Summary
"Did authors of Second Temple texts concern themselves with 'salvation'? If so, on what terms? What does one need 'salvation' from? Are the parameters of who is included in or excluded from 'salvation' defined? The present volume is a collection of essays analysing the topic of 'soteriology' in a select corpus of Jewish texts dating from the Second Temple Period. Working from a sound methodological basis the contributors assess the theme in different books, acknowledging that the approaches in each text are different, depending on issues of genre and provenance. This allows an acute comparison of how this topic is present across a myriad of Second Temple Jewish texts. Throughout the course of the work the notion of 'soteriology' is very broadly conceived. Whilst acknowledging the obviously Christian connotation of the term 'soteriology', the volume similarly acknowledges the usefulness of the term as an heuristic category for careful analysis."--Back cover
