Title: Collective Reinterpretation. FAT II 13 A ...

Publisher: Mohr Siebeck

Binding: Softcover/Paperback

Book Condition: New

Description:

Marko Marttila reevaluates the extent and nature of the collective passages in the Psalter. Many of the complaint psalms written by an individual were reread at a later stage from a national point of view. In the altered religious, political, and social circumstances, the earlier texts were reworked and reinterpreted so that they would comply more closely with the prevailing conditions. This collectivizing tendency probably began during the exile and continued until the final redaction of the Psalter (about 200â"180 BCE). Collective features increased in late exilic and post-exilic theology even outside the Psalter. This can be seen in the national emphases in Lamentations, the nomistic theology of the Deuteronomistic History, and the servant songs of Deutero-Isaiah. It even seems likely that the term mashiach (?the anointed?) has a collective reference in some passages. When the Davidic monarchy no longer existed, it was the people of Israel that became the recipient of the divine promises once given to David and his dynasty. Most of these ancient contributors are unknown to us, but the Hasids at least may have played an important role in this process in its final stage, since there are some obvious passages where the Hasids seem to represent the people of Israel exclusively.
