Revealed Histories

Full Product Description

Ancient Jewish and Christian writers frequently sought to persuade by claiming to understand the past through revelation. Hall shows how the long recitals of past events often found in apocalypses are not to be seen as mere preludes to predictions, but prove integral to the author's argument. This original study concludes that many ancient Jews and Christians found claims to inspiration an acceptable basis for re-telling past events and that early Christian prophets consciously shaped not only the sayings of Jesus but the narrative structure in which the sayings occur.

Revealed Histories by Robert Hall was published by Bloomsbury Publishing PLC in January 2015. The ISBN for Revealed Histories is 9781474230339.
