Altogether 46 essays in honour of Professor Raija Sollamo contribute to explore various aspects of the rich textual material around the turn of the era. At that time Scripture was not yet fixed; various writings and collections of writings were considered authoritative but their form was more or less in transition. The appearance of the first biblical translations are part of this transitional process. The Septuagint in particular provides us evidence and concrete examples of those textual traditions and interpretations that were in use in various communities. Furthermore, several biblical concepts, themes and writings were reinterpreted and actualised in the Dead Sea Scrolls, illuminating the transitions that took place in one faction of Judaism. The topics of the contributions are divided into five parts: Translation and Interpretation; Textual History; Hebrew and Greek Linguistics; Dead Sea Scrolls; and, Present-Day.https://www.filesonic.com/file/VqrsjhO/Scripture_in_Transition_(9004165827).pdfhttps://filepost.com/files/99588be6/Scripture_in_Transition_(9004165827).pdf/
Magnar Kartveit, "The Origin of the Samaritans"
B..LL | 2009-10-31 | ISBN: 9004178198 | 416 pages | PDF | 5,8 MB
Many Bible readers will think that chapter 17 of the second book of Kings refers to the origin of the Samaritans. This understanding of the chapter has its earliest attestation in the works of Josephus. The present book evaluates the methods often used for finding the origin of the Samaritans, makes an assessment of well known and new material, and ventures into some uncharted territory. It is suggested that the moment of birth of the Samaritans was the construction of the temple on Mount Gerizim. This happened in the first part of the fourth century b.c.e. in accordance with the original commandment of Moses in Deut 27:4.https://www.filesonic.com/file/qyQw6Zv/The_Origin_of_the_Samaritans_(9004178198).pdfhttps://filepost.com/files/ed3b2c37/The_Origin_of_the_Samaritans_(9004178198).pdf/
