Mysterious Encounters at Mamre and Jabbok (Brown Judaic Studies 50)

Chico: Scholars Press, 1984. Hardcover. 8vo. viii, 243pp. Original red cloth with black lettering and border. Scholarly study of Jewish and early Christian interpretations of the meeting of angels in Genesis 18:1-16 and 32:23-33. In the first story Abraham serves a meal to angels, who inform him that Sarah will give birth to a son. The second story has Jacob fighting with an angel. Both of these stories raise important questions for Jews and Christians as both traditions claim allegiance to monotheism yet grant considerable power to angelic forces. The author is a Jesuit priest and a leading biblical scholar. In near fine condition. vg+. Item #35589
