  • Israel's Poetry of Resistanceby Jr. Hugh R. Page

    Fortress Press 2013; US$ 18.99

    Noting that Israel?s earliest responses to earth-shaking changes were cast in the powerfully expressive language of poetry, Hugh R. Page Jr. argues that the careful collection and preservation of these traditions?now found in every part of the Hebrew Bible?was an act of resistance, a communal no to the forces of despair and a yes to the creative... more...

  • The Compilational History of the Megillothby Timothy J. Stone

    Mohr Siebeck 2013; US$ 74.68

    Hauptbeschreibung 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... more...

  • From Jerusalem Priest to Roman Jewby Michael Tuval

    Mohr Siebeck 2013; US$ 103.85

    Hauptbeschreibung In this study, Michael Tuval examines the religion of Flavius Josephus diachronically. The author suggests that because Diaspora Jews could not participate regularly in the cultic life of the Jerusalem Temple, they developed other paradigms of Judaic religiosity. He interprets Josephus as a Jew who began his career as a Judean priest... more...

  • Crucifixion in Antiquityby Gunnar Samuelsson

    Mohr Siebeck 2013; US$ 92.19

    Hauptbeschreibung 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. Hence,... more...

  • Acts of God in Historyby Christoph Ochs; Roland Deines; Peter Watts

    Mohr Siebeck 2013; US$ 173.87

    Hauptbeschreibung The eleven studies in this volume are connected by the conviction that God acts in history and that it remains necessary for biblical exegesis to integrate this into its methodology. Roland Deines presents historical and methodological considerations to trace how God was experienced within historical events and how such events inspired... more...

  • Re-Reading the Scripturesby Christoph Levin

    Mohr Siebeck 2013; US$ 114.56

    Hauptbeschreibung This volume contains 15 papers written by Christoph Levin between 2001 and 2011, four of them unpublished. One main focus is on the Pentateuch, mainly on the oldest comprehensive narrative source, the Yahwist, which was written at the beginning of the Jewish diaspora. One paper gives an outline of the features of this source as... more...

  • The Call of Moses and the Exodus Storyby Jaeyoung Jeon

    Mohr Siebeck 2013; US$ 79.84

    Hauptbeschreibung Jaeyoung Jeon examines and assesses recently suggested models for the formation of the Pentateuch through a redactional-critical analysis of the Call of Moses (Exod. 3-4) and the Exodus story (Exod. 5-13). He observes that Exod. 3-4 was formed through a series of stages of Deuteronomistic composition and redaction, to which some... more...

  • Gender and Purity in the Protevangelium of Jamesby Lily C. Vuong

    Mohr Siebeck 2013; US$ 91.42

    Hauptbeschreibung The Protevangelium of James is arguably the earliest surviving source that exhibits profound interest in Mary, the mother of Jesus. Although frequently cited for later Christian reflections about Mary, gender, and virginity and its influence on popular Christian art, music, and literature, it is not well known outside academic circles... more...

  • Torah and the Book of Numbersby Christian Frevel; Thomas Pola; Aaron Schart

    Mohr Siebeck 2013; US$ 102.99

    The Documentary Hypothesis, which in the 20th century was the standard theory to explain the development of the Pentateuch, has been challenged from different angles. One important text corpus where new proposals have been brought into the debate is the Book of Numbers. The articles in this volume address the formation of the Book of Numbers from the... more...

  • Dangerous Sisters of the Hebrew Bibleby Amy Kalmanofsky

    Fortress Press 2014; US$ 23.99

    Fathers, sons, and mothers take center stage in the Bible?s grand narratives, Amy Kalmanofsky observes. Sisters and sisterhood receive less attention in scholarship but, she argues, play an important role in narratives, revealing anxieties related to desire, agency, and solidarity among women playing out (and playing against) their roles in a patrilineal... more...
