Journal for the Evangelical Study of the Old Testament (JESOT) is a peer-reviewed journal devoted to the academic and evangelical study of the Old Testament. The journal seeks to meet a need in academia by providing a venue for high-level scholarship on the Old Testament from an evangelical standpoint. The journal is not affiliated with any particular academic institution. With an international editorial board, open-access format, and multi-language submissions, JESOT cultivates and promotes Old Testament scholarship in the evangelical global community. The journal differs from many evangelical journals in that it seeks to publish current academic research in ancient Near Eastern backgrounds, Dead Sea Scrolls, Rabbinics, linguistics, Septuagint, research methodology, literary analysis, exegesis, text criticism, and theology only as they pertain to the Old Testament. JESOT also includes up-to-date book reviews on various academic studies of the Old Testament.
The Logos edition of this resource allows you to navigate articles and issues easily. All Scripture passages link directly to your preferred Bible translations, and important theological concepts link to dictionaries, encyclopedias, and a wealth of other resources in your digital library.
