Q&A With AJ and Marc

Over on the OUPblog: A Q&A with Amy-Jill Levine and Marc Zvi Brettler, editors of the newly released second edition of The Jewish Annotated New Testament

First published in 2011, The Jewish Annotated New Testament was a groundbreaking work, bringing the New Testament’s Jewish background to the attention of students, clergy, and general readers.  In this new edition, eighty Jewish scholars bring together unparalleled scholarship to shed new light on the text.  This thoroughly revised and greatly expanded second edition brings even more helpful information and new insights to the study of the New Testament.

In the post, Levine and Brettler discuss Jewish-Christian relations, the idea of “holy envy” and respect for different traditions, as well as the process and importance of putting together a project such as The Jewish Annotated New Testament.

AJ is just such a delight.  I’m glad to see this VERY useful edition of the NT out in a second incarnation.
