IECOT: Exodus 1-15 (Helmut Utzschneider, Wolfgang Oswald) / January 01, 2015
Requires Accordance 11.2 or above.
This commentary interprets the first part of the book of Exodus, through 15:21. It features two approaches. On the one hand, the commentary interprets the final form of the traditional Hebrew text “synchronically” by means of form criticism and modern literary methods. On the other hand, it “diachronically” reconstructs the predecessors of the final form, from its origins in an exodus composition that opposes political domination to the text’s final form as a dramatic narrative about the transfer of sovereignty from the Pharaoh to the God of Israel. Concluding syntheses examine the relationship between these two interpretive approaches while adding reflections on traditional and contemporary concerns.
About This Series:
The International Exegetical Commentary on the Old Testament (IECOT) is designed to offer an international, ecumenical and contemporary interpretation of the Old Testament (including deutero-canonical books) to a broad audience of scholars, laypeople, and pastors. IECOT is international: it has editorial board members and authors from North America, Europe and Israel and all volumes will appear in both English and German.
The main feature of this new commentary series is the interlinkage of both synchronic and diachronic perspectives in analysis of texts. Other emphases include treatment of social-historical background, liberation-theological viewpoints, gender aspects and elements of the history of reception. For the first time in the history of bible commentaries, both a German and an English version are being edited simultaneously. The delay between the respective original and its translated version is expected to be less than two years. The group of editors and authors includes Protestant, Catholic, and Jewish biblical scholars. The scope of the commentary series includes books in the 20pxr Septuagint canon in addition to books of the Hebrew Bible.
The German version of this commentary is also available.
While the available volumes are different, you may also be interested in the 7-volume English set or the 6-volume German set.
