      Dear All,

      I am glad to announce the publication of a new article in
      the Journal of Hebrew Scriptures (http://www.jhsonline.org).

      Paul S. EVANS, “History in the Eye of the Beholder? Social
      Location and Allegations of Racial/Colonial Biases in
      Reconstructions of Sennacherib’s Invasion of Judah”

      Abstract: Studies by A.O. Bellis and H.T. Aubin have
      criticized scholars for failing to acknowledge the role of
      Africans in the ‘deliverance’ of Jerusalem from the
      Assyrian threat in 701 BCE due to racial bias and the
      continuing influence of 19th century colonial scholarship.
      This article examines their arguments in detail and
      demonstrates that the evidence does not support their
      hypothesis. Furthermore, this article considers to what
      extent social location as well as racial and political bias
      affect biblical scholarship, and particularly
      reconstructions of history.
