The Messiah: In early Judaism and Christianity

Research output: Book/ReportAnthology (editor)


The Messiah neatly surveys currents of messianic thought in the formative centuries of Judaism and Christianity, providing precision in thinking about "messianic" images and tradition. Leading scholars offer succinct and illuminating essays on the traditions that decisively shaped Jewish and Christian belief in a messiah. Includes two maps, a timeline of persons, events, and literature, and a glossary of terms.
