He was Israels beloved champion. Not only had he saved the kingdom, but the lives of Hassar Jonathan and King Shaul as well. Even so, Shaul took away his freedom . . . and then gave him the generals mantle. A bittersweet reward indeed for Yahwehs chosen one.But he wasnt ready yet to lead the armies of Israelor to accept his true status as Mashiah. He needed timeand the hassars relentless training. Roeh Shamuels steady guidance calmed his fears: If you are to fulfill Yahwehs task, you must accept the place He has for you and conduct yourself in such a manner as to bring honor to the One who gave it to you."And so, despite Abners blatant contempt and Shauls persistent censure, regardless of his own failure or triumph in battle, he chose unswerving loyalty to Yahweh. No one would ever fully understand the consequences of such devotion.No one but Jonathan.

Few topics are as broad or as daunting as the God of Israel, that deity of the world's three monotheistic religions, Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, who has been worshiped over millennia. In the Hebrew Bible, God is characterized variously as militant, beneficent, inscrutable, loving, and judicious. Who is this divinity that has been represented as masculine and feminine, mythic and real, transcendent and intimate? The Origin and Character of God is Theodore J. Lewis's monumental study of the vast subject that is the God of Israel. In it, he explores questions of historical origin, how God was characterized in literature, and how he was represented in archaeology and iconography. He also brings us into the lived reality of religious experience. Using the window of divinity to peer into the varieties of religious experience in ancient Israel, Lewis explores the royal use of religion for power, prestige, and control; the intimacy of family and household religion; priestly prerogatives and cultic status; prophetic challenges to injustice; and the pondering of theodicy by poetic sages. A volume that is encyclopedic in scope but accessible in tone, The Origin and Character of God is an essential addition to the growing scholarship of one of humanity's most enduring concepts.

God Is a Warrior traces the development of the "divine warrior" motif through the Old and New Testaments, beginning with Israel's conflicts with her enemies and ending with Christ's victorious return in Revelation. Against the broader background of Ancient Near Eastern warrior mythology, Part I discusses Yahweh's warfare on behalf of ancient Israel, and prophecies of the coming Divine Deliverer. Part II looks at the New Testament's Divine Warrior, Jesus Christ, and his war against his spiritual enemies in the Synoptic Gospels, in Paul's letters, and in the final apocalyptic battle in the book of Revelation.

"The author of Ephesians shows an interest in the Isaianic new exodus (INE) in facilitating his focus on the present triumph of the people of God. The recipients required both insight and confidence, especially in regard to the certainty of their salvation, its mysterious nature, Jewish-Gentile relations, and their former manner of life. In the face of these challenges the author maintains that victory is secured through God's choice of them and the working of his redemptive program--which inevitably leads to triumphal blessings. As with the exodus-era Hebrews, the readers participate in paschal redemption, now embodied in Christ, along with his resurrection and ascension as the triumphant new exodus warrior over principalities and powers. In addition, and as predicted by OT writers, Gentile proselytes share the blessings of the new exodus, but now on equal footing and access as Jewish Christians--creating a new eschatological temple. Triumphant Christ distributes gifts, facilitates Spirit-endowed living, and enables Christian warfare that mirrors Yahweh and his servant. The recipients of the epistle appear to be called to view INE triumph as above, below, now and not yet, while not discarding current applications on earth. "

"This is a semantic investigation of spirituality in ancient Israel as mirrored in the Book of Isaiah. Particular attention is given to the concept of faith in Yahweh." "There are two main approaches. Firstly, verbs describing man's relation to Yahweh are studied according to the semantic fields of Attention, Emotion, Motion, religious Acting and Consummation. Secondly, divine epithets used for confessions to Yahweh are studied according to their semantic fields: Divine Terms, Ethical Terms, Creation Terms, Royal Terms, Military Terms, Anthropological Terms, and Family Terms. Both the verbs and the divine epithets are studied in relation to their semantic fields and in their context, followed throughout the whole Book of Isaiah, and summarised according to the main units of as well as the complete Book of Isaiah." "The intention is to find how the vocabulary of the Book of Isaiah reflects the spiritual life of ancient Israel in the 8th and 6th century BC - and later."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Jewish and Christian perceptions of the Second Temple in Jerusalem are explored here in twenty essays. The main subjects are Jewish public opinion before and after Herod's new building, the temple in Christian origins and the New Testament, and views of the Jewish cultus in the early church. Foci of discussion include the temple in connection with kingship and messianism, positive and negative attitudes to the temple, and Jewish and Christian use of temple imagery. The book was presented by pupils, friends and colleagues to Ernst Bammel, Reader in Jewish and Early Christian Studies in the University of Cambridge. His rich bibliography (1945-91) is printed in conclusion.

In the Judeo-Christian tradition, the deity Yahweh is often portrayed as an old man. One of the epithets used of Yahweh in the Hebrew Bible, the Ancient of Days, is a source for this depiction of God as elderly. However, when we look closely at the early traditions of biblical Israel, we see a different picture: God is relatively youthful, a warrior who defends his people. This book is an examination of the question How did God become old? To answer this question, Bembry examines the way that aging and elderly human beings are portrayed in the Hebrew Bible. Then he makes a similar foray into the texts written in Ugaritic (a language quite close to ancient Hebrew), which provide a window into the ancient culture just north of Israel during the Late Bronze Age. He finds that Israel’s God shared attributes with the Ugaritic deities Baal and El. One prominent aspect of the similar attributes was that Yahweh’s depiction as a youthful warrior paralleled the way Baal was portrayed. The transformation from young deity to Ancient of Days took place at the intersection of two trajectories in the traditions of Israel. One trajectory is reflected in the way that apocalyptic traditions found in the book of Daniel recast the old Canaanite mythic imagery seen in the Ugaritic and early biblical texts. This trajectory allows Yahweh to take on qualities, such as old age, that were not associated with him during most of Israel’s history but were associated with El in the Canaanite traditions. The second trajectory, a depiction of Israel’s God as elderly, is connected with the development of the idea of Yahweh as father. The more comfortable the biblical tradents became with portraying Yahweh as a father—a metaphor that was not embraced in the early traditions—the easier it became for the people of Israel to think of Yahweh as occupying a stage of the human life cycle. These two trajectories came together in the 2nd century B.C.E., the chronological backdrop for Daniel 7, and found expression in a new epithet for Yahweh: Ancient of Days.

While some Biblical passages condemn violence and long for peace, others tell of the wars of God's people and picture God as commanding war. Winn examines the ambiguity that is faithful to Scripture, yet contributes to the peril posed on our planet by continuing to rely on war to settle international conflicts.
