Israel in Transition 2

Full Product Description

This title includes essays relating primarily to written sources (inscriptions and biblical text) forming a companion to volume 1 which was primarily on the archaeology of this period. "Israel in Transition 2" is the second in a two-volume work addressing some of the historical problems relating to the early history of Israel, from its first mention around 1200 BCE to the beginnings of the kingdoms of Israel and Judah. During this four century transition period Israel moved from a group of small settlements in the Judean and Samarian hill country to the two kingdoms of Israel and Judah, occupying much of the land on the west side of the Jordan. The present volume engages with the relevant texts. These include various inscriptions, such as the Tel Dan inscription and the Assyrian inscriptions, but also an examination of the biblical text. The articles discuss various individual problems relating to Israelite history, but ultimately the aim is to comment on historical methodology. The debate among Seminar members illustrates not only the problems but also suggests solutions and usable methods.The editor provides a perspective on the debate in a Conclusion that summarizes the contributions of the two volumes together.
