Image and reality : the Jews in the world of the Christians in the second century by Judith Lieu( )

17 editions published between 1996 and 2003 in English and held by 876 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A major feature of recent scholarship has been a new interest in the changing relationship between Judaism and Christianity during the first centuries CE. Two factors have been of great importance in this development. Firstly, new methods such as the social scientific study of new texts, redaction criticism, and a fresh approach to both Palestinian and diaspora Judaism. Secondly, a much needed and painful awareness of the terrible legacy of the Christian 'teaching of contempt' towards its Jewish heritage and partners. Judith Lieu builds upon such analysis but seeks to approach the question from a different perspective: what is the rhetorical function of Jews and Judaism in the early texts, after those of the New Testament but before the increasingly stereotypical polemic and diatribe of third and fourth century authors? How does this rhetorical function relate to the historical, theological and social frameworks within which these texts arose and were read? How, in turn, did it help constitute the framework for later texts? The texts examined come from the second century and all have some link with Asia Minor, an area where we have a range of evidence for Judaism, which can be used as a point of contrast with the literary image. They also represent a spread of literary genres reflecting new developments in the period. This study is an attempt to acknowledge the complex nature of an issue which is too easily proclaimed 'Christian anti-Semitism'. Only by understanding this tangled web of the past can we hope to build a better future
Christian identity in the Jewish and Graeco-Roman world by Judith Lieu( Book )

25 editions published between 2004 and 2011 in English and held by 742 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

I, II & III John : a commentary by Judith Lieu( )

11 editions published between 2008 and 2012 in English and held by 706 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The New Testament's three letters attributed to John have always provided remarkable theological riches for the Christian tradition, including the assertion "God is love." Scholars have struggled to discern if these documents are from the same person who wrote the Gospel of John and have worked to see each of these writings within its own situation and context. Each letter shows how an early Christian author responded to threats against authority by recourse to the correct teachings of the faith and a proper understanding of the relationship between Jesus and God. Together, these letters argue for a bond of unity among believers, based on fidelity to the truth of God."--BOOK JACKET

The theology of the Johannine Epistles by Judith Lieu( Book )

24 editions published between 1991 and 1999 in 3 languages and held by 642 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Johannine Epistles have long been recognised as contributing a vital element to the theology of the New Testament. Usually it is to the Gospel that the reader turns first in order to explore that contribution; the First Epistle is treated as a supplement, while 2 and 3 John - on account of their brevity - receive little attention. This book allows the Epistles to speak for themselves, and shows that they sound a distinctive note within Johannine theology, in particular, and the thought of the New Testament, in general. Dr Lieu carefully outlines their most important theological themes (comprising, for example, tensions-in-unity between confidence and imperative, individual and community, and faith and tradition) which - when understood in their original setting - are seen to have rich potential for the continuing theology of the Church. By focusing on the Johannine Epistles in their proper context and in their own right, the author of this book thus provides a timely reassessment of the substantial theological contribution they have to make
Neither Jew nor Greek? : constructing early Christianity by Judith Lieu( Book )

25 editions published between 2002 and 2016 in English and held by 507 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this study, Judith Lieu explores the formation and shaping of early Christian identity within Judaism and within the wider Graeco-Roman world in the period before 200 C.E. Bringing to bear the latest analytical methods on her subject, she pays close attention to the way that literary texts presented early Christianity, combining this with interdisciplinary historical investigation and interaction with the most recent work on Judaism in late antiquity and the Graeco-Roman world." "The book addresses key questions in current New Testament scholarship, including the formation of early Christian identity, how best to describe and understand the processes by which the Christian movement became separate from its Jewish origins, the role of women in Judaism and early Christianity, and the part which martyrdom played in the construction of Christian identity."--Jacket

Marcion and the making of a heretic : God and scripture in the second century by Judith Lieu( Book )

20 editions published between 2014 and 2017 in English and held by 304 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A comprehensive and authoritative account of the 'heretic' Marcion, this volume traces the development of the concept and language of heresy in the setting of an exploration of second-century Christian intellectual debate. Judith M. Lieu analyses accounts of Marcion by the major early Christian polemicists who shaped the idea of heresy, including Justin Martyr, Irenaeus, Tertullian, Epiphanius of Salamis, Clement of Alexandria, Origen, and Ephraem Syrus. She examines Marcion's 'Gospel', 'Apostolikon', and 'Antitheses' in detail and compares his principles with those of contemporary Christian and non-Christian thinkers, covering a wide range of controversial issues: the nature of God, the relation of the divine to creation, the person of Jesus, the interpretation of Scripture, the nature of salvation, and the appropriate lifestyle of adherents. In this innovative study, Marcion emerges as a distinctive, creative figure who addressed widespread concerns within second-century Christian diversity

Behemot und Leviathan : Studien zur Komposition und Theologie von Hiob 38,1-42,6 by Chol-Gu Kang( )

3 editions published in 2016 in German and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die Gottesreden (Hi 38,1 - 42,6) bilden den Höhepunkt der Hiobdichtung und werden als Schlüssel zu ihrem Gesamtverständnis angesehen. Die vorliegende Arbeit versucht, die Gottesreden durch das Welt-, Gottes- und Menschenverständnis des Hiobbuches verständlich zu machen. Als Lösung des Hiobproblems stehen die mythischen Repräsentanten Behemot und Leviathan. Die Existenz beider Tiere, hinter denen sich zoologisch Nilpferd und Krokodil verbergen und zu denen sich in den Gottesreden des Hiobbuches noch weitere 10 Tiere dazugesellen (Hi 38,39 - 39,30), stellt Hiob vor die entscheidende Frage und zwingt ihn dazu, sich und sein Leiden an Gott und Welt neu zu sehen
