The Pentateuch As Narrative

The Pentateuch As Narrative Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Sailhamer presents a scholarly approach to the Pentateuch as the original Jewish readers may have viewed it. Israelites confronted with their lack of genuine faith under the Law were pointed to the hope of a better covenant based on divine faithfulness.

Synopsis:

Most scholars studying the first five books of the Bible either attempt to dissect it into various pre-pentateuchal documents or, at the very least, analyze Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy as separate, self-contained documents. The Pentateuch As Narrative focuses on the narrative and literary continuity of the Pentateuch as a whole. It seeks to disclose how the original Jewish readers may have viewed this multivolume work of Moses. Its central thesis is that the Pentateuch was written from the perspective of one who had lived under the Law of the Covenant established at Mount Sinai and had seen its failure to produce genuine trust in the Lord God of Israel. In this context, the Pentateuch pointed the reader forward to the hope of the New Covenant, based on divine faithfulness.

Synopsis:

This unique commentary on the Pentateuch focuses on the narrative as it stands, rather than on the historical backgrounds.
