Chapter Summary

The presence of the oral and written materials incorporated in the deuteronomistic single narrative requires one to pose the question of their origin and history. It is plausible that at the very least research is essential into the two main sources from which the Dtr seem to have drawn: (1) the central legal tradition on which Dt. was built; and (2) the prophetic tradition that the Dtr took as their inspiration, but subjected to substantial corrections. Dtr historian also included many wisdom elements and a few passages with a poetic character in his single narrative. As these Dtr elements offer less certainty, this chapter only addresses their provenance to a limited degree. The treatment focuses on the lasting resonance of the older tradition as it plays a role in the Dtr representation and its contribution to the evolution of the text as evinced in the use of language.

Keywords: central legal tradition; deuteronomistic single narrative; Dtr historian; historiographic components; prophetic tradition; wisdom sources
