Christians in Caesar's Household: The Emperors' Slaves in the Makings of Christianity
In this volume, Michael Flexsenhar III advances the argument that imperial slaves and freedpersons in the Roman Empire were essential to early Christians' self-conception as a distinct people in the Mediterranean and played a multifaceted role in the making of early Christianity. Scholarship in early Christianity has for centuries viewed Roman emperors' slaves and freedmen as responsible for ushering Christianity onto the world stage, traditionally using Paul's allusion to the saints from Caesar's household in Philippians 4:22 as a core literary lens. Merging textual and material evidence with diaspora and memory studies, Flexsenhar expands on this narrative to explore new and more nuanced representations of this group, showing how the long-accepted stories of Christian slaves and freepersons in Caesar's household should not be taken at face value but should instead be understood within the context of Christian myth- and meaning-making. Flexsenhar analyzes textual and material evidence from the first to the sixth century, spanning Roman Asia, the Aegean rim, Gaul, and the coast of North Africa as well as the imperial capital itself. As a result, this book shows how stories of the emperor's slaves were integral to key developments in the spread of Christianity, generating origin myths in Rome and establishing a shared history and geography there, differentiating and negotiating assimilation with other groups, and expressing commemorative language, ritual acts, and a material culture. With its thoughtful critical readings of literary and material sources and its fresh analysis of the lived experiences of imperial slaves and freedpersons, Christians in Caesar's Household is indispensable reading for scholars of early Christianity, the origins of religion, and the Roman Empire.

The Fight to Flourish Study Guide: Learn to Live Fully Wherever You Are
How do you live a full life? Perhaps the better question is, how do you really live when life throws you sucker punches, when you face obstacles that seem to snuff out your faith, when you lose something or someone precious to you? In The Fight to Flourish, Jennie Lusko encourages women to suit up and thrive not just in the dailies of monotony and routine, but even in the most desolate of places. Using the backdrop of her second-born daughter Lenya's passing into heaven five days before Christmas in 2012, Jennie invites women to embrace whatever destination they've landed. She teaches how through the good and bad, they can learn to grow, be strong, draw near to God, and be a blessing to others. It is in this sacred space of pain and promise that women can begin to flourish. While The Fight to Flourish is geared toward living fully in tough times, Jennie's stories and insight also embrace the non-climactic events in life. Like when life feels, well, ordinary. Monotonous. Routine. How can we live fully when life is...boring? The life-giving Scriptural truths Jennie offers will help women manage their disappointments and losses through the power of Jesus. They can be strong. They can have courage. They can grow in faith. They can make a difference. Jennie's refreshing transparency, deep love for Jesus, and grit for thriving in life is sure to encourage women twenty through fifty years young, planted in different seasons of life.

Divine Doppelgangers: YHWH's Ancient Look-Alikes
The Bible says that YHWH alone is God and that there is none like him-but texts and artwork from antiquity show that many gods looked very similar. In this volume, scholars of the Hebrew Bible and its historical contexts address the problem of YHWH's ancient look-alikes, providing recommendations for how Jews and Christians can think theologically about this challenge. Sooner or later, whether in a religion class or a seminary course, students bump up against the fact that God-the biblical God-was one among other, comparable gods. The ancient world was full of gods, including great gods of conquering empires, dynastic gods of petty kingdoms, goddesses of fertility, and personal spirit guardians. And in various ways, these gods look like the biblical God. Like the God of the Bible, they, too, controlled the fates of nations, chose kings, bestowed fecundity and blessing, and cared for their individual human charges. They spoke and acted. They experienced wrath and delight. They inspired praise. All of this leaves Jews and Christians in a bind: how can they confess that the God named YHWH was (and is) the true and living God, in view of this God's profound similarities to all these others? The essays in this volume address the theological challenge these parallels create, providing reflections on how Jews and Christians can keep faith in YHWH as God while acknowledging the reality of YHWH's divine doppelgangers. It will be welcomed by undergraduates studying religion; seminarians and graduate students of Bible, theology, and the ancient world; and adult education classes.

Using Our Outside Voice: Public Biblical Interpretation
In Using Our Outside Voice, Greg Carey contends that responsible public biblical interpretation requires the ability to enter a conversation about the Bible, to understand the various arguments in play, and to offer informed opinions that others can understand. This role demands not only basic knowledge but also identifiable skills, habits, and dispositions. Carey does not suggest that public interpreters of the Bible are more insightful or more correct than are other people. But public biblical interpretation involves participating in reasoned conversations about the Bible and its significance.People appeal to the Bible for all sorts of reasons. The work of public biblical interpretation involves a level of accountability, both scholarly and moral. Carey encourages interpreters to develop proficiency in historical, cultural, and literary modes of interpretation as well as to cultivate familiarity with a broad range of interpretive options, including those from diverse cultural locations and historical points of view. Many interpreters work within the context of particular faith traditions and are accountable for engaging those traditions in meaningful, constructive ways. Public interpreters also are accountable for the ethical implications of their work.Using Our Outside Voice is ideal for students in biblical studies and those who teach, preach, and interpret the Bible.

