The meaning of the Bible : what the Jewish scriptures and Christian Old Testament can teach us by Douglas A Knight( Book )

12 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 557 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Hebrew Scriptures, or "Old Testament" as Christians call it, has given the world some of the greatest literature known. With this fresh introduction, cutting-edge biblical scholars bring ancient Israel to brilliant Technicolor life. Readers will learn of unlikely heroes and courageous women, royal intrigues and slave rebellions, doubtful prophets and lovesick poets, bloody battles and miraculous triumphs. These retellings will delight observant Jews, faithful Christians, world historians and readers of great literature. Passed down for centuries as spoken stories, compiled around 450 BCE, and finalized probably around the time of Jesus, the various books of the Hebrew Bible took shape under a variety of cultures and time periods, influencing the formation of Judaism, Christianity and Islam. The authors open our eyes to this diverse history shedding new meaning on well-worn texts. They point out how the Hebrew Bible has continually shaped society, and how our own cultural circumstances influence how we interpret it today. The authors highlight the Biblical themes with which readers continue to wrestle: human evil and God's response; war and peace; law and society; politics and economics; belief and practice; women and sexuality; Israel and the Nations; practical wisdom and apocalyptic vision. As relevant today as it was 2,500 years ago, Knight and Levine will open the reader's eyes to the riches of one of the greatest collections of literature known to humankind"--

Temple scroll a sectarian document? / Yigael Yadin
Law, power, and justice in ancient Israel by Douglas A Knight( Book )

8 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 316 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Using socio-anthropological theory and archaeological evidence, Knight argues that while the laws in the Hebrew Bible tend to reflect the interests of those in power, the majority of ancient Israelites--located in villages--developed their own unwritten customary laws to regulate behavior and resolve legal conflicts in their own communities. This book includes numerous examples from village, city, and cult. --from publisher description

Focusing biblical studies : the crucial nature of the Persian and Hellenistic periods : essays in honor of Douglas A. Knight by Jon L Berquist( Book )

10 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 178 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume makes a positive intervention into maximalist/minimalist debates about Israelite historiography by pointing to the events that happened during the Persian and Hellenistic periods. During this historical epoch, traditions about Israel and Judah's founding became fixed as markers of ethnic identity, and much of the canonical Hebrew Bible came into its present form. Concentrating on these events, a clearer historical picture emerges. The entire volume is set within the context of Doug Knight's contributions, which have encouraged a rigorous social-scientific and tradition-historical

Rediscovering the traditions of Israel by Douglas A Knight( Book )

17 editions published between 1975 and 2007 in English and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the latest edition of this classic work, Knight presents a thorough history and analysis of the exegetical method known in ""Hebrew Bible"" studies as tradition history or traditio-historical criticism, the capstone of the historical-critical methods. Beginning in the seventeenth-nineteenth centuries with early notions that some form of oral tradition may have preceded the writing of biblical literature, scholars from the start of the twentieth century forward became increasingly intrigued with the idea that the creative period for much of the material lay in the long and intricate process

Prolegomena to the history of Israel. With a reprint of the article Israel from the "Encyclopaedia Britannica." by Julius Wellhausen( Book )

3 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Julius Wellhausen (1844-1918) first published this work in German in 1878. Reissued here is the 1885 English translation of a revised 1883 version. Intended as a multi-volume work, this first book now stands as a self-contained work. A biblical scholar and orientalist, Wellhausen was professor of theology at Greifswald (until resigning for reasons of conscience) and then professor at Halle, Marburg and Göttingen. An early exponent of scientific philology, he placed the Pentateuch in a historical-social context, setting aside theological traditions. In this work, he sets out his method and argues that the Pentateuch is a synthesis of four independent narratives. He then examines the history of worship, sacrifice, sacred feasts, priests, and the law in ancient Israel. Wellhausen is a central figure in modern biblical studies, his theory dominated scholarship for a century, and his pioneering work remains of great interest in the field
