  • Excavating The Evidence For Jesus

    $24.99

    Examine the Evidence Surrounding Jesus

    No other figure has impacted history like Jesus. Yet today, he’s often seen as a mythical character whose legend increased over time. So what does the historical and archaeological evidence say about Jesus?

    Archaeologist Dr. Titus Kennedy has investigated firsthand the discoveries connected to Jesus’ birth, ministry, crucifixion, and resurrection. He has visited and excavated where Jesus walked, and examined the artifacts connected to Jesus’ life. Here, he presents an up-to-date and comprehensive overview of the research and findings that illuminate the historicity of Christ as presented in the Bible.

    Excavating the Evidence for Jesus progresses chronologically through the Gospels, noting the many relevant archaeological, historical, geographic, and literary findings. As you read, you’ll be able to decide for yourself whether the evidence confirms the existence and story of Jesus, and determine whether the Gospels are worthy of being approached not as legends, but as history. Further, you’ll gain a deeper understanding of the historic basis of Christianity, a richer knowledge of the ancient world, and an evidence-based perspective on the reliability of the Bible.

  • Archaeology Of Qumran And The Dead Sea Scrolls

    $29.99

    A Choice Outstanding Academic Title and winner of the Biblical Archaeology Society’s Publication Award for Best Popular Book on Archaeology

    The Dead Sea Scrolls have been described as the most important archaeological discovery of the twentieth century. Deposited in caves surrounding Qumran by members of a Jewish sect who lived at the site in the first century BCE and first century CE, they provide invaluable information about Judaism in the last centuries BCE.

    Like the Dead Sea Scrolls, the Qumran site continues to be the object of intense scholarly debate. In a book meant to introduce general readers to this fascinating area of study, veteran archaeologist Jodi Magness provides an overview of the archaeology of Qumran that incorporates information from the Dead Sea Scrolls and other contemporary sources.

    Magness identifies Qumran as a sectarian settlement, rejecting other interpretations including claims that Qumran was a villa rustica or manor house. By carefully analyzing the published information on Qumran, she refines the site’s chronology, reinterprets the purpose of some of its rooms, and reexamines archaeological evidence for the presence of women and children in the settlement. Numerous photos and diagrams give readers a firsthand look at the site.

    Considered a standard text in the field for nearly two decades, The Archaeology of Qumran and the Dead Sea Scrolls is revised and updated throughout in its second edition in light of the publication of all the Dead Sea Scrolls and additional data from Roland de Vaux’s excavations, as well as Yitzhak Magen and Yuval Peleg’s more recent excavations. Specialists and nonspecialists alike will find here an overview of the Qumran site and the Dead Sea Scrolls that is both authoritative and accessible.

  • Red Haired Archaeologist Digs Israel

    $15.99

    Travel Israel-past and present-to learn about its people and its God with Harvard-trained biblical archaeologist, whimsical storyteller, and sunscreen advocate Amanda Hope Haley.

    Despite what’s seen in the Indiana Jones movies, archaeology isn’t a fast-paced quest to recover legendary objects lost to time. Scholar and writer Amanda Hope Haley’s digs in Israel have been dusty, rigorous, and objective hunts for clues that reveal the world as it existed when the Bible was written.

    In The Red-Haired Archaeologist Digs Israel, Amanda travels the lands of the Bible-a trowel in one hand and a camera in the other. Discover with her how Christians can…
    *use archaeological finds to better understand Israel’s history
    *shed a Western mindset and read the Bible in its original context
    *comprehend today’s religious conflicts in the Holy Land

    For anyone curious about Israel of the past and the present, The Red-Haired Archaeologist Digs Israel investigates the historical and modern contexts we need to understand both the Bible and God’s people, and features photos from Amanda’s archaeological digs. This two-week trip through the country, which begins as a search for the meanings of ancient Scripture, just might end with a clearer perception of our current neighbors and how Jesus would have us love them today.

