En la semana que viene, hare unas traducciones sobre el Judaísmo del Segundo Templo, de parte de Lawrance H. Schiffman, que es un académico Judío residente en USA. Usualmente siempre pongo expertos del tema Cristianos, pero también, para ser justos, debo de poner aquellos Judíos que son expertos del tema.
Estén atentos, y espero que puedan aprender mas del Judaísmo que concierne al estudio bíblico, y no tanto sean engañados de personas que se mofan de ser judíos y ser expertos en el Judaísmo de hoy, pero que no tiene nada que ver con el Judaísmo, o como han dicho, los Judaísmos, del tiempo de Jesús.
Para mientras, les dejo la biografía del Profesor Schiffman para que sepan quien es.
I will be posting and referring to a series of 5 studies on the study of Second Temple and Rabbinic Judaism done by Prof. Schiffman in the coming days. I will that they will enlighten you as to the Judaism that Jesus and his disciples lived and experienced.
Stay tune. In the meantime, I offer Professor’s Schiffman bio that is found in his website.
Lawrence H. Schiffman is the Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education at Yeshiva University. He was formerly the Chair of New York University’s Skirball Department of Hebrew and Judaic Studies, where he served as Ethel and Irvin A. Edelman Professor of Hebrew and Judaic Studies. He was also a member of NYU’s Center for Ancient Studies and Center for Near Eastern Studies. He is a past president of the Association for Jewish Studies.
During the academic year 1989/90 he was a Fellow of the Institute for Advanced Studies of the Hebrew University in Jerusalem as part of a research group dealing with the Dead Sea Scrolls. He was featured in the PBS Nova series documentary, “Secrets of the Dead Sea Scrolls,” as well as in four BBC documentaries on the scrolls, the McNeil-Lehrer program, and a Discovery special. He appears regularly in the popular educational series, “Mysteries of the Bible,” which appears on Arts and Entertainment (A&E), and more recently, in the four-part series “Kingdom of David” on PBS.
In 1992/3, he was a fellow of the Annenberg Research Institute in Philadelphia where he was part of a research team working on the unpublished scrolls. Together with a colleague, he served as editor-in-chief of the Oxford Encyclopedia of the Dead Sea Scrolls (2000).
