  • A Reevaluation of the Semitic Direct Object Markers
    • Abstract: Although verbal objects were originally marked with the accusative case in Semitic, several languages developed independent morphemes to mark the object of a transitive verb, which in some cases functioned alongside the accusative case.1 Scholars have long debated the relationship between the similar-looking Modern South Arabian, Ge’ez, Arabic, Aramaic, Samalian, Hebrew, and Phoenician direct object markers. Many favor a maximal interpretation linking most, if not all, such forms despite clear phonological differences.2 In this paper, I will take a more minimalistic approach. I argue that the direct object markers in Aramaic and the Canaanite languages derive from a single innovative form, which I reconstruct as ... Read More

  • Comments on the Uses and Meanings of אין in the Masoretic Text of the
           Hebrew Bible: Revisiting Vriezen
    • Abstract: In 1977, the renowned Dutch Old Testament scholar, Theodorus Christiaan Vriezen, contributed to the Festschrift of Alexander Reinard Hulst an article on the uses and meanings of the Hebrew particle .1 A particular gloss for אין in Holladay’s abridged English version of Koehler and Baumgartner’s Lexicon in Veteris Testamenti Libros (KBL) provided the impetus for Vriezen’s contribution. Vriezen noticed that in Holladay’s version of the Lexicon, אין is given the meaning “absence,” whereas the gloss in KBL is “Nichtvorhandensein.”2 He surmised that this is evidently an attempt to avoid the usual English equivalent for אין, namely, “non-existence.” He wondered, however, whether this attempt to steer clear of the ...

  • Translating the Hebrew Bible from Hebrew into Hebrew
    • Abstract: Although available in virtually every living language, as well as in several dialects of many languages, the Hebrew Bible has not been translated—until recently—into Modern Hebrew. The book titled תנ״ך רם (Tanak Ram) alters that reality.1 Published by the Israeli company Rekhes, this “translation” from Biblical to Modern Hebrew was initiated by Rafi Moses and completed by a single individual, the Israeli (Polish-born) pedagogue and Bible scholar Avraham Ahuvyah. Before this project, Ahuvyah was probably best known for his very brief commentary on the entire Bible, often referred to as צה״ל תנ״ך ‘IDF Tanak’ because it used to be distributed among military recruits.2The published volumes of this highly controversial ...

  • Style Switching in the Speech of Transjordanians
    • Abstract: Among the advancements of biblical scholarship in recent years is the discovery that the biblical writers stylistically represented the regional speech of foreign characters in biblical prose. S. A. Kaufman has called this phenomenon “style-switching.”1 Most of the articles written on the topic have focused on the direct speech recorded for Arameans and the majority of examples of style switching have been found in this speech, in part due to the fact that we know Aramaic better than any other language (apart from Hebrew) represented in the Hebrew Bible.2 But is biblical style switching limited to Arameans in the Hebrew Bible, or does it also occur in the speech of other foreigners such as the Transjordanians?3 The ...

  • “Like Arrows in the Hand of the Warrior, So Are Youths”: Reading
           Ishmael’s Expulsion in Genesis 21 in Light of Hermann Hesse’s
           Siddhartha
    • Abstract: Two different reading approaches to literature in general and biblical literature in particular are sheltered under the umbrella term of “intertextuality.” Patricia Tull distinguishes between these approaches by referring to them as “traditionalist” and “radical intertextualist.”1The more conservative “traditionalist approach” perceives the analogy between two narratives as the author’s intention of enriching his or her work by inviting its reading against another textual backdrop. The more “radical” school sees intertextuality as the fundamental notion that neither the reader nor the author is able to approach or generate text free of associations, and every text is written or read within a certain literary and ...

