48 editions published between 1983 and 2015 in English and Spanish and held by 1,706 libraries worldwide
The writers of the Bible lived in a world filled with many writings. Some of these documents are lost forever, but many have been preserved. Part of these extant sources are the Pseudepigrapha. This collection of Jewish and Christian writings shed light on early Judaism and Christianity and their doctrines. This landmark set includes all 65 Pseudepigraphical documents from the intertestamental period that reveal the ongoing development of Judaism and the roots from which the Christian religion took its beliefs. A scholarly authority on each text contributes a translation, introduction, and critical notes for each text. Volume 2 includes expansions of the "Old Testament" legends, wisdom, and philosophical literature; prayers, psalms, and odes; and fragments of lost Judeo-Hellenistic Works

"Jesus and the Dead Sea Scrolls gets to the heart of the matter of why these documents are so important. Simply, they give us unprecedented and unparalleled insight into the times in which Jesus lived, and remain among the few surviving original documents written by the hands of Jesus' contemporaries. This detailed investigation provides us with useful insight into, and much needed clarification of, Jesus life and teachings as they begin to emerge from the shadows of history."--Jacket

The good and evil serpent : how a universal symbol became Christianized by James H Charlesworth( Book )
10 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and Italian and held by 785 libraries worldwide
The serpent of ancient times was more often associated with positive attributes like healing and eternal life than it was with negative meanings. This groundbreaking book explores in plentiful detail the symbol of the serpent from 40,000 BCE to the present, and from diverse regions in the world. In doing so it emphasizes the creativity of the biblical authors' use of symbols and argues that we must today reexamine our own archetypal conceptions with comparable creativity.--From publisher description
