Sacred Writings

  • Jonah and the Meaning of Our Livesby Steven Bob

    The Jewish Publication Society 2016; US$ 19.95

    The Book of Jonah stands unique among the biblical books of the prophets because it is almost entirely narrative. And, in contrast to all the other prophets portrayed as admirable individuals who bravely speak God?s word, Jonah stands out as flawed and fleeing from God. We are drawn to Jonah because God gives him an opportunity to redeem himself.... more...

    Oxford University Press 2016; US$ 97.99

    How did Jews understand sacred writing before the concepts of "Bible" and "book" emerged?

  • Christ Died for Our Sinsby Jarvis Williams

    James Clarke & Co 2015; US$ 28.50

    In Christ Died for Our Sins, Jarvis J. Williams argues a twofold thesis: First, that Paul in Romans presents Jesus’ death as both a representation of, and a substitute for, Jews and Gentiles. Second, that the Jewish martyrological narratives in certain Second Temple Jewish texts are a background behind Paul’s presentation of Jesus’ death.... more...

  • Evil and Deathby Beate Ego; Ulrike Mittmann

    De Gruyter 2015; US$ 168.00

    Jewish anthropological beliefs during the Hellenistic-Roman period are an important but previously neglected area of biblical exegesis and Jewish studies.

  • A Mirror of Rabbinic Hermeneuticsby Giuseppe Veltri

    De Gruyter 2015; US$ 140.00

    Rabbinic hermeneutics in ancient Judaism reflects this multifaceted world of the text and of reality, seen as a world of reference worth commentary. As a mirror, it includes this world but perhaps also falsifies reality, adapting it to one's own aims and necessities. This book explores the rabbinic concern with texts as the main area of... more...
