Journal of Jewish Studies 69:2 (2018)

Duncan Cameron, "Towards a re-dating of Pompey’s conquest of Jerusalem," 225-247
The date of Pompey’s conquest of Jerusalem is examined in light of the accounts of Josephus, contemporary hints found in Cicero, and the narratives of other ancient chroniclers. It is established that word of Pompey’s victory in the East was received in Rome during the first half of 63 BCE and that the conclusion of the siege necessarily preceded this. Evidence for a fall victory is presented, which strongly suggests that Pompey’s siege ended in 64 BCE. Pompey’s organization of the eastern provinces is considered as further evidence that his time in Syria was briefer than is typically maintained.

Matthew C. Pawlak, "A desperate romantic gesture: sexuality and slavery in ‘Joseph and Aseneth’," 248-255
Joseph and Aseneth contains two scenes in which its protagonist, Aseneth, prays that God would allow her to become Joseph’s slave, and another instance where she appears to adopt this role by washing his feet (see 6.8; 13.15; 20.1–4). Recent scholarship has done much to demonstrate the utility of exploring Joseph and Aseneth in light of other ancient novels. However, analyses of Aseneth’s desire for servitude have not typically made use of this larger corpus, but have instead focused primarily on the gendered power dynamics operative in the text. This study seeks to understand Aseneth’s petitions for servitude in conversation with numerous parallels ranging across the extant body of ancient novels. These parallels suggest that Aseneth’s desire to become a slave is a stock expression of erotic longing, a desperate romantic gesture typical of characters, across diverse gender relationships, who find a major obstacle between themselves and their beloved. 

Pieter W. van der Horst, "Philosabbatius, a forgotten early Jewish philosopher," 256-261
In his Panarion (51.8.1), the fourth-century bishop Epiphanius mentions three ‘Greek philosophers’ who criticized the New Testament, namely Porphyry, Celsus and Philosabbatius. The last he also calls ‘a snake of Jewish stock’. Apparently this Philosabbatius was a Jew who wrote philosophical works in Greek, like Philo. His writings are lost, but Epiphanius states that Philosabbatius, like Celsus and Porphyry, heavily criticized the Gospels. His relationship with Celsus’ Jew (see Origen, Contra Celsum, books 1 and 2) is examined here. This overlooked Jewish philosopher deserves a place in works on the history of ancient Judaism.

Ευάγγελος Θεοδώρου (1921-2018)

Εκοιμήθη ο ομότιμος καθηγητής των Θεολογικών Σχολών Θεσσαλονίκης και Αθηνών Ευάγγελος Θεοδώρου. Ο καθηγητής Θεοδώρου γεννήθηκε στο Αϊδίνιο το 1921, σπούδασε Θεολογία στην Θεολογική Αθηνών (1938-1943) και συνέχισε με μεταπτυχιακές σπουδές στο Marburg (1952-1953). Το 1954 αναγορεύτηκε διδάκτορας στη Θεολογική Σχολή Αθηνών και το 1959 εξελέγη υφηγητής στην ίδια Σχολή στην έδρα της Πρακτικής Θεολογίας. Δίδαξε ως τακτικός καθηγητής της Ομιλητικής και της Λειτουργικής στην Θεολογική Σχολή Θεσσαλονίκης (1961-1968) και στη συνέχεια ως τακτικός καθηγητής της Πρακτικής Θεολογίας στην Θεολογική Αθηνών (1969-1988). Δίδαξε σε διάφορα φροντιστήρια και σχολές και διετέλεσε κοσμήτορας των Θεολογικών Σχολών Θεσσαλονίκης και Αθηνών, αντιπρύτανης και πρύτανης του Πανεπιστημίου Αθηνών. Υπήρξε διευθυντής των περιοδικών Θεολογία, Εκκλησία και Εφημέριος. Ως η μεγαλύτερη συμβολή του θεωρείται το πρωτοπόρο και τολμηρό έργο του για την επανεργοποίηση του θεσμού των διακονισσών στην Ορθόδοξη Εκκλησία, ενός θεσμού, ο οποίος ποτέ δεν καταργήθηκε, αλλά παραμένει ανενεργός εδώ και αιώνες. Όσοι τον γνωρίσαμε θυμόμαστε το πάθος και το νεανικό ενθουσιασμό με τον οποίο μιλούσε για το θέμα ακόμη και στα βαθιά γεράματά του. Ας είναι αιωνία η μνήμη του!

