King Saul in the Historiography of Judah


Sheffield Academic Press 1991

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


This volume contains a sustained close reading of 1 Samuel 8 to 2 Samuel 1 from a perspective of the intended ancient audience. A conscious effort is made here to read and understand the text through the eyes of an ancient Israelite, to the extent that the worldview and idioms of the late seventh-century BCE Judah can be reconstructed. This study reveals a coherent, carefully developed narrative of Saul’s career as the first king of Israel.
