Temple and Worship in Biblical Israel (Journal For The Study Of The Old Testament Supplement Series)
This major work on the Temple and worship in biblical Israel contains 23 essays by an impressive array of Oxford, UK and international scholars. It ranges widely from the ancient Near Eastern and archaeological background, through the Old Testament and Late Second Temple Judaism, as far as the New Testament. Special attention is paid to such subjects as the ideology of temples and the evidence for high places in Isreal and the Canaanite world, the architecture and symbolism of Solomon's Temple, the light shed on Temple worship by the Psalms, the role and fate of the Ark of the Covenant, and attitudes to the Temple in the Septuagint, Apocrypha and Pseudepigrapha, the Dead Sea Scrolls, first century Judaism, and the New Testament.
