From the Pen of the Most Profound Biblical Scholar of the Past Century 10 febbraio 2009
Di Bay Gibbons - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile
The Gate of Heaven is a reprinted edition of Margaret Barker's seminal study on the inextricable link between the first Temple worship of ancient Israel and Judah and the worldview and scriptural writings of the first Christians. The themes of the First Temple(that is, the liturgy, sacrifices, economy, literature and belief structure centered upon Solomon's Temple, which was largely destroyed during the reign of Zedekiah in about 590 B.C.E.) is clearly shown as the dominant motif of the New Testament writers. It permeates and informs everything about early Christianity, from the most central of Christ's teachings to the writings and teachings of the surviving apostles.

This long-neglected connection has vast ramifications for the belief structures of most of Christendom. Ms. Barker's later works, including The Great High Priest: The Temple Roots of Christian Liturgy, Temple Themes in Christian Worship and The Older Testament: The Survival of Themes from the Ancient Royal Cult in Sectarian Judaism and Early Christianity explore this vast and long overlooked world. The results are stunning to a lifetime student of scripture, like the undersigned. Once the temple connections are illuminated, it is hard to find a page of scripture from either the Tanakh or the Greek New Testament which is not literally permeated with Temple themes.

A word of caution to the Christian reader who may have strong and deeply felt feelings about the perfection or immutibility of Holy Scripture--Barker's work presumes that there have been alterations, both intentional and unintentional, to the corpus of scripture over the past two and a half millenia, most notably following the Temple purges of Josiah in the seventh century B.C.E., when she argues the fundamental worship structure of Judah was irrevocably altered, and then again following the death of the early Apostles, when the Temple connections of Christ's teachings was suppressed and intentionally masked by clergymen who for many reasons wanted to distance themselves from the Temple.

This book, and indeed all of Margaret Barker's books, could not earn a higher recommendation from this reader. If the reader finds this work too difficult for introductory purposes, I recommend instead the highly accessible and beautifully written (and fairly short)Temple Theology.

Academic but approachable, PROFOUND 11 settembre 2010

This was my first foray into M. Barker's prolific writings.
IT IS INCREDIBLE: Profound; insightful; inspiring.
This book has an academic flair, but is easy to read for most laity. It seems to strike a balance between fluff and academic. In other words, it had plenty of suppport for its claims, but I didn't get bored in the footnotes

It is incredibly insightful about the ancient Temple and its symbolism. These symbols continue today in Judaism, Christianty and Islam. I wrote notes in the pages, underlined and reread. I found myself shaking my head with surprise and insight. I felt my eyes were opened to my own religious practices over and over. I actually said, "WOW!" outloud while reading it and would quote parts to friends I was so fascinated.
I found myself very inspired and intrigued by her study of ancient symbols. I continued on to read most of her other books. Most are equally insightful, but this is a shorter, more approachable text for most.
If you have a basic understanding of the ancient temple or judeo-christian symbolism, this will be interesting and a must read. If this is your first book on these subjects, you might need to start with more of a survey or lighter introduction.

Solomon's Temple Explained 29 giugno 2012

This was my third book by the author and I've enjoyed her writing because she seems sincere in her quest for understanding the history of Palestine and its scripture; she's not trying to prove a dogma or tradition, but appears to offer her unbiased appraisal of the subject. Her conclusions shake the foundations as the Temple Judaism she uncovers is mystical, visionary, and monolatrist and the Christology angelic as well as Trinitarian. Her encyclopedic knowledge of Jewish and Christian writings of late antiquity often makes her worth reading just for the arcane tidbits she dredges out of that vast store. Her insights into the early Gnostics are fascinating, as she convincingly maps the origins of some of those ideas and their place in the evolution of Christian thought. Her insights and opinions always appear respectful of the material, but her conclusions are unflinching.
I find her prose enjoyable and easily accessible; I don't have to use a dictionary when I read her.
I expected this book would feature some illustrations, renderings or artist's impressions of the First Temple but I was disappointed. We learn a lot about the liturgy and the legacy thereof--loved all that--but ultimately I want to be spoon-fed these ideas if I'm being honest. I'd love to see an epic film or cable series based on her proposal of what transpired in ancient Israel.
