- 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 3 (2011)
Martha E. Campos, Structure and Meaning in the Third Vision of Amos (7:7–17)
This article argues that meaning in Amos’s third vision is encoded in its structure and poetics. The dynamic of a chiasm in vv 11c–17 simulates the vision’s object and metaphor: the tin wall. Built on concepts from Kings and Jeremiah, the whole text is deuteronomistic. A variety of known difficulties in Amos 7:7–17 are addressed (e.g., the solution to the wordplay, Amos’s denial, the anomaly of the Amaziah narrative, the lack of reference to Assyria, and Jeroboam’s relationship to the sword).
