      Dear all,

      This is just to let you know that the Journal of Hebrew Scriptures
      (
      http://www.jhsonline.org) has recently published the two following
      contributions:

      (1) Keith Bodner, "Crime Scene Investigation: A Text-Critical Mystery
      and the Strange Death of Ishbosheth"

      Abstract

      The troublesome reign of Ishbosheth comes to a graphic conclusion when
      he is assassinated - audaciously, at midday while reclining on a couch
      in his own house - by two of his own captains, the brothers Rechab and
      Baanah. That Ishbosheth is assassinated (while sleeping in his house at
      high noon) there is no doubt: the guilty confess, are charged, and duly
      executed. But the puzzle is how exactly the murder takes place - and
      this is subject of my analysis - as there are significant discrepancies
      between the Hebrew and Greek texts. This article surveys a number of
      "solutions" posited by scholars and evaluate various attempts that have
      been made to resolve this text-critical mystery. I then move toward a
      conclusion by summarizing the key differences between the MT and LXX in
      this passage and discussing some of the literary implications that
      emerge when these textual trajectories are compared. As a witness to the
      murder, the LXX provides an exciting and compelling testimony, but the
      MT account features several important details that cannot be ignored in
      light of the larger storyline.

      John Barton, Oracles of God: Perceptions of Prophecy in Israel after the
      Exile (London: Darton, Longman and Todd, 1986)

      Abstract

      This conversation with John Barton, Oracles of God: Perceptions of
      Prophecy in Israel after the Exile (London: Darton, Longman and Todd,
      1986) began in a special session of the research program "Israel and the
      Production and Reception of Authoritative Books in the Persian and
      Hellenistic Periods" that was held at the annual meeting of the European
      Association of Biblical Studies (Vienna, 2007). It includes an
      introduction by the editor and contributions by Philip R. Davies, James
      Kugel, Hindy Najman and a response by John Barton.
