Judaisms and their messiahs at the turn of the Christian era by Jacob Neusner( Book )

18 editions published between 1987 and 1990 in English and held by 824 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While Jews in ancient Israel had much in common, in fact there existed no such thing as an orthodox Judaism. Diverse Judaisms, each with its own way of life, world view, and definition of the social entity (or Israel) to whom it spoke, flourished. Since there was no single Judaism, there was no single Messiah-idea or Messianic doctrine. Various readings of the Messiah theme reached definition in the various unrelated religious systems or Judaisms produced by those Jews--hence "Judaisms" and "their Messiahs." In this book, distinguished specialists in late antiquity Judaisms, including Christian scholars, take up the differing place and role of the Messiah-idea. Dealing with the best-documented Judaic systems--the Essene community at Qumran, Christian Judaisms represented by Matthew and Mark, the nascent rabbinic Judaism portrayed in the Mishnah, the Judaic system implicit in the writings of Philo--each author works out how a given system treats the Messiah theme. -- PUBLISHER DESCRIPTION
Religion, science, and magic : in concert and in conflict by Jacob Neusner( Book )

15 editions published between 1989 and 2011 in English and held by 790 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Every culture makes the distinction between ""true religion"" and magic, regarding one action and its result as ""miraculous, "" while rejecting another as the work of the devil. Surveying such topics as Babylonian witchcraft, Jesus the magician, magic in Hasidism and Kabbalah, and magic in Anglo-Saxon England, these ten essays provide a rigorous examination of the history of this distinction in Christianity and Judaism. Written by such distinguished scholars as Jacob Neusner, Hans Penner, Howard Kee, Tzvi Abusch, Susan R. Garrett, and Moshe Idel, the essays explore a broad range of topics, inc

Exodus : the Egyptian evidence( Book )

11 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 428 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Few events have shaped Jewish and Christian tradition more than the Exodus from Egypt - and few have been as controversial for historians. The emphasis in the past has been on understanding the Exodus in light of Israelite history and Israelite origins. This book - a collection of six papers given at a conference at Brown University - looks at new evidence of the Exodus: the Egyptian evidence." "The contributors include leading historians, archaeologists, Egyptologists and literary scholars. Join them as they discuss, among many other topics, whether the Exodus was a specific historical event or a wider phenomenon spread over time, whether wall reliefs at Karnak depict a battle between the Egyptians and the Israelites, and whether the Israelites emerged from within ancient Canaanite society."--Jacket
