Abstract:

In this volume, leading experts in the field of Hebrew Bible writing a larger commentary on the book of Leviticus share their experiences, discuss hermeneutical and methodological considerations, and present their ideas about particular themes and issues. Its first part features essays on the process of writing a Leviticus commentary, including boosts and obstacles, while suggesting innovative insights on particular problems of the book. The second part identifies certain themes of Leviticus such as sacrifices and rituals, the notion of sins and purity/impurity, and the relationship to the sphere of God.
