The Jewish World around the New Testament: Collected Essays I

Mohr Siebeck have published a volume of Richard Bauckham's collected essay with, if I remember rightly, one more volume to follow.

Richard Bauckham, The Jewish World around the New Testament: Collected Essays I (548 pages worth!). Here are some of the articles:

  • The Rise of Apocalyptic
  • The Delay of the Parousia
  • The Son of Man: 'A Man in my Position' or 'Someone'?
  • The Apocalypses in J. H. Charlesworth's Old Testament Pseudepigrapha
  • Pseudo-Apostolic Letters
  • The List of the Tribes of Israel in Revelation 7
  • The "Parting of the Ways": What Happened and Why
  • The Messianic Interpretation of Isaiah 10:34
  • The Relevance of Extra-Canonical Jewish Texts to New Testament Study
  • What if Paul had Travelled East rather than West?
  • Covenant, Law and Salvation in the Jewish Apocalypses
  • The Restoration of Israel in Luke-Acts
  • Paul and Other Jews with Latin Names in the New Testament
  • Tobit as a Parable for the Exiles of Northern Israel
  • The Continuing Quest for the Origins of the Old Testament Pseudepigrapha

Boy oh boy do I want this book, especially as there are quite a few articles that I have not yet read. Some of them are well known, and I will never forget reading 'The Restoration of Israel in Luke-Acts' which helped a lot of mental cogs finally click into place.

Amazon does not have it, is it published recently? I presume it is a fantastic book to have.

Boy oh boy YYYYY? Blaaa. Bunch of old and ancient Bauckham articles hijacked by Mohr Siebeck, the meanest published on the planet who charge a small fortune. I can just select the articles I want and collect them myself if I haven't read them. :-)

Hi Keyvan, yea, published recently

Steph, you have a point, of course.

I am the sort who really prefers book format over loose A4 leaf photocopies from a journal.

me too - but I'm also a cheapskate.
And in this case it's only Bauckham - hardly the best living biblical scholar on the planet! :-)

Steph, if ever I get the chance to write blurb on the back of one of your books, I'll mention that.

"Scholarship of the highest level. But she's a cheapskate"

Thanks - I like honesty:-) Mind you I hope the publisher doesn't take that or me too literally with the binding!
