Free book TThe Boundaries of Jewishness in the Southern Levant 200 BCE–132 CE. This book was released on 2022-05-23 with total page 334 pages. Book excerpt: Recent research has considered how changing imperial contexts influence conceptions of Jewishness among ruling elites (esp. Eckhardt, Ethnos und Herrschaft, 2013). This study integrates other, often marginal, conceptions with elite perspectives. It uses the ethnic boundary making model, an empirically based sociological model, to link macro-level characteristics of the social field with individual agency in ethnic construction. It uses a wide range of written sources as evidence for constructions of Jewishness and relates these to a local-specific understanding of demographic and institutional characteristics, informed by material culture. The result is a diachronic study of how institutional changes under Seleucid, Hasmonean, and Early Roman rule influenced the ways that members of the ruling elite, retainer class, and marginalized groups presented their preferred visions of Jewishness. These sometimes-competing visions advance different strategies to maintain, rework, or blur the boundaries between Jews and others. The study provides the next step toward a thick description of Jewishness in antiquity by introducing needed systematization for relating written sources from different social strata with their contexts.

This volume is divided into six core sections: Genocide in Antiquity and Holy Wars The Genocide of Indigenous Peoples Religion and the State The Role of Religion during Genocide Post Genocide Considerations Memory Culture Within these sections central issues, historical events, debates, and problems are examined, including the Crusades; Jihad and ISIS, colonialism, the Holocaust, desecration of ritual objects, politics of religion, Shinto nationalism, attacks on Rohingya Muslims; the Genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda, responses to genocide; gender-based atrocities, ritualcide in Cambodia, burial sites and mass graves, transitional justice, forgiveness, documenting genocide, survivor memory narratives, post-conflict healing and memorialization.

Book excerpt: Surprisingly, there has never been a comprehensive exegetical study in English of Saint Paul's view of the second coming, or Parousia, of Christ. In this methodical analysis, Joseph Plevnik brings nearly three decades of research to bear on the question of Paul's understanding of this most central tenet of the whole Christ event. With careful attention to the concepts and terms underlying the notion of the Lord's coming, Plevnik examines the key Pauline texts, such as 1 Thess 5:1-11 and 1 Cor 15:23-28. Plevnik then constructs a viable theological interpretation of the great Christian hope, including the language of hope, Christ's parousia and judgment, conflict at Christ's return, the place of the church, and Paul's apocalyptic theology. This volume will be indispensable for any study of Pauline theology, the Parousia, the theology of hope, and apocalypticism. "It is my hope that the book will be not only a scholarly contribution on the topic but also of some personal value to the reader and to the preacher. It may provide a timely reading at the close of the second millennium. The times and seasons, however, are not for us to determine, but a proper preparedness for the Lord's coming is the message of the New Testament, and of Paul in particular. If the Lord's coming may no longer be said to be near, it can still be desired. Marana tha." --Preface

Book excerpt: Psalms Code II studies more years and reveals more codes hidden in the 3,000 year old scripture. The second book of the Psalms Code series, Psalms Code II is sub-titled "The Jesus Cycle". The hidden 1,900 year long incarnation cycle of Jesus is revealed to the public for the first time in human history!Jesus, "Immanuel" ["The Lord is with us"] is a man who died not! He had 22 lives in his pocket from the day he was born to Virgin Mary, and till the end of his 19 century-long incarnation cycle in year 1919 AD.He lived 22 separate lives in it. He started his journey as Jesus of Nazareth. In his sixth incarnation lived within the sixth century, he made himself known as Prophet Mohammed who established and founded Islam. In his 11th and middle [out of a total of 22] incarnation he was Yusuf Khas Hajib, the scribe or the author of Kutadgu Bilig. In his 19th incarnation, the world knew him with the name Rasputin. In his 20th incarnation, he was Lenin [the founder of Communism], in his 21st, we saw him as Royal Raymond Rife [the man who cured cancer] and finally, in his 22nd and final incarnation, he was Mustafa Kemal Ataturk [the Founder of the Turkish Republic].Parallel to the Christian Faith, Jesus was the LORD but only during his first and last incarnations -lives! When the Jews crucified Jesus on the cross 1,900 years ago, they were not aware of the fact that they were attempting to kill the LORD Himself! The LORD, without a doubt, is invincible as reported in various verses of the Bible. However, the first and the last incarnations of Jesus belonged to him! The reason why the Catholic Church [Vatican] and Islam distance themselves from the Jews is based on this simple fact: The Jews attempted to kill the LORD of Hosts! Their "Ultimate Sin" caused them a most fiery vengeance ever after!Both the Bible and the Koran report the same fact: The LORD is "The First" and "The Last", Alpha and Omega. The first and the last incarnations of Jesus were reserved for the LORD Himself! The LORD personally "lived" the first and the last incarnations of Jesus; in our case, He was Jesus Christ, the man who could heal the blind and raise the dead! In his 22nd incarnation, He was Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, the "Father Turk" or the "Father of the Turks" during the last 19 years of his life.[Those who are prejudiced against Rasputin, Lenin or Ataturk should not come to conclusions before considering the evidence presented in the book.]A brand new 1,900 Jesus Cycle will start in year 2019 AD. As the "First" and the "Last", the LORD will live the very first life of the total 24 new lives due for Jesus once again.Just nine years from now, mankind will have a "twice in a 1,900 years" chance to witness the LORD manifested in human form! Whether He will reveal Himself as a prophet, as a national hero, a political leader is to be but awaited... Without a shadow of a doubt, the LORD is nigh... Very nigh, indeed.

This book was released on 2021-06-17 with total page 240 pages. Book excerpt: Christopher Armitage considers previous theological perception of 1 John as a text advocating that God abhors violence, contrasted with biblical scholarship analysis that focuses upon the text's birth from hostile theological conflict between 'insiders' and 'outsiders', with immensely hostile rhetoric directed towards 'antichrists' and those who have left the community. Armitage argues that a peace-oriented reading of 1 John is still viable, but questions if the commandment that the community loves each other is intended to include their opponents, and whether the text can be of hermeneutic use to advocate non-violence and love of one's neighbour. This book examines five key words from 1 John, hilasmos, sfazo, anthropoktonos, agape and adelphos, looking at their background and use in the Old Testament in both Hebrew and the LXX, arguing that these central themes presuppose a God whose engagement with the world is not assuaging divine anger, nor ferocious defence of truth at the expense of love, but rather peace and avoidance of hatred that inevitably leads to violence and death. Armitage concludes that a peacemaking hermeneutic is not only viable, but integral to reading the epistle.
