Dereck Daschke

This psychoanalytic study reads Jewish apocalypses as texts of mourning for the destruction of Jerusalem, arguing that the seers' experiences of traumatic loss, then visions of healing and recovery, all work to achieve the ‘apocalyptic cure’ for ancient Jewish society.

by Aliou Cisse Niang

Seeing Paul as “sociopostcolonial hermeneut” Niang reads Gal 2:11-15 and 3:26-29 as bringing about alternative communities among the colonized Galatians through a countercolonial story of faith that reshapes them into free children of God; a new creation in Christ.

Christopher A. Beetham

The introduction of literary intertextuality into biblical studies has led to both discovery and dilemma. This study proposes new definitions of ‘allusion’ and ‘echo’ and a methodology on how to detect them, using the neglected letter of Colossians as a test case.

Chad Hartsock

Reading Luke-Acts through the lens of Greco-Roman physiognomics, this is a study of the use of physical descriptions in characterization in the biblical texts. Specifically, this work studies blindness as characterization and, ultimately, as an interpretive guide to Luke-Acts.

Recognizing the Stranger is the first monographic study of recognition type-scenes and motifs (anagnōrisis) in the Gospel of John. The book shows how the Gospel employs and transforms contemporary genre conventions in its portrait of Jesus as the divine stranger.

Douglas C. Estes

By redefining narrative temporality in light of modern physics, this book advances a unique and innovative approach to the deep-seated temporalities within the Gospel of John—and challenges the implicit assumptions of textual brokenness that run throughout Johannine scholarship.

Utilising parallels from the Apocalypse of Adam and elsewhere, this book re-examines Mt.'s infancy narratives in the light of the apocalyptic and mythological background to the virgin birth. Jesus is shown as the fulfilment of universalistic hopes though not as Son of God. Mt.'s special...
