Shaye Cohen

From the Maccabees to the Mishnah (#07 in Library Of Early Christianity Series)

Shaye Cohen

$45.99

Paperback
What was the Jewish world like at Christianity's inception? Cohen explores it from the rule of the Maccabees (ca. 160 B.C.) to the ''publication'' of the Mishnah (ca. 200 A.D.). His incisive and original interpretation of many dimensions of first- and second-century Judaism goes far beyond the usual ''Jewish background of Christianity'' textbooks.

- Publisher "As interesting to read as they are informative, the volumes in this important series deal in new ways with topics and materials that illuminate the life and literature of early Christianity...Taken as a whole, the series offers various new avenues of approach to an understanding of the social, intellectual, and literary environment of the early Christian movement".---Victor Paul Furnish, University Distinguished Professor of New Testament, Southern Methodist University
