  • The Compilational History of the Megillothby Timothy J. Stone

    Mohr Siebeck 2013; US$ 61.07

    Timothy J. Stone explores the canonical shape of the third part of the Hebrew canon, the Writings, challenging the common assumption that the collection is an anthology of unrelated books. First he analyzes the formation and various orders for the Writings in antiquity. Conceptions of sacred literature differed in Judaism, but within temple circles,... more...

  • Completing Christ's Afflictionsby Bruce T. Clark

    Mohr Siebeck 2015; US$ 61.07

    What is the relationship between the preeminent, cosmos-reconciling 'Christ' of Col 1:15-20 and the imprisoned 'Paul' of 1:24-29, who enigmatically 'completes' the former's afflictions as he declares to 'every person' <i>the</i> mystery, long concealed but only now revealed by Israel's God to his holy ones? After finding solid exegetical... more...

  • Conceptions of "Gospel" and Legitimacy in Early Christianityby James A. Kelhoffer

    Mohr Siebeck 2014; US$ 132.64

    The struggles to define what "gospel" was and to bolster a leader's or a group's legitimacy amidst inter-ecclesial competitors are hallmarks of much early Christian literature. Commencing with James A. Kelhoffer's inaugural lecture at Uppsala University, this volume makes available sixteen revised and updated articles, originally published... more...

  • Consumption and Wealth in Luke's Travel Narrativeby James A. Metzger

    BRILL 2007; US$ 151.00

    It is suggested that because persons with access to a large surplus too often elect to spend extravagantly on their own desires and existing means of redistribution such as almsgiving and beneficence were failing to offer any lasting changes that might truly be received as "good news" by the poor, Jesus advocates eliminating personal wealth. more...

  • Convinced that God had Called Usby John B.F. Miller

    BRILL 2006; US$ 173.00

    Employing narrative criticism to provide a comprehensive examination of the dreams and visions in Luke-Acts, this study highlights those passages in which characters interpret their visionary encounters (e.g., the infancy narrative, Saul?s/Paul?s conversion, the Cornelius-Peter episode, and Paul?s dream at Troas). more...

  • Crucifixion in Antiquityby Gunnar Samuelsson

    Mohr Siebeck 2013; US$ 75.39

    Gunnar Samuelsson investigates the philological aspects of how ancient Greek, Latin and Hebrew/Aramaic texts depict crucifixions. A survey of the texts shows that there has been too narrow a view of the "crucifixion" terminology. The various terms do not only refer to "crucify" and "cross." They are used much more diversely.... more...

  • Daniel 10-12 als Schlüssel zum Buchby Regina Wildgruber

    Mohr Siebeck 2013; US$ 75.39

    Ist die Schlussvision des Danielbuches visionäre Zukunftsschau oder historischer Rückblick? Bereits Hieronymus und Porphyrios diskutieren diese Fragestellung äußerst kontrovers. Ab dem 18. Jahrhundert steht der Lektüre von Daniel 10-12 als historische Quelle ein fundamentalistisches Verständnis des Textes gegenüber. Neuere Studien zu Antiochus IV.... more...

  • Das Geheimnis der Gegenwart Gottesby Stefanie Hertel; Bernd Janowski; Cordula Wiest; Enno Edzard Popkes

    Mohr Siebeck 2014; US$ 127.87

    In den biblischen Traditionen begegnen uns verschiedene Vorstellungen von der Gegenwart Gottes. Eine bedeutende Stellung nehmen in diesem Zusammenhang ,Schechina-Vorstellungen' ein, die von der Einwohnung beziehungsweise dem Wohnen Gottes in einem Kultheiligtum oder einer menschlichen Gemeinschaft sprechen. An der Entwicklungsgeschichte der Schechina-Vorstellungen... more...

  • Das Petrusbild im Johannesevangeliumby Tanja Schultheiß

    Mohr Siebeck 2012; US$ 80.16

    Petrus erscheint im Johannesevangelium stellenweise mehr als Stein des Anstoßes denn als Fels. Vor allem neben dem Lieblingsjünger wirkt seine Figur ambivalent. Aus dieser Perspektive hat die Forschung häufig einen Gegensatz zwischen der johanneischen und der 'petrinisch'-großkirchlichen Tradition konstruiert, der erst in Joh 21 aufgelöst werde. Tanja... more...

  • The Death of Jesusby Alexander J.M. Wedderburn

    Mohr Siebeck 2013; US$ 84.93

    Taking up a number of themes and questions touched on in earlier works, the author discusses critically some attempts to interpret the death of Jesus and the assumption that these make about the nature of God and of Jesus. For Jesus himself seems to have left his followers no clear guidance on how to understand his fate, in all probability not even... more...
