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.
