Description :

Language: English . Brand New Book. My Share of God s Reward refers to a quote from Ignatius of Antioch, speaking of the desired compensation for his impending martyrdom. The author investigates the roles and widely varying conceptions of the afterlife presented in early Christian martyrdom accounts and concludes that personal immortality is integral to the functioning of these texts, as the anticipated reward for a martyr s death. Accordingly, the very diverse conceptions of the afterlife presented in them are indicative of the frequently ignored theological diversity and experimental spirit prevalent in both early Christianity and late Second Temple Judaism. The discussion also incorporates a unique definition of martyrdom that recognizes the genealogical and developmental connections between Christian martyrdom and its antecedents.

Synopsis : My Share of God's Reward refers to a quote from Ignatius of Antioch, speaking of the desired compensation for his impending martyrdom. The author investigates the roles and widely varying conceptions of the afterlife presented in early Christian martyrdom accounts and concludes that personal immortality is integral to the functioning of these texts, as the anticipated reward for a martyr's death. Accordingly, the very diverse conceptions of the afterlife presented in them are indicative of the frequently ignored theological diversity and experimental spirit prevalent in both early Christianity and late Second Temple Judaism. The discussion also incorporates a unique definition of martyrdom that recognizes the genealogical and developmental connections between Christian martyrdom and its antecedents.

Critique: "L. Arik Greenberg connects early Jewish and Christian martyrdoms closely with Graeco-Roman noble death traditions and offers a fresh analysis of the nexus of martyrdom and personal immortality." (Jan Willem van Henten, University of Amsterdam) "L. Arik Greenberg has probed all the sources of Early Judaism and Early Christianity, as well as the necessary classical and hellenistic sources to offer a comprehensive view of ancient attitudes toward the noble death and martyrdom. It will serve students well for decades to come as a resource to understand ancient attitudes about martyrdom." (James A. Sanders, Professor Emeritus, Claremont School of Theology and Claremont Graduate University, California)