Jacob T. Igba & Henk G. Stoker, "Salvation in Acts 16: Meaning and missional implication derived from the sociohistorical method"

Damnatio memoriae: μνήμη και λήθη / Damnatio memoriae: remembering and forgetting

Η Francesca Tronchin δημοσιεύει ένα πολύ κατατοπιστικό άρθρο για τον τρόπο που εφαρμοζόταν η damnatio memoriae στον αρχαίο κόσμο:

[Α.Τ.: Θα πρέπει να σημειώσω, ωστόσο, ότι η damnatio memoriae στον αρχαίο κόσμο δε σημαίνει υποχρεωτικά την εξαφάνιση της μνήμης κάποιου αλλά μάλλον την αμαύρωσή της. Με άλλα λόγια, σκοπός ήταν κατά κάποιον τρόπο η λήθη διά της μνήμης. Αυτό εξηγεί γιατί στις περισσότερες περιπτώσεις δεν γίνεται κάποια προσπάθεια επεξεργασίας των μνημείων ώστε να μην υπάρχουν τα ίχνη του προηγούμενου προσώπου ή της προσπάθειας εξαφάνισής τους. Έτσι όσοι τα βλέπουν είναι σε θέση να διαπιστώσουν την παρέμβαση και να θυμηθούν γιατί αυτή έγινε και ποιος ήταν το θύμα της. Η damnatio memoriae έχει ιδιαίτερη κοινωνική σημασία και συνδέεται με την κατασκευή της κοινής ταυτότητας των μελών της αρχαίας κοινωνίας (σε τοπικό επίπεδο ή στο επίπεδο της αυτοκρατορίας). Επομένως, δεν είναι απόλυτα ακριβές να αντιμετωπίζεται ως βαρβαρότητα. Όπως θα ήταν επίσης ιστορικός αναχρονισμός να συγκριθούν οι πρακτικές του ρωμαϊκού κόσμου με εκείνες σε νεότερα απολυταρχικά καθεστώτα.]

Ένας εντυπωσιακός τάφος από την αρχαία Καπιτωλιάδα / An impressive tomb from ancient Capitolias

Mία εντυπωσιακή ανακάλυψη από την αρχαία Καπιτωλιάδα (στο σημερινό χωριό Beit Ras) κάνει το γύρο του διαδικτύου αυτές τις μέρες. Πρόκειται για έναν τάφο της ρωμαϊκής περιόδου (τα παλαιότερα δημοσιεύματα τον τοποθετούν στην Ύστερη Αρχαιότητα ή πρώιμη Βυζαντινή περίοδο, τα νεότερα κάνουν λόγο για το τέλος του 1ου - αρχές του 2ου αι. μ.Χ.), ο οποίος βρέθηκε κατά την κατασκευή του αποχετευτικού συστήματος ενός σχολείου στην περιοχή. Ο τάφος, 52 τ.μ., είναι δίχωρος, σε πολύ καλή κατάσταση, αν και λεηλατήθηκε κατά την αρχαιότητα. Στο ένα από τα δύο δωμάτια βρέθηκε σαρκοφάγος από βασάλτη με διακόσμηση δυο κεφαλών λεόντων. 
http://www.thehistoryblog.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/12/Jordan-fresco-3.jpgΤο εντυπωσιακό όμως αυτού του τάφου είναι οι πολύχρωμες τοιχογραφίες του με παραστάσεις από την αγροτική ζωή, εικόνες από την ανοικοδόμηση κτιρίων, θυσιαστικό γεύμα με συνδαιτυμόνες διάφορες θεότητες. Περισσότερες από 260 μορφές απεικονίζονται στους τοίχους αυτού του κτίσματος. Σύμφωνα με τις εκτιμήσεις των αρχαιολόγων οι παραστάσεις καταγράφουν διαφορετικές φάσεις της ίδρυσης της αρχαίας Καπιτωλιάδος (με τελική σκηνή τη θυσία στους πολιούχους θεούς), η οποία ήταν αφιερωμένη στον Jupiter Capitolinus. Σύμφωνα με την εκτίμηση του Pierre-Louis Gatier (History and Sources of the Ancient World lab, Lyon, Γαλλία) ίσως ο νεκρός που φιλοξενείται σε αυτόν τον τάφο να συνδέεται με την ίδρυση της πόλης ή είναι ο ιδρυτής της. Αυτό φυσικά αναμένεται να αποδειχθεί από επιπλέον ευρήματα που οι αρχαιολόγοι ελπίζουν να βρουν στο μέλλον.
Ένα ιδιαίτερα ενδιαφέρον στοιχείο είναι οι επιγραφές που συνοδεύουν τις διάφορες παραστάσεις κι οι οποίες αποτυπώνουν στιγμές της συζήτησης μεταξύ των αναπαριστώμενων μορφών. Γραμμένες με ελληνικούς χαρακτήρες οι φράσεις είναι στα αραμαϊκά και δίνουν σημαντικές πληροφορίες για την πολιτισμική ατμόσφαιρα στην περιοχή της Δεκαπόλεως κατά τα τ. 1ου αι., την γλωσσική και την εθνική ταυτότητα των κατοίκων της:

