9781440060120: The Cambridge Companion to the Bible (Classic Reprint)

Song of Songs. The books Proverbs andE ccle.siastes cannot strictly be called Poetical. They belong to theS apiential or Didactic class of writing. iv. ProjjhetK oi Books These are divided into the tour Ma.ior and the twelve Minor Prophets. () The Major Prophets are the four largest books of prophecy arranged in the chronological order of the names which they bear. Strictly speaking, the book Daniel is Apocalypse rather than Projihecy. (b) The order of the twelve Minor Prophets is approximately chronological. The book Jonah differs by its narrative character from the writings with which it is classed. The arrangement of the books in the MSS. of the Greek and Latin Bibles varies very much. The A pocrypha) books are most commonly introduced as follows: Tobit and Judith after Esther, Wisdom andE cclesiasticus afterS ong of Songs, Baruch and theE pistle of Jeremy after Lamentations, and 1, 2M accabees after Malachi. The books of our Old Testament are 39 in number. Bat this figure is considerably in excess of the number of independent writings included in the collection. The subdivision of Samuel, Kings, Chronicles, Ezra-N ehemiah, as well as of the Pentateuch, is artificial. More accurately we should speak of 31 books, or, if Joshua be really inseparable in structure from the Pentateuch, and Chronicles fromE zraN ehemiah, of 29 books of the O. T. In the Hebrew Bible the books are divided into the three groups. Law, Prophets, and Writings or Hagiographa. The arrangement of the books within the separate groups has differed from time to time. Modern editions give the traditional (M assoretic) order adopted by the great Jewish Biblical scholars of theM iddle A ges, which is rejjroduced in the following scheme: (A) The Law or Torah, the five books of the Pentateuch, each receiving its name from its opening word or words.

Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Excerpt from A Companion to Biblical Studies: Being a Revised and Rewritten Edition of the Cambridge Companion to the Bible More than twenty years have elapsed since The Cambridge Companion to the Bible was published. During that period Biblical Research has continued to be active and fruitful, and the old Companion is not sufficient for the wants of the present day. The time has come for the issue of a new edition - or rather, of a new book, which covers most of the old ground, but at the same time contains many important additions. The general structure of the old book remains, but fresh articles have been added, old articles have been re-written, and every page has passed under a revising eye. It is not invidious to single out for mention one of the new articles, for the writer is venerated by all readers of theological literature in Great Britain. The pages devoted to the Revelation of St John are from the hand of Dr Henry Barclay Swete, whose retirement from the Regius Professorship of Divinity took place on Sept. 29, 1915. The present book contains some seventy fewer pages than the old, but the pages themselves are larger. Some of the old articles have been improved by being shortened, and room has thus been found for much new material. Dr Westcott s article on Sacred Books of other faiths has been omitted with much regret, but it was felt that only the hand of the writer could have adapted it successfully to modem days. Special attention has been given to the New Testament. Besides Dr Swete s article there are new contributions from Dr A. E. Brooke, Mr Valentine-Richards and Mr Dean Smith. Another addition is the article on the Theology of the N.T. by Mr G. H. Clayton. Mr Elmslie and Mr Lanchester have written new articles on the Old Testament. The Dean of Wells and Professor Gwatkin have revised their contributions to the Companion of 1892. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books. Find more at This book is a reproduction of an important historical work. Forgotten Books uses state-of-the-art technology to digitally reconstruct the work, preserving the original format whilst repairing imperfections present in the aged copy. In rare cases, an imperfection in the original, such as a blemish or missing page, may be replicated in our edition. We do, however, repair the vast majority of imperfections successfully; any imperfections that remain are intentionally left to preserve the state of such historical works.
