9780521631143: Pontius Pilate in History and Interpretation (Society for New Testament Studies Monograph Series)

This study reconstructs the life of Pontius Pilate, the Roman governor responsible for the execution of Jesus. The first section provides the historical and archaeological background. The following chapters look at six first-century authors: Philo, Josephus and the four gospel writers. Each chapter asks how Pilate is being used as a literary character in each work, why each author describes Pilate in a different way, and what this tells us about the relationship between each author and the Roman state.

Review:

"A helpful review..." Bibliotecha Sacra

"The book is thoroughly researched, lucidly written, and well organized; it will be a standard historical work on Pilate. Recommended for any library supporting Greco-Roman history and New Testament studies." Choice

"This is a good and helpful study." Journal of Biblical Literature

"[Bond] has challenged established academic thought and introduced important information into a vital area of New Testament study. Most importantly Bond illustrates the extent to which modern academic misinterpretation has contributed to the manipulation of an already created image. ...Bond has in effect achieved far more, not least of which are the useful commentaries on the Gospels, and valued insight into the tenuous social situation of first century Judaea....Bond has created an extremely accessible volume, valuable for academics and students alike." Elizabeth Amanda Howey, Bryn Mawr Classical Review

"Bond supplies a nuanced revisionist portrait, distinguishing `rhetorical' portraits (Philo, Josephus, and the four canonical Gospels) from the `historical' Pilate. The book is full of interpretive insights demonstrating how to read texts, how to interpret ancient authors' approaches to their work, and how `real' history became `literary' history. It is sure-footed on Roman governance, law and order, Roman and Judaen relations, and the politics of Tiberius's reign." Peter Richardson, Interpretation

"This is a good and helpful study." Review of Biblical Literature

"An evangelical pastor or teacher interested in this governor, the passion narratives, or comparing Gospel accounts will find this work valuable." Faith and Mission

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2004. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. This study reconstructs the historical Pontius Pilate and looks at the way in which he is used as a literary character in the works of six first century authors: Philo, Josephus and the four evangelists. The first chapter provides an introduction to the history and formation of the imperial Roman province of Judaea. The following two chapters examine the references to Pilate in Philo and Josephus, looking at each author s biases before going on to assess the historicity of their accounts. The next four chapters look at the portrayal of Pilate in each gospel, asking how a first century reader would have interpreted his actions. Each chapter asks what this portrayal shows about the author s attitude towards the Roman state, and what kind of community found this useful. The conclusion distinguishes between the historical Pilate and the different Pilate of interpretation preserved in our first century literary sources. Bookseller Inventory # APC9780521631143
