About this Item

Neuware - Erkki Koskenniemi analyzes the most important early Jewish texts, which attribute miracles to people mentioned in the Old Testament. He investigates the miracles of Moses, Elijah and Elisha, but also, for example, the extra-biblical deeds of men like Abraham, David and Solomon. The author looks at the development of the traditional elements of the miracle stories and the theological intentions of every writer who deals with these stories. The Jewish tradition of miracle-workers is rich and multifaceted. There was no rule that the biblical stories should be retold as they were written. Miracles could thus be connected with different types of historiography or even, in one case, with a tragedy, which was an imitation of Aeschylus' great work. The investigation of this rich tradition helps us to better understand the early Jewish belief as well as the early Christian world. 368 pp. Deutsch. Bookseller Inventory # 9783161482021

About this title


John Lierman investigates the ways in which the New Testament writings, read within the context of ancient Judaism, envisage the relationship of Moses to Israel and to the Jewish people. His study shows how New Testament material can illuminate aspects of ancient Judaism and at the same time throws fresh light on the importance of the figure of Moses for NT religion and theology, especially Christology.The book contributes to the study of Judaism by broadening the understanding of ancient Jewish conceptions of Moses. It also illuminates points of contact between the New Testament books and other ancient Jewish writings, and confirms that central elements in New Testament religion and theology can be understood as Jewish interpretations of the biblical tradition.By supplying a fresh assessment of Moses as envisaged in the early Church the author sets the study of NT Christology on more solid footing. He suggests that Christology developed from the first in closer connection with the figure of Moses than has been generally recognized.
