Genre: Religion

This second of two volumes on Galilee in the Late Second Temple and Mishnaic Periods focuses on the site excavations of towns and villages and what these excavations may tell us about the history of settlement in this important period. The important site at Sepphoris is treated with four short articles, while the rest of the articles focus on a single site and include site plans, diagrams, maps, photographs of artifacts and structures, and extensive bibliographic listings. The articles in the volume have been written by an international group of experts on Galilee in this period: Christians, Jews, and secular scholars, many of whom are also regular participants in the twenty site excavations featured in the volume. The volume also features detailed maps of Galilee, a gallery of color images, timelines related to the period, and helpful indices. Together with Volume 1: Life, Culture, and Society, this volume provides the latest word of these topics for the expert and nonexpert alike.

Genre: Religion

This first of two volumes on ancient Galilee provides general surveys of modern studies of Galilee and of Galilean history followed by specialized studies on taxation, ethnicity, religious practices, road system, trade and markets, education, health, village life, houses, and the urban-rural divide. The volume draws on the expertise of archaeologists, historians, biblical scholars, and social-science interpreters; Christians, Jews, and secular scholars; North Americans, Europeans, and Israelis; and those who have devoted a significant amount of time and energy in this research, especially those who have excavated in Galilee for many years. A key goal of this volume and its companion volume devoted to the archaeological record of towns and villages is to make this information easily accessible to New Testament scholars and Mishnah scholars not familiar with these materials while also usable to the average interested reader. This book includes several images, figures, charts, and maps.

Being Christian in the Twenty First Century

Author: Sam Gould
Publisher: Wipf and Stock Publishers
ISBN: 9781532619694
Release Date: 2017-07-11
Genre: Religion

Being Christian in the Twenty-first Century was written to help struggling and doubting Christians develop an understanding of Christianity that avoids literalism, creeds, and doctrines—all factors which seem to be driving people away from the church. The book is well suited for individual or group study, complete with a study guide and sample lesson plans. It responds to the call for theological reform advocated by many contemporary clergy and religious leaders. Being Christian does not restate orthodox positions or drift into fundamentalism or sentimentalism. Instead it draws from a broad base of historical, theological, archaeological, and sociological scholarship to place Scripture within its original context, yet present it within a perspective suitable for the twenty-first-century mind. Being Christian is scholarly, yet readable, interesting, and often provocative. One reviewer put it this way, “the book reminds me of a baseball pitcher with a long wind up and a hard fastball getting better in every inning.” By building upon progressive thought available today and throughout history, it offers an important resource for Christians and would-be Christians seeking a more fulfilling and thoughtful faith journey.

Die Textfunde vom Toten Meer bieten einen faszinierenden Einblick in die Entwicklung des antiken Judentums. Sie verdeutlichen sowohl die Diversitat der hebraischen Sprache, wie auch die der judischen Religionsgeschichte. Nach Veroffentlichung aller Textfunde vom Toten Meer stellt sich nun die Aufgabe die Phylakterienfunde vom Toten Meer im Licht aktueller Forschungsansatze neu zu analysieren. Dieser Aufgabe nimmt sich dieser Band an, indem er ausgehend von den Phylakterienfunden aus Qumran der Heidelberger Papyrussammlung eine Revision und Zusammenschau aller bisher veroffentlichten Phylakterien vom Toten Meer vorlegt. Im Fokus steht die Entwicklung der hebraischen Sprache im Kontext des Hebraischen seiner Zeit, das Verhaltnis der textlichen Form der Phylakterien zum spateren 'Textus receptus' der hebraischen Bibel, sowie die Herstellungsweise der Phylakterien in ihrer Relation zur normativen rabbinischen Halakhah.

Chr. - Vom Nutzen und Nachteil der Konigswurde fur einen judischen Herrscher; Julia Wilker: Herodes Iudaicus - Herodes als "judischer Konig;" Monika Bernett: Herodes und die Stadt in Judaa; Achim Lichtenberger: Juden, Idumaer und "Heiden."
