Description & Features+

Introduction to Second Temple Judaism, Lester L. Grabbe Paperback. This introduction by a leader in the field, provides the perfect guide to the Second Temple Period, its history, literature, and religious setting.

Lester Grabbe magisterially guides the reader through the period providing a careful overview of the most studied sources, the history surrounding them and the various currents within Judaism at the time.

Students will learn about religious beliefs, the wisdom tradition, Scribes, Pharisees, Sadducees, Essenes, revolutionary movements, apocalypticism, the priestly tradition, historical sources, Messianism, Zealots and Maccabees.

Based on Grabbe's earlier work An Introduction to First Century Judaism, this revised and expanded new edition has been restructured to make it more accessible to students. Bibliographies and reading lists have been updated, and an entirely new introductory section giving an overview of the period, and taking into account recent scholarship has been added.

'This compact introduction is perfect for enjoyable read.'-Religious Studies Review

'Lester Grabbe has provided a valuable introduction to Judaism in the last century BCE and the first century CE, his fresh approach is likely to make this book particularly useful.'-Michael Knibb, Professor Emeritus Of Old Testament Studies, King's College, London
