    Among the most challenging biblical figures to understand is Jeroboam son of Nebat, the first monarch of northern Israel whose story is told in 1 Kings 11-14.

  • Rejected Prophetsby Jocelyn McWhirter

    Fortress Press 2014; US$ 28.99

    Although several scholars have written about how Luke portrays Jesus and the apostles as prophets, no one has yet provided a comprehensive theory as to why Luke?s protagonists resemble the prophets.

Through the use of this imagery in the letter, the writer critiques... more...

    Mohr Siebeck 2012; US$ 44.55

    Hauptbeschreibung The earlier consensus concerning the Pentateuch and the Deuteronomistic History has been significantly challenged in recent scholarship.

  • Gott als Vater der Jünger im Johannesevangeliumby Frances Back

    Mohr Siebeck 2012; US$ 78.82

    Hauptbeschreibung In der johanneischen Theologie tritt die Rede von Gott als "dem Vater" im Gegenüber zu "dem Sohn" besonders hervor, ebenso die Rede von der Gotteskindschaft der Glaubenden (Joh 1,12). Doch fällt dabei auf, dass im Johannesevangelium erst in 20,17, im Rahmen der österlichen Erscheinungen, explizit von Gott als Vater der Jünger gesprochen... more...

    Mohr Siebeck 2012; US$ 78.82

    Hauptbeschreibung In this study, Jonathan Huddleston examines Genesis as a rhetorical whole, addressing Persian-era Judean expectations.
