Publisher's Description

A Companion to Biblical Interpretation in Early Judaism presents eighteen commissioned articles on biblical exegesis in early Judaism, covering the period after the Hebrew Bible was written and before the beginning of rabbinic Judaism. The essays, all written by experts in the field, are arranged in seven categories: Hebrew Bible, Rewritten Bible, Qumran Literature, Apocalyptic Literature and Testaments, Wisdom Literature, Hellenistic Judaism, and Biblical Interpretation in Antiquity. Together these essays provide a systematic and comprehensive introduction to the diverse modes of scriptural interpretation practiced by a variegated and dynamic spectrum of Jewish groups in the Hellenistic and early Roman eras.

Editorial Reviews

Theological Book Review
"A very valuable collection of essays."

Catholic Biblical Quarterly
"This well-balanced, selective Companion provides a roadmap to the extensive terminology and developments associated with biblical reception and interpretation in Second Temple Judah. . . . Focused, informative, reliable."
 
Journal for the Study of the New Testament
"This is an excellent book. . . . Both established researchers and newer students in the field will find much of value in this volume, not least the up-to-date bibliographies at the end of each chapter."
 
Review of Biblical Literature
"This is a very helpful collection of essays and will serve as a needed reference work. . . . A much-needed volume and we can all be glad to have it in an inexpensive edition."
 
Hebrew Studies
"Brings together a collection of essays about authors and works stretching in time from the Hebrew Bible itself up until the cusp of rabbinic literature. . . . Scholars, in their roles both as researchers and as instructors, will find the entire volume valuable for its individual contributions."
 
Reviews in Religion and Theology
"The Companion makes an important topic, covering a large field, available in relatively short, but highly informative and overall well written chapters. . . . The book is imperative for students of the history of biblical interpretation. However, also related fields, such as Jewish interpretation, biblical interpretation in general or even background to the New Testament, would benefit from this fine work."
