"Oil and Water" is set nearly a century after the building of Jerusalem's Second Temple. Alexander the Great, the Greek conqueror, is dead and his empire is split; its Middle Eastern... More > division contested by the Ptolemies of Egypt and the Syrian Seleucids. Tens of thousands of Jews, taken to Egypt as slaves some decades before, have only recently been freed. Some of these Jews, though deeply changed by their difficult experiences, sought to return to a homeland many of them had never seen...a homeland which might not even want them back. "Oil and Water," an historical novel, explores ancient political movements and fundamental struggles over power, glory and, for some, over truth. The book also probes one young man's very personal struggle to choose between idealism and assimilation. Between his great thirst to drink from the waters of the Torah and the pain and loneliness of cultural alienation.< Less

Jewish Magdala ‘The Pompeii of Galilee’ By Michael A Moss
Paperback: $9.45
Prints in 3-5 business days

More > and after the Destruction of the Second Temple in Jerusalem in 70 CE.

God is Judge By paul wyns
eBook (PDF): $3.00
This commentary presents an inter-textual reading of Daniel that places the Temple and eschatological Atonement at the center of the book's theology and traces the influence of Daniel’s... More > theology in the NT. A failure of exilic prophetic interpretation inspired a failed attempt to restore the First Temple under Cyrus. Daniel ignores the reign of Cyrus and proceeds directly to the conquest of Babylon by Darius Hystaspis (Darius the Mede). Daniel’s history is subordinated to his theology. The initial setting of Babylonian First Temple destruction and Persian era restoration is supplemented by Antiochene desecration and Maccabean rededication of the Second Temple resulting in an already/not yet realization (apocalyptic moment). Daniel’s enigmatic numerical time periods are not Maccabean era inventions or ex eventu prophecy as they represent supra-historical realities based on intervals between the destruction of the Temple on the ninth of Ab and prominent Jewish Feasts in the lunar Jewish Festal Calendar.< Less

Here we look at the thoughts of the highly respected and highly controversial Rabbi Jacob Emden. Rabbi Emden, Yabetz is as orthodox a Rabbi as there ever was. He loved truth and vigorously opposed... More > what he understood as error among his own people. When he did his study of the New Testament the results were shocking, and yet he risked his life to publish the fact that the teaching of Paul was exactly in line with ancient Jewish halakha. In his Megilat Sefer Rabbi Emden explained the threats to his life and livelihood which came from the publication of his short response to the position of the New Testament on the Torah.In the second paper we enter another highly controversial issue. Does the New Testament apply the Tetragrammaton, as Philo of Alexandria called the Divine name Yahuah [Yehovah, Yahweh], to the resurrected and ascended Jesus of Nazareth. This idea was peer reviewed in the paper "Reflections on the Use of the name Yahuwah[Yahweh] or Iao in Early Christian communities".< Less
