Summary
"In this book, Jonathan Klawans examines the ways in which two distinct biblical conceptions of impurity were interpreted in early Jewish texts. In examining the evolution of ancient Jewish attitudes toward defilement and sin, he sheds light on a fascinating but previously neglected topic." "The first part of this book clarifies the distinction between "ritual" and "moral" impurity in biblical literature. The second part of the book examines the ways in which these two biblical conceptions of impurity were interpreted in ancient Jewish texts, including the Hebrew Bible, Dead Sea Scrolls, rabbinic literature, and the New Testament."--BOOK JACKET
