Leviticus 23-27 : a new translation with introduction and commentary by Jacob Milgrom( Book )

20 editions published between 2000 and 2010 in English and held by 850 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It provides an authoritative and comprehensive explanation of ethical values concealed in Israel's rituals. Although at first glance Leviticus seems far removed from the modern-day world, Milgrom's thoughtful and provocative comments and notes reveal its enduring relevance to contemporary society. Leviticus 23-27 brings us to the climactic end of the book and its revolutionary innovations, among which are the evolution of the festival calendar with its emphasis on folk traditions, and the jubilee, the priestly answer to the socio-economic problems of their time
Leviticus 17-22 : a new translation with introduction and commentary by Jacob Milgrom( Book )

17 editions published between 2000 and 2008 in English and held by 848 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Jacob Milgrom, a rabbi and Bible scholar, has devoted the bulk of his career to examining the laws of the Torah. His incisive commentary on Leviticus, which began with Leviticus 1-16, continues in this second of three volumes. It provides an authoritative and comprehensive explanation of ethical values concealed in Israel's rituals. Although at first glance Leviticus seems far removed from the modern-day world, Milgrom's thoughtful and provocative comments and notes reveal its enduring relevance to contemporary society." "Leviticus 17-22 brings us to the heart of the book. These chapters focus mainly on the practice of holiness required of laity and priest alike. The commandments that lead to holiness are detailed in chapter 19, the core of the book, if not the whole Torah. The acme of this chapter, the author maintains, is not "love your neighbor (read Israelites) as yourself," but "love him (read the alien) as yourself," endowing him with equal civil rights." "With its English translations that convey the nuance and power of the original Hebrew, this trilogy will takes its place alongside the best of the Anchor Bible Commentaries. Book jacket."--Jacket

Ezekiel's hope : a commentary on Ezekiel 38-48 by Jacob Milgrom( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this volume Milgrom guides us engagingly through Ezekiel's oracle against Gog (chs. 38-39) and his final vision of Israel's physical and spiritual restoration (chs. 40-48) ... It is fitting that this final form of this project be cast as an interfaith dialogue with Daniel Block ... This volume offers a window into how one Jewish scholar engaged with the work of a Christian scholar. It invites readers to listen in on their conversation, in the course of which they will also hear the voices of medieval Jewish rabbis, particularly R. Eliezer of of Beaugency and R. Joseph Kara"--Page 4 of cover
