Der Geist Gottes, 145-94. INTRODUCTION 19 The present book is the beneficiary of Volz's indispensable study. I shall follow Volz in devodng considerable attention to early Jewish conceptions of the nature of the spirit. I have also adapted Volz's diachronic approach to Israelite and early Jewish literature by incorpo­ rating several diachronic analyses of Israelite and early Jewish litera­ ture which illuminate various aspects of the spirit and first century Jewish biblical interpretation.
