Since the middle of the previous century, the emphasis on synchronical approaches increased and the traditional historical critical understanding of the Pentateuch was put under great pressure. At the beginning of the 21st century there is much more of an awareness that both approaches must come into play. This book explores the possibilities of these views for the study of the Pentateuch. It also illuminates the way in which South Africans have reflected on this problem in the past as well as in the present. Series editors are: Claudia Camp and Andrew Mein, formerly "Journal for the Study of the Old Testament Supplement A" book series that features original and creative approaches to the interpretation of Old Testament literature. The Bible in the 21st Century series, a part of "JSOTS", seeks to examine contemporary authoritative and cultural meanings of bibles by focusing on the processes of transmission, readership and actualization of biblical texts up to and including the twenty-first century. The series explores issues related to contemporary culture and the place of the bible and religion within it. Copenhagen International Seminar is also part of "JSOTS".
