Book Announcement: Die Zeloten by Martin Hengel (3rd Edition) @eisenbrauns

This looks great….

This new edition of Martin Hengel’s classic Die Zeloten (ET The Zealots , 1989) makes a seminal work in the field of Ancient Judaism available again, in German, fifty years after its first appearance. The new edition contains the original text with corrections. An additional appendix by Roland Deines, one of Professor Hengel’s students, describes the impact this book has had on the study of the Jewish freedom movement in the first century AD that led to the outbreak of the first Jewish revolt against Rome, and how the scholarly debate has developed since its initial publication. Die Zeloten represents the origin of Hengel’s lifelong interest in Jewish messianism and the study of the messianic claims of Jesus.
