Herodian Judaism and New Testament Study
Horbury, William

Tübingen: Mohr Siebeck, 2006 pp. xii + 268. $159.50

Series Information
Wissenschaftliche Untersuchungen zum Neuen Testament, 193
Edited by Jörg Frey

Description: This book presents a selection of William Horbury's recent essays. Those collected in Part I seek to trace the profile of Herodian Jewish piety, its Greek and Roman setting, and its reflection in Christianity. Monotheism, mysticism, perceptions of Moses and the Temple are all considered in this way, and a Jewish context for the term 'gospel' and the institution of 'the Lord's Supper' is suggested. Part II treats modern New Testament study, with special attention to its links with study of the classical and Jewish traditions, and a survey on British study in its international setting.

Subjects: Bible, New Testament, Literature, Methods, Historical Approaches, History, History of Judaism, Greco-Roman Period
