Chapter Summary

John C. Endres, S.J. analyzes several prayers in the Book of Jubilees, comparing them with the biblical base text, with the Septuagint (LXX), and Qumran materials, using these texts to enrich our view of early biblical interpretation and attitudes toward prayer. Mapping Diapsora Identities are a tribute to Betsy's early scholarship on land and covenant theology in post-biblical Judaism. In Rewriting the Bible: Land and Covenant in Post-Biblical Jewish Literature, she explored the way land symbolism was developed in post-biblical Jewish texts. A collection in honor of Betsy Halpern-Amaru would not be complete without reference to the genre of ancient biblical interpretation. Rewriting Tradition acknowledges the centrality of the re-written bible in all of Betsy's academic work. In The Case of the Blasphemer according to Philo and Josephus, Louis Feldman draws attention to the way that the biblical "case of the blasphemer" is transformed in Philo.

Keywords: Betsy Halpern-Amaru; Book of Jubilees; Jewish Literature; Josephus; Louis Feldman; Philo; Qumran materials
