Josephus' Interpretation of the Books of Samuel (Hardcover): Michael Avioz Josephus' Interpretation of the Books of Samuel (Hardcover)
Michael Avioz
R2,057 Discovery Miles 20 570 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Since the seventies, no study has examined the methodologies of Josephus' rewriting of an entire biblical book as part of his Judean Antiquities. This book attempts to fill this vacuum by exploring Josephus' adaptation of the books of Samuel, penetrating the exegetical strategies he employs to modify the biblical stories for his intended audience. Through meticulous comparison of the biblical narrative and Josephus' Antiquities, broader issues - such as Josephus' attitude towards monarchy and women - gradually come to light, challenging long-held assumptions. This definitive exploration of Josephus' rewriting of Samuel illuminates the encounter between the ancient texts and its relevance to scholarly discourse today.

The Violence of Scripture - Overcoming the Old Testament's Troubling Legacy (Paperback): Eric A Seibert The Violence of Scripture - Overcoming the Old Testament's Troubling Legacy (Paperback)
Eric A Seibert
R521 Discovery Miles 5 210 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

No one can read far in the Hebrew Bible without encountering depictions of violence carried out by human beings, sometimes in the name of God, or indeed violence carried out or commanded by Godfrom Cains murder of Abel to the slaughter of Canaanite populations and much. For those who read the Bible as sacred scripture, such depictions can pose tremendous moral and theological challenges. Eric A. Seibert faces these challenges head-on, offering perspectives on the roles human and divine violence play in different parts of the Old Testament, evaluating the biblical presentation of virtuous violence, and proposing strategies for reading the Bible out of a commitment to nonviolence. At last he offers soundings in biblical texts where we encounter alternative voices, often neglected, that seek and announce ways of peace.

An Introduction to Israel's Wisdom Traditions (Paperback): John L. McLaughlin An Introduction to Israel's Wisdom Traditions (Paperback)
John L. McLaughlin
R478 R387 Discovery Miles 3 870 Save R91 (19%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

It can be a challenge to understand wisdom's place in Israel's salvific history, but John L. McLaughlin makes this complicated genre straightforward and accessible. This introductory-level textbook begins by explaining the meaning of wisdom to the Israelites and surrounding cultures before moving into the conventions of the genre and its poetic forms. The heart of the book explores the wisdom books themselves: Proverbs, Job, Qoheleth (Ecclesiastes), and the deuterocanonical Ben Sira and Wisdom of Solomon. McLaughlin also points to where wisdom is expressed in the historical books and in the New Testament. Designed especially for beginning students, An Introduction to Israel's Wisdom Traditions offers an informed, panoramic view of wisdom literature's place in the biblical canon.

Mayjee Philip
R1,574 R1,187 Discovery Miles 11 870 Save R387 (25%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Scholarly consensus on the relationship of the Letter to the Hebrews to the Old Testament is far from universal or uniform. This book aims to address this area in Hebrews scholarship, which is lacking a critical account of the dependence of Hebrews on the Old Testament, especially Leviticus, in constructing a meaningful text. The book examines how the author of Hebrews uses the textual levitical tabernacle theme to construct the central motif of the heavenly tabernacle in Hebrews. In analysing the ways in which Hebrews relates to the Old Testament, the author makes use of literary theorist Gerard Genette's concepts of transtextuality and transformation. These concepts help set in relief the variegated textual relationships Hebrews has with the Old Testament in general, and Leviticus in particular, and the transformations that are central to constituting meaning in Hebrews.

Jeremiah & Lamentations - The death of a dream and what came after (Paperback, Revised edition): Michael Wilcock Jeremiah & Lamentations - The death of a dream and what came after (Paperback, Revised edition)
Michael Wilcock
R239 R192 Discovery Miles 1 920 Save R47 (20%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Jeremiah was set aside to be the prophet to the nations. Set apart to be a voice that was not afraid to stand up for sharing the message of the Lord to those aiming headlong for judgement. There are responsibilities for those who belong to God. However God still loves his people even when they have sinned against him. We are reassured that hope can be found even in times of suffering. Lamentations tells Jerusalem's story of suffering, starvation, and despair, till finally the walls are breached, the survivors deported, the goods looted and the city torched.

