Product Description

Recent discussion of biblical law sees it either as a response to socio-economic factors or as an intellectual tradition. In either case it is viewed as the product of elites that form an international community drawing on a common culture. This book takes that fundermental discussion a step further by proposing that "law" is an inappropriate term for the biblical codes, and that they represent, rather, the "moral advice" of scribes working independently of the legal framework and appealing to Yahweh as auhtority. Only by prolonged exegesis and through the transformation of Judaean religion does this "advice" take the form of divine law binding on Jews.