  • Unearthing The Bible

    $22.99

    Who first recorded the creation of the world? What tools did people use in Bible times? When did the Israelites arrive and settle in Canaan? Where exactly did Paul travel throughout his ministry?

    The Bible is the most popular book in the world, yet there are many questions people ask as they seek evidence of its veracity. For truth seekers in search of physical evidence relating to the history of the world and the origin of faith, archaeology provides a rich treasure trove pointing toward the answers they seek.

    In Unearthing the Bible, Dr. Titus M. Kennedy presents 101 objects from more than 50 museums, private collections, and archaeological sites, to offer strong and compelling evidence for the historical accuracy of Scripture.

    Follow along the chronology of the Bible from Genesis to Revelation, with artifacts from the Mesopotamian tablets that record creation to graffiti found in the House of Peter. Examine inscriptions, coins, scarabs, tablets, papyri, stelae, reliefs, statues, altars, jewelry, weapons, tools, and pottery through vivid color photography. And learn how these artifacts not only demonstrate the historical reliability of the Bible but illuminate the ancient context for a more accurate understanding of God’s Word.

  • From The Maccabees To The Mishnah

    $40.00

  • Tomb Of Jesus And His Family

    $49.50

    About twenty-five years ago archaeologists discovered a tomb near Jerusalem that contained a family’s ossuaries — limestone bone boxes commonly used in ancient Near Eastern burial customs — inscribed with some familiar New Testament names: Mary, Joseph, James, Mary Magdalene, and Jesus. The Discovery Channel produced a film investigating “The Lost Tomb of Jesus,” raising interest among the public and specialists alike. Could this actually be the tomb of Jesus and his family? In January 2008 an international congress of scholars met in Jersualem to discuss this question. This volume presents their findings. Covering the archaeological facts about this discovery, Jewish burial customs during the late Second Temple period, first-century inscriptions, the Talpiot tomb, the James ossuary, the Holy Sepulcher, Hazon Gabriel, and beliefs about burial and the afterlife within Second Temple Judaism, these essays offer expert perspectives on a much-publicized topic.

  • Dead Sea Scrolls

    $46.99

    Contains new information about unpublished Dead Sea Scrolls with translations of key passages and recent discovery of the movement behind the Scrolls in their own words. See http://deadseascrolls.org/www/Site/thedss.php In 1947, a Bedouin shepherd stumbled upon a cave near the Dead Sea, a settlement now called Qumran, to the east of Jerusalem. This cave, along with the others located nearby, contained jars holding hundreds of scrolls and fragments of scrolls of texts both biblical and nonbiblical-in Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek. The biblical scrolls would be the earliest evidence of the Hebrew Scriptures by hundreds of years; and the nonbiblical texts would shed dramatic light on one of the least-known periods of Jewish history. This find is the most important archaeological event in two thousand years of biblical studies. Online supplement, with indexes, discussion questions, Dead Sea Scrolls websites, and links to study tools, electronic resources, and photographs: http://www.abingdonacademic.com/dsscrolls

  • How Israel Became A People

    $40.99

    How did Israel become a people? Is the biblical story accurate? In what sense, if any, is the biblical story true? Are the origins of these ancient people lost in myth or is there hope to discovering who they were and how they lived? These questions divide students and scholars alike. While many believe the “Conquest” is only a fable, this book will present a different view. Using biblical materials and the new archaeological data, this title tells how the ancient Israelites settled in Canaan and became the people of Israel. The stakes for understanding the history of ancient Israel are high. The Old Testament tells us that Yahweh led the Hebrews into the land of Canaan and commanded them to drive its indigenous inhabitants out and settle in their place. This account has often served as justification for the possession of the land by the modern state of Israel. Archaeology is a “weapon” in the debate, used by both Israelis and Palestinians trying to write each other out of the historical narrative. This book provides needed background for the issues and will be of interest to those concerned with the complexity of Arab-Israeli relations.