Portraits of Jesus in the Gospel of John
John's Gospel is best known for its presentation of Jesus as the Word of God made flesh. But as the narrative unfolds, readers discover that the identity of Jesus is surprisingly complex. He is depicted as a teacher, a healer, a prophet, and Messiah. He is Jewish and Galilean, a human being who is Son of Man and Son of God. Portraits of Jesus in the Gospel of John considers each of these roles in detail, showing how each makes a distinctive contribution to the Gospel's rich mosaic of images for Jesus. John's multifaceted portrait of Jesus draws on a broad spectrum of early Christian traditions, and the contributors to this collection of essays explore the ways in which these traditions are both preserved and transformed in the Fourth Gospel. The writers draw us more deeply into the questions of the way in which traditions about Jesus developed in the early church and how the Gospel of John might contribute to our understanding of that dynamic process.

Becoming John
In this new analysis of the Gospel of John, Kari Syreeni argues that the gospel is a heavily reworked edition of an earlier Johannine work, and that the original did not include Jesus' passion. Syreeni theorizes that the original gospel ended at Chapter 12, with the notion of Jesus' disappearance from the world, and that the passion narrative was incorporated by a later editor freely using the existing gospels of Mark and Matthew. Syreeni suggests that the letters of John - written after the predecessor gospels but before the final edition - reveal a schism in the Johannine community that was caused by the majority faction's acceptance of Jesus' death and resurrection, as it was then recorded in the new gospel. By exploring the gospel's different means of legitimizing the passion story, such as the creation of the 'Beloved Disciple' to witness Jesus' passion, and the foreshadowing of the resurrection of Jesus in the miracle of Lazarus, Syreeni provides a bold and provocative case for a new understanding of John.

Reading Proverbs Intertextually
Sitting alongside the partner volumes Reading Job Intertextually (2012) and Reading Ecclesiastes Intertextually (2014) also published in the Library of Hebrew and Old testament Studies, this addition to the series continues the study of intertextuality in the Hebrew Bible. Dell and Kynes provide the first comprehensive treatment of intertextuality in Proverbs. Topics addressed include the intertextual resonances between Proverbs, and texts across the Hebrew canon, as well as texts throughout history, from the Dead Sea Scrolls to African and Chinese proverbial literature. The contributions, though comprehensive, do not provide clear-cut answers, but rather invite further study into connections between Proverbs and external texts, highlighting ideas and issues in relation to the extra texts discussed themselves. The volume gathers together scholars with specific expertise on the array of texts that intersect with Proverbs and these scholars in turn bring their own insights to the texts at hand. In particular the contributors have been encouraged to pursue the intertextual approach that best suits their topic, thereby offering readers a valuable collection of intertextual case studies that address a single biblical book.

Galatians Study Guide: Faith, Freedom, and Fruit
Do you understand what people mean when they say you are Free in Christ? Are you living led by the Spirit or lost in the world? Is your life bearing good fruit? Most of us struggle to truly understand how it is we can know freedom without a set of rules to follow and even more so how to let go of the rules of this world and simply follow the Spirit into growth and blessing. Bible teacher and author Jada Edwards digs into the book of Galatians where we learn what freedom in Christ really means, how saying yes to the conviction and guidance of the Holy Spirit establishes this freedom and how through the Spirit we affect our communities and those around us in his name. The Holy Spirit tells us when to keep silent or speak up, to apologize, take risks, take rest, to say yes or no, and so much more. He gives us direction in the big dreams and in the daily steps. What fruit we yield is the final evidence of our freedom in Jesus Christ. Connecting these dots is paramount to our experience of true freedom and it takes a renewed understanding of what freedom Jesus really brings. We won't see different behavior in ourselves nor a different response from the world until we stand on this freedom and say no to anything less than the Gospel. The Book of Galatians teaches how yielding our desires to the work of the Holy Spirit within us encourages our faith, sets us free, and results in our lives being sources of change in the world around us.

