Israel's Multiple Others and the Birth of the Gentile

Adi Ophir and Ishay Rosen-Zvi

Oxford Studies in the Abrahamic Religions

  • A close reading of a vast corpus (Biblical, both old and new Testaments, and Rabbinic texts) helps students of theory to think textually, and students of history and philology to think theoretically about the question of otherness in general and about the Jew's Other in particular.
  • A rare integration of textual interpretation and theoretical probing, genealogical reconstruction and structural analytics.
  • Short introductions to the various texts discussed and critical engagement with existing scholarship helps to bring a new reader into a deeply complex and intricite historical study.

New to this Edition:

  • This paperback edition features a new preface by the authors.
