Amos: A New Translation with Introduction and Commentary
Uppsala University, Disciplinary Domain of Humanities and Social Sciences, Faculty of Theology, Department of Theology.
2017 (English)Book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

While previous scholarship speculated on reconstructions of the life of Amos the prophet, this commentary focuses on the book carrying his name. According to the traditional view, the core of the book of Amos originated in Israel (the Northern Kingfom) around 750 B.CC.E., during a period of peace and prosperity. Opposing this view, the author argues that the first version of this prophetic book was composed several decades later in Judah, and that it served as a reflection on, and a justification of the downfall of the Northern Kingdom in the 720s B.C.E. This hypothesis helps explain why accusations concerning oppression of the poor are followed by proclamations of punishments affecting the entire nation.
