Moses : heroic man, man of God by George W Coats( )

13 editions published between 1987 and 1988 in English and held by 1,377 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dr Coats, widely recognized for his work over two decades on the Pentateuchal traditions, here presents us with his distinctive portrait of Moses. George Coats identifies two strands in the Moses tradition, the tradition of the hero who represents the people of God, and that of the 'man of God', distinctly unheroic in folkloristic terms, who represents God to the people. This duality in the portrayal of Moses becomes evident already in the call narrative of Exodus 3, a narrative that should not be divided between J and E but reflects the most ancient perception of the character Moses and his s

Together the two volumes comprise the whole of Coats's unique and wide-ranging investigations of the figure of Moses

Genesis, with an introduction to narrative literature by George W Coats( Book )

In the introduction to this volume, George Coats discusses narrative in general and the principal Old Testament narratives in particular.

A bibliography heads each chapter, and a shorter bibliography of relevant works appears at the end of each unit. The book concludes with genre and formula files, which list all the relevant genres and formulas and the texts in which they occur

Exodus 1-18 by George W Coats( Book )

9 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 386 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The present study provides a form-critical analysis of the first eighteen chapters of the book of Exodus. Dividing his discussion between the Exodus and Moses traditions and the wilderness traditions, Coats examines each unit of the text of Exodus in turn, showing how the units' internal structures reveal the genre and social setting in which the book was written and what that setting and genre mean for proper interpretation
Numbers by Rolf P Knierim( Book )

9 editions published between 2004 and 2014 in English and held by 366 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Under the guidelines of the FOTL series, the primary task of this commentary is not to reconstruct the historical growth of the book of Numbers itself. In this commentary, the growth process is presupposed in principle, but referred to in specifics with restraint. The form-critical interpretation reveals the active involvement of many generations of Israelite narrators and writers in the ongoing adaptation of their most important ancient story, and their conceptualization of its significance for their own and for future generations. - Publisher
