Item description for Literary Artistry in Leviticus (Biblical Interpretation Series, Vol 35) by Wilfried Warning...
This study explores the vocabulary employed in the extant text of "Leviticus". The chosen methodology of rhetorical analysis (with an emphasis upon terminological patterns) shows a carefully composed text. The basic working hypothesis that "Leviticus" has been artistically structured around 37 divine speeches ("and the Lord spoke/sad to Moses (and Aaron)") with chapter 16 as its possible structural and theological centre has been substantiated both on the microstructural and macrostructural levels. The plethora of significant micro- and macrostructural terminological patterns suggests original literary cohesiveness and hence single-handed authorship. These findings are of special significance regarding the so-called "P" and "H" passages, a "layer of priestly reworking", and, even more, the exegesis and theology of "Leviticus".
