about

This wide-ranging investigation of the priestly cultic texts from Exodus 25 onwards explores the coherence and theology of the priestly writing, utilizing insights from anthropology and recent biblical scholarship. Through a carefully worked out set of laws and institutions, the priestly authors sought to order Israel's life before God in a sustainable and satisfying way. This is a valuable contribution to the growing number of studies concerned to understand and recover this neglected part of the Bible.
Philip P. Jenson teaches Old Testament and Hebrew at Ridley Hall at Cambridge University. His previous publications include Graded Holiness (Sheffield 1992) and Reading Jonah (Grove Books 1999).
