James N. Rhodes reassesses the theology of the Epistle of Barnabas, seeking to reopen the question of the author's view of Israel. He claims that recent scholarship has focused too narrowly on Barnabas's treatment of the golden-calf incident, overlooking the author's equally strong interest in the death of Jesus and the destruction of Jerusalem.
Contents include: What Really Happened at Sinai?, The Temple Question, Barnabas, Deuteronomy, and the Deuteronomistic Tradition, The Vitality of the Deuteronomistic Tradition (I): Contemporary Jewish Texts, The Vitality of the Deuteronomistic Tradition (II): Early Christian Texts, They were Not Found Worthy.