  • Law Power And Justice In Ancient Israel

    $50.00

    From leading Old Testament scholar Douglas A. Knight comes the latest volume in WJK’s Library of Ancient Israel series. Using socio-anthropological theory and archaeological evidence, Knight argues that while the laws in the Hebrew Bible tend to reflect the interests of those in power, the majority of ancient Israelites-located in villages-developed their own unwritten customary laws to regulate behavior and resolve legal conflicts in their own communities. This book includes numerous examples from village, city, and cult.

    Volumes in the Library of Ancient Israel draw on multiple disciplines-such as archaeology, anthropology, sociology, linguistics, and literary criticism-to illuminate the everyday realities and social subtleties these ancient cultures experienced. This series employs sophisticated methods that depict the reality of the people behind the Hebrew Bible and interprets these insights for a wide variety of readers.

  • Biblical Bethsaida : A Study Of The First Century CE In The Galilee

    $84.00

    This book examines the archaeological site of Bethsaida located near the north shore of the Sea of Galilee, exploring its first century occupation in light of the current debates about the reconstruction of the social milieu of the larger Galilee region of that period. In the study of the cultural and social matrix of the first century CE in the Galilee scholars have commonly prioritized written sources over archaeological evidence because written sources seem to contribute more directly to an understanding of the religious beliefs and practices of a community. However, there exist many competing views of the ‘landscape’ of the first century CE in the Galilee due to the varying lenses employed to view the textual sources. These differing perspectives distribute along a continuum, reflecting the varied ethnicity, economics and political climate that is posited by the interpreter. This work enters that process of constructing a portrait of the First Century CE in the Galilee by drawing primarily upon the archaeological data from Et-Tell (Bethsaida) itself and suggesting its relevance for the reconstruction of the first century CE cultural context. It views the material practices of the ancient inhabitants of the site as significant indicators of their sense of ‘place’ both ideologically and geographically.The image that emerges from first-century CE Et-Tell (Bethsaida) is one clearly at home in the gallery of Jewish communities in the Galilee.

    $13.49

    Mount Sinai, where Moses received the ten commandments has been lost for about 2,500 years. Isaiah 2:2,3 tells us that in the last days Mount Sinai will be found. Many mountains have been proposed as the “real” Mount Sinai. However, do any meet the biblical clues? What route would the Israelites have taken? How would they obtain water for 600,000 in the desert? What time of year did they leave? What was the weather at that time? Where are the other proposed mountains? Where did Moses’ father-in-law, Jethro live? Would Jethro speak Egyptian and would Moses be able to speak another language to have communicated with Jethro’s daughter? These are some of the questions answered in this book.

  • Rediscovering The Dead Sea Scrolls

    $29.50

    Both within and outside the field of Qumran scholarship, the study of the Dead Sea Scrolls is sometimes treated as a rather specialized closed shop. By encouraging interdisciplinary and self-consciously methodological discussions, this volume intends to open that shop and invite new conversations across lines of interest, discipline, and scholarly subfield.

    Fifteen respected DSS scholars representing diverse perspectives offer here a window into the scholarly study of these ancient texts. Rediscovering the Dead Sea Scrolls introduces readers to a wide range of established and experimental treatments of the Scrolls, including paleography, archaeology, manuscript analysis, and a variety of literary, historical, and social scientific approaches. The authors provide not only an introduction to a given approach but also a more self-reflective assessment of the limits of their approaches and the potential pitfalls associated with them.

    In place of a single authoritative strategy, here are a variety of strategies – some overlapping and others standing alone – all the products of a process that is unusually collaborative. Taken as a whole, they provide a vibrant intersectional picture of DSS studies on the cusp of its seventh decade.

