Item description for The Scriptures and the Scrolls: Studies in Honour of A.S. Van Der Woude on the Occasion of His 65th Birthday (Supplements to Vetus Testamentum) by Florentino Garcia Martinez...
The present volume was compiled as a respectful tribute to A.S. van der Woude and presented to him on the occasion of his 65th birthday, which coincided with his retirement as professor of Old Testament and Intertestamental Studies at the University of Groningen, a chair he held for more than thirty years. The title of this Festschrift, The Scriptures and the Scrolls, reflects the two fields of study to which he has devoted his scholarly life, not only by doing research himself, but also by stimulating many of his colleagues to collaborate in publications initiated by him. The contributions, a melange of studies covering the wide range of Van der Woude's interests, have been arranged according to the order: Hebrew Bible (following the sequence of the books), Apocrypha, Dead Sea Scrolls, and Rabbinic Tradition. From the Contents: E. Tov, `4QLevd (4Q26)' C.J. Labuschagne, ``You Shall not Boil a Kid in its Mother's Milk'. A New Proposal for the Origin of the Prohibition.' J.A. Emerton, `The Translation of Isaiah 5,1.' J.T.A.G.M. van Ruiten, `The Intertextual Relationship between Isa 11, 6-9 and Isa 65, 25.' W.A.M. Beuken, `Isa 29, 15-24: Perversion Reverted.' W.
