Anchor Yale Bible Commentary: I Maccabees

Anchor Yale Bible Commentary: I Maccabees

by Jonathan A. Goldstein

"The Apocryphal book of I Maccabees (Volume 41 in the acclaimed Anchor Bible Series) is an inspirational thriller." With the help of God, the aged priest Mattathias and his sons--Judas Maccabaeus, Jonathan, and Simon--dramatically lead the Jews of Judaea first to victory and then to freedom against the formidable successors of Alexander the Great. Their stru… Read more…

Anchor Yale Bible Commentary: II Chronicles

Anchor Yale Bible Commentary: II Chronicles

by Jacob M. Myers

II Chronicles (Volume 13 in the acclaimed Anchor Bible Commentary Series) is a crucial book for historians of the biblical period and for students of the Bible. Like I Chronicles, it has been both over- and undervalued. In recent years it has, certainly, suffered undue neglect. However, II Chronicles is to be neither accepted as a faithful narrative of th… Read more…

Anchor Yale Bible Commentary: II Kings

Anchor Yale Bible Commentary: II Kings

Anchor Yale Bible Commentary: II Maccabees

Anchor Yale Bible Commentary: II Maccabees

by Jonathan A. Goldstein

II Maccabees continues the chronicle of the "Time of the Troubles" (167-64 B.C.E.), begun in I Maccabees. It recounts the stories of conflict between militant Jews, led by Judas Maccabaeus, and their Hellenistic oppressors. Aside from the story of the struggle to control the temple and the holy city of Jerusalem, though, II Maccabees shares little in common … Read more…

Anchor Yale Bible Commentary: Wisdom of Ben Sira

Anchor Yale Bible Commentary: Wisdom of Ben Sira

by Alexander A. Di Lella and Patrick W. Skehan

The Wisdom of Ben Sira (Ecclesiasticus) contains the sayings of Ben Sira, arguably the last of Israel's wise men and its first scribe, whose world was defined and dominated by Greek ideas and ideals. This Hellenistic worldview challenged the adequacy of the religion passed down to Palestinian Jews of the second century B.C.E. by their ancestors. Ben Sira's t… Read more…
