The Jewish annotated New Testament : New Revised Standard Version Bible translation by Amy-Jill Levine( )

27 editions published between 2011 and 2017 in English and held by 2,174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The intention for publishing The Jewish Annotated New Testament, according to its editors, Amy-Jill Levine and Mark Zvi Brettler is to recognize the growing understanding between Jewish and Christian traditions, and to help further that understanding. The editors of this volume, both distinguished New Testament scholars, had two key reasons for creating this "Jewish Annotated New Testament." First they wanted Christian readers to learn more about the Judaic origins of Christianity and the context surrounding the life of Jesus. Second, they wanted to introduce Jewish readers to what is unquestionably one of the canonical texts in Western Civilization, whether they believe in it or not. Many of the glosses found in the text are geared at linking the ideas and events of the gospels to their background in the history of Judaism. Each of the books of The New Testament is accompanied by a brief introductory essay. There are also a number of shorter sidebar essays positioned within each book to help to explain specific passages at greater length. Finally the end of the book contains a number of essays by leading experts on the Bible and Jewish history on a broad range of relevant topics
The creation of history in Ancient Israel by Marc Zvi Brettler( )

36 editions published between 1995 and 2006 in 3 languages and held by 1,891 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Much of the Old Testament looks like history. Yet, a close reading of the biblical text in conjunction with other ancient literature and archaeological evidence indicates that its accounts of 'events' are often inaccurate or untrue. What then were the goals of the ancient biblical historians? How are we to read these texts if not as history?
God is king : understanding an Israelite metaphor by Marc Zvi Brettler( )

14 editions published between 1989 and 1991 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,299 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first attempt in biblical studies to apply the tools developed by theoreticians of metaphor to the common biblical metaphor of God as king. The extent to which elements of human kingship are projected onto God is investigated, and several significant conclusions emerge: 1. Royal characteristics that have a diminutive connotation are generally not projected onto God. 2. God's nature as greatest king is emphasized through use of superlatives. For example, his garb is enormous and he has a large number of royal attendants. God is not limited by the metaphor. 3. When the entailments of

The Bible and the believer : how to read the Bible critically and religiously by Marc Zvi Brettler( Book )

14 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in English and held by 803 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Can the Bible be approached both as sacred scripture and as a historical and literary text? For many people, it must be one or the other. How can we read the Bible both ways? This work brings together three biblical scholars, one Jewish, one Catholic, and one Protestant, to illustrate how to read the Hebrew Bible/ Old Testament critically and religiously. Here the authors tackle a dilemma that not only haunts biblical scholarship today, but also disturbs students and others exposed to biblical criticism for the first time, either in university courses or through their own reading. Failure to resolve these conflicting interpretive strategies often results in rejection of either the critical approach or the religious approach, or both. But the authors demonstrate how biblical criticism, the process of establishing the original contextual meaning of biblical texts with the tools of literary and historical analysis, need not undermine religious interpretations of the Bible, but can in fact enhance them. They show how awareness of new archeological evidence, cultural context, literary form, and other tools of historical criticism can provide the necessary preparation for a sound religious reading. And they argue that the challenges such study raises for religious belief should be brought into conversation with religious tradition rather than deemed grounds for dismissing either that tradition or biblical criticism. Guiding readers through the history of biblical exegesis within the Jewish, Catholic, and Protestant faith traditions, this book bridges an age-old gap between critical and religious approaches to the Old Testament
The Book of Judges by Marc Zvi Brettler( Book )

16 editions published between 2001 and 2005 in English and held by 473 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Book of Judges has typically been treated either as a historical account of the conquest of Israel and the rise of the monarch, or as an ancient Israelite work of literary fiction. In this new approach, Brettler contends that Judges is essentially a political tract, which argues for the legitimacy of Davidic kingship. He skillfully and accessibly shows the tension between the stories in their original forms, and how they were altered and reused to create a book with a very different meaning. This is important new work for those who are interested in the Old Testament."--Jacket

Roots of violence : creating peace through spiritual reconciliation by Krister Stendahl( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In an arrogant age that asks, "Why are Muslims so violent", this book asks from an unlikely perspective why Christians also are. This work is important because it takes an age-old question, religious violence, and makes it new again. In times like the ones of 2016, this intellectual material is vital. Krister wrote a series of talks in the 1980's on the edges of religious violence and how they often come from concepts of salvation. He believed that the Biblical understanding of salvation as victory was problematic, and proposed instead salvation as nirvana and salvation as shalom. He also proposed that we undergo searches through Scripture for images of peace, of reconciliation, of light. This thought is relevant to conflicts today. Stendahl, as the dean of Harvard and the Lutheran Bishop of Stockholm, has his own authority as one of the wisest theologians of history. This book has its own advantage too, because it is funny, pithy, and a quick read.
