Product Description

Major scholars look at new evidence on this thorny issue and in the process knock down centuries-old straw men. The Messiah neatly surveys currents of messianic thought in the formative centuries of Judaism and Christianity, providing precision in thinking about "messianic" images and tradition. Leading scholars offer succinct and illuminating essays on the traditions that decisively shaped Jewish and Christian belief in a messiah. Includes two maps, a timeline of persons, events, and literature, and a glossary of terms. Features John Collins on ancient Judaism; Adela Collins on the Synoptics; Magnus Zetterholm on Paul; Karin Hedner-Zetterholm on the Mishnah and Babylonian Talmud; Jan-Eric Steppa on the post-apostolic church. 192 Pages. Softcover from Fortress Press.

About the Editor: Magnus Zetterholm is Adjunct Associate Professor in Religious Studies at Linkoping University, Sweden. He is the author of The Formation of Christianity in Antioch: A Social-Scientific Approach to the Separation between Judaism and Christianity and coeditor of The Ancient Synagogue from Its Origins until 200 C.E.
