Event "Strangers at the Gate: Biblical Narratives of Israelites and their Neighbors" with Adriane Leveen

Tuesday, October 31, 2017 - 12:00 to 13:30
Building 260, room 216

Throughout the Hebrew Bible, strangers are indispensable to the formation of a collective Israelite identity. In fact, encounters between the Israelites and their neighbors are among the most urgent matters explored in biblical narratives, yet relatively little scholarly attention has been paid to them. This book corrects that imbalance by carrying out close readings of the accounts of Israel’s myriad interactions with surrounding nations.
