This volume explores how Jewish and Christian religious commitments affect theological appraisals of the Hebrew Scriptures. Further, it documents how contemporary Jewish-Christian dialogue influences modern critical reflection on the theology of the Hebrew Bible. Growing out of the Society of Biblical Literature's Theology of the Hebrew Scriptures Section, this volume presents essays by leading Jewish and Christian scholars of the Hebrew Bible. The contributors are Alice Ogden Bellis, Marc Zvi Brettler, Walter Brueggemann, John J. Collins, Ellen F. Davis, Terence Fretheim, Tikva Frymer-Kensky, Esther Fuchs, Baruch Halpern, Joel S. Kaminsky, Jon D. Levenson, Murray H. Lichtenstein, David Marcus, Rolf Rendtorff, Jorge Pixley, Brooks Schramm, S. David Sperling, Marvin A. Sweeney, and Johanna van Wijk Bos.These essays capture central debates emerging from the changed landscape in which Jews and Christians now study the Bible in each other's presence. In addition they reflect the excitement generated by the greater clarity and new depths of meaning that Jews and Christians perceive in the biblical text when they work together in the task of interpretation. Thus Joseph's words in Gen 43:3 become prophetic for a new situation: "You shall not see my face, unless your brother is with you."
