    In the wake of the conquests of Alexander the Great, the ancient world of the Bible?the ancient Near East?came under Greek rule, and in the land of Israel, time-old traditions and Greek culture met.

    Seit den Anfängen der Kirche dienten die Passionsgeschichten der vier Evangelien auch dazu, die Entfremdung vom jüdischen Volk, alsbald Feindschaft, Verunglimpfung und Verfolgung "der" Juden zu begründen. Gleichzeitig wecken die Passionen Bachs mit ihrer wunderbaren Musik Eindrücke, die Gedanken an Judenverfolgung unerträglich machen, ja... more...

    James Clarke & Co 2014; US$ 38.00

    Anthropomorphic language has provided a conundrum for exegetes and theologians for millennia.

  • Ungewöhnliche Gebeteby Bernd Jaspert

    Traugott Bautz 2014; US$ 8.93
