Description

History and Tradition in Early Israel offers a reconstruction of Israelite tradition based upon a new master paradigm. It is built upon the observation that El and Yahweh were different gods, belonging to two religions and venerated by two peoples living in different regions of Palestine (Israel and Judah). The distinctiveness of the two groups was purposely obscured by various mechanisms intended to unite them under a new collective identity. Based upon this understanding of the socio-religious components of ancient Israel, History and Tradition in Early Israel offers a lucid survey of the history and traditions of Israel's early period (c. 1380-1000 BCE).show more
