In Treaty of the Great King, Kline gives a detailed analysis and strong evidence for supporting the interpretation of Deuteronomy as being a legal document between Israel and YHWH that was patterned after ancient Near Eastern treaties, with Moses as its primary compiler. These studies were foundational in Kline's career as a covenant theologian. Meredith G. Kline (1922-2007) was Professor of Old Testament at Westminster Seminary California. He previously taught at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary and at Westminster Theological Seminary (Philadelphia), from which he received his BD and ThM degrees. He earned is PhD degree in Assyriology and Egyptology under Cyrus Gordon at Dropsie College. He was also an ordained minister in the Orthodox Presbyterian Church. The collection of essays in Creator, Redeemer, Consummator, a festschrift written in honor of Dr. Kline, attests to the indelible influence his work has exerted on contemporary biblical and theological scholarship.
