Product Description

The Anchor Bible: Leviticus 17-22 A New Translation with Introduction and Commentary brings us to the heart of the book. These chapters focus mainly on the practice of holiness required of laity and priest alike. The Commandments that lead to holiness are detailed in Chapter 19, the core of the book, if not the whole Torah. The acme of this chapter, the author maintains is not "love your neighbor (read Israelites) as yourself", but love him (read the alien) as yourself", endowing him with equal civil rights. With its English translations that convey the nuance and power of the original Hebrew, this commentary takes its place alongside the best of the Anchor Bible Commentaries.

Publisher's Description

Leviticus was to early Israel what the Constitution was to the fledgeling United States. In Leviticus 17-22 world-class Bible scholar and rabbi Jacob Milgrom shows us what the law means and how it defines those who adhere to it.

Series Overview

The Anchor Yale Bible is a project of international and interfaith scope in which Protestant, Catholic, and Jewish scholars from many countries contribute individual volumes. The project is not sponsored by any ecclesiastical organization and is not intended to reflect any particular theological doctrine.

The Anchor Yale Bible is committed to producing commentaries in the tradition established half a century ago by the founders of the series, William Foxwell Albright and David Noel Freedman. It aims to present the best contemporary scholarship in a way that is accessible not only to scholars but also to the educated nonspecialist. Its approach is grounded in exact translation of the ancient languages and an appreciation of the historical and cultural context in which the biblical books were written supplemented by insights from modern methods, such as sociological and literary criticism.
