Reading Jude with new eyes : methodological reassessments of the letter of Jude by Robert L Webb( )

13 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 1,462 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The letters of James, 1 and 2 Peter, and Jude are among the most neglected letters of the New Testament. Thus, methodological advances in New Testament study tend to arise among the Gospels or Pauline letters. But these letters are beginning to receive increased attention in the scholarly community.€. Reading Jude With New Eyes is the fourth of four volumes that incorporate research in this area. The essays collected here examine the impact of recent methodological developments in New Testament studies to Jude, including, for example, rhetorical, social-scientific, socio-rhetorical, ideol
Reading James with new eyes : methodological reassessments of the letter of James by John S Kloppenborg( )

13 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 1,350 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The essays collected here examine the impact of recent methodological developments in New Testament studies of the letter of James, including, for example, rhetorical, social-scientific, socio-rhetorical, ideological and hermeneutical methods, as they contribute to understanding James and its social context. Each essay has a similar threefold structure, perfect for use by students: a description of the methodological approach; the application of the methodological approach to James; and a conclusion identifying how the methodological approach contributes to a fresh understanding of the letter."--BOOK JACKET
John the baptizer and prophet : a socio-historical study by Robert L Webb( )

15 editions published between 1991 and 2006 in English and held by 1,272 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Using recent methodological advances in historical Jesus research, this book examines the figure of John by focusing on the two characteristic roles which he publicly performed-baptizer and prophet. The significance of these roles is studied within the context of late Second Temple Judaism in order to understand John within his social and historical context. Part I examines the traditions concerning John in Josephus's Antiquities as well as in canonical and extra canonical Gospels. Part II studies John's role as baptizer by analysing the functions of ablutions in the Old Testament and Second Temple Jewish literature, especially the Qumran literature. Part III analyses John's public role of prophet. John is seen as the leader of a prophetic movement, whose sociopolitical orientation may be compared with similar movements of the period

Jesus and Mel Gibson's The passion of the Christ : the film, the gospels and the claims of history( Book )

6 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 673 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Mel Gibson's The passion of the Christ is not only a powerful and evocative film, it is also an important cultural phenomenon. Claims and accusations about this film have been made in newspapers on television, and from pulpits. In particular, claims have been made that the film is accurate to the stories in the Gospels and to history"--Back cover

Key events in the life of the historical Jesus : a collaborative exploration of context and coherence by Fedor von Bock( Book )

10 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and German and held by 407 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Using a carefully defined approach to historical Jesus studies and historical method, this collection of essays examines twelve key events in the life of Jesus that were part of a decade-long collaborative research project. Each essay examines the case for the event's authenticity and then explores the social and cultural background to the event to provide an understanding of the event's historical significance. The first six events are related to the public ministry context of Jesus, mostly associated with his Galilean ministry, while latter six events involve his final days in Jerusalem. The final essay closes with suggestions about how these events cohere and what they can tell us about what Jesus did
