David Flusser (1917- 2000) was professor of early Christianity and Judaism of the Second Temple Period at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, a member of the Israel Academy of Sciences and Humanities and a recipient of the National Israel Prize in 1980 for his academic achievements.
William Adler North Carolina State University "Students of early Judaism and Christianity owe the late David Flusser a deep and lasting debt of gratitude for his far-ranging contributions to the field. No scholar has done more to enrich our understanding of Jesus and the New Testament in the context of Judaism of that day. These essays, now available for the first time in English translation, represent Flusser's scholarship at its best: prodigious learning, close textual analysis, original insights, and unrivaled command of the languages and source material."Joseph A. Fitzmyer, S.J. Catholic University of America "This translation of collected essays of David Flusser on Judaism of the Second Temple Period is a very welcome addition to the study of the Dead Sea Scrolls. It discusses many aspects of the relation of Qumran literature to later Jewish writings and even to the Christian writings of the New Testament. All who make use of this book will profit from Flusser's learned and thorough treatment of such texts."John J. Collins Yale University "David Flusser was an original and colorful commentator on Second Temple Judaism, and he was especially influential in Israeli scholarship. Many of Flusser's articles, however, have hitherto not been available in English, were widely scattered in obscure publications besides, and consequently have not been widely known in the English-speaking world. Azzan Yadin has rendered an inestimable service to scholars and students of Second Temple Judaism by translating them and bringing them together in this timely volume.""
