(p.144) 7 Legal Exegesis With Covert Citations in Historical Sources
Biblical Interpretation in Ancient Israel

Michael Fishbane (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

Treats legal exegesis with covert citations in the historical sources. A detailed methodology is developed to show how ambiguous or unclear rules were taken up and revised in the later legal tradition of ancient Israel. In many cases, this involves comparison of the later legal formulations with those in the Pentateuch, with close attention being given to stylistics, nuances, and interpolations. Numerous rules that were reinterpreted with the Hebrew Bible (like the onset of counting of weeks to Pentacost; the scope of the second Passover), were still subject to interpretation in the diverse exegetical traditions of early Judaism.

Keywords:   embedded exegesis, interpolations