  • Temple In The Gospel Of Mark

    $47.00

    This work analyzes one of the most striking elements of Mark’s story: the vital role the temple plays from Jesus’s entry into Jerusalem to the moment of his death. Timothy Gray’s narrative approach detects implications that redaction criticism missed. Using echoes of Old Testament prophets to present Jesus’s “way” as the eschatological return of the Lord to his temple, Mark sees Jesus’s cleansing of the temple as a pointer to its imminent destruction. It has failed in its appointed mission to serve as the focus for the restoration of Israel and the ingathering of the Gentiles, and that function will now be assumed by its replacement: the community gathered around Jesus. Originally published by Mohr Siebeck, The Temple in the Gospel of Mark is now available as an affordable North American paperback edition. It offers New Testament scholars and graduate students fresh basic scholarship on a major motif in the life and teaching of Jesus.

    Shamans of the Lost World bridges the gap between recent work in the cognitive sciences and some of humankind’s oldest religious expressions. In this detailed look at the prehistoric shamanism of the Ohio Hopewell, Romain uses cognitive science, archaeology, and ethnology to propose that the shamanic worldview results from psychological mechanisms that have a basis in our cognitive evolutionary development. The discussions in this volume of the most current theories concerning how early peoples came to believe in spirits and gods, as well as how those theories help account for what we find in the archaeological record of the Hopewell, are of interest to archaeologists and cognitive scientists alike.

  • Dinosaurs On The Ark

    $23.95

    T-Rex on Noah’s Ark? Right! How did Noah feed him without being fed to him? Not only does this book address the issues of Creation and evolution from scientific and biblical perspectives, it also chronicles the author’s personal journey to discover and document the remains of Noah’s Ark (1997, ’98, ’99, 2000, ’01, ’03, ’05) and discusses the overwhelming significance of potential discovery. For anyone educated in American schools (especially secular colleges and universities), the topics, such as those addressed below, will be both challenging and eye-opening.

    Discover compelling answers to these questions:

    What if the story of dinosaurs existing millions of years ago is a myth designed to bolster belief in an evolutionary process, but completely devoid of actual evidence?
    What if dinosaurs were brought onto Noah’s Ark along with all other air-breathing land animals and survived a global flood?
    What if the various (and varying) accounts of “Ice Ages” on earth are fictitious and have spiritual roots linked to the belief in evolution?
    What if the remains of Noah’s Ark were found in the upper reaches of Mt. Ararat in eastern Turkey?

    Many of our religious beliefs are based on faith alone, but archaeology gives the opportunity to find evidence about what really happened in the distant past-evidence that can have a dramatic impact on what and how we believe. Join celebrated archaeologist and rabbi Richard Fruend as he takes readers through digs he has led in the Holy Land, searching for evidence about key biblical characters and events.

    Digging Through the Bible presents overviews of the evidence surrounding figures such as Moses, Kings David and Solomon, and Mary the mother of Jesus, as well as new information that can help us more fully understand the life and times in which these people would have lived. Freund also presents new evidence about finding the grave of the Teacher of Righteousness mentioned in the Dead Sea Scrolls, and gives a compelling argument about how the Exodus of the Israelites may have taken place in three separate waves over time, rather than in a single event as presented in the Bible.

    In addition to discussing some of the greatest Biblical controversies of our day, Freund provides a compelling discussion of how to understand these debates and how much information is necessary to form new conclusions about the past. An engaging introduction to the practice of Biblical archaeology, Digging Through the Bible shares information about the Holy Land that can provide a powerful connection between past history and present faith.

    Many of the world’s first written records have been found in the area of the Ancient Near East, in what is today known as the Middle East. While many people are familiar with the ancient Israelite literature recorded in the Hebrew Bible, most Near Eastern literature remains a mystery. From an Antique Land lifts the veil from these fascinating writings, explaining the ancient stories in the context of their cultures.

    From the invention of writing through the conquest of Alexander the Great, expert scholars examine literature originally written in Egyptian, Sumerian, Akkadian, Hittite, Ugaritic, Canaanite, Hebrew, and Aramaic. Each chapter includes an overview of the culture, a discussion of literary genres, and descriptions and short analyses of the major literary works. Photos of archaeological remains further illustrate these people and their writings.

