The book of Amos as composed and read in antiquity

by Aaron W Park | 13 July 2001
Hardback
The Book of Amos as Composed and Read in Antiquity treats the redaction of the Book of Amos and the history of its reception in Second Temple period works including the Septuagint, the Dead Sea Scrolls, and some early Christian and Rabbinic Jewish literature. The first part of this book employs form- and redaction-critical methods. From a synchronic analysis, it attempts to establish a literary structure, genre, setting, and intention with respect to the present form of the Book of Amos. A diachronic analysis attempts to uncover earlier literary-redactional layers based on a set of controlled criteria characterized by literary uniqueness. The second part is a study on Nachleben (living tradition) and employs Comparative Midrash in sensu lato. This book draws the reader's attention to many differing voices documented among the various believing communities in antiquity.
