The ancient priesthood of Israel is a continually growing area of study in biblical studies. Understanding the context of priesthood and its religious practices gives greater understanding to the entire Old Testament, as well as the New Testament. This five-volume set contains the premier works of prominent scholars in the field of Old Testament studies. The collection focuses on ritual, lifestyle, culture, linguistics, literature, narrative structure, and theological ramifications of Israel’s religious practices. It also examines the cultural influences of Israel’s surrounding nations and empires. Two of the volumes contained are compilations of shorter essays on a variety of subjects. The other three selections are longer works that go into more depth.
This academic collection will be useful to seminary students, professors, and anyone wanting to gain more understanding of the Hebrew priesthood and its traditions.
