Mujeres de la Biblia Judía

- Sale price
A comprehensive work, rigorously documented, on the role of the woman in ancient Judaism as reflected in the books of the Hebrew canon (the Mithra), as well as the Deutero-canonical books written during the two or three centuries before Christ that were included in the Septuagint, the LXX Bible.
For that reason, this book is not a collection of biographies of women concluding with moral or spiritual lessons. Rather, this book attempts to analyze the image, the personality, the conduct and the behavior of each of the women as reflected in the thoughts of the writers of the ancient Scriptures and rabbinic theology. The author attempts to discern the reasoning behind the ways that women are represented, the motives behind the details that are provided regarding each one, and the symbolic and subliminal message that is being communicated. The work is divided into three parts:
Women of memory: Women who lived before the Babylonian exile.
Women in crisis: The Judean context. Women living in pre-exilic, exilic, and post-exilic times, in the fifth and sixth centuries before Christ.
Women as symbols: The great women of Judaism. Analysis of women as historical and symbolic figures.
You may discover that a careful review of the entire Bible with a special focus on women, as provided in this book, will give you a better understanding and perspective on the role of women, not only living in Biblical Judea, but also throughout the history of humanity and into the future.
This book includes indexes by name and by subject that enhance its value as a useful and authoritative Biblical Dictionary on Women, as well as a complete bibliography and an extensive system of footnotes and explanatory materials.
This is one of the best academic works and the most current and most extensive on the subject, and one that ought to be required reading at any theological seminary or high-level university class.Read Less
