Description:

Michael B. Hundley examines the Priestly system designed to keep heaven on earthâ€"more specifically, to secure and safeguard the divine presence at the heart of the Israelite communityâ€"through a comprehensive analysis of its constituent parts. His study examines how the Priestly writers describe the nature of divine presence, elicit that presence and prepare for its arrival, and maintain it through regular service and damage control rites. Rather than comparing individual Priestly rites in isolation from their surrounding contexts, his work compares the Priestly system with various ancient Near Eastern systems (Egyptian, Mesopotamian, Hittite, and Syro-Palestinian). Using a multifaceted approach, Hundley reveals the genius of the Priestly writers lies not in their total originality but in their ability to co-opt elements present in the surrounding cultures and adapt them to serve their own rhetorical purposes.

Book Description Tübingen: Mohr Siebeck, 2011. kart. XVI, 250 S. Neubuch / New Copy // Michael B. Hundley untersucht das Priestertum, das entworfen wurde, um den Himmel auf Erden zu bewahren oder genauer gesagt, um die göttliche Gegenwart im Herzen der israelitischen Gemeinde zu festigen und zu erhalten. Dazu analysiert er die einzelnen Bestandteile des Priestertums. Er zeigt, wie die Priester, die als Schriftsteller tätig waren, das Wesen der göttlichen Gegenwart beschreiben, diese hervorlocken, uns auf seine Ankunft vorbereiten und uns durch den regelmäßigen Gottesdienst an diese erinnern. Statt verschiedene priesterliche Rituale unabhängig von ihrem Kontext zu sehen, vergleicht Michael Hundley das Priestertum mit verschiedenen Systemen des Alten Orients (Ägypten, Mesopotamien, Hittite, Syrien-Palästina). Mithilfe eines breitgefächerten Ansatzes entdeckt Hundley den Genius der priesterlichen Schriftsteller, der nicht in ihrer außerordentlichen Originalität, sondern in ihrer Fähigkeit besteht, Elemente aus den umgebenden Kulturen auszuwählen und sich diese anzueignen, um diese für ihre eigenen rhetorischen Zwecke zu nutzen.
