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

    Mohr Siebeck 2013; US$ 73.77

    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...

  • The Compilational History of the Megillothby Timothy J. Stone

    Mohr Siebeck 2013; US$ 60.26

    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$ 83.81

    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$ 74.39

    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$ 140.31

    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...

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

    Mohr Siebeck 2013; US$ 83.11

    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...

  • Die Verklärung Jesu nach dem Markusevangeliumby Adrian Wypadlo

    Mohr Siebeck 2013; US$ 130.89

    Hauptbeschreibung Die Verklärungsperikope des Markusevangeliums (Mk 9,2-8) gilt als großes Rätsel der neutestamentlichen Wissenschaft. Tatsächlich stellt diese Erzählung den Ausleger in ihrer sonderbaren Mischung aus Faszination und Befremden vor große interpretatorische Herausforderungen. Welche Textgattung liegt hier vor und wie verhält es sich... more...

  • Kultmetaphorik und Christologieby Christian A. Eberhart

    Mohr Siebeck 2013; US$ 93.22

    Hauptbeschreibung Welche christologischen und soteriologischen Vorstellungen wurden im Neuen Testament mit der Bezeichnung Jesu als Opfer und der Rede von Sühne vermittelt? Weit verbreitet ist derzeit die Auffassung, es gehe um Jesu stellvertretenden Sühnetod. Diese Motive bereiten heutzutage nicht nur Verständnisprobleme. Viele finden sie anstößig,... more...

  • Christ Absent and Presentby Peter Orr

    Mohr Siebeck 2014; US$ 73.77

    In his letters, the Apostle Paul can express both the confidence that Christ dwells in the believer (Rom. 8:10) and the longing for Christ to return so that believers can finally be united with him (1 Thess. 4:17). Peter Orr develops the case that this under-explored relationship between the presence and absence of Christ sheds important light on Paul?s... more...
