New directions and fresh insight for scholars and students


The single greatest catalyst and contributor to our developing understanding of priestly literature has been Jacob Milgrom (1923–2010), whose seminal articles, provocative hypotheses, and comprehensively probing books vastly expanded and significantly altered scholarship regarding priestly and related literature. Nineteen articles build on Milgrom’s work and look to future directions of research. Essays cover a range of topics including the interpretation, composition and literary structure of priestly and holiness texts as well as their relationships to deuteronomic and extra-biblical texts. The book includes a bibliography of Milgrom’s work published between 1994 and 2014.

Features:

  • Comparisons with Mesopotamian Hittite texts
  • Essays from a diverse group of scholars representing a variety of backgrounds, perspectives, and methodologies
  • Charts and tables illustrate complex relationships and structures
