In this volume, Joseph A. Fitzmyer provides a new commentary on one of the most important and beloved books of the Bible. A biblical masterpiece and a seminal contribution to Christian theology, First Corinthians was written by St. Paul to the congregation at Corinth in response to a letter asking him for clarification of some of his teachings. In it, Paul discusses the basic tenets of Christian faith, including the Lord's Supper and the Resurrection, and addresses questions about marriage, celibacy, and other down-to-earth matters of moral conduct and Christian living. It also contains Paul's memorable definition of Christian love

The Dead Sea scrolls : major publications and tools for study by Joseph A Fitzmyer( Book )
35 editions published between 1975 and 1990 in English and held by 869 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The student who undertakes the study of the Dead Sea Scrolls soon realizes the vastness of this modern aspect of biblical studies. The bearing of the discovery of these texts on the technical study of the Bible is far from having been exploited. To some people the topic of Dead Sea Scrolls may seem to be 'old hat, ' but when one realizes that we are still waiting for the publication of about 70 percent of the texts from Qumran Cave 4, then it is evident that much important material is still to be brought to light and that the full bearing of this remarkable manuscript-discovery on the OT and NT is still to be worked out ... the Dead Sea Scrolls ... contain not only forms of the text of the Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek Scriptures, but also much other Palestinian Jewish literature of the last two centuries BC and of the first century AD. They bear upon the history and archaeology of the Roman period of Palestine, and the pertinence of them in providing a Palestinian Jewish background for many NT writings is far from having been adequately assessed ... Students ... all too frequently [are] confronted with the problem of trying to find out where the texts to be studied have actually been published, either in a definitive or a preliminary form, and where one must go for secondary literature on them. For many of the texts have been published in partial or preliminary forms in out-of-the-way places, in different periodicals, or in Festschriften; and it is not easy to keep track of them ... In an effort to sort out all this material, to explain the various sigla used for it, to indicate the places of publication of the Dead Sea Scroll material made available to date, to explain the contents of the texts, and to introduce the student to various tools of study, this book has been composed. It includes not only the list of sites where the texts have been found and the full bibliographical titles of the major publications, but also guides to further material: bibliographies of the Dead Sea Scrolls, survey articles, other attempts to list the material, concordances, dictionaries, and grammars for the study of the texts, secondary collections of Qumran texts, translations in modern languages, outlines of more important, longer Qumran texts, and some of the more important bibliography on selected topics of scroll-study or secondary literature about them"--Forward, p. xiii-xiv
The letter to Philemon : a new translation with introduction and commentary by Joseph A Fitzmyer( Book )
17 editions published between 2000 and 2008 in English and held by 854 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The apostle Paul's letter to his friend and fellow Christian Philemon, which focuses on the question of slavery, has long inspired debate. Onesimus, one of Philemon's slaves, has left his master's house and sought refuge with Paul, during which time he has converted to Christianity. In a letter to Philemon, Paul assures his friend that he is sending Onesimus back, but pleads for mercy on the slave's behalf, asking Philemon to treat him as a beloved brother and as he would treat the apostle himself." "Examining Paul's letter within the context of the social, political, and economic realities of the time, Fitzmyer sheds light on the question of whether Paul was suggesting that Onesimus be granted freedom from slavery or whether he was simply advocating a lenient treatment of Onesimus. His insights not only clarify Paul's position but show why the letter is relevant in the Church today. Like his magisterial Anchor Bible commentaries on Romans, Luke, and the Acts of the Apostles, Fitzmyer's commentary on the Letter to Philemon represents the finest of modern biblical scholarship."--Jacket

An introductory bibliography for the study of Scripture by Joseph A Fitzmyer( Book )
26 editions published between 1961 and 1990 in English and Undetermined and held by 609 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The aim of this ... annotated introductory bibliography ... [is] to present a list of titles of reasonable length with which the student who is beginning theology or the study of Scripture in a serious way might do well to familiarize himself/herself. It is hoped, not that such a student would read through all these books, but that he/she would acquire some acquaintance with them. In the various disciplines which make up the complex of Scripture studies there are many books to which the beginner might turn. But often he/she is at a loss in trying to decide where to begin or to discover which are the standard, reputable authors in the discipline in which interest is being stirred. It is the [author's] hope that this revised bibliography ... will guide such beginners to basic titles and enable them to judge others accordingly, and to become acquainted with the most important secondary works"--Preface
The Genesis Apocryphon of Qumran Cave I by Joseph A Fitzmyer( Book )
27 editions published between 1966 and 1971 in 3 languages and held by 586 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Genesis Apocryphon is one of the seven major scrolls which were found in Qumran Cave 1. It is thus one of the so-called "Dead Sea Scrolls," of which hundreds have been found in various states of preservation in eleven caves of the cliffs that parallel the northwest shore of the Dead Sea in the general area about Khirbet Qumran and the Wadi Qumran. It was found in the early spring of 1947. The time has come for a more definitive translation and an evaluation of the various interpretations which have been proposed. This is the purpose of the present commentary. - Preface, Introduction

The Dead Sea scrolls and Christian origins by Joseph A Fitzmyer( Book )
7 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 526 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This volume collects twelve studies on the Dead Sea Scrolls by Joseph Fitzmyer, including a new, never-before-published essay on Qumran messianism. A pioneer in the field of Scrolls research and well known for his work in Aramaic studies and in the Semitic background of the New Testament, Fitzmyer here explores particularly how the Scrolls have shed light on the Qumran community itself, on the interpretation of significant biblical themes, and on the rise of early Christianity. Originally written to appeal to both scholars and general readers interested in the Dead Sea Scrolls, all of the articles in this volume have been updated to take into account current discussions of this extraordinary archaeological find."--Jacket
