JHS - New Article - Russell Hobson, "Jeremiah 41 and the Ammonite Alliance"
- Dear all,
I am glad to announce the recent publication of the following article in the Journal of Hebrew Scriptures (http://www.jhsonline.org):
Journal of Hebrew Scriptures - Volume 10: Article 7 (2010)
Russell Hobson, "Jeremiah 41 and the Ammonite Alliance."
This article explores the possibility that a polemic between disempowered Davidic and emerging Saulide groups motivated the murder of Gedaliah and the 70 pilgrims in Jeremiah 41. The discussion is informed by evidence from the Judean/Aramean settlements at Elephantine and Syene, and an analysis of the role of Ammon as presented here and in the Deuteronomistic History.
