The nine brilliant essays in this volume include analyses of specific Biblical motifs, discussions of post-Biblical developments, and a concluding paper which offers a solution to some apparent paradoxes in the figures depicted in the excavated synagogues at Dura-Europos. Of more than usual interest to specialists and laymen alike, these studies make important and, in many instances, challenging contributions to Biblical scholarship.
