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!
