Product Description

Edmondo Lupieri's main goal in A Commentary on the Apocalypse of John is to introduce readers to the mental and spiritual world of John as both a first-century Jew and a follower of Jesus. The fruit of over ten years of research, a constructive response to postmodern criticism, and an academic best-seller in its Italian edition, Lupieri's commentary offers both new proposals and traditional interpretations to shed light on this complex coda to the biblical message.
In the preface Lupieri discusses the strange world of the Apocalypse and promises an open commentary, full of original treatments of knotty interpretive problems. Maintaining a strong historical perspective throughout, he examines the text of the Apocalypse line by line, paying careful attention to the Greek text, offering a new translation, making wide use of apocryphal, pseudepigraphal, and Qumran literature, and often analyzing John's Apocalypse as compared to other Jewish apocalypses. Part of the Italian Texts and Studies on Religion and Society Series.

    An interesting commentary on an even more interesting book of the Bible. The thing I like most about this monograph is the section near the front that provides the entire book of the Revelation in Greek and then a translation in English, and these are set side by side (Greek on the left and English on the right, much like you see in a Loeb Classical Library volume), rather than interspersing this content throughout the commentary. I think this is an excellent practice, to see the entirety of the book in context, and provides a useful resource even if you don't agree with points in the commentary itself.
