Special attention is paid to the Scrolls of War from Qumran, to the concepts of Holy War and Divine Warrior, to Josephus and to war and peace in the Book of Psalms.Visions of peace are discussed in contributions that give attention to the Idea of Peace in Antiquity, to peace in Jewish Prayer, to the collocation 'covenant of peace', as well as to specific passages in the books of Micha and Isaiah, and in the Gospel of Matthew.

Metaphors are a vital linguistic component of religious speech and serve as a cultural indicator of how groups understand themselves and the world. 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.

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.

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.
