[Reading] ➱ The Bible with Sources Revealed ➹ Richard Elliott Friedman – Tactical-player.co.uk
What a great book to takes you to some interesting realisations of the development of the Bible Each source is colour coded and it does enable you to gain a sense of who and around what date each section was written It could do with a few notes at the bottom of the text where he spots some interesting explanations for example the different source theory neatly explains how Abraham seems to come from two different places with a later interpolation to try and cover over the reason for this It s probably a translation you may find a little anthropological. One Of The World S Foremost Bible Experts Offers A Groundbreaking Presentation Of The Five Books Of Moses In The Bible With Sources Revealed, Richard Elliott Friedman Offers A New, Visual Presentation Of The Five Books Of Moses Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, And Deuteronomy Unlocking The Complex And Fascinating Tapestry Of Their Origins Different Colors And Type Styles Allow Readers To Easily Identify Each Of The Distinct Sources, Showcasing Friedman S Highly Acclaimed And Dynamic Translation An excellent case for different authors, different traditions, in the Old Testamant This is the definitive case for what is known as The Documentary Hypothesis.The Old Testament divides people, some think it s they very word of God, others are sure it cannot be true, whilst yet others believe that has been superseded, either by the New Statement or the Quran.If this was written by God, it appears to be in emulation how people would write it.Fascinating and well argued. Fantastic Indispensable for anyone studying the OT Thoroughly argued, utterly scholarly, completely convincing Friedman is an extraordinary writer on all aspects of the Bible. Thank you for getting this brilliant and replacement book for me so quickly Very pleased. It is very, very interesting to see how the first five books of the Bible were edited The different fonts and colours are a brilliant way of separating the JEPD and Redactors You still need good eyesight for the green and blue print and in poor light this can sometimes be difficult.I also found the translation peculiar Prof Friedman s use of the future tense is not helpful To take an example at random, from Deut 17 14 When you ll come to the land that YHWH, your God, is giving you, and you ll take possession of it and live in it, and you ll say, Let me set a king over me etc.The Jewish Study Bible,Tanakh translation, is much clearer If, after you have entered the land that the Lord your God has assigned to you, and taken possession of it and settled in it, you decide, I will set a king over me The NRSV reads When you have come into the land that the Lord your God is giving you, and have taken possession of it, and settled in it, and you say, I will set a king over me Can t rate it yet, as currently without a device on which I can read it Please publishers, get an iPad version soon. Book itself is exactly what it says on the package it gives a translated version of the 5 Books of Moses highlighted to indicate the proposed authors under the Documentary Hypothesis The service from Book Depository was excellent The original order was not delivered for reasons that I have never discovered When I let Book Depository know they immediately refunded my payment without question and without delay.I then reordered and the books came within the next few days well within the delivery window Great service.
