Product Description

Renowned biblical scholar Richard Bauckham believes that the New Testament texts cannot be adequately understood without careful attention to their Judaic and Second Temple roots.

This book, The Jewish World Around the NT contains twenty-four studies (formerly published as journal articles) that shed essential light on the religious and biblical-interpretive matrix in which early Christianity emerged. Bauckham discusses the "parting of the ways" between early Judaism and early Christianity and the relevance of early Jewish literature for the study of the New Testament.

He also explores specific aspects or texts of early Christianity by relating them to their early Jewish context. Originally published by Mohr Siebeck, this book is now available as an affordable North American paperback edition. It is a corecipient of the Franz-Delitzsch Award for 2010, offered by the Institute for Israel Studies in Giessen, Germany.

Academic Peer Reviews

Bauckham's essays are fresh in their approach, inspiring, erudite, and well argued throughout. They show the methods and the promise of studying early Judaism for its own sake and in order to understand the New Testament in the Jewish world around it. The volume has left me with new insights and much to ponder and pursue."
--Christoph Stenschke
Review of Biblical Literature

"The author's contributions to the study of both ancient Judaism and the New Testament are such that one can only rejoice at the appearing of a volume that gathers twenty-three studies originally published between 1976 and 2008. Here they are very conveniently brought together and supplied with several indexes. . . . The essays . . . are all detailed and stimulating."
--Christian Grappe