Théologiques 24:2 (2016)

Alain Gignac, "Le triangle « Paul — Philémon — Onésime » du billet à Philémon : Lorsque la petitesse, l’amitié et l’utilité construisent une identité discursive," 17-40 
The Epistle to Philemon is examined here at the junction of social criticism and discursive analysis, in order to reflect upon the identity which it puts forward. Whether in the rigid and violent sociological context of the 1st century regarding slavery, or, mutatis mutandis, in the context of the 21st century regarding neoliberalism, this brief epistle is a discourse that both expresses and seeks to go beyond the sociological dichotomy between fraternal relationships in Christ and the hierarchical relationships of submission between persons—a kind of ethical schizophrenia that is not peculiar to early Christianity alone. The social constructs master/slave (Philemon and Onesimus) and superior/client (Paul and Philemon) do not coincide with the structure of the communal fellowship, which rather values meekness and service, and aspires to encourage friendship to the point of fraternal love, thus redefining the true usefulness of persons.

Bernard Duhaime and Camille Labadie, "Les voyages des manuscrits de la mer Morte : Réflexions sur la restitution des biens culturels et le droit international," 183-218 
Since the discovery of the first rolls in 1947, the Dead Sea Scrolls have been the subject of many disputes not only theological and archaeological, but also cultural, political and legal. Currently owned by Israel for the most part, these Manuscripts are now at the heart of competing claims insofar as both Israel, Jordan and the Palestinian Authority claim ownership. In this perspective, the present article aims not only at exploring the legal issues raised by the question of the ownership of the Dead Sea Scrolls, more specifically with regard to the norms of international law, but also at exploring the way in which issues relating to cultural and religious heritage retain a highly political dimension due to the involvement of States in their protection, and to the concept of territory they imply.

Peter W. Flint, "Six Viable Readings from Isaiah 1–39 in the Great Isaiah Scroll (1QIsaa)," 219-239 
In order to illustrate the contribution of the Great Isaiah Scroll from Qumran (1QIsaa) to textual criticism, this paper presents six viable readings for Isaiah 1–39, i.e. variants that most likely represent the original Hebrew text. In assessing the cases of Isaiah 3 : 24 ; 9 : 16 [English 9 : 17] ; 18 : 7 ; 19 : 18 ; 21 : 8 ; 23 : 10, the author takes into account the textual character of the manuscript, the scribal habits of the copyist, the work of scholars and commentaries on the Book of Isaiah, recent translations of Isaiah, as well as the context and the overall sense of the passage. In all six instances — with the possible exception of Isa 19 : 18 — the reading in 1QIsaa is found to be compelling. These readings and similar ones should therefore be included as part of the main text of Isaiah (not the apparatus) in future editions of the Hebrew Bible, and part of the main text of Isaiah in future translations (not the footnotes).

Perspectives in Religious Studies 45:2 (2018)

M. Eugene Boring, "'Jesus’ Call to Decision Implies an Ecclesiology'—The Church in the Theology of the Apocalypse," 113-126
This essay explores Revelation's understanding of the church from three perspectives: (1) laterally—the church in its cultural setting; (2) chronologically—the church in its historical setting; (3) vertically—the church in its transcendent setting. Much like the church of twenty-first century America, the church of Revelation carried on its mission as part of a fragmented church in a pluralistic world. In this situation, it both looked back to its origins and history, and forward to future eschatological vindication. It frames its identity with insight drawn from Scripture, as interpreted in the previous generation of the church's life. Revelation calls the church to understand itself as more than a human institution, for it already participates in the transcendent world of God.

Richard B. Vinson, "The Sea of Glass, the Lake of Fire, and the Topography of Heaven in Revelation," 127–138
The paper investigates Revelation’s use of “sea,” its descriptions of God’s throne room, and its use of temporary and permanent means of punishment to try to answer the question of why there is a sea in heaven, and why it disappears at the end of the narrative. The paper suggest that the sea of glass and the lake of fire, both located in the throne room, are the same entity viewed from different perspectives, and that the author expected both to be destroyed along with the old heaven and earth.

Jerry L. Sumney, "The Role (or Lack thereof) of Christ in the Eschaton in Paul and Revelation," 139–151
This essay compares how the early church saw the role of the risen Christ in the Parousia. It compares a tradition Paul quotes in 1 Cor 15:24-28 with Paul’s own view and the book of Revelation, finding differing views about Christ’s role. Paul’s corrections and qualifications of the tradition he cites indicate that he gives Christ a less active role than the tradition he cites. Similarly, the central section of Revelation envisions a less active role for Christ than either its introductory letters to the seven churches and epilogue or the tradition Paul cites. Both Revelation and Paul have a more theocentric scenario than the tradition Paul cites. It is only in the pre-formed tradition Paul cites that Christ, rather than God, is the one who subdues the powers of evil.

