The Wilderness Tradition
Central to the Torah is the wilderness tradition, the forty years that Israel spent in Sinai after the exodus from Egypt and before entering the land of Canaan. The book begins by examining the portrayal of the wilderness period in the Torah and then shows that the same perspective is presented throughout the Hebrew Bible, especially in the Prophets and the Psalms. The origins of Israel debate of the past two decades are introduced, as well as how biblical scholars and historians have viewed the narratives set in Sinai. A discussion of the hermeneutical approach used in this study, the contextual approach, is presented.
