FROM THE MACCABEES TO THE MISHNAH PDF

John Kight Shaye J. It is here that Cohen carefully guides readers through a variegated landscape of transition, both before and after the rise of Christianity. However, Cohen does far more here than provide a mere historical survey of Judaism and its development into the rabbinic period. Rather, Cohen seeks to usher readers into the very heart of the social, cultural, and religious environment of Judaism as it was shaped and molded by the world and events around it.

John Kight Shaye J. It is here that Cohen carefully guides readers through a variegated landscape of transition, both before and after the rise of Christianity.

However, Cohen does far more here than provide a mere historical survey of Judaism and its development into the rabbinic period. Rather, Cohen seeks to usher readers into the very heart of the social, cultural, and religious environment of Judaism as it was shaped and molded by the world and events around it.

Those familiar with the two previous editions of From the Maccabees to the Mishnah should welcome the revisions made to this third edition.

The strength of this volume are many, but the weaknesses are equally as numerous. For many readers, the approach to the topic brought by Cohen will be a breath of fresh air. He is lucid and judicious in his treatment of the period and its development, and the scope of material covered therein is well-organized, easily understandable, and presented with clarity.

However, Cohen writes from a predominantly liberal Jewish perspective and his presuppositions can be seen on almost every page—especially the material on canonization and its implications. Others will find it to be rubbish. I am of the former persuasion. But, like any book, this was only realized after understanding and evaluating the presuppositions therein. If you are looking for an informative guide into the social, cultural, and religious development of the Judaism underlying the New Testament, From the Maccabees to the Mishnah by Shaye J.

Cohen is indispensable. Read it closely and carefully, and interact with it rigorously. It comes highly recommended! I received a review copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. Share This:.

Review: From the Maccabees to the Mishnah

Nasida This section was interesting, good reference material, frlm I had reaction to only a few portions. It was also interesting that he treated Scripture study as a part of prayer. It is scholarly but written for even the layman to understand. Ah, but some did. These are helpful pointers for further study!
