The Jewish Temple : a non-biblical sourcebook by Robert Hayward( )

19 editions published between 1996 and 2002 in English and held by 1,942 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book uncovers the meaning and significance of the Jewish Temple and its Service during the last centuries of its existence. The non-biblical sources indicate that the Temple and its rites were seen as holding the universe together, providing order and meaning in a world which would overwise easily lapse into chaos
Interpretations of the name Israel in ancient Judaism and some early Christian writings : from victorious athlete to heavenly champion by Robert Hayward( )

15 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in English and held by 1,709 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book explores how Jews, and some Christians, understood the meaning of 'Israel' up to the Talmudic period, and the implications of those understandings for Jewish identity and self-definition represented by the various documents discussed. In its two accounts in Genesis of how Jacob became 'Israel', the Hebrew Bible offered tremendous scope for interpreters: correspondingly, the opening chapter lays open the multi-faceted exegetical possibilities of the Hebrew texts. Succeeding chapters trade developments of these possibilities by key groups and individuals. Thus, the Septuagint linked 'Israel' to notions of struggle and ultimate victory enabling Jacob-Israel and his descendants to take possession of the 'land of Israel', as well as to an idea that 'Israel' implied strength of angelic character. Jubilees, by contrast, stressed Israel's affinity with ministering angels, emphasizing the priestly and royal nature of the title. Philo took 'Israel' to mean 'one who sees God', while Josephus resurrects notions of struggle and victory, offering a complex rewriting of the biblical material in an attempt to comprehend both Jewish and Roman sensibilities. Rabbinic texts used the Genesis material to speak of Israel as a nation loyal to the commandments, this time directing the notion of struggle against Rome and its celestial representatives. C.T.R. Hayward elucidates all these Jewish interpretations, which are based on learned etymologies of the name Israel, draw upon a vast range of post-biblical traditions, and speak to particular times and places. His two final chapters discuss Christian use of Jewish tradition: one argues for its use by the writers of John's and Luke's Gospels, while the other records some key patristic treatments of the name Israel."--Jacket
Targums and the transmission of scripture into Judaism and Christianity by Robert Hayward( )

13 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 1,532 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These essays explore ancient Jewish Bible interpretation preserved in the Aramaic Targums, bringing it into conversation with Rabbinic and Christian scriptural exegesis, and setting it in the larger world of ancient translations of the Bible
Severus of Antioch by Pauline Allen( )

11 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 867 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Although Severus was an active lobbyist at the imperial court, a pastor, administrator and scholar, his works have come down to us only in fragments in the original Greek after they were condemned by imperial edict in A.D. 536. This volume translates a key selection of his writings and introduces readers to Severus's life and times, his thought, homiletic abilities, and his pastoral concern as expressed through his letters and hymns. Severus is a truly pivotal late-antique figure, who is here for the first time rehabilitated as such."--Jacket
Profiling Jewish literature in antiquity : an inventory, from Second Temple texts to the Talmuds by Alexander Samely( )

11 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 489 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This text introduces a new system for describing non-biblical ancient Jewish literature. It arises from a fresh empirical investigation into the literary structures of many anonymous and pseudepigraphic sources, including Pseudepigrapha and Apocrypha of the Old Testament, the larger Dead Sea Scrolls, Midrash, and the Talmuds
Saint Jerome's Hebrew questions on Genesis by Jerome( Book )

8 editions published between 1995 and 2001 in English and Undetermined and held by 424 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jerome's work provides unique evidence for the dating of much early Jewish material, now of increasing importance as modern critical study of Jewish texts has begun to question hitherto accepted dates. As a Christian who knew Hebrew, Jerome's influence on the Church was very great; but he acquired his knowledge with great effort, and his work reflects the curious relations between this particular Christian and his Jewish informants which is not without interest for current Jewish-Christian relations. Why Jerome wrote the Hebrew Questions is one of the major concerns of the book

The temple in text and tradition : a festschrift in honour of Robert Hayward by R. Timothy McLay( Book )

5 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 111 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Second Temple period is an era that marked a virtual explosion in the world of literature, with the creation, redaction, interpretation, and transmission of Jewish texts that represented diverse languages and ideologies. The creation of many of these writings coincided with the growth of the Jewish community beyond the borders of Israel; therefore, among those for whom the Temple played a diminishing role. The transition period from Temple to texts was accompanied by conflicting interpretations about the role of the Temple as well as diverse theological understandings about God and the Jewish people. Drawing on the expertise of leading specialists in Second Temple Judaism, Temple, Texts, and Traditions explores the rich traditions of the Jewish people as they were expressed and interpreted in their writings in that period, which included writings that later became recognized as Scriptures."--Bloomsbury Publishing

Saint Jerome's Hebrew Questions on Genesis. Oxford Early Christian Studies by Girolamo Squarciafico( )

3 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jerome was one of the very few early Christian scholars to know any Hebrew. This is a unique introduction, translation, and commentary of his Questions on Genesis - a fascinating work showing a Christian working alongside Jews in an age very different from our own. Jerome's influence on the Church is well known - but this work is equally important for the light thrown on the history and origin of many ideas at the heart of the Jewish tradition

The Aramaic Bible( Book )

7 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rabbinic Judaism has transmitted Targums of all the books of the Hebrew Canon, with the exception of Daniel and Ezra-Nehemiah, which are themselves partly in Aramaic. Translations of books of the Hebrew Bible into Aramaic for liturgical purposes must have begun before the Christian era, although none transmitted by Rabbinic Judaism can be shown to be that old. The aim of this series is to translate all the traditionally-known Targums into modern English idiom, while respecting the particular and peculiar nature of what these Aramaic translations were originally intended to be. The translators have made use of what they feel to be the best printed editions of the Aramaic Targum in question or have directly consulted the manuscripts. The translation aims at giving a faithful rendering of the Aramaic. The Targums are not of the same kind. They were translated at different times and have more than one interpretive approach to the Hebrew Bible. Targumic deviations from the Hebrew Text are indicated in italics
