Revolt of the Scribes

Full Product Description

In previous studies, Richard A. Horsley has set Jesus in the context of Jewish prophetic and social banditry movements and has elaborated the imperial context of the New Testament writings. Here he surveys responses in Second Temple Jewish literature to the rise of Hellenistic and Roman empires, discovering in a range of apocalyptic writings the traces of a coherent movement of defiance, critique, and resistance to tyranny. Revolt of the Scribes breaks new ground in the study of apocalyptic origins and in our understanding of Jewish life in the Greco-Roman world.

Revolt of the Scribes by Richard A. Horsley was published by Augsburg Fortress Publishers in September 2009 and is our 63969th best seller. The ISBN for Revolt of the Scribes is 9780800662967.
