#SPOT1# Asher and sh- in the Book of Ecclesiastes

by W. Randall Garr
American Oriental Series Essays - AOSE 14
American Oriental Society, 2017. Paper. English and Hebrew.
ISBN: 9780940490925

Your Price: $39.50

Just arrived, September 12

In this work, W. Randall Garr provides an exhaustive discussion of ʾašer and -š in the book of Ecclesiastes. Unlike earlier studies, he argues that the alternation between ʾašer and -š reflects semantic and pragmatic factors in each of the three clause types in which these relativizers appear: relative clauses, complement clauses, and adverbial clauses. In relative clauses, each represents a different relativization strategy. ʾAšer is the stronger nom . . . (more)

In order to quantity these steps, the volume deals extensively witih methodology through a series of algorithms by which the energetic investment in a construction project can be quantified. These algorithms are applicable in general to structures in stone and mud brick a . . . (more)

Gott wahrnehmen Gott wahrnehmen
Die Sinne im Johannesevangelium

by Rainer Hirsch-Luipold
Wissenschaftliche Untersuchungen zum Neuen Testament, 1 - WUNT 374
Mohr Siebeck, 2017. Cloth. German.
ISBN: 9783161548994

Your Price: $201.00

Surprisingly, the “spiritual gospel” places a special emphasis on the senses. It details a tasting of exceptional wine, the stench of death, a finger in the risen Christ's wounds as an affirmation of new life. Rainer Hirsch-Luipold interprets these stories as the Johannine answer to the fundamental obstacle in the quest for knowledge of God: the fact that “nobody has ever seen God” (John 1, 18). Based on the idea of an incarnation of the divine Logos, the Fourth Gospel formulates a christological aesthetics of the Invisible. Since the u . . . (more)


Die Nichtigkeit des Menschen und die Übermacht Gottes Die Nichtigkeit des Menschen und die Übermacht Gottes
Studien zur Gottes- und Selbsterkenntnis bei Paulus, Philo und in der Sto

by Gudrun Holtz
Wissenschaftliche Untersuchungen zum Neuen Testament, 1 - WUNT 377
Mohr Siebeck, 2017. Cloth. German.
ISBN: 9783161550089

Your Price: $253.50

Regard for the self has recently been rediscovered as one of the central themes of Hellenistic philosophy. Taking the Jewish theologian Philo of Alexandria and the Apostle Paul as her main examples, Gudrun Holtz shows how theological anthropology was developed in contrast to contemporary philosophical conceptions of the self, particularly to the Stoa. The common core of the theological-anthropological conception of both authors can be captured in the phrase “not of people, but of God”. The Pauline doctrine of justification proves itself . . . (more)


The Eucharist: Its Origins and Contexts The Eucharist: Its Origins and Contexts
Sacred Meal, Communal Meal, Table Fellowship in Late Antiquity, Early Judaism, and Early Christianity

Edited by David Hellholm and Dieter Saenger
Wissenschaftliche Untersuchungen zum Neuen Testament, 1 - WUNT 376
Mohr Siebeck, 2017. Cloth. English and German.
ISBN: 9783161539183

Your Price: $433.50

These three volumes are the results of two conferences on the Christian eucharist and its context in the traditions of sacred and communal meals; the first conference was held at the University of Kiel, the second at the University of Agder's Study Center at Metochi (Lesbos). Scholars from all around the world form an international, interdisciplinary and interdenominational collaboration from various fields including History of Religion, Classics, Old and New Testament, Judaism, Patristics, Archeology, and History of Art.

Der früheste Evangelist Der früheste Evangelist
Studien zum Markusevangelium

by Eve-Marie Becker
Wissenschaftliche Untersuchungen zum Neuen Testament, 1 - WUNT 380
Mohr Siebeck, 2017. Cloth. German.
ISBN: 9783161548611

Your Price: $208.50

In this collection of essays Eve-Marie Becker explores Mark – the earliest gospel writer – as a literary author who, by shaping a gospel narrative, creates a genre sui genres which can be placed in the broader frame of ancient history-writing. The approach to Mark's Gospel presented in this volume thus aims at contextualizing the earliest gospel narrative in terms of literary history and genre studies in the field of early imperial history-writing. Second, against the background of more recent discourses about “history” in the ar . . . (more)


The Gospel of Matthew on the Landscape of Antiquity The Gospel of Matthew on the Landscape of Antiquity

by Edwin K. Broadhead
Wissenschaftliche Untersuchungen zum Neuen Testament, 1 - WUNT 378
Mohr Siebeck, 2017. Cloth. English.
ISBN: 9783161544545

Your Price: $208.50

The Gospel of Matthew is an oeuvre mouvante (a work in process), and the dynamics of this process are essential to its identity and function. This understanding of the Gospel of Matthew stands in distinction from the long history of research centered on Matthew the author and his design for the gospel. Focused instead on tradition history—the history of composition and transmission—Edwin K. Broadhead's approach keeps open the dialectical engagements and the conflicting voices intrinsic to the Gospel of Matthew. As a result, the c . . . (more)


Maidens, Magic and Martyrs in Early Christianity Maidens, Magic and Martyrs in Early Christianity
Collected Essays I

by Jan N. Bremmer
Wissenschaftliche Untersuchungen zum Neuen Testament, 1 - WUNT 379
Mohr Siebeck, 2017. Cloth. English.
ISBN: 9783161544507

Your Price: $253.50

In this work, Jan N. Bremmer aims to bring together the worlds of early Christianity and those of ancient history and classical literature – worlds that still all too rarely interlock. Contextualising the life and literature of the early Christians in their Greco-Roman environment, he focusses on four areas. A first section looks at more general aspects of early Christianity: the name of the Christians, their religious and social capital, prophecy and the place of widows and upper-class women in the Christian movement. Second, the chron . . . (more)


The Use of Scripture in the Apocryphon of John The Use of Scripture in the Apocryphon of John
A Diachronic Analysis of the Variant Versions

by David Creech
Wissenschaftliche Untersuchungen zum Neuen Testament, 2 Reihe - WUNT 441
Mohr Siebeck, 2017. Paper. English.
ISBN: 9783161529832

Your Price: $86.00

David Creech explores at length the Apocryphon of John's ambivalent treatment of the Jewish and Christian scriptures. Although Moses is explicitly corrected at five points in the text, Genesis' account of creation is nonetheless the basis for the Apocryphon's cosmogony and anthropogony. Its uneven treatment of the biblical text is the result of a dispute between the authors of the Apocryphon and other early Catholics. At the earliest stage of the text the Christians who wrote and read the Apocryphon worshiped along . . . (more)