Axis of Glory - A Biblical and Theological Analysis of the Temple Motif in Scripture (Hardcover, New edition): Dan Lioy Axis of Glory - A Biblical and Theological Analysis of the Temple Motif in Scripture (Hardcover, New edition)
Dan Lioy
R1,272 R971 Discovery Miles 9 710 Save R301 (24%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

In Axis of Glory, Dan Lioy conducts a biblical and theological analysis of the temple motif as a conceptual and linguistic framework for understanding Scripture. His investigation takes a fresh look at the topic, assesses a representative group of the Judeo-Christian writings through the various prisms of secondary literature, and offers a synthesis of what appears in the biblical data. The author notes that references and allusions connected with the temple motif crisscross the entire literary landscape of Scripture. An additional finding is that the presence of the shrine concept is comparable to a series of rhetorical threads that join the fabric of God's Word and weaves together its seemingly eclectic and esoteric narratives into a richly textured, multicolored tapestry. The author concludes that the Bible's theocentric and Christocentric emphases are heightened in their intensity and sharpened in their focus due to the temple motif making its way through the pages of the sacred text, beginning with the opening chapter of Genesis and ending with the final chapter of Revelation.

Reading the Poetry of First Isaiah - The Most Perfect Model of the Prophetic Poetry (Hardcover): J. Blake Couey Reading the Poetry of First Isaiah - The Most Perfect Model of the Prophetic Poetry (Hardcover)
J. Blake Couey
R1,877 Discovery Miles 18 770 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Reading the Poetry of First Isaiah provides a literary and historical study of the prophetic poetry of First Isaiah, an underappreciated but highly sophisticated collection of poems in the Hebrew Bible. Informed by recent developments in biblical studies and broader trends in the study of poetry, Dr J. Blake Couey articulates a fresh account of Biblical Hebrew poetry and argues that careful attention to poetic style is crucial for the interpretation of these texts. Discussing lineation, he explains that lines serve important rhetorical functions in First Isaiah, but the absence of lineated manuscripts from antiquity makes it necessary to defend proposed line divisions using criteria such as parallelism, rhythm, and syntax. He examines poetic structure, and highlights that parallelism and enjambment create a sense of progression between individual lines, which are tightly joined to form couplets, triplets, quatrains, and occasionally even longer groups. Later, Dr Couey treats imagery and metaphor in First Isaiah. A striking variety of images-most notably agricultural and animal imagery-appear in diverse contexts in these poems, often with rich figurative significance.

Nahum - A New Translation with Introduction and Commentary (Hardcover): Duane L. Christensen Nahum - A New Translation with Introduction and Commentary (Hardcover)
Duane L. Christensen
R1,073 Discovery Miles 10 730 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

This volume represents a significant breakthrough in the study of Hebrew prosody with important implications for understanding the formation of the canon of the Hebrew Bible. Duane Christensen, a renowned biblical scholar, offers a detailed analysis of the Hebrew text of Nahum and demonstrates the intricate literary structure and high poetic quality of the work. Nahum is a book about God's justice and portrays God as strong, unyielding, and capable of great anger. This view of God's nature stands in contrast to that found in Jonah, another book in the section of the Hebrew Bible known as the Book of the Twelve Prophets, which presents God as "compassionate, gracious . . . [and] abounding in steadfast love." Christensen shows how Nahum and Jonah present complementary aspects of God's nature, each essential for an understanding of the divine being. The commentary includes the most extensive bibliography published to date of works cited.

Gregory Lee Cuellar
R814 R622 Discovery Miles 6 220 Save R192 (24%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Voices of Marginality is theoretically grounded in the theology of the diaspora, which according to Fernando F. Segovia has been forged in the migratory experience of American Hispanics. This theological perspective views Judean exiles (587 B.C.E.) and contemporary Mexican migrants as part of a recurring diasporic human experience. The present analysis «reads across from the exile and return envisioned in the poetry of Second Isaiah (40-55) to the corridos (ballads) about Mexican immigration to the United States. More specifically, the diasporic categories of exile and return in Second Isaiah inform our reading of exile and return in the Mexican immigrant corridos. Conversely, the rhetorical ability of these corridos to transmit a collective Mexican identity for immigrants in the United States provides a compelling lens for understanding the images of exile and return in Second Isaiah. Ultimately, both literary productions reflect voices of marginality.
