Item description for Recalling a Story Once Told: An Intertextual Reading of the Psalter and the Pentateuch by John S. Vassar...

This book investigates the intertextual relationship between the Psalter and the Pentateuch. Intertextuality is a reading methodology that reveals various markers in the Psalter that guide the reader to the Pentateuch. The initial marker discerned guiding the reader from the Psalter to the Pentateuch is the five-fold division of the Psalter. This study then proceeds to examine the relationship between the initial psalm of each book of the Psalter and then exploring its relationship with a text from the five books of the Pentateuch. For example, Psalm 1 is read alongside the book of Deuteronomy, Psalm 42 evokes the book of Numbers, and Psalm 90 is connected with the Book of Exodus. The conclusion of the study looks ahead at the implications of this reading of the text. This book is a sustained, close reading of these important sections of the Hebrew Bible. It will be helpful in any academic setting or as an introduction to either the Book of Psalms or the Pentateuch.
