This thorough study covers all the primary data on how early Jews and Christians perceived crucifixion. The author examines Second Temple and early rabbinic literature and material remains to demonstrate the range of ancient Jewish perceptions. He also surveys ancient Jewish historical accounts of crucifixion, magical literature, and the proverbial use of crucifixion imagery. The volume pays special attention to Jewish interpretations of key Old Testament texts and early Christian literature that reflects on Jewish perceptions of the cross in antiquity. Originally published by Mohr Siebeck and now available as an affordable North American paperback edition, the book provides indispensable background for scholarly work on the death of Jesus.

From the Back Cover:

"This is a commendably thorough investigation of attitudes to crucifixion in Jewish texts in the Second Temple and Talmudic periods."--L. L. Grabbe, Journal for the Study of the Old Testament

"Chapman's thesis concerns the impact of Jewish perceptions of crucifixion on Christian thought. His review of preceding literature demonstrates the importance of this study, since contemporary research related to crucifixion and Judaism focuses primarily on the Graeco-Roman world, thereby limiting scholarly understanding to the history and practice of crucifixion. . . . [Chapman's] project is unique, his approach is fresh, and his reading of ancient sources is sound. It is an excellent book for students of early Judaic literature, and I would recommend it as an important contribution to biblical and rabbinic studies."--Michael D. Fiorello, Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society

"Chapman is to be commended for his willingness to address all arguments and also for putting forth what he sees as the best interpretation. . . . This work will be helpful for those interested in the general study of crucifixion in the ancient world, as well as those intrigued more specifically with early Jewish reactions to crucifixion in the Hellenistic period or with rabbinic exegesis of capital punishment texts. It also provides a useful background for possible perceptions of the earliest Christians toward Jesus' crucifixion. And it offers anther angle of inquiry into the hotly contested field of Jewish-Christian relations during the Hellenistic and Roman Imperial periods. The appendices, bibliography, and indices of authors, subjects, and citations are quite useful."--Lynn H. Cohick, Bulletin for Biblical Research

"This work presents an investigation that is simultaneously meticulous, serious, and balanced in its objectives and its conclusions."--Christian Grappe, Revue d'Histoire et de Philosophie Religieuses

"The revised version of a dissertation at the University of Cambridge under William Horbury, this will be the standard work on crucifixion for a long time to come."--Andreas J. Köstenberger, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary

Ancient Jewish and Christian Perceptions of Crucifixion was originally published in Wissenschaftliche Untersuchungen zum Neuen Testament, Second Series.
