In Portraits of a Mature God, Mark McEntire traced the narrative improvement of the divine personality within the previous testomony, putting the God portrayed on the finish of that lengthy tale on the middle of theological dialogue. He confirmed that Israel’s knowing of God had constructed right into a advanced, multipurpose being who may paintings inside of a brand new truth, a global that integrated a semiautonomous province of Yehud and a burgeoning Mesopotamian-Mediterranean global within which the Jewish humans lived and moved in a growing to be variety of the way. Now, McEntire maintains that tale past the narrative finish of the Hebrew Bible as Israel and Israel’s God moved into the Hellenistic international. The “narrative” McEntire perceives within the apocryphal literature describes a God conserving and guiding the scattered and persecuted, a God responding to anguish in insurrection, and a God disclosing mysteries, but additionally hidden within the symbolism of desires and visions. McEntire right here presents a coherent and compelling account of theological views within the apocryphal writings and beyond.
