Overview

In this volume, Bauckham presents 24 studies that were originally released between 1976 and 2008. Dealing with many aspects of early Judaic literature and thought, this volume contains discussion on the schism between early Judaism and early Christianity and the importance of early Judaic literature for the study of the New Testament. Richard Bauckham shows that New Testament texts can only be understood properly when studied with Second Temple Judaism in mind as context.

In the Logos edition, this volume is enhanced by amazing functionality. Important terms link to dictionaries, encyclopedias, and a wealth of other resources in your digital library. Perform powerful searches to find exactly what you’re looking for. Take the discussion with you using tablet and mobile apps. With Logos Bible Software, the most efficient and comprehensive research tools are in one place, so you get the most out of your study.
