Anchor: Leviticus 23-27 (#03B in Anchor Bible Commentaries Series)

Jacob Milgrom

$69.99

Hardback
Leviticus was to early Israel what the Constitution was to the fledgeling United States. In Leviticus 23-27 world-class Bible scholar and rabbi Jacob Milgrom shows us what the law means and how it defines those who adhere to it.

- Publisher Palau tackles the greatest question of our time-whether we can live without God.

- Publisher Jacob Milgrom, a rabbi and Bible scholar, has devoted the bulk of his career to examining the laws of the Torah. His incisive commentary on Leviticus, which began with Leviticus 1-16, continues in this last volume of three. It provides an authoritative and comprehensive explanation of ethical values concealed in Israel's rituals. Although at first glance Leviticus seems far removed from the modern-day world, Milgrom's thoughtful and provocative comments and notes reveal its enduring relevance to contemporary society. Leviticus 23-27 brings us to the climactic end of the book and its revolutionary innovations, among which are the evolution of the festival calendar with its emphasis on folk traditions, and the jubilee, the priestly answer to the socio-economic problems of their time. With English translations that convey the nuance and power of the original Hebrew, this trilogy will take its place alongside the best of the Anchor Bible Commentaries. From the Hardcover edition.
