Abstract:

"Internationally renowned New Testament scholar Harold Attridge illuminates key aspects of John and Hebrews, two of the most theologically compelling and complex New Testament books. Attridge explores the literary and cultural traditions at work in the text and its imaginative rhetoric, which aims to deepen faith in Christ by giving new meaning to his death and exaltation. He situates his literary analysis within the context of the history of religion and culture in the first century, with careful attention to both Jewish and Greco-Roman worlds. Several essays focus on gnostic traditions. Originally published by Mohr Siebeck in the Wissenschaftliche Untersuchungen zum Neuen Testament series, this work is now available as an affordable North American paperback." -- Publisher description.
