Item description for The Marzeah in the Prophetic Literature: References and Allusions in Light of the Extra-Biblical Evidence (Supplements to Vetus Testamentum) by John McLaughlin...
The marz?a? existed for 3000 years in the Semitic world, but is only mentioned in the First Testament at Amos 6: 7 and Jer 16: 5. Other prophetic texts have been proposed as allusions that do not use the term, but without using any consistent criteria. This study analyzes those allusions in light of the extra-biblical references. The extra-biblical marz?a? references indicate three consistent features: upper-class drinking within a religious context. These elements provide the minimum criteria for evaluatin possible allusions in the books of Amos, Hosea, Isaiah and Ezekiel, plus the direct references at Amos 6: 7 and Jeremiah 16: 5. Combining all known references with the biblical allusions provides a single point of reference for future work on the marz?a?. This volume will be of special value to those interested in ancient Semitic religion.
