9780208015617: The canonization of Hebrew scripture: The Talmudic and Midrashic evidence (Transactions - The Connecticut Academy of Arts and Sciences ; v. 47, p. 1-234)

What were the criteria for the inclusion of a book among the select group of writings called the Hebrew Bible? On what grounds was it decided that certain books are divinely inspired and others are not? Why were the apocryphal books excluded from the Hebrew Bible? Did Philo, Josephus, the Dead Sea sect, and early Christianity share the same biblical canon? These are among the many issues explored in this book, which traces the course of the closing of the biblical canon. New 1991 printing in shrink wrap.
