Writings

  • Book on Poverty and Charity in Roman Palestine, First Three Centuries C.E. (UC Press, 1990), which I reformatted in pdf and epub, with the help of a couple of admirable programs, markdown and pandoc. Now that I have figured out how to make books with notes and foreign languages in epub, I hope to edit a number of sleeping projects. The pagination of this book on Poverty and Charity is different from the printed version. The notes in Hebrew and Greek are nearly complete. The bibliography is comprehensive, but there is no index. Maps need to be redrawn. Two versions, pdf and epub:
  • Taking the Argo to Nineveh: Jonah and Jason Slightly revised version of an article from Judaism, Summer 1995.
  • Jezebel and the widow of Sarepta, a conference paper (Society of Biblical Literature, Edinburgh, July 5, 2006)
  • Seeing and hearing in the Bible:
    a short note on that mixed metaphor (last editing: October 28, 2013).
  • Monotheism and empire, a paper presented to UCSC’s Cultural Studies in 2014.
  • Land tenure and debt in Roman Palestine, a paper given at the Annual Meeting of the Society of Biblical Literature in Atlanta, November 21, 2015.
  • A New Economy: The Eucharist
