The Incarnation of God: The Character of Divinity in Formative Judaism

Etukansi
Global Academic Publishing, 2001 - 295 sivua
Advancing his monumental study of formative Judaism further, Jacob Neusner examines the notion of divine incarnations as a central element of the portrait of God that came into focus through the Judaism of the dual Torah. In dealing with his concept—which is obviously critical for Christian theology also—Neusner shows how God was described in allusions and narratives as corporeal, exhibiting traits of emotions like those of human beings, and doing deeds that women and men do.
