Mirages in the Desert : The Tradition-historical Developments of the Story of Massah-meribah (Hardcover)
about this item
The story of Massah-Meribah is a pluriform tradition within the Hebrew Bible. This book uses redaction analysis to assess diachronically the six reminiscences of this tradition within Deuteronomy and thereby reconstruct the formative stages of this story's tradition-history. A redactional study of the tradition's narratives in Exod 17:1-7 and Num 20:1-13 corroborates these stages and carries implications for the formation of the Pentateuch.
