This edition is the result of comprehensive scholarly research that addresses the perplexing issues of death, immortality, resurrection and eternal life during the Second Temple Period. The subtitle "The evidence of Josephus" indicates that substantial use is made of Josephus' writings in order to understand how concepts pertaining to death and the afterlife took shape in early Judaism and Christianity during a time of revolt and reconsideration. These were the centuries on the hinge just before and just after the Common Era.
