  • Isaiah's Political Messageby Olof Bäckersten

    Mohr Siebeck 2008; US$ 67.06

    Hauptbeschreibung Scholars have traditionally identified two fundamental, and somewhat separate, discourses in Isaiah 1-39. In what might be labelled the social-critical discourse, we supposedly encounter a prophet who condemns the Jerusalemite elite for their complacent attitudes and decadent life-style in general, and for their more or less systematic... more...

  • Divine Substitutionby Stephen L. Ph.D. Herring

    Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht 2013; US$ 50.71

    HauptbeschreibungDivine Substitution is an investigation of ancient conceptualizations of divine presence. Specifically, this thesis investigates the possibility that the ancient Mesopotamian conceptualization of cultic and royal statues, thought to actually manifest the presence of gods and kings, can likewise be found in ancient Israel. Despite the... more...

  • God's Word Omittedby Juha Pakkala

    Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht 2013; US$ 73.25

    HauptbeschreibungThe book investigates omissions in the textual transmission of the Hebrew scriptures. Literary criticism (Literarkritik) commonly assumes that later editors only expanded the older text; omissions would not have taken place. This axiom is implied in analyses and introductions to the methodology. The book investigates the validity of... more...

    Oxford University Press 1996; US$ 109.99

    This comprehensive examination of the ideology of the biblical author J. (the Yahwist), writer of the oldest narrative sections of Genesis, Exodus and Numbers, explains how the ancient viewpoint is relevant to modern attempts to frame a theology of ecology. more...

  • War in the Hebrew Bibleby Susan Niditch

    Oxford University Press 1995; US$ 42.00

    Dealing with a wide spectrum of war ideologies in the Hebrew Bible, this study seeks to discover why and how these views might have made sense to biblical writers. It challenges the stereotype of the "violent" Old Testament. more...

  • Peshat and Derashby David Weiss Halivni

    Oxford University Press 1998; US$ 60.00

    This text offers an explanation in this text for the willingness of the early sages to attribute to scripture meanings not suggested in the text itself. The author posits a sharp discontinuity between what the sages considered a valid meaning and our own modern understanding of textual meaning. more...

  • Writing on the Tablet of the Heartby David M. Carr

    Oxford University Press 2005; US$ 34.99

    Explores a model for the production, revision, and reception of Biblical texts as Scripture. Building on the studies of the oral/written interface in medieval and Greco-Roman contexts, this book argues that in ancient Israel, Biblical texts emerged as a support for an educational process in which written and oral dimensions were intertwined. more...

  • Pseudo-Philoby Frederick J. Murphy

    Oxford University Press 1993; US$ 119.99

    This is a systematic literary treatment of Pseudo-Philo DS, which is a reinterpretation of the Hebrew Bible by a Palestinian Jew of the 1st century AD, and an important source of information about Jews of that period. The volume includes a concordance of the original Latin text. more...

  • Stories in Scripture and Inscriptionsby Simon Parker

    Oxford University Press 1997; US$ 109.99

    This book compares a variety of biblical narratives with the stories found in several Northwest Semitic inscriptions from the ancient kingdom of Judah and its contemporary Syro-Palestinian neighbors. In genre, language, and cultural context, these epigraphic stories are closer to biblical narratives than any other ancient Near Eastern narrative corpus.... more...

  • "Why Ask My Name?"by Adele Reinhartz

    Oxford University Press 1998; US$ 94.99

    Anonymous characters, such as Lot's wife, are common in the Hebrew Bible, appearing in a variety of roles. This book examines whether there is a "poetics of anonymity", if so, what its contours are, and how anonymity affects readers' responses to unnamed characters, particularly female characters. more...
