Historical Knowledge In Biblical Antiquity

Out Of Stock

Product description

Fourteen fresh essays by leading scholars (J. Neusner, B.D. Chilton, W.S. Green, L.H. Schiffman, A.J. Avery-Peck, G.W.E. Nickelsburg, S. Mason, C. Dewald, M. Aviam, G.G. Porton) ask two questions: What was the purpose of studying the past in biblical antiquity, and what sorts of information did the historians who produced Scripture in Judaism and Christianity seek in accomplishing their purpose? Ancient Israelite and Greek historiography set the stage for a survey of how diverse Christian and Judaic writers defined the historical mission and carried it out. The Hebrew Scriptures, Gospels, Dead Sea scrolls, apocryphal and pseudepigraphic writers, Josephus, the Mishnah and the Talmuds all are asked to answer those questions. Type: Paperback () Category: Books > Biblical Studies ISBN / UPC: 9781905679003/1905679009 Publish Date: 4/1/2007 Item No: 144140 Vendor: Canterbury Press Norwich
