Central Sanctuary and Centralization of Worship in Ancient Israel

From the Settlement to the Building of Solomon's Temple
ISBN: 1-59333-157-6
This book provides the first major reinvestigation and reinterpretation of the history of centralization of worship in ancient Israel since de Wette and Wellhausen in the nineteenth century. Old Testament scholarship has thus far relied on the consensus that the book of Deuteronomy is the product of late monarchic Judah (7th century BC). Pitkanen places the biblical material in its archaeological and ancient Near Eastern context and pays special attention to rhetorical analysis. The author suggests that the book of Joshua, as well as its sources (such as Deuteronomy) may have originated as early as before the disaster of Aphek and the rejection of Shiloh.

Innovation in Post-Biblical Hebrew Poetry

A Stylistic Analysis of the Hymns of Qumran
ISBN: 978-1-4632-0705-2
Innovation in Post-Biblical Hebrew Poetry analyzes the style of the hymnic poetry of the Dead Sea Scrolls. Building upon the structuralist foundations of poetic analysis derived by Roman Jakobson, and the system of rhetorical tropes designed by Belgian scholars known as “Group μ,” Jobe examines hymnic poetry from the Rules of the Community, the Thanksgiving Hymns, and the Songs of the Sabbat Sacrifice. Special attention is paid to features of parallelism and to how it varies from biblical models.
