Overview

This is a completely revised and expanded edition of a classic text. Drawing on recent work on legal and didactic material and including more literary interpretation, Blenkinsopp traces the course of two related key traditions—law and wisdom—throughout the history of Israel in the biblical period. He demonstrates their essential lines of continuity with classical Jewish thought and early Christian theology.

    Liberal aproach to the theme, if you’re looking to something closer to the reformed assumptions, tham it’s nor for you.

    just curious: the overview blurb provided by Logos says that this book "demonstrates their essential lines of continuity with classical Jewish thought and early Christian theology" however, neither the subtitle ("...early Judaism" nor the chapter titles/subpoints specifically mention Christian theology. So, is the blurb an overstatement? I am guessing that there likely would be a connection between Judaism and Christian theology...but I'd like to know if this book *literally* draws those connections.
