Chapter Summary

The first part of this chapter alludes to the subtitle of the book, David and Moses in the Story of the Bible's Kings. From the 3rd century BCE to the 1st century CE the Hebrew Old Testament text was in a situation of textual fluidity, propitious to textual emendations, especially as they are related to the different polemics between Jewish groups, or in the midst of the multiple exegetical tendencies and interpretations. The study of the transmission of the biblical text has to be carried out in connection with the history of the Jewish religion. In the second part, Graeme Auld establishes the Shared Text of Kings and Chronicles through a synoptic comparison of the sequence of the literary units which integrate those two works. The text of LXX 3 Kingdoms represents an older textual form than that which was transmitted by MT Kings and Chronicles.
