The Hellenization of Judaea in the First Century after Christ

  • Author: Martin Hengel
  • Translator: J. Bowden
  • Publisher: SCM
  • Publication Date: 1990
  • Pages: 124

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

This short but highly significant study is the sequel to Martin Hengel’s classic work Judaism and Hellenism. Hengel argues that in the New Testament period, Hellenization in Palestine was so widespread that the distinction between Hellenistic Judaism and Palestinian Judaism is not just invalid—the very idea of “Hellenism” is so vague as to be meaningless. Presenting a wealth of evidence available here for the first time, Hengel explores the implications of his argument for New Testament study.

Studies in the Gospel of Mark

  • Author: Martin Hengel
  • Translator:J. Bowden
  • Publisher: SCM
  • Publication Date: 1985
  • Pages: 222

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

In this volume, Martin Hengel argues for the traditional view of the origin of the Gospel of Mark—that Mark wrote in Rome in AD 69, basing his work on the tradition handed down to him by Peter. Including an appendix on the reliability of the synoptic tradition by distinguished classical philologist Wolfgang Schadewalt, Studies in the Gospel of Mark is a direct challenge to the radical views of modern New Testament scholarship.
