I'm trying to get to grips with early Judaism/Second Temple studies, and am interested in what you'd recommend, particularly (but not exclusively) in Logos. I think I've got most things, but is there anything I've missed? Below is a copy of my Second Temple collection so you know what I've already got. I'm not interested in the later literature (e.g. Talmuds, etc.).

Any help appreciated. Thanks!

I'm not sure if Logos has Jewish Literature between the Bible and the Mishnah byGeorge W. E. Nickelsburg for sale digitally only, but the Second Edition of the book comes with a CD of the text and other things for import into Logos.  It's a great deal.

Also, make sure you sign up for the Pre-pub of Charlesworth's Old Testament Pseudepigrapha, which has become a standard in 2nd Temple studies.  Bock's book Jesus According to Scripture, which contains loads of information on 2nd Temple Judaism is also on Pre-pub.

Excuse me for jumping in here... I'm actually interested in the topic.

Lee, does the CD actually contain a Libronix based resource or does it just link into Logos?

Thanks

 

Mark,

Is the "Evans, Craig A. The Interpretation of Scripture in Early Judaism and Christianity" resource part of a base package or volume set (under some other name)? I did a search  for Evans and got Vol. 1 & 2 of "Of Scribes and Sages" but didn't see "The Interpretation of Scripture in Early Judaism and Christianity".

Thanks

Thanks, Lee. I've already got both those pre-pubs on order, and am particularly looking forward to Charlesworth (I have Bock in paper already). Last night I also asked Logos if it was possible to purchase Nickelsburg as a download (shipping is expensive to the UK). Currently it's only available on CD. They're getting back to me.

Never mind, I finally found it in the "Hermeneutics Collection" .

Has a section on Second Temple Messianism:

Horbury, William. Messianism among Jews and Christian:Twelve Biblical and Historical Studies.

Numerous articles in

Biblical Archaeological Review (BAR), Biblical Archaeologist (BA now NEA), Journal of Hebrew Scriptures, and Semia.

Have to run out for now, but will check further tonight.

Here are a few I have tagged in Logos:

Joel Marcus, The Way of the Lord: Christological Exegesis of the Old Testament in the Gospel of Mark.

David Orton, The Understanding Scribe: Matthew and the Apocalyptic Ideal.

Peter Tomson, ‘If This Be from Heaven…’: Jesus and the New Testament Authors in Their Relationship to Judaism.

Richard N. Longenecker, Biblical Exegesis in the Apostolic Period.

Eric Eve, The Jewish Context of Jesus’ Miracles.

Dan Cohn-Sherbok and John M. Court, Religious Diversity in the Graeco-Roman World: A Survey of Recent Scholarship.

I've read the first one all the way through when teaching a Bible study on Mark - excellent background material. I'm currently trying to read through the second one in connection with teaching Matthew (I have no Hebrew so it's a struggle). Longenecker in an earlier version was used when I took a class in Apostolic Hermeneutics.  I referred to Eve a bit when I taught Mark. The other two just looked interesting and are on my ever-expanding reading list.

It is a Libronix resource. The CD contains the text, the images, and a helpful study guide which includes chapter summaries, questions, key web links, and links to images.  Right now you import it into 3.0, sync  your licenses then sync your licenses in 4.0 for it to download.  Sometimes this requires a call to Logos right now, but they've been very helpful.

Mark,

you might want to consult

Jewish Intertestamental And Early Rabbinic Literature: An Annotated Bibliographic Resource by David W. Chapman and Andreas J. Köstenberger

Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society Volume 43, no 3 , 570-618. (available in Logos of course (Theological Journal library) and current for resources published up to 2000)

Craig Evans' Ancient Texts For New Testament Studies: A Guide To The Background Literature Hendrickson Publishers (November 2005).

I would also suggest the "new" series by David Instone-Brewer: Traditions Of The Rabbis From The Era Of The New Testament (two of six volumes published so far. very useful for rabbinic material (from the Mishna) that might be temporary to Christ and the apostles (explores dating/,methodology, and understanding of the relevance of the material to our understanding of pre- 70 AD Judaism). published in 2004 and 2007

the last two resources would be a good addition to Logos

Rosie Perera:

Alon, Gedalyahu. Jews, Judaism, and the Classical World: Studies in Jewish History in the Times of the Second Temple and Talmud.

 

I just realized you have this same title listed, but you have it under the translator's name, not the author. Does it show up with Abrahams as the author's name in your library?

Rosie Perera:

Skarsaune, Oskar. In the Shadow of the Temple: Jewish Influences on Early Christianity.

And I see that Bohuslav already recommended this one.

Rosie Perera:

Yadin, Azzan. Judaism of the Second Temple Period.

And I realized you have this one listed under the other author's name. I made my list up manually (sorting by author) and missed the fact that this one had two authors.
