1. Cox, Kristen Louise. Law and covenant according to the biblical writers.

Degree: MA, Religion, 2010, University of Georgia

The following thesis is a source critical analysis of the law and covenant in the Torah of the Hebrew Bible. Specifically I analyze the presentation of the Israelite Covenant in the Sinai Pericope and in Deuteronomy. I present the argument that, while the biblical writers are influenced by the formula of the ancient Near Eastern treaty documents, they each present different views of what happened at Sinai and what content is contained in the law code which was received there. Advisors/Committee Members: Richard Friedman.

2. Linington, Silvia. The term berith (covenant) in the Historical and Wisdom Books of the Old Testament .

Degree: 2009, University of South Africa

This work is concerned with the word berith (covenant) in the historical and wisdom books of the Old Testament, and continues research done in previous articles on berith in the Pentateuch and the prophetic literature. The main aim is to discuss in some detail the texts containing the word berith in the historical and wisdom books of the Old Testament and to examine the meaning and use of the word in these writings. The interrelationships between berith and other words in the contexts in which they appear are explored and explained. Finally, berith in the historical and wisdom books usually refers to one of the covenants of the Pentateuch, and which of these is applicable in each case will also be discussed. Advisors/Committee Members: Boshoff, W.S (advisor).

Subjects/Keywords: Abrahamic Covenant; Ark of the Covenant; Berith; Breaking the Covenant; Chesed; Covenant in the Chronicler's history; Covenant in the Deuteronomic history; covenant in the Old Testament; Covenant in the Wisdom Books; Covenant; Keeping the Covenant; Sinai Covenant

3. Christian, Mark Alan. Levites and the Plenary Reception of Revelation.

Degree: PhD, Religion, 2011, Vanderbilt University

This project offers comprehensive theory to explain the origin of certain Pentateuchal passages that though few in number contrast sharply with the dominant traditions regarding the divine revelation at Mt. Sinai/Horeb. In the exegetical analyses of the germane passages, literary-historical and redactional models have been brought to bear and situated within the current international Pentateuchal debate. The research has both confirmed problems with wide-ranging redactional models and affirmed their necessity in explaining complex interweaving of contrasting viewpoints. Traditional notions of Pentateuchal authorship have left unsolved literary and literary-historical problems, especially with respect to the developmental stages apparent in the book of Deuteronomy, a text of critical importance for this study. This dissertation has explored the connections between the prophetically linked tradition of the Plenary Reception of Revelation (PRR; Israelites received direct, unmediated revelation from God as a community) and non-elite levitical priest-prophets based outside of urban centers. The research has shown that they supported this tradition and negotiated with elite priestly supporters of the dominant tradition (the Israelite community did not receive direct but rather mediated divine revelation) in behalf of its survival among the received tradition. In addition to literary analyses, the application of social (including archaeological), political, and legal theories have revealed a close working relationship between these Levites and lay leaders. Through their involvement in the making of Israelite literature, Levites saw to the inclusion of marginalized, âpopularâ traditions in the Hebrew Bible, which otherwise comprises a repository of traditions that affirms âofficialâ perspectives. I have found the following âpopularâ traditions advocated by the Levites to be closely interconnected: the PRR, positive and perhaps repeated experiences of direct encounter with the divine, an expansive notion of Israelite sanctification, and a pronounced openness to alien integration. My research has provided a window through which both the scholars and general readers of the Hebrew Bible can better view the contributions of local, non-elite priests and their lay constituents to the culture and religion of ancient Israel. Advisors/Committee Members: Douglas A. Knight (chair), Jack M. Sasson (committee member), Annalisa Azzoni (committee member), Robert Drews (committee member).
