The Hebrew Gospel of Matthew
By author: George Howard
Product Code: P349
ISBN: 9780865549890
Product Format: Paperback
Availability: In stock
Price: $40.00
For centuries the Jewish community in Europe possessed a copy of Matthew in the Hebrew language. The Jews' use of this document during the Middle Ages is imperfectly known. Occasionally excerpts from it appeared in polemical writings against Christianity. By the end of the fourteenth century, however, the entire Hebrew Gospel appeared in the polemical treatise Even Bonham, by the Spanish writer Shem-Tob ben -Isaac ben- Shaprut. An important thrust to this volume is to establish that the Hebrew Matthew of the Even Bohan predates the fourteenth century. It shares many readings with ancient Christian writings, some of which were lost in antiquity only to reappear in modern times. These included Codex Sinaiticus, the Old Syriac version, the Coptic Gospel of Thomas, and a host of others. It also analyzes the language, artistic touches, and theology of the Hebrew Gospel.

Price: $35.00
The book of Acts contains the only biblical narrative of the events that occurred in the early church between the early first-century ministry of Jesus and the early to mid-second-century emergence of the Christian apologists. These new investigations into Acts originated from the 2006 and 2007 meetings of the SBL section on ACTS. These essays reexamine the origin and reception of Acts as a document within the larger world of early Christianity. The list of contributors includes both well-established and emerging leaders in Acts studies.

New Testament scholars often proceed with their work as if their methods and areas of inquiry were predetermined. This work provides three important services for New Testament study, and Acts scholarship in particular. First, the work surveys contemporary Acts scholarship on two important topics of the day: the genre of Acts and issues of wealth and poverty in Luke-Acts. Second, this volume provides a careful analysis of the process of interpretation and calls for greater self-awareness among critical readers of Acts. Third, this book urges scholars to open themselves to new and broader areas of inquiry in the study of Acts.

Jesus’ identity is not simply “out there” to be discovered scientifically. Jesus’ identity is shaped historically in believers’ experience with him. This book addresses twenty-first-century Christians who are challenged intellectually and spiritually to read the Gospels’ story of Jesus in light of what contemporary scholarship offers for understanding the first-century prophet from Nazareth.

Hidden Mark: Exploring Christianity's Heretical Gospel
By author: John Killinger
Publisher: Mercer University Press
Product Code: P416
ISBN: 9780881462234
Product Format: Paperback
Availability: In stock
Price: $18.00
Well-known preacher and literary scholar John Killinger has combined his talents to provide a revolutionary study of the Gospel of Mark. On the basis of textual patterns he discovered in a Gospel long believed to be “naive” and “unstudied,” Killinger reveals evidence that the two calming-of-the-sea stories traditionally regarded as miracles are actually post-resurrection stories. This explanation not only accounts for the absence of such stories at the end of the Gospel, where the other Gospels place them, but suggests that Mark might actually be a Gnostic document, as the Gnostics believed in the resurrection of Jesus but did not emphasize his physical resurrection.

Peter’s Last Sermon: Identity and Discipleship in the Gospel of Mark

Publisher: Mercer University Press
Product Code: P417
ISBN: 9780881462241
Product Format: Paperback
Availability: In stock
Price: $25.00
What Christian would not want to hear Mark’s gospel as the first believers heard it? Using the tools of modern scholarship, Peter’s Last Sermon takes seriously Mark’s audience. The community would have heard rather than read the gospel. It would have encountered the story as a whole instead of piecemeal in short texts for sermons. Missing would have been the static of Matthew, Luke, and John.
