DESCRIPTION
David Flusser was an incredibly prolific scholar of ancient Judaism, and his contributions to Dead Sea Scrolls research and apocalyptic literature are inestimable. This English edition makes more of Flusser's insightful work available to a wider audience than ever before.

This second volume in Judaism of the Second Temple Period considers why the Book of Daniel was the only apocalyptic work incorporated in the biblical canon. It further addresses the fact that while it is the only apocalyptic book composed before the destruction of the Second Temple, it nonetheless describes events subsequent to the revelation at Sinai.
REVIEWS
Joseph A. Fitzmyer, S.J.
Catholic University of America
"This second volume of Flusser's essays on Judaism of the Second Temple period is devoted to Jewish sages, their Wisdom literature, and the impact that they both have made on contemporary Judaism and on early Christianity. Jewish and Christian students of the Bible will profit from the English translation of these interesting and learned essays; general readers, too, will find them instructive and informative."
David Bivin
"Only a small percentage of Flusser's articles were authored in English. The scope and importance of Flusser's research are so great that it is unthinkable that his Hebrew and German writings should remain untranslated into English. Flusser's contributions to the study of Jewish literature of the Second Temple period, including Jewish-Hellenistic literature, apocryphal works, rabbinic literature, and the New Testament, are inestimable."
Interpretation
"This collection of twenty-six essays has hitherto been unavailable in English translation and widely scattered in various publications. The late David Flusser (1917–2000), a leading Jewish authority on the NT and Early Christianity and a prolific scholar of ancient Judaism, was a professor at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. This second volume of his essays on Judaism of the Second Temple Period is devoted to Jewish sages, their Wisdom literature, and the impact that both have made on contemporary Judaism and early Christianity."