The Challenge of History: Readings in Modern Theology
The advent of the modern, historical, and critical methods of reading Scripture is one of the most significant events in the last five hundred years of Christian history and theology. New questions arose in the course of that history that led to new, sometimes troubling answers. New ways of considering Scripture were articulated. The crisis in which academic Christian theology has found itself for approximately two hundred years is directly related to the emergence of new ways of studying--and criticizing--the Bible.The Challenge of History traces the trajectory of these developments, presenting key readings from over thirty-five theologians--from Erasmus to Pannenberg--whose writings relate to the birth of modern historical and critical exegesis and, more broadly, to the emergence, among theologians and biblical scholars, of a certain historical consciousness that characterizes vast segments of modernity. How did the historical and critical methods arise? How did they impact the study of Scripture? What are their implications for Christian theology? Scripture is read--and needs to be read--differently in a parish, in a monastery, and in an academic setting. But the various ways of approaching Scripture should not be cordoned off from one another.This volume is an ideal textbook for in-depth study of one of the most important topics in modern theology.

Shows prophesy not as disconnected symbolism - but as one continuing unfolding timeline from Daniel 9:24 to Revelation 22:21. Includes free custom downloadable color charts that show the complete unfolding of the prophesied End Times. Doesn't set out to prove a predetermined historical view, but uses many of the available passages, comparing Scripture with Scripture, and condensing what the Bible says into a single unfolding narrative. Focuses on simplifying the wording and concepts, so that the 63-year-old carpenter, the 42-year-old salesperson, the 30-year-old nurse, and the 16-year-old student can all easily understand. Clearly describes how historical events like the rebuilding of Jerusalem's walls by Nehemiah, the return of Israel to their homeland, the evil Adolf Hitler killing half of all the Jews on the planet - were not only fulfillments of prophesy - but each advanced the stopwatch ticking toward End Times. Attempts to paint vivid mental pictures in the mind of the readers of events like the Rapture, the Marriage Feast of the Lamb, the Second Coming of Jesus, the defeat of satan in the battle of Armageddon, a New Heaven and Earth, and a look inside the New Jerusalem (Heaven). Ties events prophesied about End Times in the Old Testament directly into Jesus' prophesies in the Gospels, adds lots and lots of key passages from the Epistles, and finalizes them all in the explosive unmasking of Jesus' Revelation.

Cain v. Abel: A Jewish Courtroom Drama
Enter the packed courtroom and take your seat as a juror on the Cain v. Abel trial. Soon, the prosecution and defense attorneys (angels from Jewish legend) will call Cain, Abel, Sin, Adam, Eve, and God to the witness stand to present their perspectives on the world's first murder. Great Jewish commentators throughout the ages will also offer contradictory testimony on Cain's emotional, societal, and spiritual influences. As jurors, when we mete out Cain's punishment, must we factor in his family history, psychological makeup, and the human impulse to sin? In this highly eclectic and gripping compilation of insights by Jewish commentators on the Cain and Abel story, courtroom scenes are juxtaposed with the author's commentary, advancing novel insights and introspection. As each of us grapples with Cain's actions, we confront our own darkest traits. If Cain is a symbol for all humanity, what can we do to avoid becoming like him? Furthering this conversation, Rabbi Dan Ornstein includes a discussion and activity guide to promote open dialogue about human brokenness and healing, personal impulses, and societal responsibility.

Since We Saw You Last: The Church, The Community and Rites of Passage
Methodist Minister, Rev Ben Clowes has produced a series of Bible studies which relates scripture to living in the 21st Century. Using the music of Gary Barlow's highly emotional 2013 solo album, Since I Saw You Last as a backdrop, the studies look at how as a Church we connect with people most often at times of rites of passage. Since We Saw You Last offers a clear creative way to run a study or fellowship group to deepen discipleship. If people are searching for meaning in their lives, we need to speak into this as Christians and Ben believes this is at the heart of the links between the `I am' sayings, rites of passage and the words we hear so eloquently put by Gary Barlow. Christians must be a people who reach out and share the good news of Jesus' love with the world.

The Invention of Religion: Faith and Covenant in the Book of Exodus
A groundbreaking account of how the Book of Exodus shaped fundamental aspects of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam The Book of Exodus may be the most consequential story ever told. But its spectacular moments of heaven-sent plagues and parting seas overshadow its true significance, says Jan Assmann, a leading historian of ancient religion. The story of Moses guiding the enslaved children of Israel out of captivity to become God's chosen people is the foundation of an entirely new idea of religion, one that lives on today in many of the world's faiths. First introduced in Exodus, new ideas of faith, revelation, and above all covenant transformed basic assumptions about humankind's relationship to the divine and became the bedrock of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.

Deepening Your Prayer Life: Approach God with Boldness
Prayer is communication. It is not a formula that we have memorized, or an empty repetition of words and phrases, but our conversation with God-with us first speaking and then listening to what God has to say to us in return. However, as Dr. Charles Stanley reveals in Deepening Your Prayer Life, our prayers go beyond mere human interaction in that it gives us access into the very throne room of God. Our heavenly Father grants us the privilege to come before him with authority because of our position in Christ. When we do, we can be bold in believing that God will accomplish what he promised he would do in our lives. The Charles Stanley Bible Studies are a unique approach to Bible study, incorporating biblical truth, personal insights, emotional responses, and a call to action. Each study draws on Dr. Stanley's many years of teaching on the guiding principles found in God's Word, showing how we can apply them in practical ways to every situation we face. This edition of the series has been completely revised and updated and includes two brand-new lessons from Dr. Stanley.