  • A Single Combat Type-Scene in the Hebrew Bible?
    • Abstract: For G. L. M., a mighty Philistine warrior in his own right.Why do the David-Goliath and Hezekiah-Sennacherib narratives share so many similarities? The comparison itself may at first blush seem unusual: the folkloristic story of the young David slaying a giant and a historical account of Sennacherib’s campaign to Judah would seem to belong to two very different worlds. Certainly, since Otto Procksch identified a set of similarities between the two narratives in 1930, his observations have not been widely appreciated.1 Commentaries on Samuel, Kings, and Isaiah have routinely overlooked the parallels that he drew.2 To the extent that these similarities have been mentioned at all in recent decades, scholars have ...

  • Jeremiah: Fortified City, Bronze Walls, and Iron Pillar against the Whole
           Land
    • Abstract: God punctuated Jeremiah’s call in Jer 1:18–19 with the metaphors מִבְצָר עִיר ‘fortified city’, עַמּוּד בַּרְזֶל ‘iron pillar’, and חֹמוֹת נְחֹשֶׁת ‘bronze walls’. God also promised, “I am with you…to deliver you” (v. 19b). Most scholars read these metaphors in terms of divine encouragement and promise to deliver the prophet and consequently, interpret them as encouragement.1 Few exegetes emphasize the significance of Jeremiah being fortified against his opponents, the violence he experienced at the hands of the community.2 This article offers the modified view that the metaphors in question portray primarily the warlike nature of Jeremiah’s ministry and only secondarily offer encouragement and a promise of ...

  • A Re-Examination of Ezekiel’s Prophetic Word Formulas
    • Abstract: Ezekiel stands out among prophetic books with regard to a wide range of formulas employed in it and the high frequency of their occurrence. Thus, the prophetic utterance formula נְאֻם־אֲדֹנָי יְהוִה ‘utterance of the Lord Yhwh’ occurs twice in Isaiah (3:15; 56:8), four times in Jeremiah (2:19, 22; 49:5; 50:31), but eighty-one times in Ezekiel.1 Another example: the messenger formula ‘thus says the Lord Yhwh’ is employed at least 120 times in Ezekiel.2 In addition to their regularity, a rich variety of formulas, such as the covenant formula, oath formula, recognition formula, self-introduction formula, and Yhwh revelatory formula, appear in the book.3 Altogether, there are over 300 formulaic expressions in its 48 ...

  • Rabbi Yosef Ben Salih’s Moral Rebuke Concerning the Events of 1724

    • Abstract: Two moral rebukes concerning the disaster that befell the Jewish community in Sanaa, the capital of Yemen, in 1724 have been published so far—a long piece written by Rabbi Said Tsadi (סעיד צעדי) and a shorter one by Salih ben Yihye (Maharis).1 In this article, I shall present another moralizing response to the same events composed by Yosef, the son of the aforementioned Rabbi Salih, against its historical background—the severe famine that caused an unprecedented number of Yemenite Jews to convert to Islam.Yosef ben Salih’s work is found in a manuscript copied in the early seventeenth century. Overall, the manuscript is a two-volume parashah (Torah with Aramaic Targum and Saadyah Gaon’s Tafsir) commissioned by ... Read More

  • The Lost Princess, A Tale by Rabbi Nachman of Breslav: Reparation of the
           Soul and the Power of Yearning
    • Abstract: The motif of longing for something beloved, eternal, and ideal is discernable to some degree or other in most of the tales by Rabbi Nachman of Breslav (1772–1810), the founder of Breslav Hasidism. Oron and Haidenberg state that in all of them the protagonists are searching and yearning for “something,” and it is only the object of the quest in each story that is different, at least ostensibly.1 The tale in which this motif appears to be most conspicuous is The Heart and The Spring, in The Seven Beggars, a moving account of the mutual yearning and longing between the titular characters.2The Lost Princess, written in 1806, has a special status.3 To begin with, it is the opening tale of the compendium.

