Description: 

This course undertakes a study of modern critical problems of interpretation in the Book of Exodus. It focuses on establishing a translation, using text-critical apparatus. It examines the rise of source and form criticism as these have been used in the exegesis of Exodus. It analyses the way in which it has been proposed to combine these methods, and the problems inherent in that. It looks at some of the newer efforts to give priority to the deuteronomistic over the priestly hand in the final formation of the book. Canonical interpretation, as seen through a critical engagement with historical methods, will be reviewed (in the Old Testament Library commentary of BS Childs). This will also provide an occasion to examine the benefits/drawbacks of consulting the earlier history of interpretation. Seminar format. Translation of Hebrew and Greek texts. Discussion of secondary readings. Brief seminar papers. Meets Twice a week.
