JP wishes to make its readers aware of English versions of several articles by Professor David Flusser that were previously available only in Hebrew and/or German. These English translations are freely available to anyone at WholeStones.org.
Professor Flusser, one of the world’s leading Jewish authorities on Early Christianity, was a frequent contributor of articles to Jerusalem Perspective. In these new English translations Flusser examines such topics as the song of the angels (“Glory to God in the Highest…”) who appeared to the shepherds in Luke’s Gospel, Jesus’ temptation in the desert, Jesus’ exposition of the Torah in the Sermon on the Mount, examples of midrash (ancient Jewish interpretation of Scripture) in the New Testament, the rejection of Jesus by the Samaritan villagers, and a new look at Jesus’ “opening up of the Scriptures” to the disciples on the Emmaus Road.
On the same site as the Flusser translations readers will also find English versions of articles by other (mainly Israeli) scholars on subjects relating to the New Testament, rabbinic literature, and the Second Temple Period.
Below are links to the individual articles:
