Daily Gleanings: Hebrew Bible (14 October 2019)

New in the Review of Biblical Literature is Jacques van Ruiten’s review of Ziony Zevit’s edited volume, Subtle Citation, Allusion, and Translation in the Hebrew Bible (Equinox, 2017).

Despite some criticisms (6), van Ruiten’s assessment is overall quite positive. He praises the volume’s essays as “hav[ing] a strong methodological focus, while concrete examples are discussed at the same time” (5).

As particular methodological contributions, van Ruiten cites the concepts of “blind motifs” (developed in the essays by David Carr and David Wright) and “narrative tracking” (developed in the contributions of Marc Brettler and Jeffery Leonard; 5).