Four Portraits, One Jesus, 2nd Edition: A Survey of Jesus and the Gospels
To Christians worldwide, the man Jesus of Nazareth is the centerpiece of history, the object of faith, hope, and worship. Even those who do not follow him admit the vast influence of his life. For anyone interested in knowing more about Jesus, study of the four biblical Gospels is essential. The second edition of Four Portraits, One Jesus has been updated throughout to meet the needs to today's students. It is a thorough yet accessible introduction to the four biblical Gospels and their subject, the life and person of Jesus. Like different artists rendering the same subject using different styles and points of view, the Gospels paint four highly distinctive portraits of the same remarkable Jesus. With clarity and insight, Mark Strauss illuminates these four books addressing the following important areas: First he addresses the nature, origin, methods for study, and historical, religious, and cultural backgrounds of the Gospels. He then moves on to closer study of each narrative and its contribution to our understanding of Jesus, investigating things such as plot, characters, and theme. Finally, he pulls it all together with a detailed examination of what the Gospels teach about Jesus' ministry, message, death, and resurrection, with excursions into the quest for the historical Jesus and the historical reliability of the Gospels. This textbook together with its workbook, video lectures, and laminated sheet gives students everything they need for a thorough and enriching study of Jesus and the Gospels.

You Belong Study Guide: Because God Is Who He Says He Is
Does life ever seem lacking connection or coming up short of satisfying? Have you questioned or thought about why you seek meaning in every experience? Or how much you really don't like being left out? The truth is that we are created to be a part of each other and the joy that comes from belonging is by design ... in your presence there is fullness of joy, at your right hand are pleasures forevermore Psalm 16:11. How then does fullness of joy allude our culture? Women so often push under the rug their spiritual insecurities and secret questions of being accepted and worthy. Here they are empowered to learn a daily experience of glory to glory in the simple and real practices of life with Christ. Moving past self-doubt, helplessness, and lack of clarity brings women into a deeper, more engaging, and victorious relationship with God-not alone, but together. In this six-session video Bible study (DVD/digital downloads sold separately), author and Bible teacher Candace Payne dives head first into the hope and fullness of joy found we get only from Christ. Candace walks women through how to identify and trace the patterns of joy found in the presence of God and answers perhaps the most common question among all people: Do I belong? Yes, you do. And your joy depends on it. Designed for use with You Belong Video Study (sold separately).

Jesus Over Everything Study Guide With DVD
Do you long to know what a truly transformed life really feels like? Do you want to? Every reference to transformation and a healthy spiritual life in Scripture is dependent on putting God first, so what's the problem? Often times our human struggle is rooted in our priorities and where Jesus lands on our laundry list of considerations. Regardless of what we know to be true, our actions do not reflect the truth and virtue that Christ promises when we choose to put him first. Author, Bible teacher, and ministry leader Lisa Whittle challenges us to put Jesus over everything- from simple to complex circumstance, heart to head understanding, in everyday application and see what really happens. Because only when He is first do we know what a truly transformed life feels like. Lisa puts practical language to our universal difficulties, offering hope and direction for the future ahead. Jesus Over Everything is a compelling picture of what Jesus followers both crave and struggle to define as we seek to give God His rightful place in our everyday lives. In this six-week study, women will learn the tools to live with spiritual consistency, break damaging thought patters, find greater motivation to take care of the same things that break Jesus' heart in their everyday lives, gain applicable insight into everyday issues and responses, and have a clear understanding of how much better life is when God is the priority, right now. This pack contains one study guide and one DVD.

Overcoming the Enemy: Life in Victory Over Trials and Temptations
Many people today believe the devil does not exist. They think he is merely an ancient myth or a metaphor to explain the presence of evil in our world. However, the Bible clearly teaches that Satan is very real-and that he will stop at nothing to bring about our destruction. That's the bad news. But as Dr. Charles Stanley explains in Overcoming the Enemy, the good news is that Jesus Christ has already defeated the devil-utterly, permanently, and irrevocably. While this does not mean we will never be confronted with his evil, we have the promise that in Christ we will always have the victory over him. The Charles Stanley Bible Studies are a unique approach to Bible study, incorporating biblical truth, personal insights, emotional responses, and a call to action. Each study draws on Dr. Stanley's many years of teaching on the guiding principles found in God's Word, showing how we can apply them in practical ways to every situation we face.
