Product Description

One of the prime components of any system of biblical study is the understanding that God has revealed himself, not only though his Word but throughout the ages in varying places. The pinnacle of all theophanies recorded in the Scriptures was God's revelation to Moses on Mount Sinai. Author Jeffrey J. Niehaus notes that this encounter was a theophany so significant that he employs the term "Sinai theology" to convey his theme in his book. God at Sinai explores the meaning of this theophany throughout the Old Testament, both pre and post-Sinai (especially the prophets), as well as in the Psalms - and notes its significance for the whole of the New Testament. Niehaus also goes on to examine parallels in ancient Near Eastern traditions.

Publisher's Description

The basis of all biblical study is that God has revealed himself, not only through the Word, but in various ways in various times and places. These self-disclosures are called theophanies. The pivotal theophany in Old Testament times was God's revelation to Moses on Mount Sinai. So significant is this theophany in terms of God's covenant with his people and his progressive revelation that author Jeffrey J. Niehaus justifiably employs the term "Sinai theology" to convey his theme. This book explores the meaning of this theophany throughout the Old Testament -- pre-Sinai, post-Sinai (especially the prophets), and the Psalms -- and its significance for the New Testament. It also examines parallels in ancient Near Eastern traditions.

    Bob Brown
    Full of brilliant and marvelous insights, spoiled only by the repeated reference and comparison to ancient middle eastern mythologies. The critique of the history of the higher criticism movement is valuable, as are the many comparisons drawn between scripture passages. The author has a talent for literary criticism, and a heart for God. Possibly a good choice for an Old Testament scholar.
