I would like to bring to your attention an excellent article by one of the best Biblical scholars of today who specializes in New Testament studies. Prof. Dr. Jürgen K. Zangenberg is an archeologist and professor of New Testament Interpretation at Leiden University (Holland), one of Europe’s oldest and most prestigious institutions. His outstanding article “Dry Bones and Heavenly Bliss: Tombs, Post-Mortal Existence and Life-After-Death in Ancient Judaism”, though slightly cumbersome to pronounce, is a must read for any serious eTeacherBiblical student.
The author shows how the archeological discoveries, especially, those connected with the burial customs of the ancient Jews, shed the light on all kinds of questions that continued to puzzle New Testament scholars for centuries. So grab a hot cup of coffee, sit in a comfortable chair and click here to read it. More of excellent articles are being picked for your attention and benefit.
