Verbum Now February Preview Resources


For the month of February, Verbum Now members enjoy free access to:

Second Temple Period Collection (19 vols.)

The Second Temple Period Collection culls select academic work from a variety of disciplines in order to fully reveal the importance of this era’s literary output and history. It features titles dedicated to the exposition of single topics, comprehensive histories, and commentaries on specific apocryphal and pseudepigraphal works that were composed during the Second Temple Period.

The Second Temple Period spans from roughly 515 B.C. to 70 A.D. (from the rebuilding of the Temple after the Babylonian exile to the destruction of the Temple by the Romans). This period of time covers both the span between the Old and New Testaments and the time during which nearly all the New Testament events took place. Studying the Second Temple Period, and the literature it produced, is therefore of paramount importance to understanding the cultural and historical background to the Christian scriptures.

The Second Temple Period Collection also includes Lorenzo DiTommaso’s A Bibliography of Pseudepigrapha Research 1850-1999. This substantial volume covers nearly all secondary literature on pseudepigrapha research. A reference work without peer in English, and an invaluable resource for all those interested in the Pseudepigrapha.
