The Old Testament pseudepigrapha by James H Charlesworth( Book )

41 editions published between 1983 and 2015 in English and held by 1,636 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The writers of the Bible lived in a world filled with many writings. Some of these documents are lost forever, but many have been preserved. Part of these extant sources are the Pseudepigrapha. This collection of Jewish and Christian writings shed light on early Judaism and Christianity and their doctrines. This landmark set includes all 65 Pseudepigraphical documents from the intertestamental period that reveal the ongoing development of Judaism and the roots from which the Christian religion took its beliefs. A scholarly authority on each text contributes a translation, introduction, and critical notes for each text. Volume 2 includes expansions of the "Old Testament" legends, wisdom, and philosophical literature; prayers, psalms, and odes; and fragments of lost Judeo-Hellenistic Works

38 editions published between 1992 and 2010 in 5 languages and held by 1,441 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Jesus and the Dead Sea Scrolls gets to the heart of the matter of why these documents are so important. Simply, they give us unprecedented and unparalleled insight into the times in which Jesus lived, and remain among the few surviving original documents written by the hands of Jesus' contemporaries. This detailed investigation provides us with useful insight into, and much needed clarification of, Jesus life and teachings as they begin to emerge from the shadows of history."--Jacket

Jesus within Judaism : new light from exciting archaeological discoveries by James H Charlesworth( Book )

21 editions published between 1988 and 1990 in English and held by 1,079 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As James H. Charlesworth points out in Jesus Within Judaism, we cannot understand Jesus, nor fully appreciate him, without knowing the times in which he lived and the culture in which his thoughts were formed.

Jewish and Christian scriptures : the function of "canonical" and "non-canonical" religious texts( )

7 editions published between 2010 and 2019 in English and held by 1,018 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The good and evil serpent : how a universal symbol became Christianized by James H Charlesworth( Book )

11 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and Italian and held by 821 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The serpent of ancient times was more often associated with positive attributes like healing and eternal life than it was with negative meanings. This groundbreaking book explores in plentiful detail the symbol of the serpent from 40,000 BCE to the present, and from diverse regions in the world. In doing so it emphasizes the creativity of the biblical authors' use of symbols and argues that we must today reexamine our own archetypal conceptions with comparable creativity.--From publisher description

The earliest Christian hymnbook : the Odes of Solomon by James H Charlesworth( )

13 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in English and held by 733 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"That the earliest followers of Jesus wrote poetry, hymns, and odes is evident already in the New Testament. This volume is a translation of The Odes of Solomon, a collection of early Christian hymns or odes; some are obviously Christian, others perhaps Jewish. The beauty of these poems is a tribute to the depth of spirituality in early communities of Christians, some of whom were perhaps also Jews or converted Jews. Professor Charlesworth offers an inviting introduction and a translation of this work that is both engaging and true to the original languages. The Index of Ancient Sources provides the reader access to the wide range of references in the notes. " -- From publisher

The New Testament apocrypha and pseudepigrapha : a guide to publications, with excursuses on Apocalypses by James H Charlesworth( Book )

14 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 486 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jesus and Temple : textual and archaeological explorations( )

8 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 459 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The New Testament provides abundant evidence that Jesus frequented the temple; according to Acts, so did his followers after his death. But the Gospels also depict Jesus in conflict with temple authorities, and questions about his attitude to the temple swirl around what the Gospels label false accusations from his opponents and around the dramatic but inconsistent accounts of Jesus "cleansing" the temple. Jesus' attitude toward the temple is at the center of current historical Jesus research, yet those discussions are often not current with the latest archaeological and related findings regarding the temple and its history, architecture, liturgy, and function. James H. Charlesworth here gathers essays from world-renowned archaeologists and biblical scholars to address the current state of knowledge regarding the temple and to consider anew vital questions about its significance for Jesus, for his followers, and for New Testament readers today
