Christian A. Eberhart / Thomas Hieke (Hg.)
Writing a Commentary on Leviticus. Hermeneutics – Methodology – Themes
(Forschungen zur Religion und Literatur des Alten und Neuen Testaments 276), Göttingen: Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht 2019
Writing a commentary on a biblical book is not limited to the scholar’s study and desk. Hence, several experts in the field of Hebrew Bible currently writing a larger commentary on the book of Leviticus followed the invitation of Christian Eberhart and Thomas Hieke to meet between 2014 and 2016 at the Annual SBL Conference. They shared their experiences, discussed hermeneutical and methodological considerations, and presented their ideas about particular themes and issues in the third book of the Torah. The results of these consultative panels had significant impact on the production of the commentaries.
