Sacrificial Rhetoric in the Prophetic Literature of the Hebrew Bible
Uppsala University, Disciplinary Domain of Humanities and Social Sciences, Faculty of Theology, Department of Theology.
2012 (English)Book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

This study aims at exploring the attitudestoward the sacrifi­cial cult that are expressed in the prophetic literature inthe Hebrew Bible. Based on a new understanding of sacrifice, where the key word is reciprocity, it throws new light on a much debated issue:Did prophets like Amos and Jeremiah de­nounce sacrifice as such, or can passages like Amos 5:21-24 be explained in some other way? The textual investigation, which involves historical and rhetorical analyses of carefully selected prophetic passages, aims at proving the validity of the following hypothesis: All utterances on sacrifices in the prophetic literature share a basically positive view of the sacrificialcult as a legitimate means of worship.
