The rise of ancient Israel( Book )

1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This work is composed of three outstanding lectures about the emergence of the ancient Israelites and their religion presented at a symposium held at the Smithsonian Institution in the fall of 1991. Professors William Dever, Baruch Halpern, and P. Kyle McCarter Jr., specialists in the fields of biblical archaeology and Near Eastern studies, present provocative theories on the arrival of the Israelites in ancient Canaan and the provenance of their religion. Did the Israelites enter Canaan according to the books of Joshua and Judges or were they already there as part of the indigenous population? Is there any reality to the biblical account of the Exodus? Where and when did belief in the God Yahweh originate? Edited under the aegis of Shanks, the well-known editor of Biblical Archaeological Review and Bible Review , this work can easily be understood by interested lay readers. Highly recommended for larger collections. Robert A. Silver, Shaker Heights P.L., Ohio. Library Journal

4QMMT and Paul : new light on old questions( Visual )

3 editions published between 1999 and 2009 in English and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Scholars have typically interpreted a Dead Sea Scroll document called 4QMMT as contrary to the teachings of Paul. It seems to advocate justification by acts, where as Paul teaches justification by faith alone. Wright demonstrates that while the arguments in 4QMMT seem to contradict Paul, that is not necessarily the case."--Conteneur
