Intertextual Studies in Ben Sira and Tobit
Essays in Honor of Alexander A. Di Lella, O.F.M.
This volume offers 17 essays on the apocryphal/deuterocanonical books of Ben Sira (Ecclesiasticus) and Tobit. Four essays explore Tobit's connections with Genesis (Irene Nowell), Job (Anathea Portier-Young), Psalms (Stephen Ryan), and the New Testament (Vincent Skemp), with a fifth considering the medieval Hebrew and Aramaic Tobit texts (Loren Stuckenbruck and Stuart Weeks). Five further essays examine Ben Sira's links with Genesis (Maurice Gilbert), Exodus (Friedrich Reiterer), Kings (Pancratius Beentjes), Prophets (Leo Perdue), and Proverbs (Jeremy Corley). Seven more essays on Ben Sira refer to the patriarch Joseph (Robert Hayward), Ezra (Michael Duggan), fear of God (Renate Egger-Wenzel), Qoheleth (Edward Owens), First Enoch (Benjamin Wright), Letter of James (Núria Calduch-Benages), and Matthew's Gospel (James Aitken).