  • Architecture Of Herod The Great Builder

    $72.00

    Herod the Great, one of the most famous builders of the biblical world, is a name well known to New Testament readers. Recently a team led by Ehud Netzer, a leading Israeli archaeologist of the Herodian period, discovered the tomb of Herod in one of his palaces 2,000 years after his death. This volume highlights Herod’s personal involvement with and contributions to his building projects, which benefited from his analytical mind, creative imagination, and deep understanding of the building and planning process. In many ways, the book presents the first comprehensive synthesis of Herod’s enterprises from architectural and archaeological viewpoints. Originally published in hardcover by Mohr Siebeck, it is now available in paper.

  • Memories Of Ancient Israel

    $28.00

    Recent years have seen an explosion of writing on the history of Israel, prompted largely by definitive archaeological surveys and attempts to write a genuine archaeological history of ancient Israel and Judah. The scholarly world has also witnessed an intense confrontation between so-called minimalists and maximalists over the correct approach to the historicity of the Bible. Memories of Ancient Israel looks at the issues at stake in doing biblical historythe ideologies involved, the changing role of archaeology, and the influence of cultural contexts, both ancient and modern. Davies suggests a different way of defining the problem of reliability and historicity by employing the theory of cultural memory. In doing so, he provides a better explanation of how ancient societies constructed their past but also a penetrating insight into the ideological underpinnings of today’s scholarly debates.

  • Old Testament Between Theology And History

    $55.00

    From its inception at the time of the Enlightenment until the mid-twentieth century, the historical-critical method constituted the dominant paradigm in Old Testament studies. In this magisterial overview, Niels Peter Lemche surveys the development of the historical-critical method and the way it changed the scholarly perception of the Old Testament. In part 1 he describes the rise and influence of historical-critical approaches, while in part 2 he traces their decline and fall. Then, in part 3, he discusses the identity of the authors of the Old Testament, based on the content of the literature they wrote, demonstrating that the collapse of history does not preclude critical study. Part 4 investigates the theological consequences of this collapse and surveys Old Testament and biblical theology in its various manifestations in the twentieth century. An appendix includes a history of Palestine from the Stone Age to modern times, constructed without recourse to the Old Testament.

  • Corpse Came Back

    $22.95

    This story unfolds like a mystery thriller . . . the action packed, true, gripping account of the settling down of planet earth AFTER THE TOTAL WORLD WIPEOUT . . . and its effect upon human history. The Corpse Came Back begins with the handful of refugees on board their survival vessel-the ship of Noah-and their journey into the unknown, new world. Of course, the skeptics will have their questions, such as: If the Ark floated above the mountains, however could they breathe in that high-altitude rarified atmosphere? How could the frail, timid platypus have migrated to Australia from Ararat? Surely marsupials must be an isolated evolutionary development since their fossils are found nowhere else?

    Think about these questions and facts. Amazing scientific evidence shows that our biggest mountain ranges are barely 4,000+ years old. Was the Ice Age triggered by HEAT??? Why did civilization BEGIN in the mountains-instead of in the easily cultivated valleys and plains? Grand Canyon explorations-are there really ancient Egyptian remains in “off-limits” tunnels? The strange origin of the alphabet and much more!

  • Scribes Visionaries And The Politics Of Second Temple Judea

    Judaism and Christianity both arose in times of empire, with roots in Persian, Hellenistic, and Roman periods.

Horsley analyzes the function and meaning of these religious movements within their social context, providing essential background for the development of early Judaism and early Christianity. It is an ideal textbook for classes on the rise of Judaism or the Second Temple period, as well as Dead Sea Scrolls and Apocrypha.

