Product Description

Dedicated to prominent biblical scholar John J. Collins, The "Other" in Second Temple Judaism explores the various ways in which Jews living in the Hellenistic and early Roman periods (both in the land of Israel and the Diaspora) constructed their identity in relation to other Jews, pagans, and Christians.

The twenty-eight contributors - comprising both seasoned scholars and rising stars in the field - interact with Collins's work as they engage the book's unifying theme, focusing their efforts around five areas of scholarly inquiry that reflect the scope of Collins's distinguished career:

  • The Hebrew Bible and Its Reception
  • Wisdom
  • Apocalypticism
  • The Dead Sea Scrolls
  • Jews among Greeks and Romans
