Unusual Bible interpretations : five books of Moses by Israel Drazin( Book )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Most people know little about the Hebrew Bible. They know what they were taught in grade school and perhaps what they hear in sermons. But sermons are designed to teach moral lessons, not disclose the Bible's true meaning. In this book, Dr. Israel Drazin, a noted Bible scholar, reveals insights from the Bible that many readers will consider unusual, ideas from both traditional and non-traditional scholars and the author's own views. He discusses over one hundred different subjects, covering history, philosophy, and practical information people should know, including thought-provoking questio

Unusual Bible interpretations : Joshua by Israel Drazin( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This second volume of the Unusual Bible Interpretations series offers a thought-provoking exploration of the book of Joshua. Noted Bible scholar Dr. Israel Drazin asks the question: What does the book of Joshua actually tell us about the Israelites and their leader Joshua? With common sense close in hand, Dr. Drazin presents clear, logical explanations to issues that have perplexed readers of Joshua for centuries. Paying close attention to the biblical writing style and sensitive to ancient Near East culture, Dr. Drazin not only enhances our understanding of Joshua, but provides a blueprint for approaching the entirety of Scripture. By examining the biblical book of Joshua with references to many classical, traditional, as well as modern scholarly sources, Dr. Israel Drazin interprets the biblical text in ways that many readers will consider unusual. His objective analysis of the book confronts such challenging questions as: How much of the land of Canaan was actually conquered in Joshuas time? When was the book of Joshua composed? What scribal errors does the book contain? If God assured Joshua of victory, why did Joshua use surprise tactics rather than direct frontal assaults? What does the book tell us of the tensions between the tribes of Judah and the tribes of Joseph? Is Shiloh, rather than Jerusalem, the place God chose for the center of Israelite worship? In his well-written, informative, and always insightful work, Israel Drazin is sure to astonish you!
Unusual Bible interpretations : Hosea by Israel Drazin( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The prophet Hosea discusses topics that stand at the core of Jewish thought such as moral conduct, the correct mode of worship, the Jewish people's relationship with God, and repentance. The Talmud even credits Hosea with developing the idea of repentance, a concept that has become the central theme of the High Holidays. Yet the book is filled with obscure words and rich imagery, which make it particularly difficult to understand. Through a detailed analysis of the words of the prophet and his story, Dr. Drazin unpacks the book's messages for the modern reader
