Jewish Interpretation of the Bible

Full Product Description

Although Jewish tradition gives tremendous importance to the Hebrew Bible, from the beginning Jewish interpretation of those scriptures has been practiced with remarkable freedom. Karin Hedner Zetterholm offers a clear and concise introduction to the legal, theological, and historical presuppositions that shaped the dominant stream of rabbinic interpretation, including Mishnah, Talmud, and Midrashim, discussing specific examples of different interpretive methods. She then explores the contours of Jewish biblical interpretation evident in the New Testament and the legacy of ancient traditions in the way different Jewish movements read the Bible today. Students of the history of biblical interpretation and of Judaism will find this an important and engaging resource.

Jewish Interpretation of the Bible by Karin Hedner Zetterholm was published by Augsburg Fortress Publishers in October 2012 and is our 60214th best seller. The ISBN for Jewish Interpretation of the Bible is 9780800697983.
