One of the earliest and most important works of biblical interpretation is a Latin text that is commonly known as the Liber Antiquitatum Biblicarum. It was written in the first second century C.E. and is thus a great source of illumination for the period and milieu out of which arose various Jewish sects and Christianity.This book offers the Latin text of LAB, a dramatically new translation, a commentary that deals extensively with LAB's place in ancient biblical exegesis, and an introduction that treats the major problems associated with LAB (e.g. date, original language, manuscript tradition, exegetical techniques).The author seeks to illuminate LAB in new ways by reconstructing the original Hebrew when that is useful, and by bringing new and pertinent evidence from the Bible, from Rabbinic literature, and from early Christian literature.Reviews"... Jacobson's commentary is to be welcomed with gratitude and respect. It represents an immense labour, and it will certainly become the standard and indispensable companion to the study of the Biblical Antiquities."--Nicholas de Lange, Bulletin of Judaeo-Greek Studies, 1996."... impressive critical commentary."--Bruce Fisk, Review of Biblical Literature, 1998.
