The motif of liturgical communion with the angels appears in early Jewish and New Testament writings. Michael R. Jost examines all relevant passages from the Dead Sea Scrolls and the New Testament exegetically and within traditio-historical developments from the Hebrew Bible to rabbinical texts and the patristic tradition.
The motif of liturgical communion with angels appears in early Jewish and New Testament texts. Michael R. Jost offers the first exegetical analysis of all relevant passages from the Dead Sea Scrolls and the New Testament and places them within traditio-historical developments from the Hebrew Bible to rabbinical and patristic texts. By giving special consideration to the respective performances of liturgical texts, the author reconstructs each groups' experience of angelic communion. In his analysis of the liturgical communion of the yaḥad, Jost presents new insights not only for Qumran researchbut also for New Testament scholarship and the understanding of the early Christian communities and communal liturgies.
