    [quote user="Steve Maling"] Thank you, Jan! I am really glad to have gotten the New Jerusalem Bible with its notes for only $9.99! [/quote] I do remember that the NJB had great notes back in the day. But how does it compare with the Oxford Catholic Study Bible, for instance?

Some of these volumes have been translated into English and are in available in Logos in the Hermeneia series, and Schnackenburg of Ephesians . But while

    In short, this shows why I was taught to do text critical work first to establish the text when doing exegesis. The rest of your analysis can be significantly changed depending on what exactly is the text you use.

    [quote user="Mark Barnes"] It's worth knowing that Milgrom was a Conservative Jewish rabbi, and doesn't interpret the Old Testament christologically, or in the light of the NT.* He's not the only one, of course. Many of the Old Testament critical commentators take a similar stance. If the purpose of all of Scripture is to point to Jesus Christ, Milgrom

    Jacob Milgrom has studied the Priestly/Holiness material in the Pentateuch more than any scholar I know, writing a magisterial 3 volume commentary on Leviticus for the Anchor-Yale Bible series. In my opinion, agree or disagree with Milgrom on Leviticus, a scholar of Leviticus cannot avoid interacting with him. The above volume is a decent digest of