  • Why Christianity Happened

    $33.00

    Looking beyond theological narratives and offering a sociological, economic, and historical examination of the spread of earliest Christianity, James Crossley presents a thoroughly secular and causal explanation for why the once law-observant movement within Judaism became the beginnings of a new religion. First analyzing the historiography of the New Testament and stressing the problematic omission of a social scientific account, Crossley applies a socioeconomic lens to the rise of the Jesus movement and the centrality of sinners to his mission. Using macrosociological approaches, he explains how Jesus’ Jewish teachings sparked the shift toward a gentile religion and an international monotheistic trend. Finally, using approaches from conversion studies, he provides a sociohistorical explanation for the rise of the Pauline mission.

  • Cave Of John The Baptist

    $23.00

    The first archaeological evidence of the historical reality of the Gospel story.

    From a historical point of view, the uniqueness of this cave is that it contains archaeological evidence that comes to us from the very time of the personalities and events described in the Gospels. For here is the largest ritual bathing pool ever found in the Jerusalem area, and found in the village where John the Baptist was born, showing unmistakable signs of ritual use in the first century AD. Also in the cave is the earliest ever Christian art, depicting John the Baptist as well as the three crosses of the crucifixion.

    By using the forensic techniques available to the modern archaeologist, Gibson and his international team have been able to draw information from the drawings, pottery, coins, bones, remains of ritual fire and pieces of cloth found in the cave and match these up with the contemporary literary sources. This is a unique opportunity to build up a picture of the very first Christians, how they lived and even what they believed.

  • Biblical Interpretation At Qumran

    $27.50

    The Dead Sea Scrolls are an invaluable source of information about Jewish biblical interpretation in antiquity. This volume by preeminent scholars in the field examines central aspects of scriptural interpretation as it was practiced at Qumran and discusses their implications for understanding the biblical tradition.

    While many of the forms of biblical interpretation found in the Scrolls have parallels elsewhere in Jewish literature, other kinds are original to the Scrolls and were unknown prior to the discovery of the caves. These chapters explore examples of biblical interpretation unique to Qumran, including legal exegesis and the Pesher. Readers will also find discussion of such fascinating subjects as the “rewritten Bible,” views on the creation of humanity, the “Pseudo-Ezekiel” texts, the pesharim, and the prophet David.

  • Future Of Biblical Archaelogy

    $37.50

    Biblical archaeology has long been a discipline in crisis. “Biblical minimalists,” who believe that the Bible contains little of actual historical fact, today are challenging those who accept the historicity of Scripture. In this volume Jewish and evangelical Christian archaeologists, historians, and biblical scholars confront the minimalist critique and offer positive alternatives.

    Bringing a needed scientific approach to biblical archaeology, the contributors construct a new paradigm that reads the Bible critically but sympathetically. Their work covers the full range of subjects relevant to understanding the context of the Bible, including proper approaches to scriptural interpretation, recent archaeological evidence, and new studies of Near Eastern texts and inscriptions.

  • Shifting Sands : The Rise And Fall Of Biblical Archaeology

    $57.00

    Description
    Before the 1970s, “biblical archaeology” was the dominant research paradigm for those excavating the history of Palestine. Today most people prefer to speak of “Syro/Palestinian archaeology.” This is not just a nominal shift but reflects a major threoretical and methodological change. It has even been labeled a revolution. In the popular mind, however, biblical archaeology is still alive and well. In Shifting Sands , Thomas W. Davis charts the evolution and the demise of the discipline. Biblical archaeology , he writes, was an attempt to ground the historical witness of the Bible in demonstrable historical reality. Its theoretical base lay in the field of theology. Davis traces the fascinating story of the interaction of biblical studies, theology, and archaeology in Palestine, and the remarkable individuals who pioneered the discipline. By clarifying the theoretical and methodological framework of the original excavators, he believes, these data can be made more useful for current research, allowing a more sober, reasoned judgment of both the accomplishments and the failures of biblical archaeology.

This ossuary is the first ever archaeological discovery directly confirming the existence of Jesus, and his relationship to his father, Joseph, and brother, James, who became the leader of the important Jewish Christian community in Jerusalem. No one is as qualified and well connected to recount the discovery and its authentication as Hershel Shanks, whose magazine first broke the story.

