The present volume of the DCLY collects the contributions of the International Conference of the a oeInternational Society for the Study of Deuterocanonical and Cognate Literaturea (ISDCL), held in TA1/4bingen/Germany. The articles on the reception and function of Biblical figures in Deuterocanonical and other Early Jewish Literature are devoted to the question of how the meaning of individual biblical figures changed in Hellenistic times. In a variety of approaches, the religious function of these figures in a period of vast political and cultural changes is analyzed, as well as their role in the process of re-establishing Jewish identity in a time, in which the Jewish people suffered from harsh oppression and lived scattered throughout the world. The attempt to address the question of changing perceptions of Biblical figures as well theologically and historically is a first step on the way towards an integration of the topic in the larger framework of a systematic reviewing of post-Biblical theological developments.

The volume contains papers read at the International Conference of the ISDCL, held in Budapest in 2015. The contributors explore various aspects of worship as reflected in the literature of Judaism from the Second Temple period to Late Antiquity. The volume provides a fresh reading of various crucial issues especially within Old Testament Apocrypha and Pseudepigrapha, Rabbinic literature, Gnostic traditions, and the emerging synagogue. The papers analyse texts and artefacts that reveal how various groups of Judaism understood the concept of worship—a pre-eminent form of expressing religious identity and interpreting fundamental traditions.

The essays compiled in this volume analyze the use, function, and structure of metaphors in Jewish writings from the Hellenistic-Roman period (including the works of Philo and the texts of Qumran), as well as in apocryphal early Christian texts and inscriptions.

In his articles Stefan Reif’s articles have dealt with Jewish biblical exegesis and the close analysis of the evolution of Jewish prayer texts. Some fourteen of these that appeared in various collective volumes are here made more easily available, together with a major new study of Numbers 13, an introduction and extensive indexes. Reif attempts to establish whether there is any linguistic, literary and exegetical value in the traditional Jewish interpretation of the Hebrew Bible for the modern scientific approach to such texts and whether such an approach itself is always free of theological bias. He demonstrates how Jewish liturgical texts may illuminate religious teachings about wisdom, history, peace, forgiveness, and divine metaphors. Also clarified in these essays are notions of David, Greek and Hebrew, divine metaphors, and the liturgical use of the Hebrew Bible.

Eines der originellsten und wichtigsten Jesus-Bücher seit Jahren Als Hunde wurden die griechischen Kyniker verspottet, allen voran Diogenes in seiner Tonne, weil sie wie Hunde auf der Straße lebten und ihre Bedürfnislosigkeit zur Schau stellten. Dass Jesu Lehre von Besitzlosigkeit und Nächstenliebe viele Gemeinsamkeiten mit Leben und Lehre der Kyniker aufweist, ist seit längerem bekannt. Bernhard Lang zeigt erstmals die Gründe dafür. Vor allem in den griechisch geprägten Städten Palästinas war ein jüdischer Kynismus verbreitet, der den Propheten Elia als Vorbild verehrte und griechische Philosophie mit jüdischer Tradition verband. Mit diesem jüdischen Kynismus muss Jesus in Kontakt gekommen sein, ja, er war ein Anhänger und zunehmend auch ein Prediger dieser Lehre, der noch in seiner Todesstunde Elia als Nothelfer anrief. Wer dieses anschauliche und bestechend argumentierende Buch gelesen hat, kommt nicht umhin, Jesus mit anderen Augen zu sehen
