Moshe Weinfeld’s contributions to the study of the Bible and its literature, as well as the social and political situation of the Bible in its ancient Near Eastern context, are well known. In this volume, 35 colleagues and students contribute essays organized according to four subjects: (1) Exegetical and Literary Studies on the Bible; (2) Studies on Biblical Hebrew, History, and Geography; (3) Ancient Near Eastern and Amarna Studies; and (4) Studies on Qumran, Post biblical Judaism, and the Jewish Medieval Commentaries. A bibliography and biography of the honoree round out the volume.
