Essays representing ten years of John J. Collins's expert reflection on Scripture and the Qumran community are here collected in a volume that is sure to be of interest to students and scholars of Early Judaism and the Dead Sea Scrolls. Collins opens with the introductory chapter "What Have We Learned from the Dead Sea Scrolls?" before offering essays on the authority and interpretation of Scripture, historiography and the emergence of the Qumran sect, and specific aspects of the sectarian worldview: covenant and dualism, the angelic world, the afterlife, prayer and ritual, and wisdom. A concluding epilogue considers the account of the Suffering Servant and illustrates the relevance of the Dead Sea Scrolls for early Christianity.

A renowned scholar of the Dead Sea Scrolls argues for reading the Gospel of Matthew as the product of a Jewish sect In this masterful study of what has long been considered the “most Jewish” gospel, John Kampen deftly argues that the gospel of Matthew advocates for a distinctive Jewish sectarianism, rooted in the Jesus movement. He maintains that the writer of Matthew produced the work within an early Jewish sect, and its narrative contains a biography of Jesus which can be used as a model for the development of a sectarian Judaism in Lower Syria, perhaps Galilee, toward the conclusion of the first century CE. Rather than viewing the gospel of Matthew as a Jewish-Christian hybrid, Kampen considers it a Jewish composition that originated among the later followers of Jesus a generation or so after the disciples. This method of viewing the work allows readers to understand what it might have meant for members of a Jesus movement to promote their understanding of Jewish history and law that would sustain Jewish life at the end of the first century.

"The work examines the development of two branches of White Lotus sectarianism and government efforts to control their spread during the 18th century. The main sources are palace memorials from the Qing archives in Beijing and Taibei. The introduction addresses the role of leadership, ideology and state responses to sectarianism between 1723 and 1796 in shaping sectarian behavior. Chapter one details the development of Return to the Origin (Shou Yuan) sects that can be traced to Chang-zi County, Shanxi. Chapter two details the development of Primal Chaos (Hun Yuan) sects centered in Lu-yi County, Henan. Chapter three focuses on the interaction of the two branches in western Hubei and the Han River Highlands and examines the activities of important leaders such as Liu Song, Liu Zhi-xie, and Song Zhi-qing. Chapter four examines the 1794-1796 investigations and the hunt for Liu Zhi-xie that are said to have precipitated the rebellion. The following general conclusions result from the research: (1) The two sectarian networks had very different styles of leadership and organization. The Primal Chaos sects were more routinized, oriented toward the patriarchal leadership of Wang Huai-yu, and less inclined to rebel, while the Return to the Origin sects that took hold in western Hubei and the Han River Highlands were more dependent on individual charismatic leaders, lacked a stabilizing center, and were much more theologically innovative and potentially volatile; (2) Qing authorities, at least until the 1774 Wang Lun uprising, took a flexible approach toward potentially disruptive religious sectarianism. Moreover, with the exception of western Hubei and the Han River Highlands, effective surveillance and control at the local level enabled the Qing to check the transformation of sects into a threat to social stability; (3) The form of sectarian leadership and effectiveness of government local control were important factors in determining whether a region revolted in 1796, for with the exception of western Hubei and the Han River Highlands, no other area affected by the investigations of 1794-96 rose up against the Qing."--Abstract on item.

The use of Scripture in 1 Peter has been subject to much extensive analysis in the last thirty years. In Written to Serve Benjamin Sargent offers an up to date and comprehensive analysis of how 1 Pet 1.10-12 offers a 'hermeneutic,' providing an insight into how Scripture is interpreted in the letter. Sargent also argues that the relation of 1.10-12 has been misunderstood. Rather than offering a Christological hermeneutic with a focus on the suffering and glories of Christ, Sargent asserts that the primary importance of 1.10-12 is its orientation of the prophetic witness towards the eschatological community as an act of service. Similarly, rather than offering a theological narrative of continuity between Israel and Christian communities, 1.10-12 may be seen to suggest a narrative of profound discontinuity in which the community in the present is elevated above God's people of the past.

Throughout the last several decades professional biblical scholars have adapted concepts and theories from the social sciences – particularly social and cultural anthropology – in order to cast new light on ancient biblical writings, early Jewish and Christian texts that circulated with the Scriptures, and the various contexts in which these literatures were produced and first received. The present volume of essays draws much of its inspiration from that same development in the history of biblical research, while also offering insights from other, newer approaches to interpretation. The contributors to this volume explore a wide range of broadly social-scientific disciplines and discourses – cultural anthropology, sociology, archaeology, political science, the New Historicism, forced migration studies, gender studies – and provide multiple examples of the ways in which these diverse methods and theories can shed new and often fascinating light on the ancient texts. The fruit of scholarly work that is both international in flavour and truly collaborative, this volume provides fresh perspectives not only on familiar portions of Jewish and Christian Scripture but also on select passages from the Dead Sea Scrolls, the Nag Hammadi library and previously untranslated French texts.

In recent years, the term sectarianism has been widely used to explain contemporary affairs across the Middle East and North Africa. A range of assumptions about the nature of sectarianism have become prevalent amongst scholars and policy makers who engage with these areas, in part driven by the rivalry between Saudi Arabia and Iran (the two dominant Sunni and Shi’a states) and the emergence of ISIS. Despite its prevalence, few scholars have engaged critically with the meaning of the term and its application across the Middle East. Whilst many associate sectarianism with Islam, Sectarianism in the Contemporary Middle East interrogates the political, economic and security factors surrounding the term within both Islam and Judaism, leading to a better understanding of the contemporary politics of the Middle East. This book was originally published as a special issue of Global Discourse.

This book is a comprehensive study of Srimad Bhagavad Gita with each verse translated and explained separately. Meaning of all Sanskrit words is also provided. In this book one can find the essence of Gita explained in simple language. When I first studied Bhagavad Gita I found it difficult to understand and later found contradictions in commentaries of different authors. Sanskrit language is very flexible and different authors of different sects have tried to bend Bhagavad Gita according to their own tradition. I do not claim that I am the only authority to comment on Gita but in this book I have tried to study the verses of Gita according to my spiritual experience. I hope readers will find this study of Gita as easy to understand and yet expressing the right meaning. This study does not oppose any other commentary but at the same time tries not to contaminate Bhagavad Gita according to any sect. - Saurabh For interesting articles about spiritual topics visit my website www.saurabhnath.com

"Precious volumes," or pao-chüan, were produced by popular sects in the Ming and early Qing dynasties. These scriptures were believed to have been divinely revealed to sect leaders and contain teachings and ritual instructions that provide valuable information about a lively and widespread religious tradition outside mainstream Confucianism, Taoism, and Buddhism. Largely neglected until now, they testify to the imagination and devotion of popular religious leaders. This book, the most detailed and comprehensive study of pao-chüan in any language, studies 34 early examples of this literature in order to understand the origins and development of this textual tradition. Although the work focuses on content and structure, it also treats the social context of these works as well as their transmission and ritual use.
