The Jerusalem Academy

  • By Loren R. Fisher
$26.79
($37.00)
Description: This novel tells the story of the scribes who produced the book of Genesis. It is narrated by Keziah, the wife of Jonathan, one of the scribes. They collected the stories and put them together according to a detailed plan. These same scribes worked in the Jerusalem Academy during the time of the Davidic monarchy about 1000 BCE. The scribes understood their work to be a Royal Epic, and it helped bring Judah and Israel together and legitimize the throne of David. This epic was performed at the dedication of David's palace, and it is interesting to note the interplay between the scribes' text and the performance of the minstrels. About the Contributor(s): Loren R. Fisher was Professor of Hebrew Bible at the Claremont School of Theology and Professor of Semitic Languages and Literature at the Claremont Graduate University. He has taught at the University of California at Berkeley and the University of Montana, and is author of Genesis: A Royal Epic (Wipf & Stock, 2011) and coeditor of The Claremont Ras Shamra Tablets.
