Matthew by William Foxwell Albright( Book )

45 editions published between 1971 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,720 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this commentary we have endeavored to take the words of Matthew's gospel seriously and to see behind them a whole cultural, legal, and spiritual tradition growing around the belief that Israel was the chosen people of God and that the coming of the Messiah was the fulfillment of God's revelation of himself to men. This is the conviction with which the nascent Christian community met the world of its day, both Jewish and Greek, and there is no understanding of our NT sources unless the conviction that Jesus was the promised Messiah is treated seriously. We have, therefore, taken considerable pains to place the Jesus of the gospels firmly against his own background, making full use of all the evidence now available -- historical, archaeological, and linguistic. - Preface

Yahweh and the gods of Canaan; a historical analysis of two contrasting faiths by William Foxwell Albright( Book )

38 editions published between 1968 and 2001 in English and German and held by 1,336 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This analysis of contrasting faiths places the religions of Canaan (later Phoenicia) and Israel in their historical settings, treating them as distinct, yet interacting, beliefs. As a prelude to the description of the two religions, the author traces the evolution of poetic style from the Patriarchal Age to the United Monarchy, showing the value of orally transmitted verse for the validation of early Biblical historical tradition. He then demonstrates the Mesopotamian origin of the Patriarchal clans with the aid of new cuneiform date, and shows a close connection between the movement of the Hebrews from the Euphrates Valley through Palestine into Egypt and the work of Moses. Special attention is paid to the early Hebrew family law, the case law of Israel, and the hygienic rules (which are older than commonly thought by scholars). The nature of the Canaanite-Phoenician religion is much clearer than it was a few years ago; its influence on Israel was both greater and less than is usually thought. But the relation was reciprocal, and both gained much in the exchange which set in about the tenth century and continued until the fifth century B.C
The ancient Near East : an anthology of texts and pictures by James B Pritchard( Book )

25 editions published between 1958 and 2011 in English and Spanish and held by 1,318 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"James Pritchard's classic anthologies of the ancient Near East have introduced generations of readers to texts essential for understanding the peoples and cultures of this important region. Now these two enduring works have been combined and integrated into one convenient and richly illustrated volume, with a new foreword that puts the tranlations in context. With more than 130 reading selections and 300 photographs of ancient art, architecture and artifacts, this volume provides a stimulating introduction to some of the most significant and widely studied texts of the ancient Near East, including the Epic of Gilgamesh, the Creation Epic (Enuma elish), the Code of Hammurabi, and the Baal Cycle. For students of history, religion, the Bible, archaeology, and anthropology, this anthology provides a wealth of material for understanding the ancient Near East."--Page 4 of cover
