Description : This book discusses the first-century implications of applying Old Testament texts about the divine to Jesus. It summarizes recent views on the significance of this practice. It then collects pre-Christian and first-century Jewish parallels, and notices that most centre on the angel, wisdom, glory and word of the Lord, although application to non-divine figures also occurs. The evidence is that some Christians in the 50s worked with a redefinition of monotheism in which they included the Father and Jesus. Such a view explains the New Testament salvation-historical perspective in regard to the Old Testament belief on the theophany of God and the belief in God as the object of invocation.
Description : Errol Flynn set the standard for the modern action hero in films like The Adventures of Robin Hood, Dodge City, and The Sea Hawk. This biography follows Flynn from his birth in Tasmania, Australia, in 1909, to his death in Vancouver, Canada, in 1959. Included is analysis of his films, discussion of the 1943 rape trial that changed his life, a survey of the FBI’s infamous surveillance, and the first detailed account of his television appearances in the 1950s. First-hand interviews with Flynn’s friends and colleagues are complemented by research from FBI files, correspondence, Flynn’s diary, and other sources. Illustrated with rare and previously unpublished photographs, the study also gives attention to the historical backgrounds and cultural influences that contributed to Flynn’s fame; the work takes an objective and analytical look at the actor’s adventurous life. The study includes two appendices: the first is a collection of quotations from various celebrities, from memories of his talent and style to anecdotes about his wild pool parties. The second appendix is a filmography including all Flynn’s work for film, stage, and television, with cast and crew information.
