Item description for Sabbath and Jubilee (Understanding Biblical Themes) by R. H. Lowery & Richard H. Lowery...
Overview "This volume is a welcome addition to the growing body of literature explicating the socio-economic referent in scripture's 'salvation' story by way of the 'jubilee' theme. Lowery concisely but craftily demonstrates how the roots of this theme are developmentally intertwined with the distinctively Hebrew notion of sabbath. While most of his exegetical attention is to the text and context of the Old Testament, he also demonstrates the extended continuity of these themes into the gospels."
