ISBN: 9783161538513.

Your Price: $127.50

N. T. Wright’s Paul and the Faithfulness of God is the culmination of his long, influential, and often controversial career – a landmark study of the history and thought of the Apostle Paul, which attempts to make fresh suggestions in a variety of sub-fields of New Testament studies. This volume brings together a group of international scholars to critically weigh and assess an array of issues in Wright’s work, including methodology, first-century contextual factors, exegetical findings, and theological implications. In so doing, . . . (more)


Used Book: Reading David and Goliath in Greek and Hebrew Used Book: Reading David and Goliath in Greek and Hebrew

by Benjamin J. M. Johnson
Forschungen zum Alten Testament 2 Reihe - FAT2 82
Mohr Siebeck, 2015. Paper. English.
ISBN: 9783161540562

Your Price: $79.50

The story of David and Goliath existed in antiquity in two variant literary editions, a short version found in the Greek tradition of Codex Vaticanus (LXXB) and a longer version found in the Hebrew tradition of the MT. Benjamin J. M. Johnson proposes that each version is worthy of study in its own right and offers a close literary reading of the narrative of David and Goliath in the Greek text of 1 Reigns 16–18. The author explores a method for reading the Septuagint that recognizes it is both a document in its own right and a translati . . . (more)


Used Book: John the Baptist and the Jewish Setting of Matthew Used Book: John the Baptist and the Jewish Setting of Matthew

by Brian C. Dennert
Wissenschaftliche Untersuchungen zum Neuen Testament, 2 Reihe - WUNT 403
Mohr Siebeck, 2015. Paper. English.
ISBN: 9783161540059

Your Price: $86.50

Although recent discussions on Matthew have emphasized the document's setting within Judaism, these studies have not analyzed how the Jewish figure of John the Baptist functions within this setting. Brian C. Dennert steps into this gap, arguing that Matthew presents Jesus to be the continuation and culmination of John's ministry in order to strengthen the claims of Matthew's group and to vilify the opponents of his group. By doing this he encourages Jews yet to align with Matthew's group (particularly those who esteem the Baptist) and t . . . (more)


Used Book: Knowledge of God in Philo of Alexandria Used Book: Knowledge of God in Philo of Alexandria

by Jang Ryu
Wissenschaftliche Untersuchungen zum Neuen Testament, 2 Reihe - WUNT 405
Mohr Siebeck, 2015. Paper. English.
ISBN: 9783161530067

Your Price: $86.50

How does Philo of Alexandria conceive of the origin and nature of the human mind? How does Philo perceive the potential of the human mind in its ascent to the divine? And how does he imagine the limitations of the human mind in its ascent to knowledge of such divine realities? Raising new questions regarding Philo’s view of divine knowledge, Jang Ryu identifies two distinct but related sets of epistemological ideas in the Philonic library, one in each of his exegetical series of writings. Philonic discourses on mystery initiation and di . . . (more)


Used Book: The <i>Imago Dei</i> as Human Identity Used Book: The Imago Dei as Human Identity
A Theological Interpretation

by Ryan S. Peterson
Journal of Theological Interpretation Supplements - JTISup 14
Eisenbrauns, 2016. Paper. English.
ISBN: 9781575064338

Your Price: $23.95

Theologians and Old Testament scholars have been at odds with respect to the best interpretation of the imago Dei. Theologians have preferred substantialistic (e.g., image as soul or mind) or relational interpretations (e.g., image as relational personhood) and Old Testament scholars have preferred functional interpretations (e.g., image as kingly dominion). The disagreements revolve around a number of exegetical questions. How do we best read Genesis 1 in its literary, historical, and cultural contexts? How should it be read the . . . (more)
