The Descent from the Mountain

Narrative Patterns in Exodus 19-40
  • By Martin Ravndal Hauge
$39.95

This 'close reading' of Exodus 19-40 focuses on the repetition of the 'encounter on the mountain'.

The tension of the narrative is linked to 'the people' as the unlikely heroes of encounter and solved by the divine descent from the divine mountain to the man-made tent. The new situation of permanent encounter is foregrounded by the juxtaposed stories of pre- and post- Sinai journey, and the theme of the 'substitution of Moses' underlines a radical reinterpretation of traditional concepts, inviting the reader to embark on a process of identification.
