The Status of Gath in Micah's Lament for the Cities of Judah (in Hebrew)

This paper, presented in honor of Professor S. Vargon, deals with the inclusion of Gath in Micah's lament for the destroyed towns of Judah in 1:10, in a way that seems to evoke David's lament for Saul and Jonathan in 2 Sam. 1:20. The paper deals with the literary composition of the oracle and assumes that it was composed in connection with Sennacherib's invasion of Judah in 701 B.C.E. The eleven towns listed along with Jerusalem in verses 10-15, all seem to be in the Shephelah of Judah, which makes the inclusion of Gath, presumably the well-known Philistine city, surprising. After surveying...

Philosophical Criticism of the Hebrew Bible and the Analytic-Continental Divide

This article takes a closer look at how the so-called Analytic-Continental divide within meta-philosophy has manifested itself within various forms of " philosophical criticism " of the HB. It is argued that, based on data collected from recent related conferences, there is evidence of influence from both sides of the divide within both broad/narrow and expli-cit/implicit types of philosophical criticism. However, in contrast to tense relations elsewhere in generic philosophy, the interdisciplinary intersection of biblical scholarship, philosophy of religion and Jewish philosophy appears to...

Weeping in Recognition Scenes in Genesis and the Odyssey

Scenes involving weeping in biblical and Homeric literature can be corre­lated with each other and with modem scientific studies of weeping. Seen through the lens of attachment theory, weeping expresses a need for relationship and caregiving arising from pain or sorrow. But so-called tears of joy shed at moments of emotional reunion appear at first not to fit with this understanding. On closer examination, however, moments o f reunion involve emotional memories of loss, grief, and help­lessness. Consequently, tears shed at reunions appear consistent with an attachment-theoretical...

Prose Writing in an Age of Orality: A Study of 2 Sam 5:6-9. VT 66.2 (2016): 261-79.

The brief, cryptic account of Jerusalem's takeover by David in 2 Sam 5:6-9 has elicited a considerable number of historical investigations into what events may have transpired according to this story. But what has received less historical attention is the scribal cul- ture responsible for this text's composition. With this concern in mind, the aim of this study is to approach 2 Sam 5:6-9 as a scribal artifact in an effort to examine how this text took form and what cultural expectations guided its production. What comes to light through this manner of inquiry, I contend, is a text deeply...
