An Online Encyclopedia of Second Temple Judaism and Christian Origins

John Hobbins heralds good news!

The website is an academic project of the Enoch Seminar, directed by Gabriele Boccaccini (University of Michigan, USA) and Loren T. Stuckenbruck (Princeton Theological Seminary, USA) and, until recently – זכרונו לברכה – Hanan Eshel (Bar-Ilan University, Israel). Hanan Eshel (1958-2010), whose life, work, and faith in God on whom he relied in his battle with cancer is evoked here, was a prolific and gracious scholar. Gabriele Boccacini eulogizes him here. Robert Cargill gives examples of his kindness. For another remembrance, go here.
