The Concept of Intention in the Old Testament, Philo of Alexandria and the Early Rabbinic Literature

A study in human intentionality in the area of criminal, cultic and religious and ethical law.
ISBN: 978-1-59333-653-0
Does God take into account only the physical act, or does He also consider intention? Does inward motivation truly matter in the areas of criminal or cultic law? Were there differences between the biblical, hellenistic and rabbinic views on intention? This book explores what the Old Testament, Philo, and the early Rabbis thought about human intentionality in a legal context.
