What Judaic background books?
I am not referring to history recorded by Luke or what Paul taught, etc. I am referring to the teachings of our Lord and Savior, who clearly stated that He only said/taught what God told Him to. I don't think God had to visit Hillel's teachings and go - oh, that sounds like a plan, let's give that to My Son so people can think He is reworking what Hillel said. Do you see the congruity of that? Or am I just a fool to think that God has His own "original" teachings?
Sorry, I haven't had my Judaic background books out for a while. Here's my memory:
Rabbi Sandmel. Judaism and Christians Beginnings.
Keller. The Bible as History.
Longenecker. Biblical Exegesis in the Apostolic Period.
Brinsmead. Justification By Faith and Eschaology.
Bright. The Kingdom of God.
Rhoads. Israel in Revolution, 6-73 CE
