Details

This volume includes a compilation of essays from experts in Judaic studies involving such issues as the origins of Aramaic laws and the parallel between the Targum and the Dead Sea Scrolls. These essays attempt to draw connections among Judaism, Christianity, and ancient Greco-Roman religions. For example, in one essay, the author examines the multiform Jewish heritage of early Christianity.

Author Bio

Jacob Neusner (1932–2016) was a preeminent scholar of ancient Judaism and one of the most published authors ever, with more than 900 original volumes to his name. He was educated at Harvard University, the Jewish Theological Seminary of America, the University of Oxford, and Yale University. He was research professor of theology and senior fellow of the Institute of Advanced Theology at Bard College. Neusner’s work has been highly influential, if sometimes controversial. He pioneered applying “form criticism” to Rabbinic texts, and aimed at a humanistic and academic reading of ancient Jewish literature.

Nesuner’s works include the Jacob Neusner Jewish Studies Bundle (99 vols.).
