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

    Mohr Siebeck 2014; US$ 157.62

    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...

  • Luke-Acts and Jewish Historiographyby Samson Uytanlet

    Mohr Siebeck 2014; US$ 95.25

    In this book, Samson Uytanlet states his observation that there is an unnecessary disjunction between Luke?s theology and literature in previous studies on Luke-Acts: Luke?s theology is typically studied in light of Jewish writings while Luke?s literature is studied in relation with Greco-Roman works. The author shows that there are theological, literary,... more...

    Mohr Siebeck 2014; US$ 78.24

    The projected Historical and Theological Lexicon of the Septuagint will offer historical studies of Septuagint words, retracing their usage from early Greek authors, over <i>koine</i> Greek and the Septuagint translation itself, into Jewish-Hellenistic and early Christian literature. The latter two of these phases were the object of a... more...

  • Crucifixion in the Mediterranean Worldby John Granger Cook

    Mohr Siebeck 2014; US$ 157.62

  • Paul's Witness to Formative Early Christian Instructionby Benjamin A. Edsall

    Mohr Siebeck 2014; US$ 88.42

    Benjamin A. Edsall provides a new approach to the classic quest for the preaching and teaching (or the <i>kerygma</i> , <i>didache</i> and catechesis) of the early Church. His method draws on ancient communication practices whereby communicators rely on knowledge they expect their audience to possess. This reconstruction... more...

  • Literature or Liturgy?by Clemens Leonhard; Hermut Löhr

    Mohr Siebeck 2014; US$ 77.23

    Information about Ancient Christianity is preserved in literary texts. These sources contain passages that became liturgical texts during their history of reception while the context or form of some of them could suggest their ritualized use in the churches of New Testament times. The essays in this volume elaborate on the question of how ancient pieces... more...

Chronicles recasts Israel's earlier histories from the vantage point of vigorous commitments to the temple and its supporting institutions (the priesthood and royal house), and draws out the numerous ways that those institutions... more...
