      Dear all,

      I am glad to announce that the Journal of Hebrew Scriptures (http://www.jhsonline.org) has published the following article:

      Journal of Hebrew Scriptures - Volume 9: Article 18 (2009)

      Ernst Axel Knauf

      Observations on Judah’s Social and Economic History and the Dating of the Laws in Deuteronomy


      Nadav Na’aman’s recent dating of the Deuteronomic Law by social history is methodologically seminal, even if I disagree with the substance of his argument. In this article, I advance the case that the care of Deuteronomy for the ‘displaced Judahite” (גר) fits the 6th century much better than the 7th, as Na’aman argues.
