E. P. Sanders
Sanders T h i s controversial and encyclopedic study is destined to be the most important book on its subject to appear in a generation. Drawing on a profound knowledge of the original sources, Professor Sanders has written an account of Rabbinic Judaism which has already been acclaimed as the most understandable such study ever undertaken b y a non-Jew. A s a result of his investigations, the author argues that the majority o f modern N e w Testament scholars, including such diverse figures as Joachim Jeremias and Rudolf Bultmann, have seriously misunderstood and therefore misinterpreted the nature of Judaism at the time of Jesus. I n the present work, Judaism emerges as a religion of a much greater stature, and not as a serious decline from the ideals of the earlier Old Testament period. T h e author extends his study, in the second half of the book, to Paul. Here again Professor Sanders argues that scholars have misunderstood much of the thought of Paul, especially where it concerns his relationship to Judaism.
