Product Description

In this volume of the Two Horizons Old Testament Theological Commentary entitled Robin Parry not only builds on traditional scholarship to interpret the book of Lamentations within its ancient context but also ventures further, exploring how the book can function as Christian Scripture. Parry provides the first systematic attempt to read Lamentations in light of the cross and resurrection - as Israel's Holy Saturday literature, filled with the cries of those caught between the death of Jerusalem at the hands of the Babylonians and its rebirth.

While Lamentations has been sadly neglected by a culture averse to grief and tragedy, this anguished poetry of pain - especially when read through the lens of Christ's agony and death has much to teach us about life, God, and the right response to human suffering.

Publisher's Description

Traditional scholarly commentaries aspire to open up biblical texts in the light of their ancient social and cultural contexts. In this commentary Robin Parry seeks to take the insights of such works seriously yet also move far beyond them by considering Lamentations within ever-expanding canonical and contemporary contexts. How do the words of Lamentations resonate when read in the context of Jeremiah? Or in the contexts of Isaiah 40–55, the New Testament, the history of Christian anti-Semitism, or the suffering of victims today?

The question at the heart of this unusual engagement with the text is “How can Lamentations function as Christian scripture?” Parry argues that the key to answering this question is to follow the ancient liturgical tradition of the church and to see the text in the light of the death and resurrection of Israel’s Messiah — Jesus. According to Parry, Lamentations is Israel’s Holy Saturday literature — the cries of those caught between the death of Jerusalem and its resurrection. In this context Christians are able to make connections between this anguished Israelite poetry, the sufferings of Jesus, and the sufferings of the world.

These biblical-theological links have the potential to open up fresh and imaginative theological, doxological, and pastoral encounters with a sadly neglected biblical book.
