Richard Bauckham's New Book

Richard Bauckham's first volume of collected essays on certain aspects of the Jewish background of the New Testament is out:

Richard Bauckham, The Jewish World around the New Testament: Collected Essays I (548 pages worth!). Here are some of the articles:

  • The Rise of Apocalyptic
  • The Delay of the Parousia
  • The Son of Man: 'A Man in my Position' or 'Someone'?
  • The Apocalypses in J. H. Charlesworth's Old Testament PseudepigraphaPseudo-Apostolic Letters
  • The List of the Tribes of Israel in Revelation 7
  • The "Parting of the Ways": What Happened and Why
  • The Messianic Interpretation of Isaiah 10:34
  • The Relevance of Extra-Canonical Jewish Texts to New Testament Study
  • What if Paul had Travelled East rather than West?
  • Covenant, Law and Salvation in the Jewish Apocalypses
  • The Restoration of Israel in Luke-Acts
  • Paul and Other Jews with Latin Names in the New Testament
  • Tobit as a Parable for the Exiles of Northern Israel
  • The Continuing Quest for the Origins of the Old Testament Pseudepigrapha
The essays on the Son of Man, Parting of the Ways, Restoration in Luke-Acts, and Delay of the Parousia are classic Bauckham and I recommend those one's in particular. So in the very least, got your library to order a copy of this book!