  • Tabernacle Insights

    $26.49

    This book will become the standard against which all other books on the tabernacle will be judged because the Holy Spirit is the co-author. From my extensive library on the tabernacle and new research, I wrote the background material and the Holy Spirit provided the insights. A chapter is included on each item from the courtyard posts to the Ark of the Covenant. I build the tabernacle one item at a time in great detail. Scripture is always quoted to back up everything that was written. The applicable typology, symbolism, and numerology are also detailed as each item in the tabernacle is addressed.

Do you know why 666 is Satan’s number? I do. I always thought that the building structure of the tabernacle contained predictions about the future. I was right because the Holy Spirit provided, through symbolism and numerology, great insights that run the gamut from the Alpha to the Omega.

  • Tabernacle Insights

    $16.49

    This book will become the standard against which all other books on the tabernacle will be judged because the Holy Spirit is the co-author. From my extensive library on the tabernacle and new research, I wrote the background material and the Holy Spirit provided the insights. A chapter is included on each item from the courtyard posts to the Ark of the Covenant. I build the tabernacle one item at a time in great detail. Scripture is always quoted to back up everything that was written. The applicable typology, symbolism, and numerology are also detailed as each item in the tabernacle is addressed.

  • Solving The Exodus Mystery 1

    $34.99

    For centuries scholars have searched in vain to identify in Babylonian and Egyptian documents the true Kings and Pharaohs of Abraham, Joseph, Moses & the Exodus. The search, rather than increasing faith in Biblical history, has created skepticism and unbelief. Ted Stewart has researched the ancient documents of Babylon and Egypt, plus the astronomical and carbon-14 dates of their kings and Pharaohs. His research uncovered a total of 436 evidences and synchronisms that confirm Biblical history. These remarkable historical and scientific evidences identify the true Biblical Pharaohs of Joseph, Moses and the Exodus, all in the twelfth dynasty of Egypt. Furthermore, the ten plagues of Egypt and the exodus of the Israelite slaves are recorded in a late twelfth-dynasty document that also describes the drowning of the last male Pharaoh of the twelfth dynasty and his army “by pouring water.” However, carbon-14 dating and new astronomical dating prove that the twelfth dynasty should be redated 300 years later in confirmation of the Bible dates. Dr. Thomas Langford, Dean Emeritus of the Graduate School of Texas Tech University says, “This book offers a remarkable tour through ancient Egyptian and Biblical history . . . and presents striking evidence for the Bible’s accuracy.” Dr. Truman Scott, Dean of Sunset International Bible Institute, evaluated this book as “a historical masterpiece that will surpass in importance the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls.”

  • Paul Beyond The Judaism Hellenism Divide

    $50.00

    This volume does away with the traditional strategy of playing “Judaism” and “Hellenism” off against each other as a context to understand Paul. This aim is reached in two ways: (1) in essays that display the ideological underpinnings of a “Jewish” and “Hellenistic” Paul in historical and modern scholarly interpretations of him, and (2) in essays that use case studies from the Corinthian correspondence that draw freely on “Jewish” and Greco-Roman” contextual material to illuminate this Pauline phenomena.

  • Peoples Of The Old Testament World

    $38.00

    Brian Rosner writes, As a Jew who became the apostle to the Gentiles, Paul stood between the Jewish and pagan worlds. Consequently New Testament scholars have long debated the question of the sources of Paul’s thought. To which sphere was he more indebted?” In Paul, Scripture, and Ethics, Rosner asks this question anew in regard to the source of Paul’s ethical teaching.

    In contrast to widely held scholarly opinion, Rosner uses Paul’s teaching in 1 Corinthians 5-7 (where he addresses incest, exclusion, greed, sexual immorality, the government, and marriage) to demonstrate that Paul was indebted to the Old Testament for his ethics.
