Overview

The question of the existence and nature of scribal institutions in ancient Israel has up to now been debated primarily on literary grounds. In placing the question of scribes and schools in a socio-archaeological context, as the present study does, this problem is reformulated. The focus shifts from the question of the prevalence of literary skills to the broader question of the function of those skills within ancient society.

With the Logos Bible Software edition, you have unprecedented access to the most important scholarly material on the history and culture of the ancient Near East in general and Israel in particular. The powerful search tools in your digital library help you locate the specific material relevant to your study. All references to the Old Testament are directly linked to the Hebrew texts in your library, along with your preferred English translations. What’s more, double-clicking any word in any language automatically opens up your preferred lexicons and searches for a match—giving you access to definitions, etymology, and usage examples. These advanced tools make the Logos edition of these important works on Israel’s history an important addition to the libraries of scholars, pastors, and students of the Old Testament.
