IVP Academic Letters and Homilies for Jewish Christians: A Socio-Rhetorical Commentary on Hebrews, James and Jude [SRC]

In this commentary on Hebrews, James and Jude, Ben Witherington III applies his socio-rhetorical method to elucidate these letters within their primarily Jewish context, probing the social setting of the readers and the rhetorical strategies of the authors of the letters. Witherington examines the rhetorical and social sciences from a historical viewpoint and seeks to avoid most of the dangers of anachronism by limiting his "rhetorical commentary" to early Jewish rhetoric and Greco-Roman rhetoric which existed during the time. This book also features "Bridging the Horizon" sections to help readers assess the contemporary relevance of these ancient texts , and "Closer Look" sections that explore contemporary issues in more detail.

Ben Witherington III (Ph.D., University of Durham, England) is professor of New Testament at Asbury Theological Seminary in Wilmore, Kentucky. He is the author of many books on the New Testament, including Women and the Genesis of Christianity, Jesus the Sage, The Jesus Quest, and The Paul Quest. Dr. Witherington has also appeared on numerous TV news programs such as Dateline, 60 Minutes, 20/20 and the Peter Jennings ABC special Jesus and Paul--The Word and the Witness.
