      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 9 (2011)

      Ellen van Wolde and Robert Rezetko, "Semantics and the Semantics of ברא: A
      Rejoinder to the Arguments Advanced by B. Becking and M. Korpel"

      Abstract:

      Becking and Korpel argued that ברא should be construed as “to construct.”
      Van Wolde and Rezetko respond to their arguments with a critical review of
      earlier biblical studies, reflections on biblical and extra-biblical
      semantics including studies of verbs expressing “separation-events,”
      etymological studies including evidence from Samaritan texts, and a more
      complete analysis of various Biblical Hebrew verbs and proper names. These
      studies lead to the conclusion that Van Wolde's proposal that ברא should be
      construed as “to spatially separate” remains a viable explanation for the
      semantics of this verb.
