' identity as Servant and announcing that the Isaianic new exodus is secured by Jesus' rejection/death. John's... more...

  • "It is the Spirit that Gives Life"by Gitte Buch-Hansen

    De Gruyter 2010; US$ 210.00

    Since Origen and Chrysostom, John?s Gospel has been valued as the most spiritual among the New Testament writings. Although Origen recognizes the Stoic character of John?s statement that ?God is pneuma? (4:24), an examination of the gospel in light of Stoic physics has not yet been carried out. Instead the Johannine spirit has been absorbed into the... more...

    De Gruyter 2014; US$ 112.00

    Numerous studies have sought to understand the nature ofeducation and the extent of literacy in ancient Israel, but none has asked what the ancient Israelites thought about teaching. This study is the first to ask how they conceived of the teaching process. It furthers our understanding of the ancient Israelites? concept of teaching, and provides a... more...

  • "What Did Ezekiel See?"by Christman Angela Russell

    BRILL 2005; US$ 156.00

    ?What Did Ezekiel See?? demonstrates how patristic commentators, through careful attention to Ezekiel 1, its relation to other biblical books, and the emerging interpretive tradition, found this text to illuminate theological issues concerning the Bible?s unity, knowledge of God, and Christian virtue. more...

  • "When Gods Were Men"by Esther J. Hamori

    De Gruyter 2008; US$ 105.00

    This study begins with the analysis of a type of divine appearance in the Old Testament, here called ?human theophany?, in which God is described as having a concrete human form. The book includes a delineation of various types of anthropomorphism (such as God appearing in concrete human form, as opposed to only in dreams), analysis of the implications... more...

  • "Why Ask My Name?"by Adele Reinhartz

    Oxford University Press 1998; US$ 94.99

    Anonymous characters, such as Lot's wife, are common in the Hebrew Bible, appearing in a variety of roles. This book examines whether there is a "poetics of anonymity", if so, what its contours are, and how anonymity affects readers' responses to unnamed characters, particularly female characters. more...

  • 'You Are a Priest Forever'by Eric Mason

    BRILL 2008; US$ 117.00

    Of the many proposals for the conceptual background of the priestly Christology of the Epistle to the Hebrews, this book argues that the presentations of the messianic priest and Melchizedek in the Qumran texts provide the closest parallels to Hebrews? thought. more...

  • The "Dead Sea Scrolls"by John J. Collins

    Princeton University Press 2012; US$ 24.95

    Since they were first discovered in the caves at Qumran in 1947, the Dead Sea Scrolls have aroused more fascination--and more controversy--than perhaps any other archaeological find. They appear to have been hidden in the Judean desert by the Essenes, a Jewish sect that existed around the time of Jesus, and they continue to inspire veneration and... more...
