A new perspective on editorial activity in the Hebrew Bible for research and teaching
Evidence of Editing lays out the case for substantial and frequent editorial activity within the Hebrew Bible. The authors show how editors omitted, expanded, rewrote, and compiled both smaller and larger phrases and passages to address religious and political change. The book refines the exegetical method of literary and redaction criticism, and its results have important consequences for the future use of the Hebrew Bible in historical and theological studies.
- Hebrew, Greek, and Aramaic examples of editorial activity
- Clear explanations of the distinctions between textual, literary, and redaction criticism
- Fifteen chapters attesting to continual editorial activity in the Torah, the Prophets, and the Writings
