About this product
- DescriptionRatheiser's study provides the framework for a n-confessional, mitzvoth ethics-centered and historical-philological approach to the Jewish Bible and deals with the basic steps of an alternative paradigmatic perspective on the biblical text. The author seeks to demonstrate the ineptness of confessional and historical approaches to the Jewish Bible. Based on his observations and his survey of the history of interpretation of the Jewish Bible, Ratheiser introduces an alternative hermeneutical-exegetical approach to the Jewish Bible: the paradigm of examples. His study concludes that the biblical text is a collection of writings designed and formed from a specifically ethical-ethnic outlook. In other words, he regards the Jewish Bible to be written as an etiology of ancient instruction by ancient Jews to Jews and for Jews. As such, it serves as a religious-ethical identity marker that provides ancient Jews and their descendants with an etiology of Jewish life. Ratheiser regards this religious-ethical agenda to have been the driving force in the minds of the final editors/compilers of the biblical text as we have it today.