  • The Old Testament and Judaism in the Last Anglican Sermons of John Henry

    • Abstract: The amount of studies dealing with the life and ideas of the prominent Anglican and later Catholic theologian John Henry Newman (1801–1890) is enormous, and the stream of new books and articles shows no signs of abating.1 For twelve years, from 1833 to 1845, he was the indisputable leader of the so-called Oxford movement in the Church of England that heavily influenced its subsequent evolution; out of approximately ninety “Tracts for the Times”—the movement’s main mouthpiece (which is why it is also known as Tractarian)—about thirty were written by him. Newman’s conversion to Roman Catholicism in 1845 has long been considered the terminus of the Oxford movement, although currently this opinion is being contested. ... Read More

Through a synchronic grammatical approach, Israeli Hebrew emerges as a legitimate layer of Hebrew that should not be considered a new language.1 This Hebrew is treated as a living spoken language whose study is not restricted to letter sequences in written texts or to the orthography of sacred books. It should be investigated like any other normal living language, making use of linguistic concepts, methods, and tools. Even when dealing with data from written corpora, the linguist must always regard the structure of the spoken language as the overall model preceding the written material.Here we ... Read More

  • Hebrew Nominal Patterns in the Speaker’s Mind

All linguists ever since have agreed that the rules of language are anchored somewhere in ... Read More

  • “The Chosen People” or “As All Nations”: The Secularization Shift
           from a Semantic Perspective
    • Abstract: Many Hebrew linguists consider the transition of Hebrew words from a sacred to a secular usage as a reflection of processes in Israeli reality, namely of social factors, which in themselves are extra-lingual, reflected in changes of meaning in language. However, we must distinguish between the lexicon—its words and the relationship between them as reflecting this reality (including social phenomena such as secularization)—and the semantic-linguistic description. As we demonstrate here, this distinction shows that there is no semantic justification for a special “secularization shift.” An examination of words whose denotation relates to this process of secularization (which is depicted as social) in general ...

His books add up to more than fifty, although admittedly some are collections or adaptations of previously published material. Also, he is one of the most widely translated Israeli authors, being particularly successful in the German-speaking world. This large and influential oeuvre, offering a penetrating and continuous satirical commentary on Israeli society in its formative years, merits discussion and analysis on various planes. Chief among them is the thematic one. Given that Kishon was a staunch and resolute (though not incapable of self-humor) pro-capitalist in a society governed by a powerful socialist ... Read More

One example was the Jerusalem community. New Testament scholars have long held that this community, headed by Yaakov (James), was (1) primarily composed of Jesus-believing Jews who (2) remained within the bounds of Second Temple Judaism, and (3) strictly lived according to the Torah (Acts 15:4–5; 21:20–21).

In its opening description of the Messianic Jewish movement, the document treats the missionary organization “Jews for Jesus” as the prototypical expression of Messianic Judaism and views the founder of that organization—Martin (Moishe) Rosen—as the seminal figure in the movement’s emergence:This idea [i.e., Messianic Judaism] was originally promulgated by Martin Rosen in 1973. Rosen was born a Jew but converted to Christianity and became a Baptist minister. He led a mission to convert other Jews, but when he found that they were not ... Read More

The essays in the first section of the book are penned by Messianic Jewish scholars and leaders; the second includes a number of chapters written by “Gentile Christians,” as they are called in the book, who specialize in New Testament studies.

In the last decade, Messianic intellectuals have developed more independent understandings of their movement in relation to the Christian and Jewish traditions. Some of them have come up with declarations of independence from evangelical missionary patronage. In 2005, Mark Kinzer, a leader and theologian of Hashivenu, an avant-garde branch of Messianic Judaism that wishes to give more voice and space to traditional Jewish thought and lore, published a dramatic book, Post-Missionary Messianic Judaism, which ...

She brings a combination of “literary, social-scientific, psychoanalytical, feminist, and ideological-critical approaches” to bear on the material (p. 9). The volume’s first chapter, “The Father and His Daughter,” is divided into two parts. The first covers terminology, including av ‘father’ and bat ‘daughter’. Av can refer to a physical male parent, God as a metaphorical father, the head of a household, and the forefather of a skill, pointing to a wide range of nuances for the term. Likewise, bat has a broad range of ... Read More
