THE NEW TESTAMENT is of prime importance for understanding early Jewish and Christian messianism and eschatology. Yet often the New Testament presumes a background and context of belief without fully articulating it. Early Jewish and Christian messianism and eschatology, after all, did not emerge in a vacuum; they developed out of early Jewish hopes that had their roots in the Old Testament. A knowledge of early Jewish literature, and especially of the Dead Sea Scrolls from Qumran, is essential for understanding the shape of these ideas at the turn of the era......In Eschatology, Messianism, and the Dead Sea Scrolls, Craig A. Evans and Peter W. Flint have assembled eight essays from outstanding scholars who address the issue from a variety of angles. After an introduction by the editors, successive essays deal with the Old Testament foundations of messianism; the figure of Daniel at Qumran; the Teacher of Righteousness; the expectation of the end in the Scrolls; and Jesus, Paul, and John seen in light of Qumran. These essays originated at a conference for a lay audience and retain much of the popular appeal they had when first delivered. The usefulness of the volume as a resource for students, pastors, and interested laypeople is enhanced by a select bibliography and indexes.

W. Drungulin 1925 First Edition Hardcover Used: Acceptable Hardcover

This is an ex-library copy with a spine label, card pocket, due date sheet and multiple library stamps. The spine has been reinforced` with tape. The cover have heavy wear. The pages are moderately toned. Suitable for a reading or binding copy. everal years ago Dr. David Neumark, Professor of Philosophy at the Hebrew Union College, Cincinnati, undertook the editorship and publication of a quarterly magazine entitled. The Journal of Jewish Lore and Philosophy. After four numbers of this scholarly magazine had appeared, Dr. Neumark proposed to the Board of Governors of the Hebrew Union College that it take over the publication as an activity of the College. The Board approved of this suggestion but decided to issue not a quarterly but an annual publication, to be known as The Hebrew Union College Annual. A Board of Editors was appointed consisting of three members of the Faculty of the Hebrew Union College (Dr. Jacob Z. Lauterbach, Dr. Julian Morgenstern and Dr. David Neumark) and three members of the Board of Governors (Dr. Joseph Krauskcpf of Philadelphia,* Dr. William Rosenau of Baltimore and Dr. David Philipson of Cincinnati) with the president of the College, Dr. K. Kohler (now president emeritus), as member ex officio......The Board of Editors in discussing the plan and purpose of the Annual determined to make it a medium through which scholars might be enabled to give to the world studies on subjects in the various branches of Jewish learning. The cooperation of Jewish scholars, not only members of the faculties of rabbinical seminaries but also professors in secular institutions of learning as well as scholars without institutional connection, was invited. The Board of Editors was greatly pleased with the cordial response accorded to their invitation by many of the scholars whom they addressed in the United States and in Europe. The volume herewith issued, containing essays from the pens of experts in their chosen fields of research, offers convincing testimony to the universality of Jewish learning. Here all divisions of opinion and party merge in the friendly fellowship of true scholarly endeavor, and all geographical and national lines are obliterated. The editors hope that this opening volume will be only the first of a long series and that in course of time Jewish scholars wherever living will be represented in the pages of the publication as it appears from year to year. If this hope of the editors is realized, the Annual will have performed a fine service in the cause of the high unity of Jewish learning the world over. Then, although issued by the Hebrew Union College, the Annual will become a mouthpiece of Jewish scholarship everywhere. So may this endeavor meet with increasing favor during coming years, and may the Lord our God establish this work of our hands......For The Board of Editors,DAVID PHILIPSON, Chairman.

Signed 1892 The Early Religion of Israel James Robertson Bible History & Background, ROBERTSON, James
10 ROBERTSON, James Signed 1892 The Early Religion of Israel James Robertson Bible History & Background
William Blackwood and Sons 1892-01-01 2nd Edition Hardcover Used: Good Hardcover Standard Hardcover Signed
This inscribed hardcover book is was published in 1892 by William Blackwood and Sons with 562 pages. Inscibed, " To: Professor Davies, Princeton with pleasant rememberances from the author. 27 Feb 1892." The text contains 70 pages with scattered underlining notes and notations. The cover is moderately worn around the edges. The spine is sunned. No dust jacket. Previous owners name present. The corners are bumped and the tips rubbed through. Review from the 9 July 1892 Spectator:This volume, containing, with some additions, the Baird Lectures delivered three years ago, is a moderate and candid effort to state the conservative view of the subject. Professor Robertson does not, indeed, stand where the theologians of a century or even half-a-century since stood ; but he distinctly rejects the theories of the school in which M. Renan occupies, so to speak, the extreme left. He believes that a divine commission was entrusted to the Hebrew people ; that it was a witness, from the beginning of its history, for the "ethical monotheism" into which, according to the view of modern criticism, it slowly grew, and whieh, in that view, it did not reach till long after the Exodus, the conquest of Canaan, and the period, to say the least, of the early Kings. To this view it is possible to hold fast without necessarily accepting all the letter of the records in which this history is contained. The question, of course, is not one that can be here discussed, but we may heartily commend this volume as a very able statement of the traditional view. (Source:the Spectator online archives)
