The Sicarii In Josephus S Judean War

This book offers a comprehensive study of the Sicarii in Josephus s Judean War. Detailed rhetorical analyses are provided not only for the Masada narrative, where Josephus tells how the Sicarii famously committed suicide, but also for all other places in War where their activities are described or must be inferred from the context. The study shows how Josephus adopted the Sicarii in his narrative to develop and bring to a resolution several major themes in War. In a departure from the classical proposal that the Sicarii were an armed and fanatical off-shoot of the Zealots, this work concludes that from a historical perspective, Sicarii was a somewhat fluid term used to describe Jews of the Judean revolt who were associated with acts of violence against their own people for religious/political ends.

Rather, women in antiquity could be found anywhere along the spectrum of society, from voiceless slave to wealthy landowner. An indispensable work for understanding the variegated nature of women in the ancient world and the gospel s impact upon them.

The Holocaust In Historical Context

With this volume, Steven T. Katz initiates the provocative argument that the Holocaust is a singular event in human history. Unlike any previous work on the subject, The Holocaust in Historical Context maintains that the Holocaust is the only example of true genocide--a systematic attempt to kill all the members of a group--in history. In a richly documented, subtly argued, and amazingly wide-ranging comparative historical and phenomenological analysis, Katz explores the philosophical and historiographical implications of the uniqueness of the Holocaust. After he establishes the nature of genocide, Katz examines other occasions of mass death to which the Holocaust is regularly compared from slavery in the ancient world to the medieval persecution of heretics, from the depopulation of the New World to the Armenian massacres during World War I, and from the Gulag to Cambodia. In the first of three volumes, Katz, after setting the groundwork for his analysis with four chapters dealing with essential methodological issues, begins his comparative case studies with slavery in the ancient Greek and Roman world, and continues with such subjects as medieval antisemitism, the European witch craze, the medieval wars of religion, the medieval persecution of homosexuals, and the French campaign against Huguenots. Throughout this investigation of pre-modern Jewish and non-Jewish history, Katz looks at the ways in which the Holocaust has precedents and parallels, and in what way it stands alone as a singular, highly distinctive historical event.

The Abomination Of Desolation In The Gospel Of Mark

Editor: University Press of Amer
ISBN:
File Size: 45,63 MB

The Abomination of Desolation in the Gospel of Mark argues that the appearance of the Abomination of Desolation is the trigger launching the end time for Mark's community which resulted in the construction of the gospel and set in motion the imminent coming of the Son of Man. The author clarifies the claim that the event lying behind this phrase is the destruction of the Jerusalem temple by the Roman commander Titus in 70 C.E. The main point of the book establishes in an unprecedented manner that verse 14, along with verse 26 constitutes the dual focus of Mark 13, and that Titus is the historical referent in verse 14, based on the last twenty-five years of Markan research. This conclusion arises from the demonstration that the possibility of flight in Judaea after September 70 C.E. exists, and provided a rationale for Mark's expectations of that period. The author points out that Mark connected Titus' act with Jerusalem's destruction and Jesus' execution in the same place, by the same political power, and endowed with theological significance. Therefore, a model of the past based on an event in Jerusalem provides an efficacious parallel for Mark's eschatology.

In this book, Bruce W. Winter maps out the role and obligations of Christians as benefactors and citizens in their society. Winter's scholarly insight is enhanced through the selective use of important ancient literary and nonliterary sources. Contrary to the popular perception that early Christians withdrew from society and sought to maintain a low profile, this outstanding study explores the complexities of the positive commitments made by Christians in Gentile regions of the Roman empire.
