Resurrecting Jesus : the earliest Christian tradition and its interpreters by Dale C Allison( )

17 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 1,349 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The historical Jesus in context by Amy-Jill Levine( Book )

14 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and held by 921 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Historical Jesus in Context is a landmark collection that places the gospel narratives in their full literary, social, and archaeological context. More than twenty-five internationally recognized experts offer new translations and descriptions of a broad range of texts that shed new light on the Jesus of history, including pagan prayers and private inscriptions, miracle tales and martyrdoms, parables and fables, divorce decrees and imperial propaganda. The translated materials--from Christian, Coptic, and Jewish as well as Greek, Roman, and Egyptian texts--extend beyond single phrases to encompass the full context, thus allowing readers to locate Jesus in a broader cultural setting than is usually made available. This book demonstrates that only by knowing the world in which Jesus lived and taught can we fully understand him, his message, and the spread of the Gospel. Gathering in one place material that was previously available only in disparate sources, this formidable book provides innovative insight into matters no less grand than first-century Jewish and Gentile life, the composition of the Gospels, and Jesus himself
Testament of Abraham by Dale C Allison( )

17 editions published between 2003 and 2013 in English and German and held by 808 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This first verse-by-verse commentary on the Greek text of the Testament of Abraham places the work within the history of both Jewish and Christian literature. It emphasizes the literary artistry and comedic nature of the Testament, brings to the task of interpretation a mass of comparative material, and establishes that, although the Testament goes back to a Jewish tale of the first or second century CE, the Christian elements are much more extensive than has previously been realized. The commentary further highlights the dependence of the Testament upon both Greco-Roman mythology and the Jewish Bible. This should be the standard commentary for years to come
Constructing Jesus : memory, imagination, and history by Dale C Allison( Book )

17 editions published between 2009 and 2013 in English and held by 580 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Presenting the fruit of several decades of research, Allison contends that the standard criteria most scholars have employed and continue to employ for constructing the historical Jusus are of little value. His pioneering alternative applies recent findings from cognitive science about human memory to our reading of the Gospels in order to 'construct Jesus' more soundly"--Jacket

8 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 579 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jesus of Nazareth : millenarian prophet by Dale C Allison( Book )

10 editions published in 1998 in English and French and held by 461 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dale Allison's clearly written Jesus of Nazareth will enable people who have followed recent discussions to vindicate and reclaim the central religious significance of the historical Jesus. Allison makes a creative contribution to Jesus studies in several ways: * He offers new suggestions for establishing the authenticity of Jesus' word -- including what he calls "the index of intertextual linkage"--And for the process of framing a convincing picture of the central thrust and purpose of the activity of Jesus. * Referring to fascinating cross-cultural millenarian parallels, he shows that the impetus for the pre-Easter Jesus movement was apocalyptic in nature and that the historical Jesus can best be understood as an eschatological prophet. * He presents the first full-length treatment of the question of Jesus and asceticism and shows that Jesus, far from the image suggested by some today, was driven by an apocalyptic asceticism that extended to matters of sex, food, and social relations. Always evenhanded and fair, Allison's new work is nonetheless penetrating, acute, and provocative
The historical Christ and the theological Jesus by Dale C Allison( Book )

10 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in English and Italian and held by 434 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book, Dale Allison addresses ongoing historical-theological questions concerning Jesus Christ. What should one think of the modern quest for the historical Jesus when there is such enduring discord among the experts, and when personal agendas play such a large role in the reconstructions? How much history is in the Gospels, and how much history does Christian theology require that there be? How does the quest impinge on conventional Christian beliefs, and what might it contribute to contemporary theological reflection? --From publisher's description
The Jesus tradition in Q by Dale C Allison( Book )

7 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 398 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A thesis regarding Q's composition precedes chapters on specific texts and events
Night comes : death, imagination, and the last things by Dale C Allison( )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 326 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When he was 23 years old, Dale Allison almost died in a car accident. That terrifying experience dramatically changed his ideas about death and the hereafter. In Night Comes Allison wrestles with a number of difficult questions concerning the last things -- such questions as What happens to us after we die? and Why does death so often frighten us? Armed with his acknowledged scholarly expertise, Allison offers an engaging, personal exploration of such themes as death and fear, resurrection and judgment, hell and heaven, in light of science, Scripture, and his own experience. As he ponders and creatively imagines -- engaging throughout with biblical texts, church fathers, rabbinic scholars, poets, and philosophers -- Allison offers fascinating fare that will captivate many a reader's heart and soul
Studies in Matthew : interpretation past and present by Dale C Allison( Book )

10 editions published between 2005 and 2012 in English and held by 320 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dale Allison, one of the preeminent New Testament scholars of our day, gathers here thirteen essays on significant features of Matthew. These essays display the historical, literary, and theological acumen that make Allison a leading figure in gospel studies. Nine of the essays are previously unpublished; the other four are thoroughly revised. Part 1 draws upon the exegetical tradition, from church fathers through medieval interpreters to nineteenth-century commentators, to highlight interpretive possibilities missed by their more recent heirs. Allison does not merely assert but demonstrates in studies of several of the Gospel's more puzzling episodes that "the exegetical past," while requiring critical sifting, nevertheless offers genuine insights that we neglect to our loss. Part 2 brings Allison's own literary sensitivities to bear to illuminate the structure and meaning of the First Gospel as a whole and several of its key narrative elements. Careful attention to Matthew's verbal signals and textual architecture brings his theological themes into sharper focus

A critical and exegetical commentary on the Epistle of James by Dale C Allison( Book )

11 editions published in 2013 in English and Spanish and held by 254 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For over one hundred years International Critical Commentaries have had a special place amongst works on the Bible. They have sought to bring together all the relevant aids to exegesis -- linguistic, textual, archaeological, historical, literary and theological -- to help the reader understand the meaning of the books of the Old and New Testaments. The new commentaries continue this tradition. New evidence now available, as well as new methods of study, will be incorporated in the confidant expectation that there will be an even greater need for such commentaries in the twenty-first century than there has been in the past. The authors, of the highest international standing, make no attempt to secure a uniform theological or critical approach to the biblical text: contributors have been invited for their scholarly distinction, not for their adherence to any one school of thought. Dale C. Allison, Jr., Errett M. Grable Professor of New Testament Exegesis and Early Christianity at Pittsburgh Theological Seminary, adds to this prestigious serious a masterful exegetical and critical commentary on James."--Bloomsbury Publishing

The apocalyptic Jesus : a debate( Book )

4 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 192 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Did the historical Jesus preach that God was about to bring an end to human history and impose the divine kingdom on the earth and all its peoples? Four eminent New Testament scholars - Dale Allison, Marcus Borg, John Dominic Crossan, and Stephen Patterson - come together under the direction of Robert J. Miller to debate this, the single most important question about the historical Jesus." "Borg, Crossan, and Patterson argue that Jesus taught that God's kingdom was already here, not that it was coming in the near future. Dale Allison defends the widely-held view that Jesus was an apocalyptic prophet."--Jacket
