      Dear all, I am glad to announce the publication of the following article in the Journal of Hebrew Scriptures (http://www.jhsonline.org). Journal of Hebrew
      Message 2 of 5 , Nov 15, 2011
        Dear all,


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

        Journal of Hebrew Scriptures – Volume 11: Article 15
        (2011)

        Jeffrey Stackert, “Compositional Strata in the Priestly
        Sabbath: Exodus 31:12-17 and 35:1-3”

        Abstract:

        This article challenges the conclusions of recent studies
        that have attributed the entirety of Exodus 31:12–17 and
        35:1–3 either to a Holiness (H) author or another
        post-Priestly author. It offers a new redactional analysis
        of these Sabbath texts, arguing that each contains an
        earlier Priestly (P) stratum that was subsequently expanded
        by H. It identifies a P stratum by giving close attention to
        the narrative features in these pericopes and their
        participation in the larger historical claims of P.
        Attention to such narrative qualities is then usefully
        combined with stylistic and theological elements to identify
        the secondary stratum in these units as an H composition.

        Dear All, I am glad to announce the publication of a new article in the Journal of Hebrew Scriptures (http://www.jhsonline.org/index.html). Wolfgang OSWALD,
        Message 3 of 5 , May 26, 2012
          Dear All,

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

          Wolfgang OSWALD, “Foreign Marriages and Citizenship in
          Persian Period Judah.”

          Abstract: The prohibition of foreign marriages in the HB
          disqualifies both, wives and their offspring. Similar laws
          from Greek cities suggest that membership in the popular
          assembly was the problem behind, since sons of citizens
          gained citizenship rights when of age. Wealthy people were
          able to enhance their stance by marrying several wives. The
          parallel development suggests that Persian period Israel was
          organized like Greek cities: as an association of persons.
          Such polities need to control membership.

          Dear All, I am glad to announce the publication of a new article in the Journal of Hebrew Scriptures (http://www.jhsonline.org/index.html): Alexander ANDRASON,
          Message 4 of 5 , Jul 17, 2012
            Dear All,


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

            Alexander ANDRASON, “Making It Sound—The Performative
            Qatal and Its Explanation.”

            Abstract: The performative sense of the qatal is compatible
            with the remaining components of the semantic load offered
            by the gram. Employing a chaining procedure built on the
            framework of universal paths and adopting a cognitive
            perspective whereby the verbal meaning is a network of
            conceptually and diachronically related senses, the author
            demonstrates that since the qatal is defined as a
            manifestation of an anterior cline and since it is possible
            to posit a performative stage on this trajectory, the
            anterior cline may also accommodate the performative sense.
