Description

This study considers the historical, cultural, and literary significance of one of the vital most vital Ancient Near East (ANE) texts that light up the Hebrew Bible. Christopher B. Hays provides number one texts from the Ancient Near East with a comparison to literature of the Hebrew Bible to demonstrate how Israel’s Scriptures not only draw from these ancient contexts but also reshape them in a unique way.

Hays offers a brief introduction to comparative studies, then lays out examples from more than a few literary genres that make clear particular biblical texts. Texts about ANE law collections, treaties, theological histories, prophecies, ritual texts, oracles, prayers, hymns, laments, edicts, and instructions are in comparison to corresponding literature within the Pentateuch, Prophets, and Writings of the Hebrew Bible. The book includes summaries to lend a hand instructors and students identify key points for comparison. By taking into consideration the literary and historical context of other literature, students will come away with a better understanding of the historical, literary, and theological depth of the Hebrew Bible.
