Riches, Poverty, and the Faithful
Full Product Description
Mark D. Mathews argues that John's rejection of affluence was instead shaped by ideas in the Jewish literature of the Second Temple period which associated the rich with the wicked and viewed the poor as the righteous. Mathews explores how traditions preserved in the Epistle of Enoch and later Enochic texts played a formative role in shaping John's theological perspective. This book will be of interest to those researching poverty and wealth in early Christian communities and the relationship between the traditions preserved in the Dead Sea Scrolls and New Testament.
Riches, Poverty, and the Faithful by Mark D. Mathews was published by Cambridge University Press in February 2013. The ISBN for Riches, Poverty, and the Faithful is 9781107018501.
