Crossing Boundaries in Early Judaism and Christianity : Ambiguities, Complexities, and Half-Forgotten - image 1 of 1

About this item

Scholars of religion and of Jewish-Christian relations explore two powers in Heaven (heavenly ascent and angelification) Rebecca's Children (Jewish Christian origins), Paul the covert (conversion, apostasy, identity), life after death (death and the treatment of death), and sinning in the Hebrew Bible (morality, theodicy, theology). Among their topics are theosis through works of the law: deification of the earthly righteous in classical rabbinic thought, antiquity's children: history and theology in three surveys, the interpreter as intertext: Origen's first homily on the Canticle of Canticles, the lament of the martyrs and the literature of destruction in Revelation 6:10, and from theodicy to anti-theodicy: Midrashic accusations of God's disobedience to biblical law.
