With friends like these : turning points in the Jewish exegesis of the biblical book of Job by Jason Kalman( Book )

5 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Concerned with the second objective of the present study, chapter 6 provides an outline of the major trends in Jewish Job exegesis. In the Second Temple period Job was described as a pious figure to be emulated. The earliest rabbis maintained this view. By the late third or early fourth centuries, Christian valorization of Job led to Jewish negation of his importance. This led to the depiction of Job as a blasphemer deserving of divine punishment. The view of Job as a less than innocent victim was preserved but modified in various ways in the middle ages (by mystics, philosophers, and peshat exegetes), and was perpetuated through the mid-twentieth century. Only the Holocaust forced a reevaluation of this view. Job was able to have his righteousness restored in an age when interpreters understood, by virtue of their own experiences, that the innocent could truly suffer unjustly."--

The place of the Hebrew Bible in the Mishnah by Jason Kalman( )

4 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The works of Georg Aicher, Samuel Rosenblatt, Peter Acker Pettit, and Jacob Neusner help examine the Bible-Mishnah relationship. The first three discuss the use of Bible citation in the Mishnah. Neusner uses form-analysis to examine its historical development and describes the Mishnah by viewing it as a whole. Our approach, an examination of the Mishnah's details, is more in line with those of Aicher, Rosenblatt, and Pettit. The dependence of the Mishnah on the Bible is demonstrated by examining the distribution and use of Bible citations, comparing the content of the Mishnah to that of the Bible, and analyzing various Mishnaic passages."--
