Colour Terms in the Old Testament


JSOT Press 1982

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


Athalya Brenner presents her studies on the role of color in Old Testament texts. Realizing that words themselves are only part of the overall context of Scripture, Brenner examines the literary and semantic significance of color in Hebrew texts. She also writes about development in culture, language, and vocabulary. Brenner looks at the mental associations we have with color and shades, and how they relate to Old Testament writings specifically, giving a in-depth discussion on the characteristics of color and language.
