Hebrew Lexical Semantics and Daily Life in Ancient Israel : What's Cooking in Biblical Hebrew?
about this item
Combining two independent subject areas, Peters looks at the lexical semantics of Hebrew and at daily life in ancient Palestine particularly as related to cooking in the context of the current growing interest in food and cooking during global warming, genetically modified food, and other concerns of the 21st century. Among his topics are the physical context of cooking activities, description of food items, cooking processes, lexemes-concepts, fast food and divine visitors in Genesis 18, a meal turned offering in Judges 6, deceptive slumber and raging fire in Hosea 7:4-9, and whether Tamar has a bun in the oven: what food says about 2 Samuel 13.
