A Handbook on Job

19.00US$
SKU: 1175JB

The Book of Job is a story told in the form of a poem. It begins with a prose introduction describing Job as a good man who is faithful to God, wealthy, and concerned for the right relation between God and his family. In a meeting between God and Satan, God permits Satan to test Job's loyalty. These tests result in the destruction of Job's family and wealth. He is reduced to sitting in agony on a pile of ashes, where three friends find him when they arrive to bring him comfort. In his despair Job regrets that he was born and curses his origins.

A Handbook on Esther

10.00US$
SKU: 1169ES

The Book of Esther is often called a “historical novel,” but interpreters differ in whether they emphasize the word “historical” or the word “novel.” Emphasis throughout the book is placed on a series of events that are presented within a historical framework. Although historians may question the historicity of the events in the Book of Esther, it is clear that the author uses the form of a historical account to tell the story of Esther. In the Hebrew version the reasons behind the actions of the characters are not developed any more than the characters themselves.

A Handbook on Ezra and Nehemiah

15.00US$
SKU: 1159EN

From a historical point of view Ezra-Nehemiah covers a period of approximately 140 years, from the time when Cyrus became emperor of Babylonia (539 B.C.) to the time of the reforms of Nehemiah during his second term as governor of Judah. The book of Ezra narrates the return of Jewish exiles from Babylonia to Judah, the reestablishment of sacrifices, the rebuilding of the Temple, and the celebration of the Passover. This is followed by the appointment of Ezra by Artaxerxes to restore the Law of Moses as the law of Judah and to regulate the affairs of the Temple.

A Handbook on 1 - 2 Kings [2 Vols]

33.00US$
SKU: 1124KG

The ancient Greek version (called the Septuagint) divided the books that we know as 1-2 Samuel and 1-2 Kings into four parts under the title “Books of Kingdoms.” They were called 1, 2, 3 and 4 Kingdoms. Jerome, the translator of the Latin Vulgate, changed the titles to 1, 2, 3 and 4 Kings. The Hebrew tradition, on the other hand, continued to preserve the two books of 1-2 Kings as one book. Finally, however, under the influence of the Greek tradition, the printed Hebrew Bomberg Bible of A.D. 1517 divided the book of Kings into two books.

A Handbook on Ruth

10.00US$
SKU: 1114RU

The Book of Ruth has consistently been one of the most popular stories of the Old Testament. It is often the first book translated into so-called ``new languages,'' not only because the content of the story proves to be so interesting, but because the narrative develops in a relatively clear and easy manner. Furthermore, the Hebrew is not particularly difficult, and there are not many textual complications.

A Handbook on Joshua

10.00US$
SKU: 1091JO

Each book in the Bible was written with certain religious goals in mind, and the book of Joshua is no exception. This is in part what makes these books sacred literature. Definite religious themes have in fact determined not only the content and structure of Joshua but also its place in the Hebrew Old Testament. We shall first consider the religious significance of the place which it occupies in the Hebrew Old Testament.

A Handbook on Deuteronomy

15.00US$
SKU: 1046DT

Deuteronomy is the fifth book in the Bible, the last of the five “Books of Moses,” as they are called. These books are also known as the Pentateuch (“five scrolls”). The name comes from the title of the book in the Septuagint, which is the Greek translation of the Hebrew Old Testament. The Greek word, which means “second law,” appears in 17.18 as the translation of the Hebrew “copy of this law” (Greek Deuteronomion). The Hebrew title, which is simply “Words,” comes from the opening words of the book, “These are the words.”

A Handbook on the Gospel of Mark

13.00US$
SKU: OT01565MK

The Greek text has only 'according to Mark', but it has been traditional in most translations to expand this title to 'The Good News according to Mark' or 'The Gospel according to Mark' (or 'Saint Mark'). In some publications designed especially for distribution to people who are not already familiar with the Scriptures, and to whom 'the Good News according to Mark' might mean little or nothing, there has been a tendency to employ certain supplementary titles which might be more attractive to the eye and to some extent indicative of the theme of the book.

A Handbook on Exodus

22.00US$
SKU: 1015EX

The book of Exodus has been called ‘‘the Gospel of the Old Testament,’’ for it records God’s grace as well as God’s law. It tells the good news of how God miraculously delivered the descendants of Jacob from slavery in Egypt and set them on a journey to the Promised Land. It also reports how the people responded to this divine act as they received the Ten Commandments and were drawn into a covenant relationship with the God of their ancestors. Here is the story of the historic event on which the very faith of Israel was based.
