The assumption of an inevitable clash among technology and faith used to be decisively challenged via John Hedley Brooke in his vintage technological know-how and faith: a few old views (Cambridge, 1991). nearly 20 years on, technological know-how and faith: New ancient views revisits this argument and asks how historians can now impose order at the complicated and contingent histories of spiritual engagements with technology.
The Narrative impression of ebook IV of the Hebrew Psalter takes heavily the canonical shape to the textual content and means that there's a narrative influence that happens as a reader of the Hebrew Bible encounters the canonical Psalter. instead of examining the e-book of Psalms as an anthology, the reader can locate lexical and thematic connections in the textual content that inform a narrative.

His vineyard becomes a field that is defiled by Joram's corpse (II Kings 9,26), and Jezreel's soil is where, in II Kings 9, vv. 36-37, the dogs will devour Jezebel's flesh and where she herself will become refuse on the ground. The name of Naboth therefore contains potentials for meaning that could be employed to depict hope for the future, but this does not in fact happen. Precisely by reading the story of Naboth's vineyard in the intertextuality I propose, we realize how different it is in relation to other vineyard narratives.
The Book if Ruth. New International Commentary on the Old Testament. (Grand Rapids, 1988), pp. 4-7. 7 Cf. my intertextual reading of the Book of Job in Kirsten Nielsen, Satan-The Prodigal Son? A Family Problem in the Bible, The Biblical Seminar 50, (Sheffield 1998), pp. 79-81, 99-100, where I interpret Uz and Job. 24 KIRSTEN NIELSEN The first question we must ask is, Why actually a vineyard?

In connection with Qoh. iv 17 repeated references arc made to the prophets (Amos v 22; Hos. vi 6; Isa . i II; Micah vi 6-8; J er. vii 22) and some times to Psalm s (xl 6-8; I 8- 14) and wisdom texts (Prov. IB H ere again, how ever, th e wording and motivation of som e sort of opposition again st sacrificial cult in the prophetical books is completely different from that in Qoheleth.
