Jewish Bible Quarterly 39:3 (2011)

According to its website, the Jewish Bible Quarterly ‘provides timely, authoritative studies on biblical themes’, and ‘as the only Jewish-sponsored English-language journal devoted exclusively to the Bible, it is an essential source of information for anyone working in Bible studies’.

I’ve certainly found quite a lot of useful material it it over the years: the articles are relatively short, they almost always offer close readings of (from my Christian perspective) ‘Old Testament’ texts, and sometimes provide insights I might not get from elsewhere.

Below is the content for the July-September 2011 issue, all available online here:
