    Leviticus 1-16 ; Anchor Bible Commentary

    Product Description

    At the beginning of his academic career, author Jacob Milgrom determined to make his lifework a probing study of the Laws of the Torah. Here, with Leviticus 1-16, the first of three volumes on Leviticus, he has reached the pinnacle of his long pursuit. No other contemporary commentary matches Milgrom’s comprehensive work on this much misunderstood and often underappreciated biblical book.

    In this richly detailed volume, the author traverses the shoals of legal thought and liturgical practice in ancient Israel. He clearly explains the role of the Tabernacle of the Wilderness as the all-important center of Israelite worship, the locus of the priestly orders, sacrificial rituals, and practices of purity to which the congregation repaired for penitence and reconciliation, restoration and renewal. At the heart of the dwelling place of God was the real presence of the God of Israel, present through his splendor in the midst of the camp and the congregation – a permanent sign of the unique privilege and responsibility of Israel, perceived as a worshipping and serving people.

    Jacob Milgrom, an ordained rabbi active in his profession, is Emeritus Professor of Hebrew and Bible at the University of California, Berkeley, and a widely published author. Distinguished author of 4 books and over 10 scholarly articles on the Bible, Milgrom is a Guggenheim Fellow, a Fulbright Fellow, a Fellow of the Institute of Advanced studies at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, and a Fellow of the American Academy of Jewish Research.