David L. Barr, "Jezebel and the Teachings of Balaam: Anti-Pauline Rhetoric in the Apocalypse of John," 153–165
It is impossible to ignore Paul's influence in Roman Asia Minor; yet John did. Both addressed the issues connected with eating food that had been dedicated to another god, but John seems oblivious to Paul's practices. A literary and social examination of their approaches suggests that they differed on more than menus. Their differences in both lifestyle and worldview were rooted in their attitudes toward those outside. For John, the outside world was corrupt and must be avoided. He would build a wall between his community and those outside (the dogs and idolaters—22:15). For Paul, the outside world was his mission; he sought to claim it and transform it. He would build bridges. This fundamental distrust of the world resulted in (and was supported by) John’s vision, which saw the dramatic, violent, and utter destruction of the present world and the creation of a new heaven and a new earth, a vision quite unlike Paul’s portrayal of the Parousia.

Tina Pippin, "Fire and Fury: Standing with John at the End of the World," 167–182
Prophecy belief holds to both the violent destruction of the earth in the apocalypse, and its subsequent pristine renewal in the New Jerusalem. Scholars of the Book of Revelation have traditionally read this end time text as a positive environmental statement of a God who recreates the world anew after its fiery ending. From Noah (flood) to John (fire), the earth is in the crosshairs of a wrathful deity. In this article I examine the phenomenon of biblical scholars to rehabilitate the environmental violence and destruction in Revelation. I argue that this vision of the future fuels the U.S. nuclear proliferation and policy, and is not a positive message in the context of caring for the environment in the future.

R. Scott Nash, "The Use of the Book of Revelation by Selected Muslim Apocalypticists," 183–198
The year 1987 witnessed an innovation in Muslim apocalyptic writing when Sa’id Ayyub departed from tradition and drew from Christian sources to produce his book Al-Masīh al-Dajjāl, the anti-christ. Numerous Arabic authors began to do the same. The present study examines how three such modern Muslim apocalypticists (Ayuub, Bashir Muhammad ˁAbdallah, and Safar al-Hawali) interpret the book of Revelation. These modern writers are first placed within a stream of Muslim apocalypticism that has its roots in the Qur’an. The study also follows the growth of Muslim apocalyptic in the hadith traditions and the development of apocalyptic end-time scenarios in the middle ages. The article also examines some of the cause for the modern surge in apocalyptic writings by Muslims.

Greg Carey, "What Counts as 'Resistance' in Revelation?" 199–212
Interpreters commonly identify Revelation as “resistance literature,” meaning that Revelation was written in part to undermine Roman hegemony. Yet we deploy the term “resistance” in diverse ways, often contradicting one another without acknowledging our implicit disagreements. This essay assesses diverse ways in which we might imagine resistance and proposes several ways in which Revelation does – and does not – embody resistance. The ancient Jewish and Christian literary apocalypses generally sympathize with violent revolt but hope instead for messianic and/or eschatological salvation. The term hypomonē figures prominently in Revelation, and we should read it in the context of martyria and nikē: the Lamb’s followers conquer the Beast through their persistent testimony. Revelation develops a multi-leveled critique of Rome: through diverse literary techniques it “unveils” the empire’s corruption, idolatry, cruelty, and exploitation, dehumanizing the empire and imagining its destruction. Revelation attributes true glory to the Lamb and the Bride, not the Beast and the Prostitute. Postcolonial critique enables our understanding that Revelation’s empire-critical literary devices do not escape Rome’s rhetoric of domination and destruction.

R. Alan Culpepper, "The Galilee Quest: The Historical Jesus and the Historical Galilee," 213–227
Scholarship on the historical Jesus and scholarship on Galilee in the first century have been moving on converging tracks for the last 35 to 40 years as historical Jesus studies have away moved from the criterion of dissimilarity and toward a new appreciation for the Jewishness of Jesus. At the same time, recent archaeological discoveries have changed our understanding of first-century Galilee. Mark Chancey revised our understanding of the Hellenization and Romanization of Galilee. Morton Hørning Jensen shed new light on the era of Herod Antipas in Galilee, and Mordechai Aviam documented a more nuanced view of life in the towns and villages of Galilee. The result is that the portraits of the historical Jesus advanced by John Dominic Crossan, Richard Horsley, and others must now be revised. After surveying current scholarship on first-century Galilee, this essay concludes with summaries of what seems to be settled, what is trending, and what is still open to debate.
