Description

Advancing his monumental study of formative Judaism further, Jacob Neusner examines the notion of divine incarnations as a central element of the portrait of God that came into focus through the Judaism of the dual Torah. In dealing with his concept--which is obviously critical for Christian theology also--Neusner shows how God was described in allusions and narratives as corporeal, exhibiting traits of emotions like those of human beings, and doing deeds that women and men do.show more
