Empire-critical and postcolonial readings of Revelation are now
commonplace, but scholars have not yet put these views into
conversation with Jewish trauma and cultural survival strategies.
In this book, Sarah Emanuel positions Revelation within its ancient
Jewish context. Proposing a new reading of Revelation, she
demonstrates how the text's author, a first century CE Jewish
Christ-follower, used humor as a means of resisting Roman power.
Emanuel uses multiple critical lenses, including humor, trauma, and
postcolonial theory, together with historical-critical methods.
These approaches enable a deeper understanding of the Jewishness of
the early Christ-centered movement, and how Jews in antiquity
related to their cultural and religious identity. Emanuel's volume
offers new insights and fills a gap in contemporary scholarship on
Revelation and biblical scholarship more broadly.
